What would the title of your autobiography be? “She Wore A Lot Of Hats”

What can’t you travel without and why? My striped sweatshirt that used to belong to my grandmother (to dress down any outfit and easy throw on), my gold hoops (to add sexiness – I don’t wear much jewelry), Lancôme Hydrating Mask (to perk up my face in an instant before going out), and earplugs (I’m addicted – I’ve been sleeping with plugs for about 12 years now).

Where is your favorite travel destination? Tulum, Ibiza, and Gstaad.

If you could choose one person to show you “their New York City,” who would it be? Woody Allen.

What or who has inspired you recently and why? I’m inspired by all the girls I shoot for my blog. They show me their love for vintage and how they mix with contemporary, which is a great source of education and inspiration for my readers.
