I always feel glam when I have my hair and makeup done and when I have some major heels on.
WHO ARE YOUR STYLE ICONS?
I love Audrey Hepburn and Jane Birkin.
IF YOU HAD TO PICK YOUR MOST MEMORABLE OUTFIT WHICH ONE WOULD IT BE?
I love this outfit I wore with Scott in NYC. It was a white button down shirt, leather skirt, tights and a big black bow tie. I love the pictures of us crossing the cobble stone street in the meatpacking district and Scott had to carry me across the street because I could not walk in my Alexander McQueen heels!
WHAT DO YOU CONSIDER YOUR MOST SENTIMENTAL ITEM AND WHY?
I have a lot of pieces from my father. I treasure them. Some of his sweaters, his watches, some of his furniture, I am surrounded by his stuff.
YOU MADE YOUR ENTREPRENEURIAL DREAM INTO A REALITY WHEN YOU OPENED UP YOUR OWN CHILDREN’S BOUTIQUE YEARS AGO; WHAT’S THE BEST PIECE OF ADVICE YOU CAN OFFER YOUNG STARTUP ENTREPRENEURS LOOKING TO LAUNCH SUCCESSFULLY?
I remember making the decision to either open my own children’s clothing boutique with my mom or assisting a clothing designer. Both were amazing opportunities for me, but I am so happy that I just went for it. I took a chance on something I had always wanted to do. My advice would be… If you don’t reach beyond your comfort zone, you really can not grow.
LET’S TALK ROMANCE AND DATING —IF YOU HAD TO GIVE ONE RULE OF ADVICE TO FIRST DATERS, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
I am the worst first dater! First dates are so awkward and annoying!! Thank Goodness those days are over. But I think a casual and fun first date with friends is much more fun than a one on one typical first date.
AGREED. WHAT ABOUT YOUR VERSION OF THE PERFECT OUTFIT TO WEAR ON A FIRST DATE?
I am all about being comfortable on my date nights because if I am not, it won’t be fun for anyone. A pair of skinny jeans, a t shirt, a leather motorcycle jacket and some pointy pumps…easy and done! I like fun and easy date nights, not stuffy and fancy-shmancy.
WHAT RESIDES ON THE TOP OF YOUR BUCKET LIST?
I have always wanted to see the pyramids. I can’t wait to see them! I have also always wanted to go to Armenia…to the little town where my great grandparents came from.
