Chessa! said...

I love this list....all lists actually. I have a lot of similar answers to yours:) I LOVE Hanky Panky! LOVE. Aix-en-Provence is one of my favorite places in the world too. But I have to say that I would love to be Christy Turlington and have Heidi Klum's body. btw, have you made your way to the Met yet to see the Model as Muse exhibit. It's right up your alley! You will LOVE it! I was just there and I loved every minute...

Elizabeth Marie said...

I'm with you on being vain about hair CC...that's why I started my blog haha! And the Scarlett Jo dress is one of my favs of all time, such a great answer!
Plum Sykes needs to hurry up and write more books!! Bergdorf Blondes is my absolute favorite book ever and the Debutante Divorce was great too, did you like it?

Love this tag, I think it's my blog for tomorrow!
XOXO,
EM

Cammila said...

This is an awesome peek into your head! Even though we may never know the story behind Carrie Cucumber! ;)

TheBeautyFile said...

Ah-mazing! I am totally going to copy/paste this after my finals are done! I can't believe you want to do away with jean shorts over tights...even the bleached shorts over hot pink tights? lolol
