Describe your look:
Professional and eclectic

What do you consider a “fashion don’t”?

What is your favorite piece of clothing? A leather jacket – you can wear it for any occasion, really. You can dress it up or dress it down.

What is your must-have accessory?
A good pair of studs and a good pair of pumps

What is a fashion crime you have committed?
One time, as a joke (years and years ago), I wore purple pleather pants, but then I ended up really liking them, so I wore them again not as a joke. After several comments from my friends, I decided that wasn’t the best idea, and I should give those away.

Where are your favorite places to shop? Bloomingdale’s, Nordstrom, Club Monaco and Es-kell in Wicker Park

What completes your look?

What is in your bag?
My laptop, headphones, business cards, my weekly/monthly planner (can’t go anywhere without that), a random variety of lip glosses and light blue Extra gum.

My closet is full of…
Shoes. You can never have too many pairs of shoes!
