Motto to live by.
Never deny your heart's desires or let fear hold you back from your full potential. Live life fully and take risks. Remember to enjoy every moment of every day.
Describe your style.
I am drawn to pops of color, intriguing prints, and lots of jewelry. My wardrobe is curated with finds from local boutiques to big store brands, and thrifting excursions which all fit my feminine, playful style. There is something special about each piece I own, even my basics are not-so basic.
Who are your style icons and what inspires you?
My style icons are Victoria Beckham for her clean cut, powerful look. Rachel Zoe for her love of jewelry and boho glam.
I'm literally inspired by everything! Strolling through the Sunday market, to traveling, window shopping and reading, to checking out a new restaurant...my mind is always racing with new creative ideas.
What are your favorite shops and where do you get the most people watching done?
Seattle has such a variety of small boutiques, I love them all! If I had to pick my top four of the moment they would be Pipe + Row for my trendy finds, Divalani Style that just opened in Bellevue has such beautifully designed tops, Driftwood Consignment for unique designer finds, and The Finerie it's like a candy store to me, when I go in, I want to try everything on! My favorite places to people watch are the local fashion shows and [formal] events. It's the only time in city when you get to see all the lovers of beauty come together in their most eye-catching pieces.
