Name a trend you’ll never retire: Leather (not the real stuff of course). It amps up and adds edge to everything. Not to mention makes me feel like a total badass.

What’s your approach to shopping? I vow to never buy anything that isn’t on sale.

Define your style: An (affordable) mix of classic staples with interesting (usually trendy) twists. Think if J. Crew met Zara at Target.

One thing you can’t leave home without: Makeup setting spray. Eliminates oil and keeps makeup looking fresh all day.

What’s your style mantra? When in doubt, wear red lipstick.

If you could shop with one celebrity who would it be and why? Cara Delevingne, because she’s a crazy hilarious fashion icon. It’s rare to see those two worlds meet.
