you think you know me but you, have no idea.

[title: lyrics of ‘Bout It’, from Step Up]

I’ve been tagged by the lovely Brigadeiro to complete these fun little questions! 


A bit similar to my outfit maintenant. I daresay that it is inarguable that Miss Lohan looks incredible in this editorial.

What are you wearing now?

Black blazer with satin trims over a fitted, white tank. Worn with a pair of medium wash skinnies and patent peep-toe pumps. Black, of course.

What’s the last thing you read/are currently reading?

The current issue of Elle magazine (US) whilst ogling at Kate Hudson’s outfits from the issue beforehand. I do wish to start reading a book, but, once again, a lack of time prevents me from doing so! Oh! I am currently in the midst of re-reading Pride & Prejudice. It’s sitting on my nightstand, along with the four other books I’ve started but never finished. Including President Obama’s first narrative. And some philosophical book that’s quite fantastic.

Do you nap a lot? / Who was the last person you hugged?

Time is of the essence! Nope! / My best friend.

What’s your current obsession/addiction?  Singular? Quite impossible to choose one. Blogging, Elle, Harper’s Bazaar, window shopping online, sweaters, black boots, cocktail rings, Julia Restoin-Roitfeld, green tea.

Which item from you closet are you wearing most lately?  I tend not to repeat my clothing within a month’s time. But I think my jeans get the most wear! They are a wardrobe staple for me!

What’s for dinner?  The most delicious salad ever made, and mash potatoes & gravy. The salad consists of: fresh baby spinach, yellow pepper, orange pepper, red pepper, stripped rotisserie chicken, sliced boil eggs, and ranch dressing. It’s quite the colorful salad; aesthetically pleasing too! 

What was the last thing you bought?

A gorgeous crocheted top, black, with butterfly sleeves. It’s quite easy to see that I have a penchant for these type of tops (keep reading and you shall see!). It’s heavily knitted, but the holes make it the perfect spring/fall top. Gorgeous, really. And only $48!


Love, love, love. Period.

What are you listening to right now?

“Jai Ho” from the soundtrack of Slumdog Millionaire. A truly brilliant piece, mind you, with the most incredible beats. Any choreography to this particular song would be, to say the least, sick.

If you could have any super power, what would it be?


To be able to read people’s mind. Saves the hassle of dealing with boys who cannot make up their minds, or can’t seem to communicate properly. ;] I just like to know how others think, really – it’s quite fascinating! 

What is your favorite weather, and why?
If you said season I would have had quite the hard time. But my favorite weather? Around late August to October/November, when fall starts to kick in. It’s still warm enough to wear shorts or tights and look sane, yet cold enough to wear darling little sweaters.

What time do you usually get up?  Oh, around 7:15 a.m. or so.

 What is your most challenging goal right now?  

Keeping myself from stressing out!

Say something to the person who tagged you:  If you should ever tire of your closet, don’t hesitate to send the unwanted garments my way! In fact, I’ll give you my address… ;]

If you could have a house–totally paid for, fully furnished–anywhere in the world, where would you want it to be? 

New York City or Paris. Then my life would be complete.

I love how the Chanel jacket is understated with a pair of beat-up jeans.

I love how the Chanel jacket is understated with a pair of beat-up jeans.

Favorite vacation spot? 

Anywhere in Europe!

What is your favorite item of clothing? 

Only one? This is ridiculously hard. At the moment, it is a (surprise surprise) black, butterfly/batwing top with a deep v-neck. I love everything about it; the lightweight knit allows versatility in any season; it’s cut allows it to be dressed up or down; and it can be worn off the shoulders or on, depending on how sexy I feel like being ;].

Favorite pair of shoes you keep going back to over & over, even though your closet is overflowing with a zillion others?  My trusty black boots; with a stacked heel of, oh, say three inches. The most comfortable pair of shoes I own, really. I wear them with nearly everything! And how I wish my closet was overflowing with shoes…

Name one thing you cannot live without:

My laptop. My not-so-little baby, a.k.a. my life! Without it I cannot type away when I have an idea or revelation, blog about my little heart’s desires, seek inspiration, ogle at items I will never be able to afford, talk with friends, and perhaps research for actual, constructive purposes. It also happens to have my entire iTunes library (and as you all know by now, music is my obsession/passion/love); it acts as my speakers, so I can dance around whilst typing away fervently.

