Shoes To Choose: "A classic nude or neutral shoe. I love grays, olives, nudes and taupes. I think that a shoe that is more or less monochromatic to your skin or can fall toward the warms, cools, black and whites is a universal shoe. You should have one shoe that is not a gold or a silver that will universally match every item in your closet. Here are some great options!"
To The T: "The perfect tee shirt! If you think about it, in fashion the one thing that has been constant for decades is a tee. I think going back to basics is always so important. I'm definitely a glamour girl myself but I can't think of anything sexier than a woman in a tee, jeans and high heels. I love my tees from Club Monaco and Splendid!"
Just Blaze: "The perfect blazer is a must in every girls wardrobe. I'm not talking about "THE OFFICE" blazer. I love Smythe! Their blazers are the perfect equestrian blazers and nothing ever fits a woman better. I wear some of mine instead of coats."
