WHO ARE YOU—IN A SENTENCE? 
  
A modern-day aesthete and lover of life who revels in wanderlust, seeks learning new things, and feels joy from everything beautiful.
 
 

  
WHY THIS DRESS? 
 
The skin-toned color evoked my openness at the time I chose it. Also, there is something Grecian and goddess-like about it that drew me to it. It reveals a side of my style: playful and effortless elegance.

MANTRA?
 
Everything in divine precision.
 
 

   
HOW DO YOU DEFINE BEAUTY?
 
An individualistic sense of total satisfaction with whom one is and the confidence to radiate that outwardly with truth, compassion, and love.

FAVORITE FASHION ERA?
 
Belle Époque (corsets, hats, gloves, gowns, luxe) and 1930-40s Hollywood glamour (color, fit, femininity).
 

 

    
FIRST THING YOU DO IN THE MORNING WHEN YOU WAKE UP?
 
Express gratitude.
 

 

    
LAST THING YOU DO AT NIGHT?
 
Wish my husband and dogs sweet dreams.
 
 



   
Fashion is important to me for a few reasons: as an element of self-expression, a pulse point on my mood, and a radar on my creativity.”
