Finish these sentences. I splurge on ...

“I splurge on pieces I would wear often.”

I skimp on …

“I skimp on trendy pieces that I might only wear a couple of times.”

Are you a shoe or handbag kind of woman?

How many do you own?

“I try not to count.”

“At the moment Obagi sunscreen.”

What was your worst fashion mistake?

“My girls and my colorist, Maria at Paris Parker, would say when I decided to go back to my hair color from my years before kids — blond.”

Your house is on fire and you can grab only one thing out of your closet; what would it be?

“I would have to grab my jewelry box … so many memories!”