What time is bed time?  

Usually around 12 p.m. However, I don’t fall asleep until the ungodly hours of the morning. Insomniac, you can say. But I prefer nocturnal. I do love the night life. 

If you could wake up anywhere tomorrow morning, where would it be? 

In New York City, in my own apartment or flat of some sort, in the arms of James Franco. Oh I kid about the last part. But it would quite lovely… 

Still curious? Read the FAQ if you’d like!

    lol, in the arms of James Franco? that does sound fabulous! 😉 I’d love to live in Paris too, shall we share a flat? 😉

  2. 5 March 2009 7:55 pm

    Ooh! Thank you so much for taking part of the ‘tag’, loved reading your answers. LOVE Pride & Prejudice (and Emma, but maybe the Bronte’s sisters books even more…), love Elle as well! I subscribe to the US mag, and mine only arrived a few days ago (with Jessica Alba on the cover), am in love with the jacket she has on 😉


  3. 5 March 2009 8:09 pm

    I’m so glad you posted that Bazaar Editorial on Lindsey–I’m not exactly a fan but she DID look fabulous in it!
    what a great list of answers 🙂

  4. 5 March 2009 8:33 pm

    James Franco is not a bad addition. Lucky you on your great buy!

  5. 5 March 2009 9:19 pm

    LOL…great answers! got a kick out of the james franco bit. and i recently re-read pride & prejudice, too. i highly recommend mr. darcy’s diary when you’re done w/P&P. it’s a fun, easy read.

  6. 5 March 2009 9:24 pm

    James France? Not a chance. Robert Pattinson is more like it!

  7. 5 March 2009 9:45 pm

    Luphia: We must share a flat! =] How amazing would that be?!

    Brigadeiro: Jessica Alba is drop dead gorrrrgeous =] I love her outfit on the cover! And this was so fun to do! =]

    Tanye: I’m not her biggest fan either; but when I saw these I fell in love!

    Nina: You’re back! =]

    Anna: Hahahaha =] Team Edward?

    I always love reading these little questionaires about you; it’s like a bit more of the mysterious LC revealed each time!!

    You always make the answers so fun. Usually people can be so boring, but each was entertaining & witty!

    Just a suggestions: maybe open up a little “forum” for people to ask random questions like those Q&A posts other bloggers do?

  10. 5 March 2009 10:02 pm

    I love Elle and Harper’s Bazaar. I carry them everywhere. In fact, I carry more mags than textbooks to school! Do you read Vogue?
    Thanks for the comment my dear!

  11. 5 March 2009 11:04 pm

    lol, Slumdog Millionaire!

  12. 5 March 2009 11:53 pm

    Wow you get out of bed early in the morning! And yes, James Franco is love…

  13. 5 March 2009 11:59 pm

    You have great taste in music & in movies, love. I must say! Slumdog Millionaire is THE movie! =D

  14. 6 March 2009 12:00 am

    HI CAN I HAVE AN ORDER OF THAT ABSOLUTELY MOUTH-WATERING SALAD PLEASE? I love baby spinach. And I’m terribly hungry at work right now and the description of the salad has completely ignited my tastebuds.

    Also, I love bat-wing tops! Yours sounds so lovely! Alas, I don’t own one, because I can’t seem to find any good quality ones with good stitching and with sleeves that fall nice and gently, like real butterfly wings in the wind! May I find my perfect bat-wing top soon. Preferably sheer in gray or black, with subtle translucent cherry blossoms painted on…*drifts*

    I want my own apartment too. And being in the arms of James Franco, well, surely that can’t be a bad thing. :p

    Love love love,
    SEAH (:

    LOVE those pictures of LiLo!! Julia Restoin-Roitfeld is just so gorgeous! Your answers are so fun!

