Your most regrettable style phase:
Regrettably, there was a phase with some big-shouldered jackets. My friend, Sarah, removed most of them from my home when she was dog sitting for me a few years back – they have never been seen again.
Favorite Instagram account to follow:
What do you love most about your work?
The people. We have an awesome team at XO Group – super talented, creative and smart. I also love the constant drumbeat of interesting business challenges to solve.
One piece of advice you would give your 18 year old self:
Worrying is a waste of time and energy.
Skincare product you can’t live without:
Anything Chanel. I wore it on my wedding day, and I’ve never stopped wearing it since.
The beauty product found in your bag at all times:
Believe it or not, my best fashion and beauty product lives in my iPhone’s dropbox. Before I started this job, I worked with this wonderful stylist, Sarah Shirley. Using items I already had, she photographed me in a myriad of wardrobe combinations creating all sorts of outfits I never thought I had. When I am tired, I go to my dropbox and pick out something she matched up for me – sort of like Garanimals for adults.
Your greatest achievement:
My daughter Tegan. She is the bomb!
Your favorite restaurant for brunch and your go-to order:
Café Lalo on West 83rd Street – their steamed eggs are wonderful.
Where does your credit card get the most use?
Yikes. I just checked my American Express account online – “merchandise” came up as the category where I spend most of my money. And the #1 store in 2014 for me? Vince!
The trend you hope never goes out of style:
May the ever-so-forgiving trend of big shirts with skinny pants never go out of style!!
