Questions About Moi!

mFw was sweet enough to tag me in some blog fun! Be sure to check out her blog - her posts are always so cute and fun and preppy. Plus she is hosting a great CSN giveaway right now!

Here are my answers to her questions:

What is your favorite decorating item or theme?
I love anything chinoiserie. I recently purchased a lovely bamboo style mirror similar to the one in the picture below. And I'm always on the look out for pretty blue and white china!

Favorite thing to get in the mail?
I loooove getting mail. I love surprise packages and letters. I also get really excited to receive something I've ordered (even though it's not a suprise). I also look forward to seeing US Weekly in my mailbox every week!
Something you're looking forward to?
I SHOULD say my wedding, but certain parts of the planning are stressing me out a little bit right now! What I am without a doubt looking forward to is living with my fiance! My lease isn't up for awhile so it won't be until right before the wedding, but I'm definitely excited for it!
Favorite fall clothing item?
I love boots! I really like the black suede boots I bought last fall, but my true love is riding boots. I really like the ones below from French brand Rectiligne. Speaking of, a pair of Frye riding boots (worn only a handful of times and in excellent condition) are still available on my blog sale here.

Favorite designer?
This is a tough one! I'm going to go with Lilly Pulitzer because each collection is consistently amazing. That's one of the reasons why Lilly is so special. I'll often walk into an ordinary mall store like the Gap or JCrew and find very few things I like in a particular season. Same thing sometimes with bigger stores like Nordstrom! It's not that there aren't things that I LIKE, but there aren't things that shout "You need to own me!" But I can never walk out of a Lilly store empty handed! :)
Favorite pattern?
OK, it may not count as a pattern (it's definitely more of a fabric), but I adore brocade. I have this ivory color brocade coat that is one of my favorite pieces of clothing ever. My mom lectures me whenever I wear it because she thinks brocade isn't for day (lies!) and that it is too "light" for winter. BAH! I love it and I say it's perfect! I do have to admit it is perfect for wearing over formal clothes when it's a bit chilly out.

Favorite boy and girl name?
I love the name Connor for a boy and Caroline for a boy.
Fun fact about yourself?
My ancestors came over on the Mayflower! Someone once told me that there is a group of other people with the same background, but I've never had a chance to look into it! Maybe someday!

OK, here are my questions!
1. What is your dream job?
2. Favorite Halloween costume idea?
3. Favorite dish to bring to a party or potluck?
4. Favorite magazine?
5. Best restaurant you've ever been to?
6. Favorite thing about fall?
7. Most romantic love song in your opinion?
8. Current item at the top of your shopping wishlist?
And I tag:
Hope you're having a great week!
