Titillating Tags

I. Tagged by lovely Fellow Fashionistas Jaime of la vie… j’aime and Crystal of Plush Palette with stating 7 Unique Things about CC:
1) I have a serious penchant for overdressing. Japanese Numero, March 2009.
2) I’ve had actual conversations with celebs such as Alec Baldwin, Ivanka Trump, Adam Sandler and Sandra Bullock (she goes by “Sandy”).
3) My given name is Catherine but I have gone by “Carrie” for as long as I can remember. And my initials really are CC ~ short for Carrie Critton (and Couture Carrie)!
4) I was a gymnast before I hit my growth spurt at age 13. Now I’m 5’ 10”. Photo from the Silvereye Series by Guido Argentini, courtesy Fellow Fashionista Nearly Stylish.
5) I have always been a blonde but am seriously considering going red this winter. Numero, June 2009.
6) I am obsessed with sexy stockings. This photo courtesy Fellow Fashionista Style Justice.
7) My bed is positively teeming with throw pillows. French Vogue, September 2009.
II. Tagged by the lovely Janet of Janetteria with stating 5 Little Things That Make CC Happy:
1) Fashion Week! Zac Posen gown via style.com.
2) Cocktail Hour. This photo courtesy Fellow Fashionista Etrapar.
3) Blue suede shoes. Bazaar, September 2009.
4) Fresh peaches.
5) Playing dress-up (even if I’m the only one to see it!). Visit bodykandi.com for more fun outfits like this.
Also want to thank Fellow Fashionista LuLu for the lovely tag. CC is tagging all of her Fellow Fashionistas with completing either or both of these fun memes!

Suusje Q. said...

You're great! And I think you should go red! I've thought about it as well, but since I've always been a brunette I think it doesn't match my teint...

About teints.. I love your new profile picture with Sasha P.

Girl Japan: April Marie said...

I would do anything for a peach (that kinda sounded a bit weird) but fruit here is, esp peaches are the LV of fruit!

I've never had a name necklace, I think my name is TOOO long, I wonder if it would fit!

It must be getting cooler now? It always snows here in Tokyo but nothing like Back East...

Carrie said...

I'm also thankful for your blog because you keep me informed on all the latest fashion trends. I find so much inspiration from the runway pictures that you select. Thanks for blogging, Carrie and for sharing your knowledge of fashion with others :)
