Where she got her fashion chops: I worked for 16 years as manager of personal shopping at Bloomingdale’s in King of Prussia. Now, I offer shopping assistance, fashion counseling and closet management. 

Favorite designers: Max Mara, Lafayette 148, Armani, Tory Burch, Theory, Kate Spade and Vince

Favorite fall trend: J Brand jeans with J.Crew sweaters—a fun combination of high and low fashion.

Style icons: Kate Middleton, Meryl Streep, Amal Clooney and Gwyneth Paltrow. I also love Tamron Hall’s joie de vivre and her great attitude.

Personal style: I tend to gravitate toward classic, but with a 2016 edge—booties, cape jackets, and fitted trench coats with military buttons. 

Favorite splurge: A military-style blazer in velvet or lush wool. You can’t go wrong with a dramatic Armani jacket in a muted shade that goes with everything.

Favorite thing in her closet: My Weekend Max Mara poncho in gray-and-camel stripe that reverses to a solid gray. It looks fresh with jeans or slim gray pants and a turtleneck.

Dream items: I’d love to have a vintage David Webb bracelet or a Verdura Bubbles necklace. 

Most recent addition to her closet: Louise et Cie Mary Jane pumps with block heels.
