How would you describe your taste in clothing?
I love a classic tailored look. For example, a total look for me would be a suit with a nice silk blouse and pearls, or a dress with a jacket. And always the proper shoes.
What's the newest thing in your closet?
It's a new black double-breasted Evan Picone blazer and a good looking houndstooth skirt. What's the oldest thing in your closet?
The oldest things are a couple of Pendleton skirts that never seem to go out of style. And I wear them since I lost weight.

I have two things, one is my wedding dress and the other is a pair of custom made riding boots, that I bought years ago at Deluxe Saddlery.
