Describe the most memorable gift you’ve ever received.
I’ve received many memorable gifts, but the most memorable would be an enormous bouquet of exotic flowers I received years ago as a token of appreciation from a clothing designer I’d interviewed and highlighted in a publication I write for. Definitely not your $40 bouquet of roses — some of the flowers I’d never seen before. I was touched. Granted, he may have had an assistant order them, but it sure SEEMED like he’d done so himself, taking special care.
How has your style evolved over the years?
My style has evolved from wanting the latest trends to sticking with figure-flattering perennial pieces, accented by age-appropriate trend forays.
