Personal style: Sophisticated, with a touch of prep. I trend toward A-line skirts and dresses, and I covet anything with sparkle. I also like to keep it relatively simple. I think a strong Rolex watch and a dainty gold necklace are timeless.
Favorite designers: I love Alice + Olivia, Tart, Carven, and Lilly Pulitzer. Lilly combines all of my favorite elements into one—colorful, tailored and versatile.
Fall trends she loves: I’m a huge dress person, so I love transitioning this easy piece from season to season. Fall means long sleeves and dark hues like blue and deep purple.
She’s a: Shoe person. You’ll always see me in heels—day or night, work or play. My two favorites are Chanel and Salvatore Ferragamo. Ferragamos are my go-to. They’re ultra-comfortable, and I have their heels in every single color.
Style icon: Jennifer Lopez. She embraces her curves and selects pieces that are very flattering for her figure.
Go-to casual outfit for a Saturday out: I always opt for a comfortable, breezy dress with kitten heels. You’ll never catch me in flats. High heels give me some extra height.
Go-to outfit for a Saturday night in the city: A sexy, fitted Carven dress with high heels. I love tastefully showing my curves and kicking my daytime look up a notch.
Fashion splurges: Coats. They’re effortlessly chic and super-functional during the fall and winter months. My two favorites are a long Burberry coat and a black leather jacket from Tod’s.
Favorite thing in her closet: My Cartier Love bracelet. It’s pink gold and embellished with a couple of diamonds. It was a birthday present from my husband.
