Fashion is...
Fashion what you wear, style is what you do with it.

What is your signature style, and how did you develop it?
My signature style is adding upbeat statements to my classic wardrobe staples. I developed this by building my wardrobe around essential items that compliment me and my figure. One rule: wear the dress, don’t let the dress wear you.

What does your summer shopping wishlist include?
Statement whites, tiny bags that make a big statement and sneakers.

A styling tip you live by...
Layering key pieces using the right fabrics and textures (unconventionally of course).
