What You Love to Wear: The way I look at style is that it is very personal. You have to dress the way you feel, and lately it has all been about comfort for me. Wardrobe uniformity is a thing of the past. Mix and match, pay attention to shape, print and patterns, create the unexpected and more importantly have fun!
What You Hate to Wear: Maxi dresses
What You are Afraid to Wear: Nothing.
What is Work Appropriate/Your Typical Workplace Attire: Always bring your confidence to the office first! Wear a look that will allow you to be most productive. I go between the black and white minimalist look and casual chic - cool sneakers and crew-neck sweatshirts. Always stay bold!
Do You Like to Accessorize (Jewelry, Scarves, etc.)? I love fine jewelry especially bracelets and earrings!
Favorite Stores/Boutiques: This is such a difficult question. Lately, I have been visiting Una Mae’s Chicago store. They sell new and vintage wardrobe and accessories.
Style/Fashion Tips and/or Advice: Do not wear what’s trending. If it is defined as a "trend" it already screams last season. There is nothing in my closet that I don’t wear.
Stylish Aspirations: How to make elegant look contemporary by mixing chic and casual basics. I am all about the idea that athletic-wear can be luxury. Styling sporty with romantic pieces is the most modern way to dress.
