I read this tidbit in one of my many vintage fashion/style books, can’t recall which one (sorry, Author). To help determine your personal style, complete this sentence with as many adjectives as you like:
“There goes (you), (you’re) so __________ .”
For example, “There goes Susan, she’s so polished and pulled together.”
|Susan of Fifty Not Frumpy|
“There goes Melanie, she’s so artistic and playful.”
|Melanie of Bag and a Beret|
“There goes Bella, she’s so funky, cool and retro.”
|Bella of The Citizen Rosebud|
And etc. Please don’t let my examples define you, dear readers! I’d love to hear from you, how you’d finish this sentence about yourselves. Here’s how I finished the sentence for moi-meme:
“There goes Patti, she’s so modern and feminine”, or ” . . . she’s so ladylike with a tiger inside.”
How about you? ☺

I think they would say
She's colorful and unique
Thanks so much for including me in the post Patti. My style has been evolving over the past year. I am happy to be a little less buttoned up these days. Have a great weekend!
I love all the answers people have posted! Here's min: "there goes Sheila – she's so colourful, funky and awesome!"
Love this! Love reading all the responses too.
"There goes Anne. She's so insanely creative."
Great post, Patti. I would like to think people would say, "There goes Trina, she's so put together, with such a happy, positive and friendly outlook on life."
I love the ladylike tiger, Patti!
Hmmm… Mine might be "There goes Curtise; she looks a bit bonkers but she's got style. And balls." xxxxx
I love yours!
For me it would be – There goes Melanie, she's so confident. At least that is what I really want to be able to pull off.
There goes Tamera-she's so colorful!!
Lovely post. I'd go with 'all over the place'. I can't seem to settle for a specific style and love to experiment!
That's what I'd say.
this is not a contest, but you win : >
When someone says, "I've always wanted to tell you this, ______" you should close your ears because it's likely something best left unsaid.
This is a great idea!
Thanks Patti! This was a fun exercise.
Brilliant! This is what I overheard two weeks ago – "There goes Vix, hottest woman with a hip replacement ever" xxx
Yes, a tiger inside! So cool. I think I'd say, There goes Val. She's so funny and cute. At least that's what I HOPE people say
Wow…this is a good exercise…I need to put on my thinking cap for this one : )
This is my statement: "There goes Jenny, she's so conservative, drab and plain…"
But THAT is exactly why I'm reading a few well-chosen fashion blogs now 🙂 And recently bought some tops that were just a bit less drab and "safe" …
That'll do, M!
What a cool way to think of it. I think, "There goes Megan, She's so badass" or "She's so fucking awesome." I don't know that I have a personal style objective, except for the desire to feel and be amazing.
What a sweet idea. I would really have to think about it though. Thanks for the prompt, Tiger Lady! x
