The lovely Cocorosa tagged me for some blog soul-spilling...

What is your current obsession?
Netflix, I spend way too much time rating movies and adding things to my queue.

Lots of things… sew, dance (not-so-ridiculously), more Adobe Illustrator skills

What's the last thing you bought?
a khaki skirt, a sparkly black t-shirt, and a black bandage dress – all from H&M

What are you listening to right now?
a strange mix of things on my iPod: Hall & Oats (go ahead and judge, I don’t care), Lady Gaga (obv.), Wilco, Sheena Easton, the Sounds, Corb Lund, and Reckless Kelly

What is your favorite weather?
Fall weather, when it’s getting cooler, but still light out after I leave work

cleaning my apartment in a timely manner

What do you think about the person who tagged you?
she’s very creative and I’m envious of her vintage-hunting/design skills

If you could have a house totally paid for, fully furnished anywhere in the world, where would you like it to be?

gray

Natalia Vodianova

If you had $100 now, what would you spend it on?
something I most likely don’t need

Favorite designer?
Ricardo Tisci

My new Jeffrey Campbell shoes

What do you consider a fashion faux pas?
Not being yourself… - cocorosa’s words, but I couldn’t have said it better.

Chloe Sevigny, Lady Gaga (sorry, I’m predictable), Julie Budet of Yelle, Daphne Guinness

Describe your personal style?
not consistent, really

What are you going to do after this?
Watch the rest of War, Inc then the new episode of Make Me a Supermodel

What would you love to see come back in fashion?
intricate, delicate jewelry

What is would you be doing right now if you have no work/school/responsibilities/general obligations to anyone or anything?
Going to a bar with friends

the rules:
1. respond and rework; answer the questions on your blog, replace one question that you dislike with a question of your invention, add one more question of your own?
2. Tag eight other people

I apologize if you've already done this. If so, feel free to ignore :-)
