Favorite Movies The fashion in Marie Antoinette with Kirsten Dunst is pretty amazing. And, although the Captain chose to marry Maria in the Sound of Music, I think he missed out on a pretty stylish dame when he said good bye to Elsa Schraeder. Loved Cher's 90's preppy meets sexy style in Clueless, especially the knee high leg wear.
Favorite Music If I were a fashion designer, I would send my models down the runway while playing "Erase and Rewind" by The Cardigans. Best album to get dressed up to is Love.Angel.Music.Baby. by Gwen Stefani.
Favorite Books Every girl needs to own “What to Wear, Where” by Hillary Kerr and Katherine Power. Consider it your wardrobe Bible.

You've got to make contact with the alien leader. How will you tell when the conversation is finished?

She will leave to go shopping after I tell her where I bought my shoes and for how much.
