3 words people use to describe you:
Creative, Funny, & Down-to-Earth
1 of your favorite things in the world:
Design – I’m lucky to say that it’s both my passion and my profession.
Best advice you’ve ever received from your mom:
Do unto others as you would have done unto you. That’s the big one. But also, after you’ve finished getting dressed and have put on all your accessories, look in the mirror and take the last thing off. Sometimes less is more.
A novel that you recommend to all your friends?
Well, it’s not a novel, but the book I recommend to everyone is Joyful: The Surprising Power of Ordinary Things to Create Extraordinary Happiness by Ingrid Fetell Lee. It’s witty, inspiring, and will change the way you look at the world.
A hobby you’ve had since you can remember?
I am all about my daily yoga practice. It’s given me greater peace, strength, and flexibility – I only wish I’d been doing it since my 30s!
Favorite hostess gift to bring to a party?
A Selke Fleece Robe. Once you slip one on, you can’t go back – everything else feels rough and scratchy by comparison.
What does your power outfit consist of?
A one-of-a-kind dress. I care about fit and fabric, so when I find a vintage dress or coat with an especially good cut, I’ll often have two or three versions of it made in totally unique fabrics while I’m in Delhi for work. That way, I don’t see myself coming and going in the same thing as everyone else.
