Tell us about what you’re wearing. “A handmade wool poncho with various silk yarns and threads woven through. It was made by mom Sylvia Dugas; Banana Republic skinny jeans; and deer-skin boots I got in Mexico.”

What’s the best fashion advice you’ve ever gotten? “Don’t be afraid to be unique.”

What’s your favorite trend right now? “Ponchos, I love ponchos — my mother’s ponchos.”

Finish this sentence. I splurge on ... “Jewelry and accessories.”

I skimp on ... “Everything I can; I love a bargain.”

Are you a shoe or handbag kind of woman? “Shoes, for sure.”

How many pairs do you own? “I quit counting a long time ago.”

Name a celebrity whose closet you’d like to raid. “I don’t have anyone in particular but there are several I’d like to snitch specific pieces from.”

What’s the one beauty product you can’t live without? “Anti aging cream by Obagi.”

What was your worst fashion mistake? “Shoulder pads and big hair in the ’80s. I’m over the shoulder pads but I still like big hair, it makes me tall.”

Your house is on fire and you can grab only one thing out of your closet; what would it be? “My vintage furs and handbags.”
