*What she’s wearing:

Describe your style:

Consistently inconsistent, with a penchant for sparkle.

How do you translate your look from the workplace to the weekend?

I think button-down shirts work in any situation, so I'll switch out my work pants for coated denim or leather leggings and keep my shirt and blazer. Add some sparkly makeup or red lipstick and it feels like a whole new outfit!

What’s in your makeup bag?

Giorgio Armani ‘Maestro’ Fusion Foundation is basically Photoshop in a bottle—I rave about it to everyone. I wear NARS ‘Damage’ lipstick almost every day, it’s the perfect subtle lip color. The Shu Uemera eyelash curler is a classic and must-have, and oil-blotting sheets are another necessity.

Latest obsession:

I’ve convinced myself that if I buy cool, edgy workout clothes I’ll actually hit the gym. My theory is yet to be proven accurate, but I’m optimistic!

Your saved eBay search words:

Complex Geometries, Nicholas K., Club Monaco.

Who are your style icons?

The Olsen twins are always inspiring, and Julia Sarr-Samois is just so cool. Everything about her just oozes cool.

Next on your must-buy list:

The perfect knee-high flat black boots. They’ve got to be buttery leather, simple, not loose in the ankle, tall enough to come up just under my knee, and not cost a month’s rent!

What’s at the top of your wish list?

Rick Owens leather everything.

What’s one piece you plan to keep forever?

My mother passed on to me a beautiful bright orange wool scarf that was made in Turkey. I wear it so often, it’s become a signature piece for me.

What can’t you see yourself wearing, ever?

Thigh-high stiletto boots. I’ve only ever seen drag queens pull these off successfully.

Favorite eBay find:

Last year, I was desperately searching for Tory Burch’s “paint explosion” jeans, and I was thrilled to find a pair in my size. I also just bought a black and gray wool coat, and can’t wait to get it.

You collect…

Cats. Okay, not really, but I wish. I have a weird obsession with small leather goods—wallets, card cases, ID holders, and the like.

Dream getaway:

An isolated beach in Aruba that’s well-stocked with fashion magazines and beer.

Song most played on your iPod:

Lately, it’s “Royals” by Lorde.

Favorite city to shop in:

Boston, because less money spent on traveling means more money to spend on shopping.
