What she’s wearing:
Sandro shirtdrop pendant necklaceTibi pantsBoutique 9 pumps
Tucson, AZ
Describe your style:
If my fashion sense were a person, it would be diagnosed as having multiple personalities.
On weekends, I'm often found in a simple dress or Madewell tee, cargo shorts,  and Rainbow flip-flops. At work, I'll dress it up a bit with a camisole under a fitted Banana Republic blazer, jeans and ballet flats or chunky boots.
Latest obsession:
My vegetable garden.
Any beauty secrets?

Don’t tell anyone, but drugstore brand face moisturizer works just as well as the expensive stuff.

Your saved eBay search words:

Fiorentini + BakerLucky Brand jeans.

Who is your style icon?

Tim Gunn. No matter what’s in your closet, you must “make it work.”

Next on your must-buy list:

black leather Betsey Johnson satchel and an Uncle Mike’s Concealed Carry Holster to hold my keys, ChapStick and iPod when I go hiking. If anyone asks, “Is that a fanny pack?” I’ll respond, “No. It’s a concealed weapon case that just happens to rest on my fanny.”

Favorite eBay fashion find ever:

Diane von Furstenberg wrap dress that fit perfectly.

You collect…

Parking tickets.

What’s at the top of your wish list?

Canon T3i and new Uniqlo pieces. Whenever I go to New York, I always hit up the store, and by the time I get back to Los Angeles, I regret that I didn’t buy more outfits.

What’s the eBay item that got away?

brown leather Fossil bag.

Whose closet would you raid?

Halle Berry. She always looks great in casual clothes and can pull off just about any look when she’s on the red carpet.

Guilty pleasure:

Young adult novels – City of BonesThe Hunger GamesHarry Potter, etc.

Dream getaway:

A luxury cruise around the Horn of Africa.

Favorite gift you ever received:

In the eighth grade, I got a candy necklace from Brian, the cute vegetarian in my biology class whose parents didn’t own a TV. We dated for a week, but I like to think it was one of the best weeks of our lives.

What you wish would show up on eBay:

I once owned a basic red tankini with gray straps from J.Crew that I wore until the elastic wore out. I’m on a quest to find a similar no-frills, basic suit that I don’t have to worry about falling off if I dive into a pool or jump into oncoming waves – something without pleats, ties, animal prints, metallic accents or odd shapes.

Song most played on your iPod:

“Cuando Canto” by Ozomatli.

Favorite city to shop in:

Buenos Aires.
