style icons: Olivia Palermo for modern day styling, and Grace Kelly; her style was so timeless and effortlessly elegant.
favorite designers: I’ve always been inspired by Oscar de la Renta (I worked alongside him and his team for 3 years) and Christian Dior in the 50’s.
favorite stores: The Katie Fong Boutique! We just opened in April, and have partnered up with some wonderful accessory vendors to create a unique and inviting shopping experience.
handbag: The Belgian Bag by Hayden Lasher – I take my black one everywhere.
shoes: Manolo Blahnik heels, Chanel Flats… I probably have a dozen Jack Rogers for the summer.
denim: J Brand or Rag and Bone, always a dark wash in a skinny fit.
city day look: I’m constantly on the go, so comfort is key for me. Black J Brand 811 Photoready Denim, Theory Cotton White Top, flats, and a light scarf by A. Barclay
country day look: The Julie Dress, a white lace and chiffon swing dress, from my Spring 2015 Collection. It’s the easiest piece to take from day into night just with a change of shoes.
evening look: Lace and silk anything, and probably from my Collection- accessorized with statement earrings, an evening clutch, and simple pumps.
currently eyeing for your closet: Fairchild & Baldwin Victoria Bag in taupe/white and Andrea del Bello Rock Crystal Quartz Statement Necklace.
items you splurge on: Shoes… my biggest weakness!
items you save on: Dresses! I design so many, I usually always wear my own.
beauty essentials: Skinceuticals CE Ferulic, Organic Almond Oil (amazing as a moisturizer), Bobbi Brown Bronze Shimmer Brick
signature scent: Coco Mademoiselle by Chanel
salon: Christopher Noland in Greenwich
destination: Nantucket, Massachusetts. I’m a New England girl at heart, and I’m most creative when I’m by the water.
hotel: I recently stayed at the Equinox in Manchester, Vermont. It was the perfect low key, relaxing weekend trip, and so beautiful.
restaurant: Le Penguin in Greenwich (and right across from our store!) The most amazing truffle fries….
3 essentials you can't live without: My ivory and white lace dresses (I wear them all year around), my iphone (work consumes my life!) and my moleskin notebooks… I always carry one with me since I’m forgetful if I don’t write something down, plus I never know when I will get an design idea!
