Putting up the same Christmas tree each year, after starting my own little family. It’s our 4th year.

What is your favorite holiday meal?

Turkey with gravy and cranberry sauce, and round after round of stuffing. Nothing kicks off the holidays like a traditional meal.

Let’s just say *next* year I would love to try making my favorite pumpkin pie.

The best holiday present you’ve received?

Your best holiday gifting advice:

Patricia

My best friend shows that she really knows me by the little things she picks out to make a perfect package. Knowing someone’s taste is heart warming.

R&S

Your greatest achievement:

Patricia

Becoming a loving mother. This might sound cliché, but I am actually proud to have found the best husband and father to my baby boy.

R&S

What do you love most about your work?

Patricia

Seeing all different girls and women wearing my pieces all over the world, and how they style it with their personal touches in ways I wouldn’t have predicted. It's absolutely a fantastic feeling.

R&S

Your (real life) hero and why:

Patricia

My dad. He once jumped out a window that I fell out of as a baby. Long story, but he jumped out after me! (I landed without a scratch in an apple tree.)

R&S

Your go-to power outfit:

Patricia

There’s not a specific outfit, but it's about styling. When I know I look good, but don’t look like I tried hard, it makes me feel confident. Otherwise a pair of heels does the trick nicely!
