Describe your look:

Colorful, authentic, and always, cute shoes!

What do you consider a “fashion don’t”?

Following a trend blindly — not all trends are right for all of us!

What style has come back into fashion that you think shouldn’t have?

High-waisted jeans — why would anyone not want to be able to breathe comfortably?

What item of clothing gets you the most compliments?

My shoes!

What is a fashion crime you have committed in the past?

Buying fast fashion — those fashions go out of style and into a landfill. I’m committed to now purchasing as much sustainable fashion as possible.

Where are your favorite clothing stores or brands?

Symbology Clothing — fair-trade, colorful clothes; Noonday — fair-trade jewelry from around the world; Veerah — quality designer shoes.

What fashion accessory do you feel naked without?

My Fitbit!

What decade or time period had the best fashion?

The 60s — colorful dresses and psychedelic prints.

What’s the most expensive or meaningful accessory or piece of clothing you’ve ever acquired?
Do you still have it?

My great-grandmother’s silver anklets — they must weigh over half a pound each — and to know that they’ve been in the family for generations — that’s special. I treasure them.

Dia de los Muertos earrings – handmade by local Oak Park mom, Necklace/earrings – garage sale, Top – Ann Taylor LOFT, Skirt – Hina’s Atelier (a wonderful Indian designer who’s also a friend of mine), Shoes – Michael Antonio
