What is your foundation for great style?
To make sure your clothes fit your body type. If not, [your style] will look undone and you won't feel comfortable, which will show in how you carry yourself.
What are your three style must-haves?
A form-fitting leather jacket, a great pair of skinny jeans, and nude [color] heels. Can I say a fourth one? I’ve got to have black mascara.
What do you feel best in?
A fit and flare dress with a cute pair of wedges.
Which celebrities or icons influence your style?
That would definitely be J-Lo [Jennifer Lopez]. She always looks put-together, whether she is dressed to the nines or casual. I love her versatility in her clothes.
If you could have one style superpower, what would it be?
To have instant access to unlimited wardrobe changes in the blink of an eye.
What tips do you have for shopping?
Buy items out of season so you don't pay full price. Spend good money on one quality item that won't go out of style. Spend money on good shoes.
