Number of years in real estate:
Describe your look:
What do you consider a “fashion don’t”?
My biggest “fashion don’t” would be wearing uncomfortable shoes or clothing just to be on trend. I feel like you look your best when you feel your best.
What style has come back into fashion that shouldn’t have?
I am not a fan of the high-waist mom jeans. That look went out for a reason.
What item of clothing gets you the most compliments?
I think that my “work clothes,” i.e., business meeting/career dresses get the most compliments. On an average day, I float between business casual and what I like to call mommy mode.
What is a fashion crime you have committed in the past?
I don’t know if it is a crime, but I am guilty of buying the same item several times if I really like it. This way, it always looks new and I don’t have to worry about trying to find it a year or so later if it’s starting to look worn.
Where are your favorite clothing stores or brands?
I’m a fan of Nordstrom, Saks and Macy’s for separates. I love Gucci and Louis Vuitton for accessories and handbags.
What fashion accessory do you feel naked without?
I feel naked without earrings and some sort of handbag. I always have a purse, even if it’s just a small wallet crossbody.
Who is your style icon?
Michelle Obama (non-fictional) and Charlotte York-Goldenblatt (fictional lol).
What’s the most expensive or meaningful accessory or piece of clothing you’ve ever acquired? Do you still have it?
The most meaningful and expensive piece of clothing that I have would be my wedding dress. I’ve been married for 15 years and I absolutely still have it. It was actually included in a wedding gowns exhibit at the Chicago History Museum several years ago. The second runner-up in terms of cost would be my newest YSL handbag.
What item in your closet do you wear the most?
The piece of clothing that I wear the most right now is my Burberry down coat. It’s a great coat that can be dressed up or down. The accessory that I wear the most is a diamond key pendant that my husband gifted me this year for our 15-year wedding anniversary. The key is so fitting because it symbolizes both the role that we play in each other’s lives and my success in my business.
