 How do you define your personal style?

I always have trouble answering this question about myself. But I’d say my style is classic, feminine with a touch of contemporary.

Who is your favorite style icon?

I don’t have one specific style icon, but I admire the style several ladies including Solange, Tracee Ellis Ross, Michelle Obama, Lupita Nyong’o, and my mother.

Do you follow fashion trends?

I follow fashion trends because I love fashion. But I only wear them selectively. I wear what I like, what fits in my budget, and what I think is flattering for my shape and stature. If that also happens to translate into being on trend, that’s great, but it’s never my sole goal.

Tell me something cool about yourself.

I can whistle really well.

Who is your favorite designer or brand?

I would have a hard time narrowing it down to just one. I love Tracy Reese’s pieces because of the feminine shapes and vibrant prints and colors of her clothing. I also admire the chic, tailored looks of Rachel Roy. The use of innovative print mixing and use of color from Duro Olowu always draws my eye. And inevitably, when I see a pair of shoes I really like in a high end store, they are by Proenza Schouler.

Name the one thing you never leave home without?

A book or some other type of reading material.

Name an item every woman should own?

A flattering black dress. It can easily take you from the office to happy hour with the addition of some accessories and a rep lipstick.

What song sums up your life right now? Why?

I haven’t really been listening to much music lately, so one song doesn’t come to mind.

Do you have a favorite quote?

“If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude.” – Maya Angelou

How are you leaving your mark on the world?

Using my communication skills to help others in my professional life.

*Bonus Question: What’s on your holiday wish list?

I’d love a nice pair of headphones for the holidays. I’m really into listening to podcasts like Serial these days so it would be nice to do so without the cheapie ear buds I am currently using with my phone.
