Why do you do what you do?

Ever since I was a little girl, this is what I’ve wanted to do, and I love being in fashion retail. It’s my passion.
 

Who inspires you?

The women of New Orleans! They are laid-back, funky and not afraid to take a risk.
 

How do you make your buying decisions?

We always buy in New York and while we go to all our favorite designers, we also spend a day seeking out new talent.
 

Where’s your favorite place to hang out?

As I am married to Vincent of Vincent’s Italian Restaurant on St. Charles Avenue, I have to say there, but I do genuinely love it, too.
 

What’s your favorite item of clothing or accessory?

My Alexander Wang bag; it’s a trapeze bag and I love it. I also love my DVF (Diane Von Furstenberg) wrap dresses, they look perfect for every occasion.
 

Who would you most like to accessorize?

Jennifer Aniston, she always looks great, but I would love to add one piece of incredible jewelry to her pared-down style.
 

What trends do you like right now?

I am really into vinyl and acrylic; it’s colorless so it goes with everything and it’s a cool play on texture. It’s also easy to clean, so it lasts.
    

Where do you draw your inspiration?

My grandmother. She’s a lady who dresses and does her hair and make up every single day; and she’s always giving me advice! F
