Who is your favorite fashion designer and why?
My favorite fashion designer is Phillip Lim. I’ll be honest in that I don’t really follow designers all that much (mostly because I don’t have the budget to buy their clothes), but I do flip through various fashion magazines each month, and every time I like a piece and I look in the sidebar to see who it’s made by, it’s Phillip Lim. I think he just has a great mixture of amazing cuts, classic styles, sleekness and a little big of edge.
What is the one fashion accessory/item you can’t live without?
I can not live without shoes! I’m like the sister in “In My Sister’s Shoes” that buys shoes and doesn’t wear them a lot, but keeps them in her closet “just in case.” Well, I have that problem.
If you were allowed to create a beauty product, what would it be and what would you name it?
Good question.. I never thought about creating a beauty product, mostly because I can find whatever I want out there pretty much. I guess sometimes though, I can’t find the exact nail color I’m looking for, so it would be interesting to design colors for a nail polish company and develop a polish that tries SUPER fast!
If you only had 10 minutes to pack for a fashion extravaganza in your favorite city, what would you bring and where would it be?
light weight, cotton knee length cami dress, with a pair of simple sandals or flats, a cardigan or light weight linen jacket (for if it gets cold), and a pair of sunglasses for Seneca Lake near Watkins, Glen NY.
Do you live by a fashion philosophy or quote? What is it?
Don’t be afraid to try something new and different. It’s always great to have a distinct style, but I find the most fun in trying something new for a day. Fashion is a great way to express yourself because sometimes you feel like a little bit country, and sometimes you feel a little bit rock n’ roll. Fashion is the easiest way to try on a new you!
