How would you define your look?
That’s a hard question since I don’t feel I have just one look. When you asked me to wear my favorite outfit I had a hard time picking just one. I have loved everything in my closet at some point in time.
What inspires your style?
Me, and I hope that didn’t sound bad. I buy amazing pieces from tons of designers from couture to moderate prices. I mix and match them to make my own style. You will rarely see me in one brand from head to toe. What makes style in my mind is to be able to mix it all up and still look like a million bucks.
Who is your favorite designer?
Miuccia Prada…She manages to out do herself with every collection and be so ahead of the trends. The items she designs are classic with so much style but still timeless. I can’t stop myself from buying her pieces season after season.
What fashion item would you never leave the house without?
My credit card.
Who are your fashion/style icons?
This may sound silly but the ladies from Sex and the City which really means Patricia Field. She has made so many designers household names, it is incredible.
What are your favorite labels?
DSquared2 , Alexander McQueen , Etro , Roberto Cavalli and Prada of course!
Preppy or Punk?
How would you define your mythology that you portray through your style?
I just like to look and feel good about myself everyday and this is expressed through my fashion choices. If I love what I am wearing I feel amazing!
What is your favorite decade for style?
For me it is always the future. Being a buyer and seeing what’s to come in 6 or 9 months I am more excited about what’s coming than what’s happened.
What is your favorite fabric?
I have 2 extremes…cotton or leather.
Psychedelic ‘60’s or Rockabilly?
What is your favorite color?
What item do you allow yourself to splurge on?
Sandals and Boots.
Do you need to take out a second mortgage for your style?
My mom had me calculate the total of all the footwear in my closet and I could have put a down payment on a house and that was years ago.
Diamonds or pearls?
Diamonds and lots of them.
McQueen because he is so demented.
Right now it’s McQueen.
Right now it’s Prada.
What are your fashion rules?
Don’t ever be over dressed or under dressed!
What is the most you’ve spent on a handbag?
If it’s not $1,000 it’s not a handbag in my world.
Would set foot in a thrift store?
Of course! I took my boss Eileen once in the East Village and she about died.
If your answer was yes, what is the best thing you’ve ever found at a thrift store?
A vintage Valentino black dress. It didn’t fit me so I gave it to a customer of mine at my last job. She was ecstatic.
What is the most you’ve ever spent on fashion and for what item?
$3,200 for a mini tangerine Prada suitcase. I got it in Rome with my mom.
