Style Advice:

–“I love entering a thrift store, and, for instance, find a typical trashy item from the 80’s and style it with something unsuspected from a different era and make it something new and unseen.” 

–“Colors are very important to me, I love mixing them with neutrals. I don’t need to look like I fell into a box of crayons but softer.”

–“I get inspiration from anything really. I pick up stuff from old ladies, older people are so creative and inspirational. “
