Pittsburgh girls know and love fashion! They know what colors look good on them, what designer looks they covet, and where to shop. Pittsburgh girls are more than just Pens jerseys and Terrible Towels, they are fashionistas!

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

Lululemon or Anthropologie!

What is your favorite Pittsburgh mall?

Whichever one is closest! I love Ross Park, but I’ll dabble in Robinson and South Hills Village.

What color do you think you look best in?

Depends on my mood! If it’s a bright sunny day, and I want to run outside, I’ll wear vibrant neon. If it’s gloomy and grey, I go for the blues and blacks. You have to rock what you feel that day.

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

Lately, I couldn’t live without my go-to Max Studio maxi dress. It’s so comfortable to lounge around the house in and easy to add some accessories for a night out.

What is your favorite cut of jeans?

Boyfriend! However, I never really wear jeans. Oops.

What is your ideal winter coat?

Undoubtedly, Eddie Bauer’s WEATHEREDGE® SUPERIOR DOWN PARKA. I love being outside (even in the winter) and this is the only jacket that’s both warm and stylish.

What is your favorite kind of dress?

Classic Hepburn little black dress (or any type of colorful maxi of course!)

What is your favorite type of footwear?

Brooks sneakers! They’re the best shoes for working out and extremely comfortable. I also love my Rainbow Leather Sandals.

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

Chanel!
