Describe your look: Attention-grabbing class! It is sophisticated, intelligent and gorgeous.
What do you consider a “fashion don’t”? The “whale tail.” My friend Heather may have made that term up, but now all the young women are wearing thongs…and we end up seeing the top above their jeans!
What is your favorite piece of clothing and why? This is the hardest question because I have so many things I love. The best in winter are sweaters instead of blazers. I have a few of the Skif handmade sweaters that are original and unique.
What do you consider a must-have accessory? Jewelry! I never go out without earrings, a watch and a few bracelets that I never take off and have had forever.
What is a fashion crime you have committed in the past? Ill-fitting clothes, especially pants. Know what looks best as a silhouette on your body type and you can never go wrong.
Where are your favorite places to shop? I have so many depending on what I want. On the higher end, Nordstrom and Saks; for the discount fashionista, H&M, Target and Gap.
What, besides your wardrobe, completes your look? Great perfume! For years, I wore nothing but Chanel, but right now I’m in love with Bond No. 9 from New York. Perfume can be as much of your fashion calling card as your look if you are wearing a scent that is a match to your body chemistry. If you want a scent check-up to know the right scent for your skin, go to the perfume counter at Saks and ask for Judy; she is the scent expert.
