YOUR FASHION PHILOSOPHY? "Make it your own. We suggest basics and then we show how to layer pieces to personalize the look of the season. You can do that with accessories: your own way of tying a scarf, or shoes. We just brought in a spring shoe collection, which is perfect for Sarasota."
WHAT'S THE MOST IMPORTANT PIECE IN YOUR CLOSET? "My Eileen Fisher viscose jersey pieces. I've been collecting them in either black or gray for seven years. I mix and match tops and bottoms--they're packable and I always take them when I travel to managers' meetings."
WHAT ARE THE LOVES OF YOUR LIFE? "I love the water and seeing nature at its best in Sarasota Bay with my boyfriend and friends. And my cats: a 32-pound Maine Coon and a little 14-pound rescue cat."
