1. Who are the designers you like?

Garments that have been on high-rotation this summer ar by Ninety Percent, Sass + Bide, Alice + Olivia and always Ralph Lauren for dressing up, his less formal bo ho-style looks always grab me. Plus the blue + white thing, I do that a lot.

2. What sort of clothes appeal to you?

I mostly go for practical pieces day to day, lots of blue or white denim paired with knits. I love scares too

I love people watching and enjoy seeing how men and women put themselves together , but I don't really have a style icon.

Getting older is a privilege.

Yes ! Its's a big target market with strong buying power. I don't feel we older gals are " invisible " at all.

Oh entirely. My beautiful mother took her appearance very seriously. Even on a modest budget, Hollywood glamour was a heavy influence.
