How to check if there are more than one attributes for a value in returned json and populate a select list if so

Hi,
Below is an example of some json that is returned to me via curl. Occasionally there are more than one attribute for 'style' shown below (near the bottom). This is to indicate there is more than one potential vehicle that matches the vin and I need to choose one of them using the style['@attributes'].id and send back to the webservice to narrow it down properly.

I'm trying to figure out:
1) how to check if there are more than one attribute sent for the style when the json is returned?
2) then if so, need to populate a selectlist with the style.id as the value and the styleName for the choice.

If I can populate a selectlist when there is more than one, I can figure out how to send via ajax back to the webservice. Just don't know how to get the result into a select.

I'm thinking some kind of foreach loop? Not sure how to put it together and its very slow to keep trying 'ideas', so hoping someone can take away a bunch of the guessing.

Using a foreach() iterator seems like a good approach.  I'll see if I can come up with a code sample for you.

Test page : http://jsfiddle.net/FY8P8/
$(document).ready(function() {
    if(data.style&&data.style.length) {
        var styles = data.style;
        var options = [];
        for(var i=0;i<styles.length;i++)
        {
            var style = styles[i]["@attributes"];
            options.push("<option value='" + style.id + "'>" + style.name + "</option>");
        }
        $("#styles").append( options.join() );

I'm looking for name and id. It looks as though @leakim971 posted a solution that is working. Was essentially trying to get the id and name to populate a selectlist.
Thanks very much for taking the time to look. Hope you had a great xmas.
