Favorite designers: Calvin Rucker, because of the fit. The style is also perfectly cool, with just a hint of creativity for the artsy side of me, while still somehow always maintaining a classic yet modern vibe. Veronica Beard is sexy, elegant and cool, and at the same time, it looks effortless.
Spring fashions she’s looking forward to: We have new McGuire jeans coming into the store this spring. These jeans have almost an athletic stripe down the sides, but in grosgrain. I’m also excited about all the feminine tops we have coming in.
Personal style: A casual mix of sexy, edgy and feminine. I love mixing ripped jeans with a silk blouse, or a great moto leather jacket with a feminine skirt, or a crisp tailored top with something a little boho. It’s the element of surprise—pairing things you might not think work together.
Go-to casual outfit for a Saturday out: Jeans, a basic athletic black tank top, and black boots.
Go-to outfit for a Saturday night in the city: Tighter jeans, a better black tank top, and higher-heeled boots.
Favorite splurge: Shoes and boots, and my go-to brand is Prada. I can actually run in Prada, and I don’t even run.
Item in her closet that gets the most wear: My Getting Back to Square One black leggings with leather sides. These leggings are so flattering and comfortable and such an easy piece to put with anything for a great look.
