    How funny, I got mostly B’s, that’s my favorite outfit out of the bunch AND I wore jewel tones today. Ha, this just made my day.

    Haha. I answered the questions based on my normal at-school mornings and got “mostly E’s” because I always take the time to get ready and do my makeup while listening to upbeat music, even though my mood is usually super stressed out and tired. Based on my mood alone, I think my result would have been “mostly C’s,” but in fact I wear outfits like the “mostly B’s” one most often, and I don’t think I answered a single B. Fun quiz, guess I’m just an anomaly.

    Well, I adore the outfits, and I love my skinnies just as much as the next girl, however I would appreciate a little more variation in leg wear. 4/5 seems a bit redundant… What about winter shorts? Skirts? Cuts of jeans that aren’t skinny (bootcut, flare, wide-legged)?

    Just for fun, I did this about how I usually am, and I got mostly A’s and B’s. An “A” outfit is something I would wear to school every day, and a “B” outfit is something I would wear to intern or at a nice dinner. I also got a random E or two, which is what I tend to wear if I go out with my friends, to a concert, or a fun date. Very accurate quiz, and very fun! More please [:

    i did this for how i’m feeling now, which is bummed and super stressed since i’m leaving for school in two days, and it was perfect! but beyond that…i really really love this. i can’t tell you how many times i’ve looked up and down this website desperate for a shown outfit that i own all the pieces to! i NEVER know what to wear. and even though all of these outfits themselves weren’t perfect for me, personally, this quiz is the best thing i’ve ever found on this website. and i visit like everyday, so…you know i love it! thanks :)

    Oh good, I’m glad you guys like it! Thank you all for your responses! They are really much appreciated :]

    As for the leg wear, I understand where you guys are coming from. When I made these I tried a few different options, but these final outfits just ended up working best. But I will definitely take your suggestions into consideration for next time. Thanks!
