How would you describe your style? A mixture of both coasts. I have days when I wear silhouettes that are classic, neutral and chic, yet there are also times I’m in the mood for colorful, eccentric and playful clothing. I guess you could call me a chameleon.
The part of your style you’re known for? At the moment, my hair. Delaney at Salon 86 takes good care of me. As for clothing, it would be that I’m not afraid to take risks and love to invest in statement pieces.
The piece of clothing or accessory you couldn’t live without? A black leather jacket and my collection of pointed-toe pumps. These are my go-to items, which pair well with either the basic or eccentric styles I wear to fit my mood for the day. Oh, and a pop of colored lipstick; my outfits are never complete without it.
Hobbies? Anything that fuels my creativity. I love to write, travel as often as possible and read any poetry book
I can get my hands on.
Favorite thing to do in Des Moines?
A Friday night spent at my favorite wine bar, Della Viti, is ideal. When the sun is shining, I’m most likely paddleboarding or on a walk at Gray’s Lake. You may also find me in the crowd at Wooly’s.
