1.Describe your personal style.
easy, classic, and comfortable.
2. Who are your favorite designers?
I wear a ton of Boy. and girl by Band of Outsiders (obviously), Celine and Chloe accessories, A.P.C. and Isabel Marant.
My fantasy grown up wardrobe is Prada + Miu Miu, Balenciaga, Valentino, and Dries.
3.What are your favorite places to shop?
Online honestly. I usually know the pieces I want so it's just a matter of finding them.
4. Who are your style icons?
Emmanuelle Alt. Her consistency, simplicity, and confidence make her so chic. She reminds me that you can be "in fashion" and not in such an obvious way.
5. Are there any key pieces you find yourself wearing constantly?
My Boy. oversized army jacket from fall. There's basically nothing it doesn't go with perfectly.
6. What is your most recent purchase?
I have to admit there have been quite a few lately! but one of my favorites is a vintage Alaia dress. I realized i didn't own 'a little black dress' and wanted to.
7.Do you have any stories about amazing deals you've gotten on awesome pieces?
I'm getting married in june and people are being very generous with dress connections. The finale of the story is yet to come...
8.Can you give us smart shopping advice?
If you aren't completely and utterly obsessed with something, don't buy it. Whenever I spend even a second convincing myself or negotiating the purchase it's most likely a mistake.
9.What's the best thing about your job?
Working so closely with Scott. He's the most creative and intelligent person. I've worked with him for almost five years now and the ideas never stop.
10.Which beauty products do you recommend?
The words "beauty products" scare me, but I like these: Lanolin Eggwhite Soap, Oil of Olay face lotion, C.O. Bigelow Lavender body lotion, and Kerastase Curl Creme.
