Fun quiz. I scored "devoted but not demented fashionista."

Cute quiz! Apparently my obsession is "almost life-threatening". Whatever!

Whew! I JUST made it into the "picky about the basics" category. Which really is right on the money, but just the first few questions made me think I was going to be declared utterly hopeless.

"Fashionista, your obsession is almost life-threatening"
I scored 30.

Like I'm surprised? I subscribe to (and read) 9 fashion monthies, WWD, and the Wall Street Journal, I own the entire "Absolutely Fabulous" series and most of "Sex and the City" on DVD, "Auntie Mame" is my favorite movie - for the costumes, and DH is squeezed into 3 square feet of a walk in closet.

I'm not claiming bragging rights, I'm just listing the symptoms.

I'm in the basics category. I probably would be lower (into the makeover heading) without all the fashionistas here at PR.

Where did all this fabric come from? I CAN'T have bought THAT much!

I got a 16, JUST snuck into the "picky about the basics." Now that applies to me and MY style, although I am pretty up on fashion via my daughter's (I'm sure) "life threatening" affliction, hehe At the very least, she's demented, or rather she sure makes ME crazy with her fashion and shopping obsession!

In the basics group. Definitely true. I'm not a fashionista anymore.

My score was 18, the Basics and that is where I belong. I didn't even relate to some of the questions, especially the first few. Had me worried for a minute.....thinking surely I can't be this dorky.
