It’s been a week of questions, and thankfully (for these at least), I do have answers. I was recently selected by a couple bloggers to answer the following questions, but I’ve also answered a few on Formspring lately as well. Have you got a question? You can always ask it anonymously—just go to Grit and Glamour on Formspring.
•• Questions from Tex of Fashion Butter ••
Do you wear a watch?
Yes. Most of the time.
What types of things do you refuse to spend money on? Splurge on?
Hair products. I always come back to Pantene no matter how expensive the other stuff is or what it claims to do. I splurge on shoes and bags. If that wasn’t already terrifyingly apparent.
The best concert you have ever attended?
The Cult and Billy Idol back in the late ’80s. Ian Astbury (with the long hair) and Billy Idol, both in their prime. Need I say more?
What’s the oldest piece of clothing you still own and wear?
My BCBG black jersey skirt. 13 years of year-round wear, and holding.
How do you *really* feel about cat print rompers?
I suppose it depends on the romper. And the wearer.
What towns/cities have you lived in over the years?
I’ve only lived in three different cities. Sydney, Australia is one of them. What a trip that was, literally and figuratively.
Hot sauce … evil or yummy?
Yummy. But if we’re talking sauces, then the yummiest of the lot is the foie gras truffle butter sauce at Peninsula Grill in Charleston. Now you’re speaking my language.
•• Questions from Anika of Sweetfaced Style ••
What is your passion?
Writing. Fashion and style. Great food and great drinks with great company!
What would you do if you had the guts to?
I’d open my own boutique. And it would be swank, hi-fi, and like no other. Anyone want to lend me a few mil?
Do you smile at strangers?
I do when I’m walking by them on the sidewalk or if they smile at me.
What pisses you off?
Betrayal. And dishonesty…which is betrayal. Cruelty to animals and children. And when people don’t say thank you when I hold the door for them.
What makes you laugh out loud with joy?
Some of the things my parents and nephew say.
What is the best choice you have made this far in life?
Going back to school and getting my Master’s degree. It opened up so many doors for me.
What is the one question you secretly want to be asked?
I’m an angel investor…how much money would you like for your startup?
•• My Questions ••
In turn, I am supposed to select bloggers and ask them my own set of questions. Aren’t I lucky…I get to nominate 16 of you to share more about yourselves. I’ve tried not to select those who may have already been selected by others. But if I did, please forgive me.
Oh, and of course, if you don’t want to answer, that’s cool, and if you’re not on the list, who cares! You can always answer on your blog anyway. I love reading everyone’s answers. It’s so much more interesting than just passing on awards, isn’t it?
