1. What are you listening to these days?
“My musical taste runs the gamut from Talking Heads to Wu Tang Clan to ’60s soul—dancing to records is a key part of my daily routine. Current obsessions? Geographer, Wild Belle & Marian Hill.”
2. What trend are you obsessing over right now?
“I’m really into lace—it’s super feminine & adds a soft touch to any look. I’m also loving blush tones like rose gold (I love all things rose hued: wine, my hair, sparkling wine, my clothes—did I mention wine?) & fun florals for spring.”
3. What’s the last book you read?
“One of my New Year’s resolutions is to read at least one book a month. I’m currently dog-earing I Wear the Black Hat: Grappling with Villains (Real and Imagined) by culture critic Chuck Klosterman & Patti Smith’s beautifully written M Train. I loved Just Kids and I think Patti Smith is one of the coolest women alive.”
4. What inspires you?
“Living in San Francisco, I draw a ton of inspiration from my surroundings. From the architecture to seasonal gardens at Golden Gate Park to street murals & art exhibits—I can’t get enough of the city around me. What I really love? Each neighborhood has its own style & vibe, so if you need a change of scenery, just walk a few blocks! On a lazy afternoon, I love sipping coffee at a café, people-watching & observing the city’s street style.”
5. Lipstick or mascara?
“Being a makeup enthusiast (the amount of money I spend at Sephora is criminal), this was a hard one. But, I’m going have to go with my favorite accessory, my best friend, my ride-or-die: lipstick. A statement color can change your entire look, plus it’s the easiest way to take an outfit from desk to dinner. My go-to shades? Kiss Kiss Bang Bang by Marc Jacobs and NARS Damned.”
