What do you do?
I'm a Style Editor at Google Shopping.
How do people at your work dress? How do you like to dress?
A lot of people around campus dress in t-shirts and jeans, or basic blouses and dresses. On my team, however, we all have our distinct personal styles and really like to have fun with what we wear.
When you are rushed in the morning, what’s your go-to outfit?
A maxi dress and either flats or boots (cowboy boots or riding boots), and I would try to grab either a large necklace or a large bracelet.
How long have you used StyleUp, and why do you like it?
I've probably used StyleUp for about a month now, and I like that it inspires me and helps get my juices flowing for what to wear the next day. When I get the email with the weather report, I'm like, oh yeah - time to start thinking about this!
Who is your style icon?
I like Solange Knowles, Ginnifer Goodwin, Julia Sarr-Jamois, Amanda Brooks and Shala Monroque.
What are your favorite local stores in San Francisco?
There's a boutique in my neighborhood called Mira Mira that I love. A couple of other shops are Love & Luxe for jewelry and Aldea Home to decorate my imaginary dream home.
What shoes are in your heavy rotation lately?
I just bought a pair of J. Crew's gold glitter ballet flats, those are great. I also recently bought a pair of gold polka-dot Toms that I'm loving.
What personal style blogs (other than FashionistaLab) do you like?
Black Girl Crush - which is my newest side project. Fashion Bananas, Where Did U Get That, Vintage Virgin, Raww, Song of Style, and Atlantic-Pacific. These bloggers aren't necessarily ones that share my personal style, but I still love what they do and how friggin’ well they do it.
You win $1000 that you can only spend on clothing and/or accessories. What do you buy?
Marni and Stella McCartney heels on sale at the Outnet. I would spend the remaining amount on a present for myself since my birthday is at the end of the month. [Ed Note: Happy birthday!]
