Get the look: Wild Devine Dress.
Where are you from?
Orange County, CA.
How would you describe your personal style?
My style is simple with an edge. I believe in having really great basics like a great pair of jeans or a leather jacket and then mixing them up with all sorts of things. I’m also a big fan of layering.
What essential items do you always like to have with you when traveling?
My own pillow & blanket!
What do you love most about your job?
I love the fact that my job changes every day. One day I could be on set styling, another day shopping, another making something for a shoot — you never know! I feel blessed to work on a wide array of projects, with really talented folks. It’s inspiring to be surrounded by creative people!
Do you have any exciting plans for this summer?
Summer is the best because it’s festival season! I absolutely love going to music festivals. I will be at Outside Lands. We’ll also do some mini trips to Big Sur and the Russian River, which is always a fun adventure.
What is your favorite meal?
Chez Mama in Potrero Hill. Amazing French food. I get mussels, steak tartare, some vino and I always have to order a Nutella banana crepe.
What is the last book you read?
I’m in the process of reading Grace Coddington’s biography. Wonderful woman!
What is the last album you bought?
We collect records. We have lots of old school tunes, so I’ve been trying to get newer music lately. The last was Father John Misty. He’s so dreamy.
Describe Free People in three words.
Free spirit, adventurous, cute!
