What and who influences your style?
Well, my grandmother was a seamstress. She used to make ball and wedding gowns and she had a very impressive wardrobe herself. She was fashionable and elegant til the day she died at 84. My mom had a collection of high heels that would challenge Imelda Marcos’. They were definitely the instigators that implanted this “clothaholic” seed in me. For a time, when I was younger I used to follow Charlotte Casiraghi’s European style, you know so effortless and chic. But I also take cues from fashionable friends. I observe a lot and copy certain things from this and that person, then I combine the different elements in a way that would suit me.
What’s your favorite outfit you’ve ever worn?
My wedding dress, hands down. I wish I could wear it everywhere.
Any childhood or early fashion memory?
Of course, I grew up surrounded by women who could saw and that were very much into fashion. I especially remember my other grandma’s collection of hats from the fifties, as well as her furs and jewelry. I used to play with some of them.
One in which I could showcase my showmanship. I’ve always loved speaking, dancing and singing in front of people. I’m not afraid of the spotlight. I also like entertaining, hosting parties and cooking for people. So maybe hosting a cooking show in Food Network, like that of Giada di Laurentiis would be great for me.
What gets you going, interest, passion?
I like the Arts, Politics and any intellectual endeavor. I am passionate about quality and talent. I like good food, good music, good films, beautiful clothes and surroundings, but most important of all , I love having caring and genuine friends.
I’m nosy, what do you really do for a living?
Right now? I work for a boutique, teach Spanish and do voice acting while I finish school.
What 3 things do you wish someone had told you when you were younger?
That I am capable of achieving what I desire. The truth about marriage and relationships, you know, that they take hard work and that life is not perfect.
What’s the most adventurous thing you’ve ever done?
I can’t tell.
Describe your perfect day/perfect vacation?
A perfect vacation would be in Europe traveling by car, hopping from little town to little town with a bunch of good friends and trying out food and wine. Also Bali would be amazing.
2) Open and bright spaces. I hate confinement. I love balconies and big windows.
Fill in the blanks…
Whenever I’m bored I usually play music and dance by myself and I facebook (shame).
Don’t tell my husband but I hate his hats, shhhh…
If I were deserted on an island, I would pack my iPod and my laptop and would call Rob.
If I had superpowers, it would be going back in time to fix mistakes.
I wish Twenty York Street asked me about I think all the questions are great!
