Describe your style:
Next Generation Brahmin
How do you translate your look from the workplace to the weekend?
Structured workplace blazers look great over blue jeans and a tee!
What's in your makeup bag?
Your saved eBay search words:
Who is your style icon?
My Aunt Kay. She always says, “It’s better to be over-dressed than under-dressed.” I couldn’t agree more!
Next on your must-buy list:
Some bright lipsticks to bring color to monochromatic winter outfits.
What’s at the top of your wish list?
A Patek Phillipe Twenty watch. It’s effortlessly elegant, timeless, and made to pass on through generations.
What’s one piece you plan to keep forever?
A vintage mink stole. The former owner had her name embroidered in the lining: Lucky Watson. What a great name! Every time I wear it, I wonder who Lucky was and where she wore that stole.
What can’t you see yourself wearing, ever?
Uggs. No. Just no.
Favorite eBay find ever:
A cream 1950’s vintage wool swing coat lined in silk. It’s so warm and so chic!
I don’t think I collect anything! Thought my husband would probably say I have more than enough shoes and books.
A river cruise down the Nile.
Song most played on your iPod:
Favorite city to shop in:
Boston! There are so many wonderful local designers, fashion entrepreneurs and boutiques. Bostonians have a bad rap when it comes to style, but the Hub is actually a very chic city. Take a stroll in the South End and you’ll see all kinds of looks: preppy, hip-hop, rock n’ roll, nerd-chic, brahmin classic, urban sophisticate… and okay, a few Red Sox caps.
