Take Me Out to the Runway has been tagged!

For the first time ever, Take Me Out to the Runway has been tagged! Thank you so much, Style Antagonist for giving me this opportunity! So, here goes:

What is your current obsession?

Oh, I can't pick just one! In fashion, for instance, I'm obsessed with the Balenciaga knock-offs by Sam Edelman ... I'm still waiting for those gorgeous ankle boots to be available! Some not-so-current, but more of "all the time" obsessions of mine: Jesse McCartney (met him 3 times!), The Titanic (the story, the movie, basically anything to do with the actual event as well), reading, writing, and going to concerts! (My latest one was "Tool" ... it was unbelievable.)

What is your horoscope & do you relate to it?

I think that this is a fabulous question! I'm an Aquarius. Ironically enough, I'm almost exactly how my sign is described: friendly and humanitarian, honest and loyal, original and inventive, independent and intellectual. Aquarius' (or Aquari? Not sure how this term would be used ...) are supposed to be strong-willed, and I've been told I am strong-willed and passionate about anything I believe in. So, I'd say I definately relate to my horoscope!

What are you wearing today?

Today, today ... well, right now I'm in my PJ's, so I'll tell you what I wish I was wearing, based on my mood! Dark wash denim skinnies, gold flats, a plain white tee-shirt, a gold belt, and my 823 Key Necklace. Oh, and my thick-rimmed glasses. It's always nice to be able to see when you're comfortable!

What is the last thing you bought?

The last thing that I bought were these absolutely amazing shoes. They're charcoal grey slouchy ankle boots with a three-inch heel. I'm simply in love with them. Plus, I got them from my place of employment, so they were 10% off! There's nothing better than a bargain.

What do you think about the person who tagged you?

I think their blog is FANTASTIC! Seriously, check it out. This girl has amazing style, and she's an excellent writer. The best combination ever!

What’s for dinner?

I ate McDonald's ... yes, I'm clearly a health-freak ...

What’s your favorite decade, fashion wise?

This is easy! Definately the Renaissance period. I love big, full skirts and original draping, deep colors like crimson and royal purple, and feeling like a princess every day. The best way I can describe this style is by linking Sea of Shoes ... Jane has my favorite style exactly.

What are your must haves for summer?

Aviator sunglasses! Oh, and sunblock. I tend to burn VERY easily!

What would you love to be able to afford?

Oh, what wouldn't I love to be able to afford? A few of the things that come to mind: the original Balenciaga ankle boots, every piece by Alexander Wang and Alexander McQueen, a house on the beach, a room with floor to ceiling book shelves, season tickets to the Boston Red Sox, and a vacation to Italy, Greece, and Ireland!

What is your favorite piece of clothing from your own wardrobe?

Oh, this is hard! I'd have to say either my little black dress from Bebe, my cream-colored blazer, or my army green Bebe zip-up short-sleeve shirt ... ah, I love Bebe!

What is your dream job?

Editor-in-chief of ELLE or TeenVogue magazine.

What’s your favorite magazine?

At the moment, probably ELLE, although I have yearly subscriptions to like, 7 different ones. Fashion magazines: another one of my many obsessions!

What do you consider a fashion faux pas?

I have never liked Spring scarves ... I find them an awkward mix of winter and summer, which I absolutely detest. Teeny-tiny skirts, as well; you should be aiming to look classy, not trashy, at all times.

Describe your personal style:

Unique. There will be some days where I'm decked out in neon colors, some days where I'm in earth-tones ... but I've never liked looking the same as everyone else. I've been known to wear something that someone would "never wear in a million years", but most of the time, I'm praised for my boldness. Life's too short to blend in!

Which Beatle is your favorite?

Either John Lennon or Paul McCartney. Their songs always struck a chord within me; I feel like I can relate with their music the most.

What are you proud of?

Honestly, I'm more proud of this blog than anything. It has become exactly what I've always wanted it to be, and it brings me to tears sometimes how kind people can be on their comments. Thank you, everyone!

And I tag ... everyone! Let me know when you've posted your answers ... I can't wait to read them! I'd love to know a bit more about all of my readers.

  1. oh, cute! thanks for sharing!

  2. Ah, you are such a cutie! I love your ethusitic attitude. I was laughing because i recieved this tag quite a while back and decided to replace a question with the beatles question (being a freak fan), and all over the place people are answering it!

  3. I love these interviews, you get to know bloggers a bit more :)! I have the dream of being a fashion editor of a magazine (one that I want to create lol). Don't worry with effort I'm sure you'll make it! Jessy McCartney, I screamed with my BFF when we saw him in a Suites Life episode jajajaja. Oh and teeny tiny mini's do make a trashy look. And I always try to be different too, even though people laugh (bah, who cares, they don't know about fashion). Love your answers!
    Sincerely Louie, Ciao!

  4. i want to open my own magazine. I burn so easily too and always have so much trouble finding good sunscreen that is non greasy non smelly and spf 50.
