Style philosophy: Style is truly personal. It’s a unique way of communicating who YOU are without ever saying a word.
Personal style: Classically edgy with random pops of loud color.
Favorite label: Chanel
Most meaningful item in my wardrobe: A vintage fur stole from my late Aunt Yolanda. She had a unique sense of style that most definitely influenced my love for fashion. Her name is embroidered on the inside of it...it’s a piece I will always cherish.
Favorite jeans: Anything Madewell!
Biggest splurge: A gorgeous velvet couture Sherri Hill gown. I wore it when I competed for Miss Georgia in 2008 and 2009.
Greatest steal: I snagged the Karen Walker Super Duper Strength sunglasses on major sale and her frames are NEVER on sale. It was definitely a win that day.
Designer I’d choose to create my Oscars gown: Leanne Marshall
Favorite place: New York City. There’s just something about the energy of the Big Apple that speaks to my soul.
Perfect Saturday: Starting the day at one of my favorite coffee spots followed by a leisurely brunch al fresco with my husband completed by an afternoon of adventure around the City.
