Q: The three essential things a woman should know about style are…
Classic pieces are worth investing in, iron your clothes, and be yourself.
Q: Please describe your style in three words.
Classic, quirky, comfortable.
Q: What is the biggest mistake one can make when getting dressed?
Wearing the wrong size! Don’t trust labels — different brands have varying sizing. Don’t worry about the size on the label and go with what fits. Wearing a size that’s too small can actually make you look larger (and really tight clothing is just not comfortable).
Q: Do you believe in role models?
Yes and no. I think there’s something to be said about looking up to someone, but it’s important to remember that people are just that… people!
Q: What are your favourite fabrics?
I do love a good summer seersucker!
Q: Are there any style combinations that you object to?
I don’t really like bandage skirts and dresses in general. I see girls pair these tight (and short) dresses with blazers; adding a blazer does not make the dress appropriate for businesswear!
Q: Which city has the best-dressed women?
I love how every city has its own style!
Q: Would you say that you are conservative or bold?
Q: What are the rules, if any, in the way you dress?
I never wear anything that feels uncomfortable. If I don’t feel good, it doesn’t matter if I look good.
Q: One garment/accessory that you can never have enough of?
Q: A woman should always look like…
She is confident.
Q: How do you select your clothing every morning?
I try to plan my outfits in my head as I fall asleep the night before, or while I’m showering in the morning.
Q: Do you have any shopping rituals?
I have a bad habit of stress shopping…
Q: We will never see you wearing…
Crop tops… just say no.
Q: Which new designers do you follow and why?
I really love J. Crew’s creative director Jenna Lyons. I love how she is always herself and isn’t afraid of color and prints!
Q: The most stylish person you have ever seen…
A ton of my peers at Georgetown!
Q: What is the first thing you notice on a woman?
Shoes. I love shoes!
Q: Which designer never fails to impress you?
I like all kinds of designers, but my favourite is nearly all of J. Crew…
Q: One article of clothing that a woman needs to pay close attention to is…
Jeans — finding the perfect fit takes a lot of patience.
Q: Is comfort an enemy of style?
You can have your cake and eat it too!
Q: Who would you like to see next in “My style”?
Q: The best word of advice you have ever heard?
Do what you love.
