Name 3 people, places, or things that inspire your style.
I've ridden all my life, so definitely equestrian- fox hunting in particular. Not necessarily the classic boots-n-blazer look so many labels imitate, but the sport's overarching elegance and philosophy regarding attire: the concept of mixing black with navy or brown, gold with silver, and establishing one's personal "uniform"...staple items you can count on for years, sometimes passed down from generation to generation.
My sister Maddie.
The idea of "Facile-a-Porter" (easy to wear). Introduced and constantly reinforced by my mom from our very first shopping trip.
What should we envy about your job?
I make all the rules...and break them.
What item do you have way too many of in your closet?
I don't believe there's such thing as having way too many black shoes, but they're certainly a dominant species in my closet.
What's your favorite season if the only thing that mattered was clothes?
Easy....WINTER! Coats, layers, and well behaved hair.
What on-trend item should we be shopping for right now?
I'm a big fan of the neoprene movement and up-cycled fur.
What is the last song you listened to on Spotify/Pandora?
Galapagos by Zimmer.
