Mostly As: Total fashion addict. You start the day by opening your Coveteur e-blast, scanning Refinery 29 and checking out new pics on a dozen of your favourite street style photo blogs. You hit designer sales the way others buy groceries, and you’re friends rely on you as their go-to for emergency style advice. If you don’t work in the industry, the industry looks to you for inspiration.
Mostly Bs: You’re a trendsetter with great style, but fashion isn’t your life. You know what’s up, but don’t feel the need to share it on your fashioncentric tumblr. You mix big box with vintage, local boutiques with online, but skip the sample sales. You often get noticed for your killer shoes.
Mostly Cs: You like fashion and enjoy window shopping, but it doesn’t dictate your social life. Checking out style blogs is fun, but being featured on them isn’t your goal. Forget the frill; you’re more comfy in cutoffs, v-neck and simple sandals. You may not have shoes overflowing from your closet, but you’ll admit that watching a fun fashion flick (ahem, like After The Ball) is like raiding a candy bar: exciting, sweet and irresistible.
