The One Hundred: The A's

I recently bought Nina Garcia's The One Hundred: A Guide to the Pieces Every Stylish Woman Must Own on my nook, and I admit I am pleasantly surprised! I watched the first few seasons of Project Runway and always thought she was a beast, but she doesn't come across as that in the book.  Granted, she knows what she's talking about, and some of the contestants deserved it...

Anyways, I've decided to post the list for you as well as respond how I measure up to the list.  The list is arranged alphabetically with illustrations by Ruben Toledo as well as general facts about the items or of historical importance.  I've only gotten to page 17 which is the first five items.  I promise to keep up with this!

4.) Aviators

So far I'm 5 for 5! How about you?

*Is this something I should keep up?*

I'm thinking I'll start a list and continue it at the end of each 100 post. At the end we score ourselves like a test?
