A quiz & some delicious MK Olsen bling. 
Many of the pieces are from Hoorsenbuhs jewelry. 



Rules


1. Respond and rework: answer the questions on your blog, replace one question that you dislike with a question of your own invention, add one more question of your own.
2. Tag eight other un-tagged people.
The people I’ve tagged are: Ashleigh, Charmaine, Cavaan, Abbey, Frances, Sabina, Andy and Kate.

What is your current obsession? Destroyed skinnies, in any wash. 
What is your weirdest obsession? Dark, eclectic circus acts, à la Cirque du Soleil. I love how cabalistic and mysterious every show is. And the costumes are wonderful, they really add to the overall mood of the performance.
What are you wearing today? Black AA hoodie, thin Wilfred ribbed tank, grey skinnies, and black ballet flats. Nothing special.
Why is today special? I had a personal revelation, and I connected with a soul mate in the wee hours of the morning.
What would you like to learn to do? Fencing, acrobatics, and contemporary dance.
What’s for dinner today? Something with zucchini I hope! I love zucchini.
What’s the last thing you bought? A whooper from Burger King. But if we're talking clothes, then it was two pairs of destroyed skinny jeans from Zara. Told you I was obsessed.
What are you listening to right now? I'm listening to Emperor's Concerto by Beethoven, conducted and played by Friedrich Gulda, on youtube. You must see it!
What is your favorite weather? I don't have favourites. I know that's odd, but I can't designate that importance to just one thing/feeling/event/shade/object etc. 
What is your most challenging goal right now? Getting A's on all 5 upcoming exams this month. 
What do you think about the person who tagged you? She has great taste, and she's very kind and gentle. I know the latter sounds like something pretty deep to say about someone I've never met, but I can sense it.
If you could have a house totally paid for, fully furnished anywhere in the world, where would you like it to be? Paris, rue de Sèvres near Le Bon Marché.
Favorite vacation spot? Barcelona.
What would you like to have in your hands right now? I didn't realize how superficial and materialistic I was until I came up with 5 answers to this question, all revolving around expensive clothes. Since I feel that wouldn't embody me as a person, I would love to have a large trust fund instead- one big enough to fund HIV/AIDS vaccination research to help the epidemic in Africa (South Africa especially, where > 15% of the population has acquired HIV). 
What would you like to get rid of? All my fried hair, which is actually half of my length, but I would like to so without cutting it. I adore long hair. So you see, this is a bit of a feat.
If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go? Amsterdam, to visit my friend Ruby. I met her in France last summer, and I miss her a lot.
Which language do you want to learn? Italian.
What did you dream of last night? What a coincidence, I actually did have a dream last night. Now this usually doesn't happen, because I forget most of them by the time I rise to greet the day, but this one had me in panic mode. I dreamt I was a victim of Visa Fraud! And I had a $7,400 bill to pay. I think this is due to the identity theft incident that happened to my best friend last week.
Who do you want to meet in person? At this very second, Wentworth Miller. He's so intelligent and sage-like. Easy on the eyes too. 
One thing that you would snitch out of someone’s closet, with no regrets? YSL wedges that Ashley Olsen wore a few weeks ago. I love wedges, they're easy on my ballet-destroyed knees.
What’s your favorite piece of clothing in your closet? Like I said, I don't have favourites. However, I really do adore my italian vintage ruffle skirt, and my tiny black muted-sequin vest (what a mouthful of adjectives there).
What is your dream job? Dermatologist in NYC and London. 
Personal aspirations at the moment: Grow my hair longer, à la Willa Holland.

Cheers, 
Chantelle

  4. I love reading these Q&A type things; I just answered a similar one a post or two ago on my blog! And I LOVE long hair too! A few inches of my hair are basically fried, but I don't want to cut it!

    But I will. Haha

    Happy Easter, darling!

  16. gosh, i totally agree with you about Barcelona! My friend is there right now with his family because his brother is studying abroad in Madrid. I really want to go again. La Sagrada Familia was probably the best piece of Spanish architecture that i've seen. But I like the older parts of the building rather than the newer, more modern adaptations. But Spain is such a cool european country. It's different from the others. I totally want to go visit Tuscany someday (this is because you mentioned learning Italian). Maybe i'll go buy a villa and stay there like Diane Lane did in Under the Tuscan Sun ;)

  27. Thanks so much for your uber quick response Chantelle! <3 you're the best darling!

    I'm not going to buy them =] I think it was just an of-the-moment thing that lasted for a few hours, haha! Docs really aren't my style, at all, but it's kind of fun to experiment. But I did find something that was more me. If only they carried my size...

    Bisous,

  32. First, sorry for my english!
    What a coincidence, I'd bought destroyed skinny jeans from Zara too. Actually, it was a boyfriend/destroyed jeans. Chantelle, I really appreciate what would you like to get ride of!!! I believe there will be a safe and effective HIV vaccine!!! Look at this science news:

  33. destroyed skinnies - such a worthy obsession. that bling is insane. too bad very few people can pull it off without just looking gaudy as hell.

    ReplyDelete

    Great answers, love!
