Personal style: I always like to be comfortable, yet feel a little sexy and stylish.

Favorite designer: Balmain. I think everything he does is so original and cool.

Go-to look for a holiday party: A great dress with some sparkly shoes.

Color trend pick for winter 2012-2013: I really like the greens this season.

Can’t live without: My iPhone.

I wouldn’t be caught dead in: Something that is out of fashion.

I splurge on: Great shoes. I think shoes really say a lot about a person. They can also make a simple outfit fabulous.

I skimp on: Tank tops.  I wear them so often, I want to be able to get rid of them without feeling guilty.

Fashion icon I’m most inspired by: Jane Birkin and Jackie Kennedy. Everything they wore would be just as stylish today. Their style was timeless.

My idea of the perfect holiday: Being surrounded by friends and family. I also like to feel that I’ve helped a less-fortunate family enjoy their holiday as well.
