Can you tell us a little bit about your style?
My overall style is classic with a little bit of quirk. But I adore 60s style and have a great collection of vintage dresses and skirts.
What are you favorite trends for fall? I have a really strong love for color, but this season I'm enjoying neutrals like cream and black, with a little punch of color or metallic. Also I'm pattern crazy, so I hope the pattern mixing trend never dies.
What item of clothing do you covet at the moment? Pretty much anything and everything from Rachel Comey or Lina Rennell (best prints/patterns ever).
Give us a childhood memory of you and clothing.
I've always been particular about what I'm wearing. There were so many days from elementary school when I'd be late to catch the bus because I was trying on different outfits and deciding what to wear. Come to think of it, not much has changed...
Name five things every woman should have in their closet.
1 - A vintage dress that fits perfectly
2 - Dark denim pants
3 - A classic striped top, of course
4 - A well-tailored blazer
5 - Red shoes
