What do you do when you’re not selling shoes?
How does your city inspire you?
LA is so accepting of individuality. Everyone’s fashion is inspired by one another and there aren’t any real rules we have to abide by out here. If there are, we are the exception to breaking those rules.

My must have shoe for summer is the XFOLIATE. It’s strappy, it’s funky, and sexy all at once

Boyfriend jeans, crop tops, pencil skirts, and pops of color.

Not that I know of... Describe your style in 3 words.
Edgy, Chic, and FABULOUS!
What is your style mantra?
“Everyday is a fashion show and the world is your runway. Always dress to impress and walk with confidence.” People are going to stare… make it worth their while!
What are three things you always have with you?
Lipstick, my cell phone, and my credit card--true shopaholic essentials!
What do you think about when you’re putting an outfit together?
I usually think about how my style can inspire others.
Fill in the blank:
Everyone should wear more color.
I’m secretly addicted to shopping, it's cheaper than a psychiatrist.
My guilty pleasure is Tumblr (makes up for not having Instagram).
I'm lusting after Pinkberry
My number one rule is treat others the way you want to be treated.
I try not to take too many selfies.
I can’t live without my make up bag.
Always give back when you can.
Never give up.
When I first wake up I wake up like 'dissssss *Beyoncé hair flip*
A typical day includes singing in the shower, about five wardrobe changes, work/school, and then sleep… Ahhhhh, sleep! The best part of the day.
Right before I go to bed, I deep condition my hair and give myself facials while watching Mean Girls or Clueless (Yes this is a daily routine, and yes I know all the words).
