Have you always worked in fashion?
I started in the Neiman Marcus buying office which eventually led to my current role as Buying Director of Net-a-Porter.
Did you have any early influences that sparked your interest in clothes?
My 7th grade science teacher never wore the same outfit twice. That’s always stuck in my head and has encouraged me to dress differently every day.
What do you read to begin your day?
I read The Economist and The Cut for daily updates and love flicking through UK or Australian ELLE Décor. However, I am obsessed with Assouline books at the moment, especially the Chanel leather-bound set by Francois Baudot & Francois Aveline!
Favorite shops to browse?
I love browsing unusual antique & interiors shops – my favorites include Flair in Florence, BDDW & John Derian in New York, and Alfies Antique Market in Marylebone. For a sweet indulgence I love Todos Santos Chocolates & Confections in Santa Fe, New Mexico…it’s heavenly.
Do you collect any particular antiques?
I started picking up sculptures of hands on my travels, I now have quite a selection from across the globe– there are so many different styles. They’re really interesting and unusual interior decorations, not to mention a great conversation topic!
Most visually inspiring place?
Big Sur in California, it’s endlessly breathtaking to see nature at its purest.
What do you always have on hand when traveling?
A good pair of sunglasses is vital for long travel days; I like Thierry Lasry’s cat-eye frame glasses.
Do you use shoe trees?
Saint Crispin’s hand-made trees are the ultimate travel friendly shoe trees because they’re hollow and super light.
Cherish any particular heirloom pieces?
A vintage white fur coat that my mother gave to me, and a certain sequin dress from One Vintage.
If you had a uniform, what would it be?
A pair of Isabel Marant wedge trainers, boxy tweeds and slouchy silk collarless shirts from Theysken’s Theory, and Hawaiian print pants from Stella. I find that adding a pop of color to any outfit peps me up ready for anything – at the moment I’m finding that in neon separates.
The Bowery Hotel in NY makes a killer margarita.
Most stylish movie(s)?
Some of my favorites include Scorsese’s Casino and Blow Up by Antonini. I’m also super excited about the forthcoming Gatsby film.
Guilty pleasure you never feel guilty about?
Fine jewelry and massages: an incredible pair of earrings or a statement ring can instantly uplift a look, and massages are necessary for my fast-paced life.
