Where you blog: I blog at www.shermette.com! My blog is about vintage and vintage-inspired outfits, findings and travels.
How did you get into blogging? I started blogging as sort of a creative outlet. There isn't a vintage scene at all where I live, so I just decided to share some of my endeavours online!
Where you work or what you studied in school: Since I was a young teenager, I have worked for my family's school bus company. Aside from that, I am an eyelash extension stylist! My dad and I are also known to shoot a wedding here and there as well, as I'm also a photographer.
What's your dream job? I have never really pondered this question much before, but I think my dream job would be a fashion stylist (preferably vintage). I thought I'd like to run a vintage shop, but heck, I like buying and finding vintage, not selling it! I'm also always trying to dress people, so maybe it's my calling!
Your favorite musical: It was a toss-up, but South Pacific. I watched this so many times that when I was 11, I broke the VHS tapes. Balllliiii Haiiii...
Drink of choice: Not to be unhealthy, but Coke in the glass bottle. It tastes totally different than the can.
Favorite food in the world? POTATO SALAD. I'm pretty sure this song is about me.
Favorite book (from childhood or now): No book has ever inspired me more than the first Harry Potter book.
What's your favorite season and why? Fall has always been my favourite, as the climate where I live (Ontario, Canada) is the most ideal in the fall, and there's just something magical about the colourful leaves.
Do you have a celebrity crush? Clint Eastwood. More specifically, "young" Clint Eastwood.
Which actress would play you in the movie version of your life? So this ended up being a community question, as I had no idea! But my friend suggested Elizabeth Banks, and I really think that suggestion hit the nail square on the head!
If you could live during any other time period, what would it be? Clearly, I'm a huge fan of the 40s, 50s and 60s, but sometimes I really just wonder what a real home-cooked meal in the 1800s/early 1900s would have tasted like. I know that's random, but everything today is so genetically-altered, and our generation may never know how food was intended to taste. Mind you, I am accustomed to some modern conveniences, so I guess I would like to be my age now, maybe living on a farm in the late 1940s.
Your favorite place to shop or favorite clothing brand: Hmm, I really enjoy any flea market, vintage clothing store, or antique mall. The thrill of the hunt gets me every time! As brands go, my favorites are likely Pinup Girl Clothing and Trashy Diva.
What's the most beloved article of clothing you own? I searched through my things trying to decide, but I think my favourite piece is a little boys' 50s rayon Hawaiian shirt I found at an antique mall. It works perfectly for me as a crop tie top, and the colours are so vibrant! I'm crazy about anything tropical!

Go-to accessory: I've been a purse girl for a long time. (Yes, Sammi, I've been eyeing all of yours!)
If you could only wear one outfit every day for the rest of your life, what would it be? Well, let's pretend the weather is nice all the time here, and I'll say probably just one of my vintage cotton day dresses. One with pockets. I'm trying to approach this question with some logic, as I'd normally want to say my puffy pink 50s prom dress!
