I build my daily look around?
Depends- not too much white if I'm going to be in the studio. Usually I plan a bunch of outfits a week in advance, + put those on when the whim takes me. The color of the sky helps a lot.

A fistful of rings

Most cherished item?
Baby blanket quilted for me by my Tanta Gale when I was 5.

I feel best wearing?
pink lip gloss + my rockstar sunglasses.

The first thing I look at in another Sartorialist?s outfit ...
Style- do they absolutely love what they are wearing? Does it make them feel great? Did they decide to put those things together, or buy them straight off the store model?

I always break this fashion rule.
Tall women shouldn't wear heels

Never caught wearing?
Any of these: Sneakers, sweatshirt/pants, baseball cap, t-shirt.
