One Thing Every Girl Should Have In Their Wardrobe?
Two things. Jeans and a pretty blouse. I’ve worn the same Rag & Bone pair almost every day of quarantine. And a bunch of Doen blouses. They’re so easy, well priced and look great.

Favorite EF Piece & How Would You Style It?
I have two (what can I tell ya, I’m a Gemini). The diamond evil eye necklace in rose gold and the diamond and black enamel bracelet. I’d wear the necklace with one of my Doen shirts, below, and I’d nonchalantly dangle the bracelet in all Zoom meetings.
