Favorite summer bright? My favorite bright this season is the tangerine techno stretch cross back fitted dress from Victoria Beckham. It is so chic, sexy, and flattering!
Favorite summer fragrance? I love MIMOSA eau de toilette from Calypso St. Barth. I get chased down the street and asked who makes that by men, women, and children. It smells fantastic.
“Must have” summer shoes and bag? When you’re five-foot-four, the must-have shoe is a wedge. A nude wedge is a summer essential because it makes your legs look endless and works with everything in your wardrobe. I love the nude wedge pump (paired with white skinny jeans) from Christian Louboutin. It is perfection. For bags, a bright pink clutch is perfect for every occasion. My favorite is by Claire Vivier. The bigger the better.
Draped Cashmere Shrug from Donna Karan
Your “Go-to” summer uniform? White skinny jeans from Adriano Goldschmied and either a white silk shirt from Zara or bright-colored silk tops from Joe Fresh in New York City, which I have in lavender and poppy!
How do you work the same dress when going to two different climates? For the long black dress in the summer, I wear it with skin-toned heels and a big gold cuff. In the winter, I pair it with black opaque tights, a bright shoe, a black blazer ,and an obi leather wrap belt.
Three “must-haves” in your suitcase for a summer weekend? My long maxi dress by Nieves Lavi. It works for everything and it is silk, so I can roll it in a ball and it does not take up any room. My ‘Skinny Britches’ shaper shorts from SPANX. They are so thin and do the trick. And a strapless bra from Fantasie of England, the only thing that can support my chest.
Are you are a cap or a hat girl during the daytime? Neither. I am not a hat girl.
Necessary summer indulgence? Jewelry! Other than my link bracelet and watch from Verdura that I never take off and am obsessed with, I love any combination of turquoise and gold especially with all white or hot pink or navy. I found this double teardrop necklace necklace from Marlyn Schiff in the LA Mart.
