Tagged by the gorgeous My Fashionality and the stunning Miss Likey to complete the following questionnaire...
WHAT IS YOUR HOROSCOPE & DO YOU RELATE TO IT?
I’m a Scorpio; apparently they (we?) are reported to be mercurial, passionate and creative, so yes! That rings true for CC!
WHAT ARE YOU WEARING TODAY?
This Loeffler Randall dress from twentythirtyforty.net, these Chloé sandals, and a I have a short fitted navy blazer in case I get cold (A/C and all…). Handbag, Botkier (natch).
WHAT IS THE LAST THING YOU BOUGHT?
This Mason zipper dress from twentythirtyforty.net.
WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THE PEOPLE WHO TAGGED YOU?
Miss Likey and My Fashionality are both so fabulously fashionable, and their posts are always a joy to behold!
WHAT'S FOR DINNER?
Oysters and Sancerre. Delish.
WHAT'S YOUR FAVOURITE DECADE, FASHION WISE?
Well, CC is obsessed with Mad Men right now, so the early 1960s!
WHAT ARE YOUR MUST HAVES FOR SUMMER?
T dresses, flat sandals, and summer-weight scarves. Tolani scarf at chickdowntown.com.
WHAT WOULD YOU LOVE TO BE ABLE TO AFFORD?
Anything by Balmain or Rodarte (runway photo via style.com).
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PIECE OF CLOTHING FROM YOUR OWN WARDROBE?
This fabulous pair of Lauren Urstadt gloves. CC can’t wait til there’s a little nip in the air so she can get away with donning these beauties. Visit shop.laurenurstadtny.com.
WHAT IS YOUR DREAM JOB?
I’m doing it! Sadly, I won’t ever be able to retire on this meager “salary”, but my occupation as a fashion blogger (and part-time Pilates instructor) sure is fabulous!
WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE MAGAZINE?
Vogue.
WHAT DO YOU CONSIDER A FASHION FAUX PAS?
Wearing something that makes one uncomfortable (psychologically, not physically). Tasha Tilberg at Viktor & Rolf, via nymag.com.
DESCRIBE YOUR PERSONAL STYLE:
Eclectic yet sophisticated. Right now, I am loving patterned dresses. I am currently wearing them with bare legs and chunky heeled sandals, but come fall I’ll be pairing printed frocks with equally exiting tights and booties! Issa printed silk jersey dress, at theOutnet.com.
WHAT ARE YOU PROUD OF?
Posting on Couture Carrie for 500+ consecutive days!
WHAT ARE YOU SMITTEN WITH THAT YOU WANT TO SHARE WITH YOUR FELLOW FASHIONISTAS?

Loved reading these tags! I think your obsessions are fabulous - those P.Hardy heels are stunning! I can also relate to the printed dresses... I couldn't stop buying them last summer and now I have a whole wardrobe full. Hope you had a lovely weekend!

I love the first glasses. I am pretty sick of mine alr..

Kristin said...

I LOVE this...wearing something that makes one uncomfortable psychologically. You said it sister! Oh and Balmain tortures me on a fairly regular basis!

WendyB said...

Those Pierre Hardy shoes are great.

♥Aubrey said...

You featured one of my favorite Vogue covers ever. I have never seen Natalia Vodianova look more gorgeous than she does there. All dewy-faced and glossy nude lips. Simply divine photo!

Ooh, Fifi Flowers is one of my favorites. Her work is so high fashion yet whimsical. Fabulous giveaway, darling! :)

The Little Fashion Treasury said...

stylewithbenefits said...

Hey CC! Always enjoy reading your tags.. very cool that you're also a Pilates instructor. Enrolling in a Pilates class is near the top of my 'to do' list. LOVE those statement glasses and the blue asymmetrical dress! And I'm with you that if I won some dough tomorrow, it would def. go towards anything Balmain!

xo, Becs

Wanderlusting said...

This is one of the best answers yet - I totally love that you are doing what you love and that it trumps having lots of money. Also I totally agree with this statement: Wearing something that makes one uncomfortable (psychologically, not physically).

La Belette Rouge said...

Oooh, who is that last dress by? I would feel psychologically sound in that dress and worthy of sitting for a portrait by gorgeous Fifi.

Delmy said...
