What inspired you to start a blog and what do you love about blogging?
While I was working as a fashion editor at Style Network, a colleague suggest I started a blog on the side. She said I was already dressing up all the time for work so why not share my outfits with the world? It was another outlet for me to give women fashion advice. I loved how I could inspire them with my aspirational yet achievable style. And to this day, my favorite part about blogging is when I get a comment, email or tweet from a reader saying that she recreated one of my looks and it gave her a boost of confidence.
Who or what is your biggest style inspiration?
My mom. Growing up, she always looked so pulled together. Her trick? Sticking to classic pieces that work for her body type. I took that advice with me over the years, and will often update basics with trendier accessories.
What style rule(s) do you live by?
Dress for your body, not the trends. Of course, we all want to keep current. But there are so many trends out that you don’t have to rock all of them! Pick ones that work the best for your figure and leave the rest to other fashionistas.
Could you please list 5 pre-fall wardrobe essentials for every woman?
What 3 items could you never part with?
The pair of heels I splurged on with my first paycheck, a sentimental necklace my mother custom designed for me and my grandfather’s watch
What are your secrets for looking put-together and stylish while traveling?
Look for items that don’t wrinkle. Jersey or bandage is great for travel. Also, stick to one color palette. That way you don’t have to pack as much! And always have a statement necklace or three on hand to bedazzle your looks.
If you could only wear one outfit for the rest of your life, what would it be?
That’s a tough one! As much as I’m a dress girl I’d have to say a fab fitting pair of jeans, comfy v-neck tee, statement blazer and stilettos.
Whose closet would you love to raid?
Olivia Palermo. She has the perfect combination of classic and current pieces.
The accessory I never leave home without is ____________.
A pair of heels
What’s your guilty pleasure?
Ordering pad thai and watching True Blood and Real Housewives of New Jersey on Sunday nights.
