New Quiz: What Color Sunglasses Should You Wear?

What color sunglasses best suit you?

Happy Monday! How is the summer treating you so far? Oh boy, it’s sure been hot here… I have to keep reminding myself that the summer is almost over. I may not have much more chance to write summer quizzes (my favorite part of summer), so I’m enjoying that while I still can. When I’m in the middle of a Texas hot summer, there’s nothing better than sitting on my couch and writing quizzes in the A/C 😉

I can’t survive summer without a good pair of sunglasses, and I seem to need a new set of shades every year. I always have a bit of a crisis about what sunglasses to buy for the summer, and that’s what inspired my latest quiz. Hopefully this quiz can help me in future summers: What Color Sunglasses Should You Wear?

This quiz is heavily influenced by the intersection of fashion, color, and personality. I hope you find it accurate and illuminating! Let me know what you get, and what color sunglasses you tend to prefer.

New Quiz: The Purse Test

6 basic purse shapes

Which purse would you pick? And what does it say about you?

Are you an admirer of nice purses? I am. I feel like a good bag can really elevate a plain outfit, and of course, I like to have something nice to put all my stuff in. A good purse is so pricey these days that I find myself doing a lot more dreaming than actual shopping. So needless to say, this seemed like the perfect topic to write a quiz about!

What does your taste in purses say about you? Take The Purse Test to find out. This quiz gives you fashion based outcomes, so it’s a great way to learn all about your style!

Take The Purse Test, and let me know what you get. Does it match your personal style? I’m also curious to know what your favorite purse is like. My favorite purse is a big brown faux leather “bowling bag” style that has lasted for years 🙂

Where Should You Go to Fashion Week?

fashion week

Have you been feeling very fashionable lately? I have not, except when the weather is unseasonably mild. It’s hard for me to feel fashionable when I’m rocking a gazillion layers. However, I do feel a little chic when I’m able to pair jeans and boots without looking like I’m ready to crawl into my snow fort.

I wanted to write a fashion week quiz for a long time, and for some reason, right now seemed perfect. Fashion week Paris just ended (let’s be honest – it’s often fashion week somewhere), and I wouldn’t mind being whisked off to fashion week somewhere for some VIP treatment.

Would you like going to fashion week? I feel like it’s at least got to be worth it for the people watching. I decided that once I knew I wanted to go fashion week, I needed to know where! So I wrote a quiz: Where Should You Go to Fashion Week?

Let me know what you get on this quiz and if you like your result. Have you ever been to a fashion show?

What’s Your Fall Style?

Do you feel like fall is in full swing in your neck of the woods? I feel it here for sure, and I love the cooler temperatures. While I’m not quite ready to break out a jacket yet, I love that I can throw on a scarf or sweater some evenings.

What about you? Do you enjoy fall clothes? I love dressing for fall, so I wrote a whole quiz about fall fashion!  Check out my latest quiz: What’s Your Fall Style? Let me know what you get and how true it is for you.

What Color Tights Are You?

blue, pink, yellow, and black tights

Ladies, do you like to wear tights? I don’t get the opportunity to wear them much in Texas, but this time of year I do 🙂 I kind of have a fashion dream of living in the Northeast or Pacific Northwest, where tights would be part of my everyday wardrobe.

I came across some fun tight colors on my favorite photo site, and I just knew I had to write a quiz about tight colors. Here you go: What Color Tights Are You? Let me know what you get… and if you would actually wear that color tights.

Discussion question: What is the most unique pair of tights you’ve worn… or simply seen?

What Accessory Are You?

Do you like to wear accessories? There are some that I really like and some I don’t bother with. I didn’t really consider myself an accessory person until I broadened my view of what an accessory is. It’s all about what kind of accessory works for me.

What kind of accessory works for you? Take my latest quiz to find out: What Accessory Are You? Let me know what you get and how well it fits you 🙂

New Quiz: The Vintage Sneaker Test

Five vintage sneakers

Which of these sneakers would you like to wear the most? Take my latest image quiz to see what your vintage sneaker says about you.

Do you wear sneakers often? I know that some consider them a fashion faux pas, but I think sneakers can be quite fashionable if done right. I’m especially a fan of vintage style sneakers in simple, but bold, colors. I think a minimalist sneaker can look quite cool with jeans or other casual wear. Would fancier shoes often look better? Maybe, but my feet need to be comfortable.

I wear sneakers a good deal of the time. I do a lot of walking in my everyday life, and I can only go a mile or two in non-sneaker shoes, even if they are designed for walking. I own a few pairs of colorful, simple sneakers, and I mix them up depending on my mood or outfit. I hope they pass as stylish, but luckily, I live in an area that is more casual than fashion forward anyway.  I think the most important thing for looking stylish in sneakers is intention. If you pick out cool looking sneakers that complement your outfit, you can fit in anywhere – even Paris! (Do you agree or disagree? Let me know in the comments!)

