Meet the Bloggers: Weird Question Week
In the spirit of getting to know your bloggers better, we will be answering a string of sometimes serious, sometimes silly questions in the coming weeks. Please feel free to ask us something in the comments. We want to tell you what you’d like to know!
This week’s question: What piece of clothing could you not live without?
Quinn: The one piece of clothing that I can’t live without is my fedora. I have a black fedora that I wear every day. I’ve always been a hat person, and after losing my last hat (RIP, 6-year floppy hat) I felt almost naked without something on my head. Enter the ten buck fedora from H&M! At first, I put a feather in the brim that I found by the side of the road (check for bugs if you do this, ladies and gents. Sometimes Quinn’s not the sharpest knife in the drawer) but that fell out after a couple weeks. Now, after a couple trips to kids’ clothing stores, I have a yellow-and-black bow in the brim.
Erin:I guess if I had to choose one piece of clothing (outside of the obvious…), I would have to choose my hoodies. I have a ridiculous number of hoodies and I wear them way too much once it starts to get cold. My favorite of these hoodies, though, is an incredibly oversized, well-loved, stretched-out, bright orange one from my college. It’s possibly the most comfortable piece of clothing that I own and I love it.
Kara: Urg! I can only pick one? The one piece of clothing I can’t live without is my wardrobe, people. However, if i have to pick one piece (sigh), I guess I’d say my pin-striped coat. It’s great because it’s nice and warm, but not too heavy to wear most of the year. You can also wear it over anything, with the look ranging from roguish or piratical to Victoian to nerdy-hip. The coat also has an abundance of shiny buttons (which I must confess to having a terrible weakness for) and a tiny little pocket designed for a pocket-watch. Last, but not least, of my favorite things about this coat is that it was handmade in Michigan by a bunch of wonderful ladies who actually make a living making fine historical clothing. Eclectic fashion at it’s finest, made in America by happy people. It’s like putting on a hug.
Anna: Of all the things that I own, I have to say that I could never live without my boots, especially in my college town. We are about 30-40 minutes away from Erie, PA, and so we get ALL the Lake Effect rain and snow. This means constant rain in fall and spring, and it usually snows from the beginning of October to around March (although we have gotten snow in April before!) This means that the majority of the school year is spent in some form of boots or the other.
Emily: My big brown boots. These boots are made for walkin’ and man have they walked all over the world. From wacky winters in Ithaca NY to hail storms in Scotland, my two booty friends here are the snuggliest soles to keep a girl swathed in warmth. Pair them with some wool socks and a cup of hot coco and true comfort is created. They can turn me into a warrior princess with some serious obstacles to beat or a sophisticated bookworm with a stylish flare. While they aren’t exactly tall boots built for mucking stalls and jumping fences, they are sturdy enough to take me anywhere – and easy to take off.
So, there you have it. Is there a piece of clothing you can’t live without? Tell us about it in the comments. Also, we need a question for next week’s blog, so now’s the time to get your quaint and curious questions answered! Leave them in the comments, and we’ll get the team on it.
