Things are not going as planned in blog-land. To keep a constant update of fresh surveys to unroll for our delight all I require is follow-through. It's simple, I ask a question and the questionee responds, but oh no, now they want to think about their answers and get back to me. You can see where this is going. Follow-up, follow-up, follow-up. . .
I think in the future I'll just sit in front of this screen, ask myself questions and give myself a variety of names I wish my parents had given me in the first place and make up a bunch of brilliant answers.
Of course I can't do that because I'm a journalist not only would I never lie to you, but when I ask questions I learn something. It's fun. How sad life would be if we stopped learning, even if it's only trivia.
Tucked away in my bag of tricks -- theoretically saved to be coupled with two other interviews -- is Caroline's response to her favorite, no-fail, love 'em every day summer clothes. (This is not the same Caroline from the last survey, she was a doctor, this Caroline is a pharmacist and cute as a bug, well actually they both are -- one blonde, one brunette, both tiny.) Oh yes, this is the Caroline who revealed in my "what do you you eat for breakfast" survey a couple of months back: "Prince cookies and a glass of milk."
1.) My Chanel sunglasses (yes, yet another one)
2.) Sandals "I won't even tell you how many I own, but I'll tell you the minute it's warm enough I wear nothing else anywhere, ever.
3.) Long flowy dresses.
4.) White or gray t-shirts with black or white linen trousers or bermudas.
5.) A beige Eres maillot. (It's not precisely the one pictured, but the color is right. . .)
On the day of our interview she was wearing coral sandals; a charcoal gray cotton skirt with pale tray pinstripes in a sort of bubble shape with low pockets (you could have your arms at your sides and your hands would slip into the pockets -- weird, I know, but cute); a medium gray Marcel (I swear); a gray cotton cardigan and silver creoles (I know, I know, but it's true).
P.S.: Before it's too late, if you can find a long summer dress you love: buy it, buy it, buy it. It's probably on sale and no woman should be without one or two. Trust me.
