What is one store could you spend thousands of dollars on clothes in?
I can easily spend thousands at Charming Charlies. You can't beat quirky, fun and affordable jewelry, hats and purses!
What is your favorite Pittsburgh mall?
I live closest to Beaver Valley Mall, so for the convenience alone, its one of my favorites. It also doesn't seem to draw the crowds like other larger area malls do, so it's nice to do holiday shopping there, especially at JCPenney and Boscov's, which both have unbeatable deals.
What color do you think you look best in?
Deep purples, bright blues and all shades of pink usually look best on me.
What is one piece in your wardrobe you could never live without?
During fall and winter, I practically live in my schoolboy hats! I have two that work well with a variety of outfits: a funky, brightly colored checkered one and a tan, more neutral plaid hat. They're perfect for windy and cold days.
What is your favorite cut of jeans?
I love bootcut because it offers just enough fit and flair.
What is your ideal winter coat?
I have a great black down coat that I use for coaching. It's so warm and stylish that I actually wear it off the ice as well. It's become one of my go-tos for winter warmth.
What is your favorite kind of dress?
I love a good sundress because this style is flirty, feminine and comfortable. You can easily dress it up or down with the right accessories or shoes.
What is your favorite type of footwear?
I am such a tennis shoes girl! I'm all about comfort and practicality. In the colder months though, I stash away my tennis shoes for comfortable and durable boots.
Money is no object, who is your favorite luxury fashion brand?
I really adore the designs from Jenny Packham.
