Everyday Essential Item…

Headphones. I have a variety of styles/colors/sizes for every occasion and I never leave home without a pair.

NYC or LA…

While there’s something to be said about being able to hop into a convertible, drive down PCH,  listening to Tupac and on your way to eat some great Mexican food, that about sums up the only way LA can outdo NYC. NYC is the epicenter of extraordinary talents and culture…

 3 Things I Love About My City…

I love that there are always new things to discover; whether a cronut, an underground boxing match between models in Chinatown, or a new graffiti artist, NYC is never dull. I also appreciate being able to have someone deliver anything at any hour (yes I’ve had toilet paper delivered). And lastly, the Vibes.  I love being amongst so many people with so much drive and passion, that’s what gives this city life.

 What’s In My Bag…

“Phone/Keys/Wallet” I repeat that every time I leave the apartment. I keep it classic with Chapstick, my go to black Bowers & Wilkens headphones are in there, a pen, a book, my business cards, Illesteva reflective sunnies, and a metro card.

 Stilettos or Flats…

Stilettos. I’ll admit I don’t wear stilettos as often anymore, because well, I’ve visited the shoe cobbler on Bleecker one too many times, but a stacked heel is a city girl staple.

Favorite Designer…

That’s a difficult question, because there are designers I like to wear because the clothes suit my style or my body, and there are designers whose artistic talent I admire. Easy answer would be Gareth Pugh. He’s brilliant.

 Things I Pack When I Travel…

Not limited to only these items, but I MUST pack-my vintage black leather Schott motorcycle jacket, my Celine python Phantom bag, gold jewelry, a pair of high-waisted black J Brand or Paige Denim skinny jeans, and a long Rick Owens or Helmut Lang skirt that I can either dress up or down.

 My Perfect Dress…

Victoria Beckham or Cushnie et Ochs. I like a classic fitted hourglass silhouette with a simple element of design, for example Cushnie’s sexy cutouts, or Beckham’s fantastic fit.

 Best Beauty Advice I’ve Received…

Not to use fancy perfumed products on my skin, keep it simple. I’m a fan of Erno Lazlo products, or if I need a quick drugstore choice, Cetaphil.

 Tea Party or Late Event…

I love to host a Tea Party, I get carried away in all the girlish glamour. But I love to attend a late night event, whether a formal affair in a gown or in a motorcycle jacket and jeans, a couple of cocktails and a great DJ is recipe for a great time.
