How did you get into fashion?
Brenda Romair, founder of Chatta Box, hired me as the stock girl while I was in high school and I’ve never left! I’ve always been obsessed with fashion and dressing people to make them feel beautiful. It’s so rewarding.

What’s special about the store?
Our personal service and our huge, specialized selection. We carry the best of sportswear, formalwear, shoes and accessories; plus we can dress mother, daughter and grandmother! We define one-stop shopping for the whole family.

Who would you most like to dress?
Brittany Brees.

What’s Chatta Box’s style?
On trend, but classic enough to wear for years. Our style is forward, simple and sexy.

What fashion trends are you seeing for spring?
Neutral, earthy tones and pastels; treatments such as ruffles or fringe; cropped tops with full leg trousers; tuxedo stripe meets sports; slip dresses; and tea length skirts and dresses.

What are your most popular lines?
Trina Turk, Lafayette 148 New York, Badgley Mischka, Sherri Hill, Bailey 44, Teri Jon, Robert Rodriguez, Kay Unger, Finley, Jovani, Black Halo, Rich & Skinny, Genetic and Watters & Watters.

Clear out wardrobes or keep clothes forever?
Clear out because it can help someone in need and it’s healthy for your wardrobe; but keep special pieces because they always come back!
