Lace Describes Me

Well hello there!

I don't know if any of you read Reese Witherspoon's interview in the May edition of ELLE UK? No, yes? Well, this is what jumped out at me: "I would probably summarise my whole personality by saying I'm very... cardigan." What comes to your mind when you think of cardigans? I think cardigans are comforting, soft & welcoming. Reese described herself very well, because that is what I feel her personality is like.

I have another question for you: What material do you feel best describes you? I'll go first. Lace. Yes. I feel lace describes my personality best. Why? Here are five reasons:

1. Lace has its diva moments. So do I.
2. Lace can be delicate & fussy. It needs to be handled with care, but it can be quite resilient. I can be quite fussy. Sometimes I need to be handled with care. I can be resilient. Sometimes.
3. Lace may appear stuffy, but it can have just a good time as outgoing leather and care free jersey. I can party as hard as the best of them. Life's too short not to.
4. Sometimes lace can be shy. Case in point: undergarments. I can be shy. I like my own space too.
5. Lace can be racy, elegant and chic. Sometimes, I wish I was all three.

So, now it is your turn......what material best describes you. Whether you are leather, velvet, silk, jersey etc, you choose and let me know!






P.S. It appears I am back after a bit of a break. What caused this break? Mid month blogger creative block crisis? Too much technology for one head to bear? Lack of motivation? Truthfully, all three. But I am back with all (hopefully) my creativeness supporting me this time.

Oh yes, lace is lovely indeed, but my favorite fabric is definitely velvet! Lace is in second place though :D

i'd say i'm denim - comfy, mellow, laid back, goes with lots of styles, versatile :)
cool post bye the way!

I thought Reese was a Type A so perhaps a cardigan with a silk lining would be more apt. I'm more a jersey dress with leather trimming!

Fun post! I's like to think I'm wool - soft, warm and comforting : )

I love that you can pin your personality on a type of garment/fabric! Hmm, I'm not quite sure what I am. Maybe cotton: versatile, environmentally-friendly ;), can be casual and can also be dressy!
