A garment/accessory/etc that totally expresses your personality
Do you own one? If you don't, what would it be?

I've been thinking about this due to new-shoe love. I just got a new pair of Birkenstocks, and I feel like they really express the kind of person I am: an introverted geek with substantial doses of diva and clown.

Like all Birkenstocks, my sandals are 100% sensible, and where there is a conflict between practicality/comfort/durability/etc and looking cute, they go for practicality. They are also an outrageous, loud, bubblegum pink.

How about the rest of you?

Cute topic!!
My engagement ring!! It's a ruby solitare with two, small side diamonds. "Passion, love=ruby and Rhonda, DH=diamonds." My love, my life, my primary "raison d'etre".

Your engagement ring sounds lovely!

I'm only 30 so it would take a lot for me to get be at SABLE right now - but give me time and I'm sure I'll get there.

For me it would be a very nicely fitted (not tight, not loose) pair of long, low-waist, dark, soft flared jeans with lovely garnet and silver embellishment, worn with a garnet blouse and silver sandals. But, I don't dress that way. It wouldn't fit in here. And, I don't think that I project that either. I wouldn't fit in if I did. Have to fit in to survive sometimes. Blech.

Love this topic...

My outfit, candy apple red high heels with a pointed toe, pale gray slacks with wide legs that flow when you walk and a fitted white blouse. A little sexy, a little comfy, definitely taller with a little fire. I figure that's me. No, I wouldn't wear it everyday but when I do I feel fully myself.

Don't get me wrong- flip-flops and a tank are my choice on most days

I think I stumbled upon my signature piece(s) by accident.

I happened to notice yesterday as I was hanging up a brand-new 2-inch wide solid cherry bangle braclet that I have 6 very wide braclets. These are everything from turquoise pieces to a multi-strand of hot pink beads to a silver cuff to a plastic black one. And, I realized that I wear one of these everyday.

Does that make a really clunky braclet my signature piece?

I have some amazing zuni turquoise jewelry I've collected. The first piece is a ring I inherited from my grandmother. I was then shopping in an antique store in Chicago with my boyfriend on our first real trip together (he's now my DH) and found matching earrings. Then that summer on our second trip in upstate NY I found a matching necklace in another antique store...

That and my patent leather black raincoat I bought last year I'm diverse!

When I'm feeling lazy, gym shorts (cotton with an elastic waist) and a cotton T-shirt. When I'm feeling lazy but have to go out in public, jeans or jean shorts and a polo shirt or a shelf-bra tank top. When I'm not feeling lazy, a floaty, breezy, lightweight sundress (but they're usually fitted in the bust, 'cause I like the girls to have some support).

I also wear a pearl ring that belonged to my grandmother, my nursing school class ring, and my wedding rings, which belonged to my great-grandmother. Then I have a pair of hoop earrings with diamonds that my husband gave me that I wear in my first piercing, a pair of diamond studs that my father gave my that I wear in my second piercing, and a cheap rhinestone in whatever color matches my shirt in my cartilage piercing. But I'm an RN so I only wear jewelry when I'm not working. I have a plain wedding band that I wear with my grandma's rings, and I wear it by itself when I work, and I lock her rings up at home. I'd never forgive myself if I lost them, and I know nurses who have lost diamonds at work.

While I dress relatively conservatively at work, I always have a purse/bag that adds a bit of zip, usually through color...this season it's been a dark yellow one and a coral/pink one. I'm known for having a bag that "makes you smile"

One of my brother-in-laws is a jeweler; he handbuilds all his work & is quite the skilled metalworker - and shares my aesthetic sense. So i just literally never go out the door without a pair of largish, silver earrings; many of them have stones i love, such as chrysoprase, or Holley blue agate, or moonstones. I usually also wear a ring or two, as well. Somewhat more modern & sleek in style, but still silver (in tone), i wear a Skagen watch.

ETA: I also usually carry an old, well-loved dark red Coach bag, as well.
