Your position at Free People…
Brand Marketing Assistant.
Describe your personal style…
Two rules — be comfy but have fun. I’m SO over sacrificing comfort for a pair of cute but non-practical heels or too-tight jeans. That being said, I love good basics mixed with funky or unique pieces that have a lot of color, like this scarf I just got as a gift from my Secret Santa!
What makes you feel confident?
When winged eyeliner comes out totally symmetrical. There’s no better feeling.
Who is your style icon?
Wendy Torrance played by Shelley Duvall in the movie, “The Shining” — queen of winter layering!
Favorite part of your job?
Getting to pet a dog every single day.
What are your beauty + wellness must-haves?
Definitely a passionate believer in masks. My recent favorite combo to start with a regular mask like Girl Undiscovered’s Stumbled Across Paradise and follow up with an ultra-moisturizing sheet mask like LAPCO’s. I’ve started using a jade roller recently as well. I find it most helpful to use over a sheet mask to distribute the serum evenly and get circulation going.
What do you do outside of Free People?
Philly has so many incredible restaurants, so I’m usually planning my next meal!
We are also blessed to have a ton of amazing vintage stores and rotating flea markets here. My best friends have a vintage business called Fishtown Cuties (a tribute to the neighborhood we live in!) so they always keep me in the loop on when the best markets are coming up… and give me first dibs on their best finds!
If you had to wear one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Leggings, a super soft XXL tee shirt, and Doc Martens.
Your favorite (upcoming) trend…
I’m very enthusiastic about this Ugg boot renaissance that’s happening. Uggs forever.
Best concert you’ve attended OR dream concert you’d love to attend:
The best ever was seeing Lorde, and it’s not even close! I saw her with my younger sister last spring. Our seats were amazing, her set list was perfect, and it was so special to share it with my sister.
Most embarrassing outfit you’ve ever worn.
A picture is worth a thousand words so I will leave you with this…
On second thought, I would probably wear this again.
One piece of advice you’d give your younger self.
Do your homework (seriously) and don’t invest in clothes that won’t last more than a season.
What’s the first thing you’d do if you won the lottery today?
Let my parents retire, buy real estate somewhere with palm trees, and adopt the maximum legal limit of rescue dogs.