    And yes! A house in Paris would be perfect! I just have to improve on my language to enjoy it!:D

  16. 6 March 2009 3:15 am

    So cute and great insight into your fabulous life.
    I am tempted to do one too 🙂

    Have a lovely day darling

  17. 6 March 2009 3:31 am

  18. 6 March 2009 8:54 am

    Oooh I’ve never seen these before, Lindsay looks stunning! With you on the super power, I’d loveee to know what everyone is thinking. It’d be so handy. x

  19. 6 March 2009 10:59 am

    Hello La C. Those were great! I loved reading those. It’s always neat to learn what makes others tick and what they are interested in. Really cool blog post. Thanks for your fantastic comments on my blog. I appreciate it. Take care. Have a fantastic weekend. I really love your blog. Cheers! Keith

  20. 6 March 2009 11:32 am

    awwww great post dear!!! i love that song from slumdog millionaire too!

  21. 6 March 2009 1:06 pm

    Love all your answers (especially the last one – me too!) and the pics of La Linds!

    Really nice answers, it made me laugh ;D

  24. 6 March 2009 2:29 pm

    Honey, I couldn’t help noticing that you are thinking in minutes (7:15,12:00), instead of larger time frames (early morning, late evening). This might be contributing to your stress, just a thought.
    Here’s a “novel” idea: try putting a few books on the toilet tank. Some good ones to try are Frederick Fekkai’s Daily Planner, The Bombshell’s Guide to Life, Make-overs at the Beauty Counter of Happiness, and Giving it Up/My Year of Learning to Live With Less. Oh, and I almost forgot This n That by Bette Davis.
    I must be in the mood for giving advice today, I hope you don’t mind. xo

  25. 6 March 2009 2:58 pm

    You should do tags more often! It was nice learning a bit more about you.

  26. 6 March 2009 3:00 pm

    I love the pictures!

  27. 6 March 2009 5:09 pm

    Oh, Lindsey does look stunning in that editorial! I love everything she’s wearing. Also, Slumdog Millionaire is just about my favorite movie I have ever seen. Jai Ho is such a fun song.

    And by the way, you are so great at answering all of these random questions! It really is quite a difficult art to master.. Most people tend to drag on, or write boring answers, but everything in this post and your Q&A was very interesting. Plus fun to read!

    I agree, La Lohan looks gorgeous in this spread. I especially love the second picture – probably because I want those shoes (love!).

  29. 6 March 2009 7:02 pm

    I love finding out more about other bloggers – thank you for sharing! x

  30. 6 March 2009 8:58 pm

    Aww, thank you all =] You girls and guy (just for you Keith!) are truly the sweetest & know how to make my day =]

  33. 6 March 2009 11:06 pm

    La C, don’t lie. You were not joking about waking up in the arms of James Franco. I sure wouldn’t be 😉 And Pride and Prejudice gets better the more you read it!

    • 6 March 2009 11:37 pm

      ondressingup: Darnnit. I wasn’t joking at all ;-). I think I’d die out of pure joy and shock if that ever happened. Dearest James Franco, if you should ever (though HIGHLY doubted) stumble upon this humble little blog of mine, shoot me and email & I would gladly do anything for you. Anything. 😉

      La C.

  34. 6 March 2009 11:28 pm

  44. 7 March 2009 5:56 pm

    Great answers LC! I knew you had to be a very fashionable girl based on your writings on the blog, but after reading about your style and the clothing you like, it would be great to see some of your chic outfits!
    Also, I’m not a fan of LL at all but I must admit, I loved that editorial as well. She looked quite pretty and the clothes and styling were fantastic!

  45. 7 March 2009 6:17 pm

    Lovely post! And the LL photos are brilliant, i even bought this magazine just because of this editorial 🙂
    BJS *keep it stylish*

    Girl, I would love to wake up in James Franco’s arms, let me tell you! I went into the city today and was near Columbia and said to my friends “I hope we can see James Franco!” 🙂

    Jai Ho from Slumdog Millionaire is just brilliant..I haven’t been able to stop listening to it since i saw the movie !

    We have so much in common darling, La C! I’m not surprised at all though 🙂

  48. 7 March 2009 11:49 pm
