What is your favorite date spot in STL?

"I love I Fratellini because it’s so quaint and old school. Plus, you can’t beat Italian food, in my humble opinion. "

You get to travel all over. Do you have a favorite food city?

"I have to go with my (maybe obvious) first reaction: I visit Los Angeles quite a bit and love all the options. I appreciate a place where I can go to most restaurants and find something good."

What's your favorite city for fashion inspiration?

"Since I live in Saint Louis, I think this inspiration stays local for me. I love seeing personal aesthetic speak through everyday choices. To me, that is your personal style, when you make every day a form of self-expression."

 

What is your guilty pleasure dish?

"I can’t get enough Pi Pizza - the pizza is so good, but I think they have the best hummus I have ever had. Does it count if we go once a week?"

Do you have any favorite local clothing shops?

"Saint Louis has an amazing vintage scene! Some of my favorites include May's Place and Parsimonia Vintage. "

If you're looking for a cocktail after a long day of work, where do you go?

"I am a wine gal, so my husband and I love to walk over to Scarlett's or The Vino Gallery in the Central West End for a glass. "

When you were showcasing at Nashville Fashion Week last year, was there something that stuck out about how this city's fashion culture is different than St. Louis?

"Just visiting Nashville in general stuck with me. We were only in town for a few days for Fashion Week and I felt like I didn’t have enough time to soak it all in. We stayed and roamed around The Gulch so next time I am looking forward to checking out Emerson Grace and High Class Hillbilly. "