What sort of sneakers do you like? And what do they say about you? Take The Vintage Sneaker Test to find out.  Comment below to let me know what you get on this quiz… and what you think about wearing sneakers in general.

New Quiz: What’s Your Summer Style?

What's your summer fashion style? Breezy, fun, or casual?

What’s your summer fashion style? Breezy, fun, or casual?

Do you love summer fashions and trends? I am still getting used to them, believe it or not! I grew up in a place cool enough to need a sweater and long pants at night in the summer, so I never really embraced the whole summer clothes thing. Sure, I had a couple pairs of shorts and sundresses, but there were afternoons in the summer when it was too cold to wear them. And come late August, it was already time to tuck my summer clothes away for nine long months.

Now that I live in a warmer area, I have to take summer fashion more seriously. I have no choice! It’s practically “summer” for half the year. And I learned quickly that shorts and a t-shirt isn’t going to cut it for every occasion. I’m slowly learning about summery shoes, skirts, and dresses. And you know what? I like them! I’m happier wearing some fun summer clothes when I know I won’t be cold in them. (Although I do always carry a sweater for places where they crank the A/C.)

My new love of summer fashion inspired my latest quiz, What’s Your Summer Style?. And unlike many fashion quizzes, this one is appropriate for all the guys and ladies reading. I didn’t want to leave anyone out! Let me know what you think of your result.

Discussion topics (Comment below and let me know any or all of these):

  1. What do you get on What’s Your Summer Style? Is it true for you?
  2. What kind of clothes do you like to wear in the summer? Is it your favorite season for fashion? (If not, what is?)
  3. What trends have you noticed this summer, fashion or otherwise? What do you think of these trends?
  4. Take What’s Your Style Type? What do you think of your result?

New Quiz: The Hat Test

collection of six hats

What sort of hat are you, and what does it say about your personality?

Do you wear a hat? I have to admit that I’m more of a hat fan than an actual hat wearer. I love the way that hat look, and I think they are one of the best accessories around. I’m an aspiring hat wearer, but I’m not sure I have the style and confidence to pull of an assortment if hats. I’m afraid of looking silly or wearing the wrong one. Also, I’m not sure if I’m conscientious enough to wear hats. I’m pretty sure I’d leave them places.

My reluctance to wear a hat probably says a bit about my personality (flaky) and fashion style (ultra casual). And I’m sure whatever hat I wore would reflect my personal style. After all, aren’t beret and fedora people different? And what about people who wear cowboy hats? Or vintage hats? I love to think of all the different personalities.

Thinking about hats led me to my latest quiz, The Hat Test. Now I know there are some gentlemen in the group, so obviously you would be be picking the hat that would look best on a lady. And your result will still be gender neutral. (It was hard for me to find unisex hat pictures that I liked, but I am sure I will write a quiz with more male friendly options in the future.) Comment below and let me know what you think of your result… and hats in general 🙂

Discussion topics (Comment below and let me know any or all of these):

  1. What do you get on The Hat Test? Is it true for you?
  2. Do you wear a hat / hats? How often? What kind?
  3. For you, are hats more fashionable or practical?
  4. How would you describe your fashion style?
  5. The one type of hat that I can’t avoid wearing is a winter hat? What about you? What Winter Hat Are You?

New Quiz: What Handbag Are You?

What kind of bag should you carry?

I’m happy to announce that there is a brand new quiz for Blogthings today. Thanks for all those who patiently waited for this one as I worked behind the scenes on other things! I’m hoping to get more new quizzes out every so often, especially if people seem to be enjoying them.

I’m especially excited to launch this quiz because it was my mom’s idea. Yup! Even my mom gives me quiz ideas. She said that I needed a straight up handbag personality quiz, and she was right. I couldn’t believe I hadn’t written one yet. So without further delay… What Handbag Are You?

I have to admit that I’m a bit of a wannabe when it comes to my handbag personality. I really wish that I was a chic boho bag girl. I’d love to have a cute and unique bag that I carry as my daily bag. While I do own a couple bags like this, I don’t use them every day. And here’s why… I like to carry my laptop with me.

Yup, I’m such a computer nerd that I have to put my laptop in my purse. And for me that means I have a very big bag. It’s stylish enough, but in my opinion, there’s only so much pizazz a big purse can have. But I need all my stuff with me 🙂 I guess you could say there’s nothing super low maintenance about how I roll. The upside is that if you need something, there’s a good chance it’s in that huge purse of mine!

Anyway, please take this new quiz, What Handbag Are You?, and let me know what you get. Also, tell me what sort of bag you carry most days and what it says about you! We won’t even get into how revealing the contents of our bags are. Save that for another quiz 😉
