“I am a proprietor of eccentricities, oddities and taste. Also a stylist and writer and maker of things.”
How did you arrive at your Style Statement?
I was fortunate enough to work with Carrie on a photoshoot and we immediately connected. My Style Statement session was an interesting experience as we both work in the “style” field. But the approach and process was much more intuitive and organic than what I’m used to in my practice.
What was the first experience that reflected your Style Statement?
I think it was a thought rather than an experience, and something very pure and simple. But it was reflecting upon my words and realizing that in Modern Feminine, I am drawn towards simplicity and clean lines. Although I understand my style very well, I always thought I was drawn to things more elaborate and interesting, yet in my closet and day to day what I feel best in is the luxurious basics I own.
Is there a specific event, goal, or desire you’re applying your Style Statement to?
I wouldn’t say an event, the part of my Style Statement that is most important is to integrate Modern Feminine into my life and trust my own intuition. It is a essential part of me, and I want to embrace it.
What does your Style Statement mean to you?
It was very interesting receiving my two words. Carrie told me one’s second is often more challenging, and for me oh so true. I always had this marked idea of what “Feminine” was, and I suppose in some ways avoided that. Yet, rephrasing what feminine is was an interesting experience in challenging my own set of beliefs and reformulating them. That was the most meaningful part to my Style Statement.
How has your Style Statement been useful to you? How do you apply it to your life?
I have been able to focus in on what “style” means to me, and maintain a clearer picture of this what looks like for me. Be it based on my clothes – wearing jeans and a tee or out for a day of shopping. Not getting lured into all the glitz and amusement my head might be tempted by. More than anything it’s another level of awareness and a different perspective I think is great to explore.
What do you like to be noticed and appreciated for?
I like to be noticed most for my artistry and chic-ness. My brain and my generosity.
What inspires you? How do you know when you’re inspired?
I’m inspired if I DO. Suddenly life happen with a little more ease. Anything really has the possibility to inspire me. It can be a smell, a color, a thought.
If you could only wear one outfit for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Describe your dream home?
Just one?! There are different dream homes floating in my head. Different ones for different ocassions. Most definitely is a tropical beach house where all the windows remain open and I can hear the ocean and the wind.
How do you play?
How do I play…hmm I think probably gathering my friends. Feasting, laughing. And my dog Sarge. These are all my play. Oh, and dance parties in my living room. I’m the only guest.
