You always look so perfectly put together and accessorized. What are a few easy styling tips that you typically share with your clients?
I call it Juxtaposing. It’s the #1 rule I apply to myself and my clients. When you are feeling a little too girlie and frilly, toughen it up with some strong masculine pieces! And when feeling a little too grunge or masculine, sass it up with some lace or femnine counterparts. Too much of one thing is never a good thing! Opposites attract!
What is the biggest fashion faux pas that you’d like to put a stop to once and for all?
Leggings do not count as jeans!!! I understand if you are wearing leggings with an oversized sweater, shirt, or dress but DO NOT mistake your leggings as jeans and pair it with a shirt that doesn’t cover your badunkadunk! Thank you!
“These Jimmy Choo heels are amazingly and surprisingly the most comfortable pair of shoes I own. I usually pair these shoes with a very simple outfit, such as a pair of jeans and a blouse, it creates a great juxtaposition.”
How do you like to spend your time off? What are your favorite spots in Los Angeles?
On my days off I love to spend time with my fiance and my family. We do a lot of family outings and activities. Both my fiance and my sister are foodies so we love trying out new restaurants and different types of cuisines. I always joke that I’m a foodie by default since the two people I spend the most time with are avid foodies.
“I love living in the heart of downtown LA! It’s a booming city with tons of new high rise developments and lofts with lots of young entrepreneurs living here!” BCBG tank, Forever 21 jacket, Zara skirt, Hermes handbag, Alexander Wang wedges, and House of Harlow 1960 sunglasses.
How do you sparkle?
I have been blessed to do what I truly love to do as a living and I realize that not everyone gets that chance. Every opportunity is a chance for me to teach and share with others what I have been blessed with. I want girls to watch my tutorials and take away something that will make them sparkle and feel beautiful. So I guess I sparkle by making other girls sparkle!

This dress it creates so much drama and movement that I feel like im in a beautiful love scene of a dramatic movie when I’m wearing this!”
