1. The more versatile the designer, the better I would feel.
2. (jumper as in sweater?) no different, for religious reasons I wear long pants & long sleeves everyday always.
3. SUFFOCATED.
4. indifferent.
5. clever
6. if altering hair means, it’s up or down, then yes, it would change every couple of hours.
7. every 6-8 months or so…never anything drastic.

1. can i name the designer? bottega, and i'm there. oooh. give me a minute. i'm really happy with this thought.

2. long and long? close to my everyday apparel anyway. i live in san francisco.

3. no choice? i don't understand the question.

4. i'm lost.

5. ok, i'm back. ease of dress vs. impact on world. fashion isn't about ease. it's about effort. and learning about your body. and theatre. and self-presentation and control.

6. um. at a distinct disadvantage on this one.

7. when i shaved my head.

1. if you had to wear head-to-toe designer every day you would feel like an walking ad.
2. if you had to wear a long pants, long sleeve jumper every day you would feel the need to do labor work.
3. if you had zero choice in what you wore, you would feel very rebellious.
4. if you could wear whatever you wanted to, but people always saw the jumper, you would feel defeated.
5. if you wore the jumper, but could control what people thought they saw you wearing, you would feel powerful (editor you are crazy).
6. if you had to wear the same outfit for 1 month, but could alter your hair/makeup, would you? how often? Yes. hair, daily. makeup, once a week?

1. Head-to-toe designer would be OK, as long as it was Marc, Dries, or Proenza.
2. Suicidal.
3. like I was being punished (where else don't you get a choice about clothes except prison or the hospital?)
4. like never leaving the house
5. Comfortable and terribly clever; I like this idea
6. No. Being experimental with hair and makeup is great is you're a teenage model, but I know what suits me and won't be wearing turquoise eyeshadow or dying my hair platinum.
7. When I cut off my long hippie hair a few years ago.

1. Panicked. And broke.

2. Claustrophobic. Or warm. My office is freezing.

3. A tad murderous.

4. Exasperated - what kind of meds are these people on?

5. Still claustrophobic. I dress mostly for me.

6. Every day would be different hair/makeup. And I'd buy some good wigs.

7. Thursday.

Extra credit and brown-nosing: I LOVE your blog. It's like really fun homework.

editor said...

2. resigned

3. extremely uncomfortable. extremely.

4. resigned

5. hmmmm...it wouldn't be my first choice but... fairly content i think.

6. ita with travelgretta!

7. have a hair appt. tomorrow. makeup - i frequently invest and attempt, but to no avail.

1. if you had to wear head-to-toe designer every day you would feel smothered.
2. if you had to wear a long pants, long sleeve jumper every day you would feel like i would have to be doing field work everyday, even if I wasn't going to
3. if you had zero choice in what you wore, you would feel sitfled.
4. if you could wear whatever you wanted to, but people always saw the jumper, you would feel invisible.
5. if you wore the jumper, but could control what people thought they saw you wearing, you would feel slightly less invisible but not that much better than invisible as people's thoughts would not be genuine.
6. if you had to wear the same outfit for 1 month, but could alter your hair/makeup, would you? hair - would vary between up and down makeup - I don't wear make up how often? hair - several times a day
7. when was the last time you altered your hair/makeup? hair - 3 weeks ago. I went from blonde to dark brown
