If you could pick 3 fashion must-haves that every woman should own, what would they be?
1. Black or nude flats
2. An oversized watch
3. A cashmere sweater
What’s in your pockets right now?
Nothing at all. I hate putting things in my pockets [laughter].
Clothing that doesn’t fit properly whether too big or small.
What’s a great fashion tip that you can share with The Fashion Records readers what would it be? Tailoring is key. If something doesn’t fit properly, but you absolutely love it, invest the extra money and take it to a seamstress…you wont regret it.
What’s the most important lesson that life has taught you?
Thus far I have realized that in life, you cannot please everyone. Everyone with have something to say whether you do your best or worse, so at the end of the day, just remember to do you.
What’s the one place you should NEVER go on a date?
Probably swimming. [Laughter]. My hair is too precious for spontaneous swimming. I need at least a 2-3 day warning.
What would you say is your signature style?
My signature style would probably entail a bit of classic/preppy pieces along with a pop of color. And you’ll always catch me wearing my gold monogram initial necklace and silver clover chain. I wear these two all day everyday.
Is there anyone who you admire or draw your style influences from?
What is your most prized fashion item?
Wow…only one thing?? I would probably say either my David Yurman bracelets or (currently) my Furla Manderin orange ‘Candy’ bag.
Where do you like to shop?
People don’t know that you….
I am probably THE most organized, clean, and well-kept person.
