Love. This. My 10:

1) My tendency to wear large cocktail rings anywhere with anything - grocery stores, the office...no cocktail party is required for me! :)

2) My inability to resist wearing boots, even when the temperature is over 100*.

3) My obsession for big, wild hair - teased or simply out of control; I love it all!

4) My affinity for leopard print ballerina flats.

5) My penchant for embracing all things boyfriend - cardigans, tees, jeans.

6) My cravings for lacy unmentionables.

7) My chameleon-like fashion flavor...one day I'm dressed to attend a cocktail party; the next, I'm casual with a dash of grunge.

8) My appreciation for flowy, carefree, hippie-inspired bohemian style.

9) My love for beauty and fashion on a budget.

10) My adoration for statement nail polish.

Oh, CC, thanks for posting this! You are such a sweetheart. Love the photos! x

Sweety P said...

Love your picks as usual! Sorry, I haven't been commenting for a while, but I'm back! I think what makes my style unique is I am willing to try any style once just to see if it works or not. I like taking risks!

10 Things That Makes RV’s Style Unique:

1) Overdressing. ALWAYS.
2) Excentricity, but balanced.
3) Wearing miniskirts and microshorts and microdresses even with -20°C. ( Skiing, for example )
4) ( following three: ) tights, headbands, jewels, and LOTS of accesorizing.
5) I don't buy ANYTHING in Geneva ( except Zara's basics, but that doesn't count ). So I've always italian shoes, dutch vintage items, etc. etc...
6) boots and leather jackets. Two of my 'signatures'
7) Literature and film's inspirations. Mixxes between 80' and 60'
8) Oxymora. Preppy-punk, bon ton-rock, etc. etc. I can't be cathegorized.
9) ( following 8 ) I'm total eclectic.
10) Masculine garderobe. Especially cardigans or shirts... I love men's shirts. The simplest the best. Like Audrey in BAT'
