1. What’s your favorite piece of clothing that you currently own?
Hmmm, I’d have to say it’s my Birthday Suit. It fits me like a glove. Second to that would be a black knit 3-piece trio of shirt, jacket and slacks. The fabric is a wonderfully draping, sort of shiny knit. It is so comfortable and it’s flattering. I like my Birthday Suit, but it looks a whole lot better when clad in my black suit. 🙂
2. What piece of clothing do you most want to acquire?
I would love to find a soft cotton knit sweater that’s actually long enough for my torso and arms. Something generously cut and comfortingly casual.
3. What piece of clothing can you not bring yourself to get rid of? Why?
I have a few…I garden, so I have several loose, stained t-shirts which are irreplaceable for working out in the yard. They look horrid, but I figure no one expects a person to look her best when she’s out sweating in the sun and has dirt and mulch adhering to nearly every surface….Right?

5. What has been your biggest fashion accident?
Well, none of it was an accident; I did these things on purpose. But I was a teenager, so I was insane. That said… Gosh, probably the 80’s. Tight, tight jeans with a bandana tied around one leg, just above the knee. Tank tops (or, worse, tube tops) overlaid by open-weave mesh. Spiked hair in front, long hair in back – no graceful transition between the two lengths. Oh, and legwarmers. I need to find the photo of when I dressed up with some friends and went to Max & Erma’s restaurant on my friend’s birthday. We really thought we were dressed to the nines, too.
