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
