Smile Trendy/Extravagant?

Sorry for all the questions...we had a huge snow storm and I am desparate for adult conversation
 


Do you think you are trendy? What is the most extravagant thing you own?

I'm not a trendy person AT ALL...the complete opposite, I'm the most comfortable wearing Jeans and a Fleece pullover, which I wear pretty much everyday - thankfully work is casual. I have dressier outfits, but am most comfortable dressing down. Don't need the manicures and will indulge about 4 times a year for a pedicure, my purse is from Target (although I need a new one - I called it my "Hoochie-your-a-mama purse
 
) I would say the most extravagant thing I own is my Blackberry
 
I recently purchased Kiehl's Moisturizer and I love my perfume from Zephora...but that's about it. I also have a cleaning lady that comes every other week, but DH and I agree we'd go barefoot before giving it up.
 


I see kids at DS's school with UGGS on...OK, that is just crazy $$ spent IMO since there feet grow so quickly...I would love a pair myself but honestly they are so trendy I wouldn't buy them for that reason, not the cost.

I'm even less trendy then you
 
The only name brand thing I've owned in my adult life is my Nike sneakers. I feel odd that they are "name brand", but I got them on a terrific sale and they were the ones that fit right so I got them. I have a name brand purse too, but it was a hand me down from my mom
 
I rarely use it as it makes me self conscious and doesn't really fit into my mommy lifestyle. I just put my things in the diaper bag
 
My view on name brand clothing is they should be paying me to advertise for them and until they do I'm not wearing it
 


My DH got me a spa pedicure when I was 38 weeks pg with Everett. I didn't care for it. I could do a better job on my own toes at 38 weeks pg then they did
 


I do wear "designer originals" if I get to count as my own clothing line
 
I make most of my own clothing so it fits properly
 
I do the same for the kids.

I'm like you - I live in comfy clothes. I sometimes dress up for dinners out, but that's very occasional. I don't wear any makeup at all; in fact, I think it's been at least 6-7 years since I've worn any.

I do have some extravagances, though. I have the every-other-week cleaning lady too, and occasionally get a pedicure or a massage.

Well I don't think Im trendy.I wear jeans and tshirts 99.9% of the time.I have never been a girly girl and wear store makeup about 2x week.I do wear name brands but only buy them on sale or clearance (mostly fox and Roxy). I do have some extravagances my levi's and well my Coach purse that I buy once a year
 

I don't get my nails done I get my hands dirty too often and have NEVER had a pedicure.

I'm stuck in the snow and desperate for adult talk too!

I used to like to be mildly trendy but since the kids and gaining weight I am as boring as you get.

Oh and being on one income takes care of any trendy tendencies as well. LOL!

I prefer some brand name stuff because of quality but I doubt my Lands End clothes would be considered "trendy".

I definitely have champagne taste and beer budget when it comes to houses, home decor and cars but for now it is all dreams. I did drive a Volvo for a while mainly because I always thought they were cool and also safety rating but mostly because I loved the heated leather seats and all the other niceties that come with a foreign car. :-)
