Tell us about what you’re wearing.

“It’s an Old Navy bargain buy; a maxi dress with my go-to black cardigan, a Stella & Dot necklace — it’s my favorite — and gladiator flat sandals from Frock Candy that I got on super sale for $10.”e_SClB

What’s the best fashion advice you’ve ever gotten?

“Wearing big clothes doesn’t make you look smaller; wearing clothes that fit is very important.”e_SClB

What’s your favorite trend right now?

“Not that I do it, but I love all the color.”e_SClBe_SClBFinish this sentence. I splurge on...

“Makeup and hair.”

I skimp on... e_SClB“Everything else, so I can afford the makeup and hair.”e_SClBe_SClBAre you a shoe or handbag kind of woman?

“Both. I probably have 20-30 pairs of shoes. I’m starting to hand down my purses. I’m keeping just five. When I get a new one, I give one away.”e_SClBe_SClBName a celebrity whose closet you’d like to raid.

“This might sound crazy but Oprah. Have you seen her shoe closet? It’s amazing!”e_SClBe_SClBWhat’s the one beauty product you can’t live without?

“Any lip product — balm, gloss. I probably have 10 lip products in my purse right now.”e_SClBe_SClBWhat was your worst fashion mistake?

“Overalls, they’re never good. I’m embarrassed even saying that.”e_SClBe_SClBYour house is on fire and you can grab only one thing out of your closet; what would it be?

“Nothing from my closet but definitely my purse with all my stuff in it. It has all my lip gloss! I love to shop, so I can replace the contents of my closet but makeup comes and goes and you might not be able to replace it.”
