“My style that inspires the collection is not just one, it’s a combination of classic, sexy, modern and glamour.”
“I like a monochromatic look that feels effortless yet chic. All you have to do is add a pair of hoops, a bracelet, some booties and you’re done.”
“When dressing sexy you need balance. If it’s too short, you don’t want to be showing a bunch of cleavage. If it’s long, then you want super tight. You want it to be sexy but classy.”
“I love bling and embellishments, but I want to find new, modern ways to incorporate them, so we did smaller, flatter sequins.”
“For years I would never wear black, but now as I’m more mature or maybe just as fashion has changed a little bit, I feel like it looks so modern.”
“I don’t really have a rule or formula about wearing rings on multiple fingers. I just do what feels good and when it’s all together it works!”
“I do love the pop-of-color look and I feel like it works right now.”
