“I just moved from NYC where everyone wears black all the time, so I’ve been having so much fun expressing my personal style every day.”
Your position at Free People…
Assistant Allocator for Intimates.
And tell us about your costar. Her name, how you two met, what her favorite things are…
Penelope Anne Louise is a 1 1/2-year-old French Bulldog, who I had been dreaming about for far too long. We met in the Bronx (aka Penny from the Bronx) and fell in love at first sight! She LOVES attention from humans and wants to be friends with all dogs, BIG & small. Peanut butter & watermelon are her favorite snacks and cuddling is her favorite hobby!
Describe your personal style…
I dress for me. Whatever makes me feel good each day is what I wear — often times that’s jeans and a t-shirt, but sometimes it’s a dress or lots of layers. I started in the industry working in shoes, so most of the time my outfit is defined by my footwear. I have more shoes than anything in my closet. I just moved from NYC where everyone wears black all the time so I’ve been having so much fun expressing my personal style every day.
What makes you feel confident?
Finishing a great workout – these days it’s boxing!
Who is your style icon?
SJP – in real life and as Carrie Bradshaw, Sienna Miller & Caroline Daur.
Favorite part of your job?
Collaborating with my team! 😊
What are your beauty + wellness must-haves?
What do you do outside of Free People?
My favorite things to do outside of FP is spend time with my family; we are all really close! My brothers and cousins are in Philly and we are always trying new activities, from ice skating to throwing axes! I also visit my sister a lot in Park City, Utah where we hike or ski and play with my 9-month-old niece, Evie Anne!
If you had to wear one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Levi Wedgie jeans, We The Free Be Free Tunic (own every color, I am obsessed) & fun cowboy booties!
Best concert you’ve attended OR dream concert you’d love to attend
Queen! I am SO sad I will never be able to hear Freddie Mercury live.
Most embarrassing outfit you’ve ever worn.
I played field hockey most of my life, and in middle school we would wear our uniforms to school on game days. The look consisted of a red and white checkered knee length kilt with a white polo tucked in. I of course had to make it my own by popping the collar and wearing high socks with pool slides. Not my best look!
One piece of advice you’d give your younger self.
Don’t stress — everything happens for a reason.
What’s the first thing you’d do if you won the lottery today?
Take my entire family to Greece & get Penelope a sister pup!
