Lil: Getting a copy of Oh Francis

What are you wearing right now?

Cat: Red boots and a black top i got in Berlin, red skirt from Paris and a nautical belt i found at home.
Lil: Striped dress with a white shirt tucked under a belt to make it look like I'm really wearing a a striped skirt and white shirt. Hard to explain but Catherine said she liked it so thats a good sign

Say something about the person who tagged you:

Lil: Olkhon Island, Siberia

Favorite pair of shoes you keep going back to over and over, even though your closet is overflowing with a zillion others?

Cat: Blue flats that i got for €3 in Penney's. I wore them all over Paris and have glued the soles back on more than once.
Lil: My first pair of wingtips, I'd been looking for them for years.

Name one thing you cannot live without.

I still really want to be Alex Mack. That girl could wear a hat, like, so well. Almost as well as the Portmanteau girls wear accessories.
