A: Wear clothes that you really love.
Q: What is the worst style advice you’ve ever received?
A: I've had sales associates give me terrible advice in order to sell me something…anything. I believe they are the exception, but understanding my personal style, as well as what suits my body and lifestyle protects me from salespeople with dollar signs in their eyes.
Q: What are your favorite items in your wardrobe?
A: Great pair of jeans, most any blazer, and a collection of cool jewerly, including pieces from Marla Aaron and vintage pieces from Metier SF.
Q: Is there an outfit that you regret having worn?
A: The outfit I wore for my 6th grade school pictures was an abomination. I blame my mother;)
Q: What do you consider to be the best part of your figure?
A: Hmmm. This one is always hard for clients to answer, and I can see why! Maybe my legs.
Q: Which part of your figure is your least favorite?
A: I don’t have a defined waist, which makes lots of looks hard to pull off…and lots of pants hard to fit.
Q: What do you do when you’re not styling?
A: All sorts of fun stuff! I have 2 amazing kids who keep me busy shuttling between piano, drumming, volleyball, tennis, etc. Many Thursday nights are spent with my book club, which is a complete delight for me. My husband and I love to go out to eat, and with so many fantastic new restaurants popping up all over Richmond, we're never short on places to try! Life is good.
Q: Is there anything else you’d like us to know?
A: I love the idea that fashion, like art and music, is a cultural artifact. Years from now, people will include the way we dress in statements about “life in the 2020’s”. Experimenting with personal style is exciting for me. I understand that not everyone is as enthusiastic about it as I am, but when we partner together, I will share my excitement with you. I will always tell you what I think. I will give you my best so that you can be your best. Re-discovering your best personal style will be fun, and the reward is a feeling that can’t be described!
