What do you love most about boutique shopping?
I like discovering indie designers and buying one of a kind items.
What are your three most prized possessions?
My health, my sanity and my grandmother’s very unique pearl necklace.
What inspired you to create your blog?
I have been expressing myself online since 1999 when I founded ProveReal.com, a fashion and nightlife image-driven blog. I was always ahead of my time. When I moved to NYC and started getting serious about styling I started blogging because I wanted an outlet to speak my mind. I was fed up of print media’s unrealistic editorials. I wanted to show women that style can be easy and down to earth. It’s focus has become to support my business as a personal stylist. My potential clients can get a taste for me and how I operate.
What do you love most about blogging?
Instant gratification. Global reach.
What are your favorite boutiques in New York City?
Catherine Malandrino, Trina Turk, and Fragments.
