How would you describe your style?
Casually refined, easy and expressive. Fashion is very much a creative language for me.

Who/where do you derive inspiration from when putting together an outfit?
I find it everywhere–people, places, art, music, age groups, eras—my eyes are always open. I’d hate to be in a place where I felt limited to thinking my inspiration has to purely come from fashion. That said, I never pre-plan what I am going to wear because I don’t know what I will feel like tomorrow.

Name a current trend that you just can’t get on board with?
It’s not a specific trend, but I can’t get behind dressing to look like someone else—no one is ever completely comfortable in someone else’s look.

Most influential designers of our time?
Raf Simons, Martin Margiela, Pheobe Philo

What fashion advice do you give people on a regular basis?
If you love a piece of clothing, wear it as often as you want to. There is nothing wrong with wearing something multiple times per week.

Interesting fact about your wardrobe?
I would say about 75 percent of it comes from ‘men’s’ collections—and about 50 percent of that is ‘borrowed’ from my husband.
