What are some things you believe the fashion industry could improve on? Being more inclusive of profiles outside the norm. Everyone is beginning to look alike.
What do you think about the evolution of street style? I personally love it. I love to see people owning their uniqueness. The quirks that make us different.
What impact has style and fashion made in your life?Style has always allowed me to express where I am in my evolution. Whether it was sports bra and sagging pants a’la Aaliyah or an over-the-top ball gown; I’m here for it. Also it serves as a segway in conversations and meeting new people. It’s your calling card.

Have you ever been criticized about your style ? How do you handle situations like that? I have. I also did me. I wore studded chokers and trench shirts etc. Never did it bother me. My tastes have evolved and refined over the years as I’ve come into myself.
Who are your top three favorite designers/brands? I don’t really follow labels. I’m an “if it’s cute I’ll rock it” type of girl. Anything goes. No sequin left behind.
Tell us your favorite shopping spots in Baltimore and one reason why you love them! There are a few stores in Security Square mall I go to when I’m dire need of an outfit. A store I’ve been dying to go to is Katwalk Boutique in Fells Point. I follow her IG and her stuff is high glam and gorgeous.
What’s one “fashion rule” your proud of breaking? Being overstated and “gaudy”. Gaudy is good.
Tell us about a time you had a #fashionfail: I wore a dress to a conference and didn’t know ahead of time it would be warm inside. My dress had massive boob sweat and I just has to roll with it. It was horrible.
What is one piece every woman should have in her closet? A classic D’orsay nude or black pump
What is one piece in your closet that you can’t live without? My classic black suede pumps. Can be worn with jeans or a chic dress. Very versatile
