September's Gotta Love This Girl!!!

My Gotta Love This Girl for September is Michelle from
HOT PINK COMBAT BOOTS. Michelle is a member of the US Air Force Reserves and has moved to Germany to help with the wounded that are flying in from combat zones. Michelle is doing a lot of trips around Europe while she is away and has many amazing tales to tell. Check out her blog it is guaranteed to put a smile on your face.

1/ Coolest thing in your wardrobe? Faux fur cropped leopard coat with a hot pink satin lining.

2/ Where did you grow up? Spokane, Washington

3/ If you could pick a super power what would it be? To be invisible! That way I could spy on everyone.

4/ Why did you start blogging? Good question. I originally started blogging to document my 6 month adventure in Germany. I never realized how much it would improve my writing skills and allow me to find my writer's 'voice'.

5/ What direction would you like to take your blog? When I return to the states I will reopen my Ebay and Etsy stores, so I will slowly start including some of my listings on the blog. Otherwise, it will continue as is since there is always a crazy story to write about - or bad fashion to showcase/question (especially in my hometown).

6/ What trends do you like at the moment? Lace up booties, jewel colored tights and autumn tones

7/ 5 essentials in your wardrobe? 1) Perfect fitting boot cut jeans (7 for All Mankind fits me well) 2) Faux fur wrap (yes, it's an essential) 3) Boots! (brown and black) 4) Scarves 5) Gap T-Shirts

8/ What one thing you eat that makes other go eeww? Tuna and cabbage quesadilla

9/ What song is your karaoke staple? 'The One Thing' by INXS

10/ What was your nickname at school? I don't remember

11/ What's your most irrational fear? That would ever be down to my last $10

12/ If you were down to your last $10 what would you spend it on? Two stiff drinks. One for me and one for the person I was hitting up for a loan/job.

13/ Who is the most famous person you have ever met? Tom Sizemore (I know -lame answer. I need to meet more celebrities)

14/ Describe your perfect day? Slowly wake up to find fresh flowers on the bedstand. Enjoy a cup of black coffee then go for a jog in the brisk morning air. Go shopping for clothes, have lunch with some girlfriends and then head home to get dressed up for a romantic dinner and champagne with Mr. C. Wait - there's more! Open an elaborately wrapped present and spend the night in a glamorous hotel room in the city. Complete Bliss! Wa

15/ If your life was a tv series what show would it be? Sex in the City/RuPaul's Drag Show

16/ What always makes you giggle inappropriately? When people fall down or make random animal noises (two separate things- not animal noises while their falling down. I don 't think I could get that lucky)

17/ Who would play you in a film of your life? Goldie Hawn - Private Benjamin

18/ What's the most played song on your ipod? Mongrel Heart by Broken Bells

19/ If you could choose a profession what would it be and why? Fashion Broker/Importer. That way I could travel and spend my time focusing on clothing, accessories, textiles and trends.
