Tell us about what you’re wearing.
“A BCBG dress, Antonio Melani platforms, vintage Coach purse and vintage jewelry and belt.”
What’s your favorite trend right now?
“Longer hemlines. A right-below-the-knee or mid-calf skirt looks so ladylike, and you can still make it less girly with accessories.”
Finish this sentence. I splurge on…
“Shoes! If my shoes are uncomfortable, I turn into a goblin. Happy feet, Sarah’s sweet!”
I skimp on…
“Jewelry. Most of my jewelry is thrifted. Ladies, please keep giving your old jewelry to thrift shops. I will gladly take your old treasures!”
Name a celebrity whose closet you’d like to raid.
“I have a few. Rachel Bilson: she’s petite like me. Cher: I want her headdresses from the ‘Cherokee Nation’ days. Or Karen from WhereDidUGetThat.com (http://www.wheredidugetthat.com). Her closet is phenomenal!”
What’s the one beauty product you can’t live without?
Your house is on fire and you can grab only one thing out of your closet. What would it be?
“Either a crochet tunic my grandmother made in the ’70s or my black patent peep-toe pumps.”
Make us laugh. What was your biggest fashion mistake?
“Bedazzled and glitter fabric painted sweatsuits. It wasn’t my fault, I was 5!”
