And by matching, I mean things of the identical color or pattern, not just a complimentary color.

I have jewelry that works nicely in matched sets (mostly delicate dressy pieces) and jewelry that would look awful/tacky all matchy-matchy.

When you say matched sets, is the element or pattern identical in every piece? How many matching pieces would you wear at a time?

BTW, I am greatly embarrassed to admit that it actually took me a couple of minutes to figure out that it was you who friended me on FB!

It's usually a necklace and matching earrings which have the same stones and pattern but in a smaller/simpler version, if that makes sense. I also have a couple earrings and matching ring sets. They are all fancier things that I'd wear with cocktail dresses (and my wedding jewelry), nothing for every day.

Best response ever! But no, I feel like I'm more of a nose screw.

Где вариант ответа "да, а шо?" :)

We can assume that most responses in the world can be followed with "да, а шо?"

Нет.
Еще "Таки да". :)

Much overlap, though.

i hate matchy-matchy; I even break up pantsuits.

Date: 2013-05-11 07:11 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] elarbee.livejournal.com
I mostly do too. Especially since it's nearly impossible to find a suit where both parts fit me, nearly at any point of my weight fluctuation!

Good point. Although I did it even back in my slimmer days...

Years ago (when I actually needed business suits), my problem also was that they were slower to evolve to a lower-rising model than pants. I had almost a straight line from my down from my armpits to my hips and had to buy suits that were giant in the ass (I don't have one of those) and tight in the waist.

Yep. I also remember buying men's jeans throughout the early 90s for that same reason (not because I had a particularly boyish figure, just because I always hated the high-waist-cinching stuff).

Now they make boyfriend jeans and the like...

Я вообще практически никогда не меняю то что на мне: обручальное кольцо из титания, серебрянное кольцо ввиде гайки на большом пальце, нержавейка - 6 разновидных в ушах и 1 в языке, ниобий в носу и силикон в туннелях в ушах. Ну, и очки - бирюзовые или серые с полосками. По большим праздникам могу надеть еще одно кольцо или что-то на шею.

I try to - in particular, I like matching necklaces or pendants to go with my earrings. I basically don't ever wear rings, but when I do, it's generally for a dress-up occasion and to match the set.

It's hard to find things I like in sets, though, so I don't do it as much as I wish I did.

It's one thing for your earrings to go with your pendant, it's another to have them as part of the same set. I tried to emphasize that I'm polling about the latter, but I'm not sure if your response covers both.

I buy things in sets wherever possible. When I get things that aren't a part of a set, I spend a fair bit of effort finding something sufficiently similar after the fact.

Do you also like to wear same color gloves, hat and scarf, or shoes and purse?

Date: 2013-05-13 01:19 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] leiacat.livejournal.com
I would, if I carried purses or wore hats.

The few of each that I own are black, which does indeed matches most shoes and gloves I own, which are also black. My scarves are more diverse, and tend to match my coats, rather than the other accessories.

Ah, I used to do that and went in a radically different direction. I frequently wear a gaggle of solids, sometimes several shades of the same color, or with 1-2 patterns thrown in. I might occasionally look like a clown, yes, but I neither exist in a conservative environment, nor feel particularly conservative.

Date: 2013-05-13 10:03 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] leiacat.livejournal.com
Ah. My black is not the conservative kind, it's more the typical nerdish "if it's all black it all matches" approach. I do wear colors (although to be fair generally dark or muted ones), but it's just easier to accessorize with neutrals.

Date: 2013-05-13 10:05 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] elarbee.livejournal.com
I also like black, but I don't wear warm colors, so for neutrals it's either that or gray. But I'm kind of in a phase where I prefer brights!
