On Fashion, An interview with myself. Because no one else asked.

Sarah sits in bed with the September issue of Vogue laid out in her lap. Her bed clothes consist of cut off Victoria Secret pajama pants and a nursing tank top from Target. Her hair is greasy but brushed ( at least) and the large zit on her forehead says " Yes I'm a mother but I'm still youthful enough to have embarrassing acne." She looks relaxed. 
S:Do you love Fashion? s: Yes, I think do. Love is a strong word but I do feel emotional and excited over the world of fashion, designers, beautiful clothing and accessories. It's a lot of fun!
S: Do you consider yourself a fashionista? s: that word kind of implies twittiness and immaturity to me, so no.
S: How do you dress day to day? s: Most days I am wearing an embarrassing ensemble consisting of shorts, and plain T-shirts or tank tops. I often look at cute comfy dresses and think to myself "this would be cute to just wear at home or out to the grocery store" but usually I just throw on the most casual thing in my closet for being at home with my baby and running out to do errands. I see bloggers or other women on TV saying "take time to make yourself look good in the morning no matter what" and I'm like "ya! that sounds good!" But in reality it's just kind of silly to spend 15 minutes making my self look nice when there are 10 other things to be done. Unfortunately I only put together a cute looking outfit once or twice a week, usually for church. But I do usually get compliments! And it does make me feel good to look nice. But every day? As a stay at home Mom? I just can't muster the energy.
S: Would you say that you have good taste? s: yes, when it counts I think I do have good taste. I love planning a particular look for certain special occasions.
S: What are your favorite brands/stores s: Fave 5 are: J crew, Anthropologie, Madewell, French Connection and Gap! If I ever had mega millions my luxury store of choice would be Barney's.
S: If you could own something amazing from one REAL designer who would it be? s: I think I would have to go with a real clothing item from Chanel. Like an iconic jacket. I also love handbags by YSL
S: What are your favorite trends for Fall? s: Peplums, polka dots and collars. I just bought  a cheap pair of polka dot jeans from JCpenny, I think it's a good idea to choose a trend that you like for the particular season and find something cheap that embodies it. Instead of spending big bucks on a likely fleeting look. But why buy it if it's not gonna last forever and be great? Well, for one I think they are cute, but I also think adding a current trend to your outfit says "yes I pay attention". I always admire that when I see anther girl's outfit involving a well executed trend. On the other hand I never like trashy or cheap looking trends. Like the whole hooker heel platform shoe thing? I find very few of those shoes  attractive.
S: What are your most special/favorite items in your closet? s: Hmmmm, my Lucchese cowboy boots, a couple nice handbags that Paul has given me, French Connection dresses, and my small vintage jewelry/accessory collection.
S: Why do you care about fashion? s: Because beautiful clothing, well put together outfits, and interesting looking fabrics are so inspiring and exciting to me! It makes me want to go home and try and make something equally exciting.
