Personal style: Simple, edgy, boho and grunge, somehow all in one.
Favorite designer: Alexander Wang. I like the simplicity, strong structure and edginess he adds to every piece. As an artist, I look to Alexander McQueen for inspiration in all things fashion. I admire his off-the-wall approach to art and design.
She’s a: Shoes and accessories person. I combine my favorite Alexander Wang combat boot with a fringe bag to add edge to any outfit. I’m a hair and makeup artist, so I also like to customize my hair and makeup to simplify or enhance any outfit.
Style icons: Gwen Stefani and Poppy Delevingne.
Casual outfit for a Saturday: In the summer, I enjoy a good pair of denim shorts and a tank. I’m usually in something light and comfortable, and I’m almost always wearing my Tom Ford aviator sunglasses.
Go-to outfit for a Saturday night out: I love a good, high-waisted skirt with a cute tank and heels. Always adding hair and makeup to complete the look, of course.
Favorite splurges: Bags, shoes and coats.
Favorite items in her closet: I love to travel to different countries and pick out a piece that’s going to add a unique flair to my everyday style. I have a wide range of rare travel finds, from a leather messenger bag I found in Ireland to yogi pants I scored in Barbados.
Item that gets the most wear: I am a hair stylist and makeup artist so anything black.
Latest addition to her closet: I went to Nordstrom and got a few white blazers, which is rare for me. I’m excited to incorporate some white into my wardrobe this season.
What she’ll be wearing this summer: Open-toe shoes, especially my favorite Gabbie Ghillie booties by Frye.
