Tell us about what you’re wearing. “My top is from Frock Candy, the wide-legged pants and Dolce Vita wedges are from Purple Rocks boutique, the gold earrings are from Currie and I’m carrying a Louis Vuitton Delightful handbag.”

What’s the best fashion advice you’ve ever gotten? “YOU wear the clothes; they don’t wear you. Confidence and a great smile are the best accessories.”

What’s your favorite fashion trend right now? “Colored jeans … I love them! I also love color blocking.”

Are you a shoe or handbag woman? “I am definitely a shoe woman.”

How many pairs do you have? “Who is counting? Not me!”

Finish these sentences -- I splurge on ... “Well, it depends. I think you can pair a fabulous ‘splurge’ item with anything and it can transform the outfit. Sometimes, the splurge item is a pair of shoes or a top, and other times it’s a piece of jewelry that makes the difference.”

I skimp on .... “Hair products. My hair is usually straight. I wash/condition/dry and head out the door.”

Name a celebrity whose closet you’d like to raid? “Reese Witherspoon. I identify with her because we are both mothers, and we are similar in age, and I love her classic style.”

Your house is on fire and you can grab one thing out of your closet, what would it be? “My Louis Vuitton handbag! My aunt gave it to me just before she passed away from cancer, so not only is the handbag completely fabulous, but it is also quite meaningful to me.”
