Fashion statement: “My style of dress is the same as in design - classic, with a little ‘edge.’ My go-to color is black. It’s classic, and you can mix it with anything.
“I don’t like anything too fussy. I need to be comfortable and love wearing jeans. You can dress them up or down, depending on the day. Add a blazer, and you have a pulled-together look. Plus I’m always cold, especially in air conditioning.”
Signature pieces: “ ‘Less is more’ is my motto so I usually wear simple hoop earrings and maybe a statement necklace, or bracelet and watch. I love fun, funky shoes.”
Recent purchase: “Shoes, shoes, shoes!”
In the market for: “Probably a sun dress, since it’s been so hot.”
