Driving in style (cars can be cute!)

Now that my day job has to do with vehicles instead of clothing, I'm starting to appreciate the way that cars look -- instead of simply thinking of them as a way to get around! What we drive is another piece of our unique, personal style. Here are three of my favorite cars... I can't help but smile when I see them on the road!

I love driving the FIAT 500 around at work. It's such a little baby!

I wanted a Volkswagen Beetle before I could even drive, and I still do.

Ah, the Prius... Fuel efficient and pretty? Yes, please!

So, what do you think... Does your form of transportation reflect your personal style? What's your favorite vehicle right now? Ha, I never thought I'd be writing about cars on here, but things change!


  1. Totally. Dodge Caliber. She's awesome. Best car ever.

  2. totally. my first car was a 1983 diesel mercedes station wagon in navy blue. back then i thought it was awful but now it totally fits my style. that and i saw that kate spade had the same car in the same color. i long for it.

  3. I think my car does reflect my style. Right now I drive a volkswagen jetta.

  4. Grey mini van. The doors are fabulous. When I purchased it I promised myself I wouldn't buy another car until I'd had this one for 10 years. I have three more to wait and the I want something small, sexy, and fuel efficient. Possibly a mini cooper, but well see what the future holds.
    As for Prius, they're so trendy in this area it's almost a joke. Not sure I could do it. The fiat is adorable though.

  5. I hate the design of the new beetles. My 11 year old step-sister is crazy about beetles.
    I would prefer not to drive a car: I have horrible road rage and they are expensive to own (insurance, gas, upkeep, etc).
    My car doesn't reflect my personal style but I won't complain, I'm not the one paying the note. If I had to own a car, I'd love to own a Tesla sports car. It's electric and sexy. In the more affordable rang, I'd take a Hyaundai Elantra hybrid.

  6. I drive a 2006 Mercedes C230, before that I drove a Nissan Xterra. Both definitely fit me while I was driving them.

    I for sure want to stick with German cars (probably Mercedes, possibly Audi or BMW). I love how they drive and how timeless chic they look.

    ALTHOUGH, in all reality, I rarely drive. Lukus does most of the driving and we share a car these days (save money, etc.). Ideally we would not have to get a second car, unless we lived somewhere less walkable.

  7. You lost me when you described the Prius as "pretty." Maybe if I squint really hard... no. Never mind.

    Anyway, I take the bus or walk. Not because I'm "saving the Earth" or anything like that, but because I don't have any other option; I've yet to own my very first car ever. Whether a Gillig Low Floor reflects my personal style or not, I can't say for sure.

    My favourite car at the moment? Acura NSX; may the new one do the original justice.

  8. Yeah, I identify with the cars I drive! Lol. It's one powerful mean beast of a German car after an other. That's probably where I fail being green but my commute is short and I carpool with the hubby. That counts for something.

    My hubby and I have had 8 cars so far but my favorite car ever: Audi RS4. Had one 3 years ago, and I've decided that it's going to be my next one: White with titanium package, red leather seats, 420 hp, sport package, cold weather package... siiiick!

    Ok, I probably spend way more than the average person thinking about cars. I'll stop now.

  15. Hi this is kinda of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I
    wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  16. Great website you have here but I was wondering if you knew of any user discussion forums that cover the
    same topics discussed here? I'd really like to be a part of online community where I can get comments from other knowledgeable people that share the same interest.
