Q & A
Q. What outfit makes you feel amazing?
A. I love a peplum moment! It creates an instant waist for you. I also am an advocate that regardless of your size you can totally rock the color white. My style tip to all my Curvnistas is to wear clothing true to size especially light colors so it skims your body for a smooth silhouette.
Q. What song do you love to listen to while getting ready for a night out?
A. I'm such an eclectic music listener but some of my faves include Beyonce, Kelly Clarkson, Rihanna, Dolly Parton, Pit Bull, U2, Coldplay, Drake, Bruno Mars and classic Whitney Houston. But I must admit “Uptown Funk” by Mark Ronson feat Bruno Mars stays in heavy rotation!
Q. What is your favorite way to spend a Sunday?
A. On Sundays if I am not traveling for work, I try to attend church in Brooklyn, then by afternoon my 3 pastimes always include — Retail (shopping), Reading and Relaxation!
Q. What is your favorite color in fashion right now?
A. I am ALL about color so its hard to choose just one! There were so many amazing color pallets that I just saw for Resort 2016 presentations. Designers showed all my favorite color combos - bright purple, teal, orange, pink and skin tones like caramel.
Q. What is your favorite comfort meal?
A. I love a great Pizza with ALL the toppings! NYC and my hometown St.Louis have the best pizza pie options… #YummyTummy! But for a sweet summer treat, Magnum Ice Cream bars are d-e-l-i- c-i-o-u-s!
Q. What is your favorite place you’ve ever traveled to?
A. After working in fashion for only 2 years as a stylist assistant, I travelled to Paris for 12 days during Paris Fashion Week. We shot 2 cover stories for Harper’s BAZAAR and I attended my first of many haute couture shows. Ever since 2007, my love affair with “the city of light” has definitely continued along the years including amazing friends and lots of shopping adventures!
Q. What is your dream travel destination?
A. I am loooong overdue for a vacation! Im obsessed with beautiful sands and bodies of water. I would love to visit the island of Anguilla. The Caribbean ocean is calling me asap!
