I’ve also discovered L.K.Bennett, a British line worn by Kate Middleton. I’m obsessed with their dresses, shoes and handbags.”

Summer trends she loves: Dresses. “There’s nothing like a good one to pull your look together effortlessly, whether it be a casual maxi dress or something more structured. Slip it on with a fabulous pair of shoes, and you’re good to go.”

She’s a: Shoe person. “I’d absolutely say that I’m a fanatic. I actually needed to create a regular event to wear my vast shoe collection, so I came up with Fabulous Shoe Night. We hold monthly girls’ nights out, where we all wear our most fabulous shoes, mingle over cocktails and appetizers, and make a donation to a local charity.”

Style icons: “Audrey Hepburn comes to mind for her timeless look, but I also admire the bold choices and fearlessness of Gwen Stefani.”

Go-to casual outfit for a typical Saturday night out: “I’ve always felt that you can dress up dark-wash jeans for a night out on the town. I love to pair my favorites with an eye-catching top in a bold color or print, some great jewelry and sky-high heels.”

Go-to dressy outfit for a Saturday night out: “A body-conscious dress with an interesting drape or ruching, and my current favorite stilettos.”

Favorite thing in her closet: “My nude, patent-leather, platform peep-toe Louboutins. I wear them with everything from jeans to ball gowns, and I’ll have them forever.”

Favorite local boutique: “I literally can’t walk into Sorella Boutique in Media without buying something. I love it.”
