What accessories do you wear everyday?

Watch. Silver hoop earrings. In the winter I wear a scarf every day, and on the coldest days I wear my hat, even inside. It's a plain black fleece hat and it goes with everything. I am not big on a lot of flair.

B: What is your beauty routine?

Take a shower, moisturize appendages with that Aveeno stuff (I save the Weleda Skin Food for my elbows and hands and feet, which get super super dry), do face with some stuff from Body Shop, scent with several different oils from Body Shop (lately). Makeup is always black eyeliner (tip lash line only), mascara, and Body Shop lip pencil in a deep pinky-browny-red. I'm pretty low-maintenance and can be "ready", including shower, in about 20 minutes. I wash my hair twice a week because it's quite long and v thick and takes two days to dry anyway.


C: What was the last item of clothing (for yourself) that you purchased?

I got some excellent Gap jeans at the thrift. I just got my Frye boots resoled and reheeled, so... new to me again!

D: Do you use a dresser, closet, or both?

I have a weird clothing storage situation right now. I have a closet, a big bin, and a huge ancient chicken egg incubator thing. It's totally awesome. Pictures don't do it justice. It's perfect for storing clothes, though.

E: What type of earrings are in your ears right now?
Small silver hoops. I really don't like earrings.

F: What type of figure do you have (measurements)?

I'm about 5'11" and have very broad shoulders, long arms, and long legs. Statuesque.

G: Do you wear glasses?

No, but I probably need them. I am now 40 and squint a lot.

H: What type of handbag do you carry?

Tiny little bag, brown.

I: What is your ideal style?

Belle de Jour meets indie rock librarian meets Jil Sander suited MILF?

J: What is your favorite brand of jeans?

Levi's 501s.

K: Do you wear knee-hi stockings?

Knee high socks, yes. Preferably wool, with loud stripes.

L: Do you *have* to wear matching lingerie?

Nope. Someday, maybe.

M: Do you wear makeup?

Yes, but not much.

N: Do you wear nightgowns?

Nope. Yoga pants and tank tops, mostly.

O: What outerwear do you put on when going out on a typical winters day?

Land's End jacket or leather trench, depending on where I'm going. Hat. Gloves. Scarf.

P: What is your favorite perfume?

I wear a mix of Body Shop stuff or a mix of essential oils. I have always deeply loved most of the Chanel scents, esp Coco.

Q: Is your motto "quality over quantity" when it comes to clothing and accessories?

I can get quality AND quantity on a good thrifting day. I tend to buy decent shoes (Frye, Dansko).

R: Do you wear rain boots?

No, but I really wanted a pair for those rainy Saturdays managing the Market. Next season!

S: Do you wear socks or slippers when your feet get cold?

I really want new slippers. Something like this would be OK:

T: Do you have a set of travel luggage?

No. Just a suitcase.

U: What is your daily uniform?

Black pants, t-shirt, cardigan or V neck, black shoes/boots at work. Occasionally a skirt. A jacket if the occasion calls for it. Jeans (or cutoffs) and T shirt at home.

V: If you are married, did you wear a veil with your wedding dress? If not, how did you do your hair?

No veil. I had a massive amount of hair at the time and I went somewhere to have it braided and flowered up.

W: Do you wear a watch?

I wear the cheap black digital when i'm outside or working the Market, and the groovy orange watch to work or when I go out.

X: What item of clothing always makes you feel beautiful?

A really good sexy/serviceable dress. I have a black shift that fits this bill, but I need to take it to someone to get it worked on.

Y: What is your favorite type of yarn?

The kind Jeanne spins.

Z: Do you prefer zippers or buttons?

Buttons.

I haven't been on here in months and months....came to look for the hand with roots for the poster presentation I'm sweating over right now the title? Produce to the People? Race, Socioeconomics and Food Store Accessibility. I wish I wasn't so freaking sick. I hope I'm not on Saturday when I have to stand in front of said poster and answer questions about it!

How would you like some of that yarn you like? I have a bunch I will never knit and I am in full declutter mode. You might have to dye it though unless you're into white.

I totally want to see that presentation. I'm sad you're sick - there is some awful shit going around and I hope you recover soon.

I'd take some yarn, sure. Maybe I'd even dye it!

The poster artist's name is Eric Drooker, in case you didn't find it...
