Number of years in real estate:

Describe your look:
My look can be described as too short, because I’m six feet tall. 😉

What do you consider a “fashion don’t”?
Anything Gen Z.

What style has come back into fashion that shouldn’t have?
I would probably say low-rise jeans and shoulder pads.

What item of clothing gets you the most compliments?
A cute dress with a knee-high boot.

What is a fashion crime you have committed in the past?
Wearing my dad’s oversized T-shirts in middle school.

Where are your favorite clothing stores or brands?
My favorite store is probably Nordstrom, because it’s down the street. Otherwise, my online regulars are Vici Collection, and REVOLVE for everyday wear. Alo Yoga and Lululemon for workout clothes. I have also recently loved Maniere De Voir for vegan leather options and jackets.

What fashion accessory do you feel naked without?
A watch is an everyday necessity.

Who is your style icon?
If I had to choose, probably Blake Lively, because she’s a boss.

What decade or time period had the best fashion?
I would have to go with the 1960s — so much fun!

What’s the most expensive or meaningful accessory or piece of clothing you’ve ever acquired? Do you still have it?
Well, living in Chicago, my MACKAGE winter coat has become my absolute favorite piece – for obvious reasons.

What is your style advice for other people in the industry?
Your style is a way to express who you are without having to speak.
