Describe your look: Casual modern with a splash of color

What do you consider a “fashion don’t”? I’m definitely not a fan of white pants! It doesn’t matter if it’s before or after Labor Day – they’re a no-go in my closet.

What is your favorite piece of clothing and why? A little black dress – you can pair it with different jewelry or shoes and it looks like a brand-new outfit!

What do you consider a must-have accessory? Earrings – I can’t leave the house without them.

What is a fashion crime you have committed in the past? I wore an ivory-topped dress to a wedding once and felt awful.

Where are your favorite places to shop? Nordstrom and T.J. Maxx. I love to bargain shop! I can spend hours doing it. I don’t like to wear pieces others have so I don’t mind wearing last season’s items if needed in order to be unique. I also love to splurge on staple items – I just took a trip to Miami and treated myself at YSL, Chanel, Versace – it was definitely therapeutic.

What, besides your wardrobe, completes your look? Lipstick – a lady should never leave the house without it!

What is in your bag/briefcase? My iPad and pen — I need to be ready to take notes anywhere — plenty of lipstick, mascara, allergy pills, keys, business cards and hand sanitizer. Interacting with so many people and places every day as a real estate professional, you need to keep your hands clean so you don’t get sick.

My closet is full of… SHOES! I stopped counting at 100 pairs.

Cashmere sweater: Ted Baker; skirt: Burberry; heels: Christian Louboutin; earrings: I.N.C; watch: Rolex; bracelets: Pandora
