Which three words best describe your style? eclectic, bohemian, glam
Who’s your favorite style icon? My maternal grandmother. She was always "dressed", believed in being overdressed at any time and didn't care what anyone else was wearing. As a tween, I loved digging in her mega closet (she was a treasure trove clothing/accessory hoarder). Her skincare regimen was on-point and always a priority. She bought my first "heels", taught me to be proper for an airplane ride, to keep my nails well-manicured, and loved to spend hours shopping. I spent hours teasing her hair to the perfect pouf! She became ill when I was old enough to do any real shopping/styling with her, but if she had been well, she would still have been rocking a bikini at 65!
