If you were a season, which would you be?

Fall.

 

Why is having a personal style important to you?

Personal style, dressing, contributes to the narrative of the day, the unfolding of events and how one feels throughout all of it.  Getting dressed is a beautiful moment. One asks who do I want to be today?  What do I want to do today? How do I want to feel today?  One’s personal style is unified with one’s voice.  <3

 

Which Glazed NYC piece is your pick?

I love the Beverly bucket! The vinyl with contrasted stitching adds a playful touch to such a functional piece.
