  1. Yay! I got them all except for number 7. If I had to pick, baseball would probably be my favorite sport too. Can't wait to watch the Artist this weekend.

    Ally's style is feminine and fun - and just a little bit rebellious!

  2. Darn it! I missed #10. I thought for sure the answer was C... Maybe that was just wishful thinking. I got all the rest though, so that's something!

    Ally's style - Stocking-wearing, color-loving classic style with a pop.

  3. I got everything correct but 1 [I said patterns, because that's my fear, lol].

    Ally's style = fun + colorful, in every aspect of her life! :)

  4. I'm a new bud of yours, so by guessing I got 9 correct. Your style: elegant, colorful, daring, original!

    I think I would enjoy brewing moonshine and being a lizard, thanks for the ideas!

  5. I'd have kicked myself if I had not got them all correct.

    Allys style ... I do believe is a little of everything ... you want to try it all and have no problem tossing a biker jacket and studded boots into the mix should the fancy take you ... but at your core, you're feminine and elegant.

    Have a fabulous weekend Ally - we have a three day weekend .. yippee

  6. What a good blog. And you do have the legs for pantyhose and tights. However, for me, I feel squished in them. I'd love to find a good fit in tights but I don't think they are at the drug store. This year I'm going to try Lane Bryant. And by the way, those red heels are the bomb.

  7. I'm happy to say that I got all of them right. BUT... I think #2 is a trick question. All of the answers are the same ;)

  8. Got them all but the sport question - thought maybe you were trying to trick us, lol!

    Ally's style is fresh, fun and a little daring!

  9. 10/11. Missed #3. I'm smart.

    Ally's style is constantly evolving.

  10. I got them all except number 7. Ally's style is ever changing and bright!

  11. Drat! Stumbled over #5 - thought I had you pegged as a moonshine gal, unwinding all dissipated-like! Adore today's accompanying photos.

    Ally's altogether lovely style echoes her vivid personality, encompassing a broad range of looks with skilful use of colour and fabulous accessories.

  12. Ally, I think you are a sweet person. Male or female doesn't matter - being a sweet, kind human being is the most important thing to me.

    I agree, your style is evolving as I think all style should be for us to be vibrant and interesting.

  13. I was happy to get them all right, but then I feel like I do know you, not only from your own blog, but your comments on others' blogs. I actually read your blog from start to finish, like a book, not long after I discovered it.

    However, if Honey Boo Boo does actually have a blog, I am deeply disturbed. I accidentally saw part of her show when The Teen was in the hospital, and have not recovered from the experience. The few times I saw part of "Tantrums and Tiaras," I had the strong urge to spank someone, and it wasn't the beauty queens...

  14. I only got #6 wrong. I guessed B. I thought for sure Honey Boo Boo was your favorite (kidding!). My one-word definition of your style is "eclectic."

  15. I got 7. I had to google Honey-Boo. Oh my, that is bad.

    But what is good, lovely and so well-thought out, are yor blog posts and comments, Ally. I really appreciate the effort you put into blogging.

  16. Awww, I missed this contest. I probably wouldn't have been able to answer several correctly, but hopefully that'll change soon :)

  17. Oh I am happy to report that I do know Ally very well....!

  18. I got them all right, of course. I thought this was gonna be hard! ;)

    But I have to say - for 11-C...

    You already are.
