Little did I realize that the Louboutins I ran out with were too tall for me at 120mm. I teetered around unable to dance (or walk) the whole evening.
I grew up in a family that always pushed the importance of looking your best. I tried the daily suit and tie look for a bit and realized it just wasn’t me. I didn’t feel like myself and others probably saw that too.
I’m a big fan of pattern socks. They’re easy to pair with work suits or jeans while showing off your personality.
Always wear a belt. You need to transition your body from top to bottom.
Whether it be a pocket square, fun tie, or cool shoes, I like having one thing that stands out and separates my outfit from others.
I feel that a fabulous handbag and a great pair of shoes really finishes a look and shows a sense of style.
I cannot overemphasize the importance of finding and keeping a good tailor in the city. Almost every piece of clothing I own is tailored in some way to fit my petite frame and style.
I use minimal makeup but always have my manicure done. I feel that it helps me look polished at all times.
A watch completes the look. Whether you keep a classic Aviator or nerd out on tech, you need something wrist-worthy before walking out the door.
My philosophy is just because it’s “in style” doesn’t mean it’s for me. For example, ruffles had a moment this past year and I couldn’t get on board.
