What is one store could you spend thousands of dollars on clothes in?

It’s not a physical store, but I do enough browsing on the ModCloth website that I’m sure I could do some serious damage if let loose in their warehouse.

What is your favorite Pittsburgh mall?

I’m not really big on malls, but I do love going out to the Settlers Ridge/Robinson area. It seems you can find anything you’re looking for out there.

What color do you think you look best in?

Black or dark purple.

What is one piece in your wardrobe you could never live without?

A good comfy pair of black knee-high boots. My favorite pair has seen better days, so I’m working on breaking in a pair that I got for a great price at Ross.

What is your favorite cut of jeans?

Skinny jeans. I used to hate them and thought they were very unflattering on me, but I think I’ve learned what types of tops and shoes work well with them for my body type. I love that you can dress them down with flip flops or sandals, or make them a little more fancy with dressy flats or boots.

What is your ideal winter coat?

I don’t mess around when it comes to staying warm in the winter, so I tend to go for function over fashion. Long, puffy, furry hood. Eskimo-chic maybe?

What is your favorite kind of dress?

I love a good A-line. Over the summer I found an amazing A-line dress from ModCloth. I feel fabulous in it, and I would wear it every day if I could.

What is your favorite type of footwear?

As much as I love my knee-high boots, I can’t deny the comfort level of flip-flops.

Money is no object, who is your favorite luxury fashion brand?

I seriously have no knowledge of luxury fashion brands
