Where is your favorite place to visit in Houston, for inspiration?
I am a foodie and love to eat. So my favorite place at the moment is North Italia located off Post Oak. It reminds me of a restaurant you would find on a little side street in Italy. The handmade pasta along with a crafted cocktail is amazing
What is your guilty pleasure at the moment?
Binge watching TV. There are some many great shows on right now. I am loving this new show called “This Is Us” on Hulu. It’s a comedic drama that has some amazing twist that you really have to pay attention to figure out.
What was your last fashion or home purchase and Why?
My Showroom in Midtown is like my home. I just purchased a white triangular table from Amazon and clear plastic chairs that work well with it from Hobby Lobby. The table and chair legs are both made of wood which creates a great cohesiveness.
What is your favorite "Go To" piece in your closet?
My pair of G-Star denim. The fit and fabrication are supreme and they look great with a button up and blazer or just a t-shirt.
What is your favorite "Go To" piece in your closet that transitions from day to night?
For me it’s all about the shoes. It’s Fall so it’s also boot season! My go to transition piece would have to be my dark brown Chelsea boots. They pair nicely with a dress slack or denim.
