Describe your look: Classic chic

What do you consider a “fashion don’t”? Every body type is different, so I think most important is considering your body shape and highlighting your favorite parts. I think that when you feel great, it immediately ups your confidence. And almost anything can look stylish with confidence.

What style has come back into fashion that you think shouldn’t have? Shoulder pads AND pants that are too short/flooded. Growing up, I could never find jeans/pants long enough. Which started my obsession with wearing dresses and skirts. You will rarely see me in pants.

What item of clothing gets you the most compliments?
My black, vegan, pleather Aritzia leggings and my handbags.

What is a fashion crime you have committed in the past? Everything. I’m from the country — it’s not my fault. I have slowly over the years cultured my style. And I used to buy things just to buy them. Now I consider the outfit details I will wear the item with and if it’s functional from day to night. In this industry, you have to transition from 9 a.m. showings to 7 p.m. client dinners. Quality over quantity is my theory in life. I would rather have fewer items that always look great than closets and closets of clothing.

Where are your favorite clothing stores or brands? Aritzia, Revolve, Paige, Majorelle, Lovers and Friends, Free People, Reformation, LPA, AllSaints, Leith, YSL, Zara.

What’s the most expensive or meaningful accessory or piece of clothing you’ve ever acquired? Do you still have it? My mother recently passed last summer, and one of our final moments was going through her jewelry and sharing stories about her pieces. I promised to wear a piece every day. I also wear a locket we designed together.

Dress, Reformation. Belt is B-Low the Belt. Boots, Steve Madden. Bag, Givenchy. Earrings, Revolve and my mother’s.
