Thanks Plain Jayne for tagging me in this fun post!

How would you define your style?
I would say I dress very feminine and artsy. I wear classic pieces - lots of cardigans, fun dresses and skirts and spice it up with my accessories and how I style it. I use a lot of scarves and belts. And I always wear my gold or silver thin bangles and am not afraid of color. I look for items that aren't "trendy" but still stylish. I don't want to look back a year later and have regrets lol. I like a lot of vintage inspired pieces as well.
What is your favourite item of clothing EVER?
A dress I got on sale from Anthropologie 3 years ago. Its a summer dress perfect for picnics and shopping trips. I wear it with alone or with a cardigan and straw Fedora.
What is said favourite item of clothing most suited to (e.g. sailing the seven seas as a free-booting buccaneer, a street carnival in Rio, afternoon tea at the Ritz)?
Sightseeing in Provence or frolicking in the fields of Tuscany.

Who are your style icons?
Keira Knightly, Kirsten Dunst, Zooey Deschanel, Michelle Williams... and of course Audrey Hepburn! I love their styles equally on and off the red carpet.
Which song should have been written for you?
"Dance Dance Dance" by Lykke Li. "Having troubles telling how I feel but I can dance dance dance." It takes me a while to really open up to people and show them my crazy self, until then I act very civil and calm. But when I perform (dance or act), I have no inhibitions - I can do it full out and don't care what people are thinking or how I am being judged. It is a wonderful release!

What is your favourite fairy-tale?
The Little Mermaid. I only accustomed to the happy Disney version, although I know in the Hans Christan Anderson version she dies in the end :(
What is your favorite word?
Pamplemousse - it means grapefruit in French :)

Dream trolley dash locations?
Japan, the rainforest, a safari
Dream location for your future Vogue photo shoot?
A tie between Versailles and the Inca ruins in Peru
If you could hire one fashion designer as your personal tailor, whom would it be?
Marchesa. I think they make the most gorgeous, timeless gowns. I would be more than happy to wear one every day - even to decorate cakes in - that's what aprons are for! Their pieces are so frothy and feminine.
Signature scent?
Currently: Daisy by Marc Jacobs
Which era would you most like to live in?
18th century Versailles or 1950's those dresses always flattered a woman's body!

Most recent purchase?
This necklace from forever 21 - very LV SS09!

A tough one... if you were a food what would you be?
Sushi - sometimes raw (I wear my emotions on my sleeve), unique, creative and adventurous
And, finally - who is the love of your life (so far)?
I wish I could name a man at the moment... but I would have to say music. It influences me, connects with me, and helps me all at the same time.
BLOGGER'S CHOICE!!!!! If you have been wanting that "perfect" themed playlist to suit your needs, comment and tell me what kind of playlist you would like to see as next week's Weekly Top 10 Songs. If I have the songs and inspiration, you might just get chosen and the playlist would be dedicated to you. If I have already done a playlist like that, I will dedicate a former post to you:)

That was so interesting to read! I had no idea you are an actress :) :) I am as well...I actually have had a few auditions this week!

New Orleans was lovely. It was extremely hott and muggy, the hottest temperatures recorded in 100 years!

Some Jason Mraz and Beirut would be awesome.

Love, love, love your answers! Those pictures of Provence and Tuscany are jaw-droppingly gorgeous. As for me, I think I should love to live in the 20s - the fashions of that era are some of my favorite! :)
