Describe your look: Sophisticated and feminine with a bit of edge

What do you consider a “fashion don’t”? Not dressing appropriately for your body is the biggest fashion faux pas. The smallest amount of tailoring can make the biggest difference in how something fits your frame. 

What is your favorite piece of clothing and why? A leather bomber jacket by Helmut Lang. I can throw it on with jeans and a t-shirt and dress it up with heels for a night out.

What do you consider a must-have accessory? A great cocktail ring. I tend to dress in monochromatic looks black or neutral colors. A fun cocktail ring can play up any outfit.

What is a fashion crime you have committed in the past? Disclaimer: I’m from New Jersey. I went through a blonde highlights and metallic eye shadow stage that lasted longer than I care to admit.

Where are your favorite places to shop? Cusp, Nordstrom, Shopbop, Anthropologie, one-off boutiques

What, besides your wardrobe, completes your look? A fresh manicure

What is in your bag/brief case? iPhone, Dior addict lip maximizer, business cards, gum, to-do list

My closet is full of… Black. Black tops, black dresses, black everything.

Dress by J. Crew, shoes by Kate Spade, bracelet by House of Harlow, earrings by Alexis Bittar
