What’s your favorite trend right now?
Finish this sentence. I splurge on...
I skimp on...
“Workout clothes. I typically work out at 5 a.m. I’m not really worried about what I look like at that hour. I’d rather save the money for a great outfit or a good bottle of wine!”
Are you a shoe or handbag kind of woman?
“Without a doubt, a shoe woman!”
How many pairs do you own?

Name a celebrity whose closet you’d like to raid.
“Can I just have all the clothing from the ‘Sex & the City’ movies?”

What was your worst fashion mistake?
“Waiting until the last minute to get a floor-length gown. I ended up with a dress looking like a mixture of Rainbow Bright and Pepto-Bismol. Needless to say I’m not wearing it again!”
