WHAT ATTRACTED YOU TO RETAIL_
I wouldn’t say that I am attracted to retail! HA! To me, it’s really all about atmosphere. I adore everyone I work with at Garbarini and we have so many fantastic clients – so many of these women have personalities that can light up a room. Working as a unit and making women feel better about themselves, whether they’re attending a black tie event or going to pick up the kids, that’s what makes it special for me.
WHAT INFLUENCES YOU MOST_
FILM, ART, MAGAZINES, MUSIC
Anything can be inspiration. Just depends on the day for me.
BEST ADVICE FOR BUILDING A WARDROBE_
Before I choose something to add to my own wardrobe I make sure: 1. I LOVE it and 2. I can come up with at least 4 completely different ways to wear it using pieces I already own.
DO YOU HAVE A PERSONAL STYLE MANTRA_
Keep it stupid simple. I love getting dressed up, but will generally be found in some variation of t-shirt & jeans. This can be livened up in a variety of ways – add a great blazer, a cute shoe, accessorize like crazy.

WHAT PEOPLE DON’T REALIZE ABOUT GARBARINI_
We are here to help! I think sometimes clients can be overwhelmed by the depth of inventory. We know what’s here! We unpacked it! If you’re on a mission, tell us what you need. We can help guide you.
FAVORITE PAIR OF JEANS_
Today, the JBrand Jessie in a dark wash. It’s a high-waisted, stacked skinny. They don’t make this style anymore. I know because I tried to buy them all.
