Tell us about a favorite childhood memory about your clothes. 
Oddly enough one thing that sticks out in my mind is my obsession with my Annie pajamas. I wanted to wear them outside and my very mother thought I was insane. I snuck them out of the house to try to wear to dance class and got my ass handed to me when I got caught. Makes me laugh thinking about it now. But I guess that’s sort of sad isn’t it?
A happier memory is of getting to wear purses to church when I was really little. They were always like white and patent leather. I would go around my room and try to figure out what to put in it. My mom would put peppermints in them, otherwise they’d basically be empty!

Could you tell us your top three style tricks/DIYs? Style Tips:
1. Play dress up in your closet when you’re not in a rush getting dressed to head out. Try things on mix and match what you think might be unusual pairings, you’ll usually be pleasantly surprised at what you come up with.

2. Be inspired – I don’t think any stylish person gets dressed without influence. Magazines, blogs, movies, art, cities you’d love to visit, etc.

3. Wear what you like, unapologetically.

What a babe! I'm adoring her use of colours — I love my greys, blacks, and neutral tones, but I'm always so in love with gals who rock out with brights!

Love it 🙂
