    13 of 20. I suck. However, it said I was a Tasteful Trend Watcher (which I assume is sort of good) and everything it said about me was wrong. M

    16/20 i am most embarrassed about the gherkin. i love gherkins. and i KNEW IT. here is my report. rather pleased with it, really: You got 16 out of 20 correct. You’re a Style Icon, in the vein of Edie Sedgwick, Jackie Kennedy and Prince — not just well-appointed, but inventive, insidery and ahead of the curve. You own fresh-off-the-runway items from Vivienne Westwood and Salvatore Ferragamo, and accent your sparsely furnished industrial loft with pieces from Noguchi and Saarinen. You’re probably an architect. Your phone has a cord, and your eyeglasses are custom made. If you were born American, you live abroad. If you were born abroad, you live in New York. People secretly try to memorize your apartment and your outfits. mmmhm. I DO have vintage Ferragamo boots, my friends.
