Who are you here with?
My husband, Russ
What are you wearing?
My dress is by Carmen Marc Valvo. My ring and bracelet are from Congress Jewelers, and my necklace and earrings belonged to my late mother.
What about your bag? I have a very dear friend who has her own linen company and researches fabric all over the world. [She found this] fabric that we dubbed the hairy leopard and had a seamstress make it into an evening bag.
Do you have a fashion philosophy? I tend to be fairly simple with my clothes. I like to have a statement bag or piece of jewelry.
Who or what influences your style? I love Donna Karan, and I’ve always been impressed by a great look that looks effortless. That’s not always easy to achieve.
What are you most comfortable in? Pants
What is your favorite accessory?
I have a great handmade bracelet from Unique Boutique.
What new trends do you like or dislike? I’m not a trendy person. I tend to like a classic look, and I update with great accessories.
How important is fashion in this area? It’s very important. You can tell by the variety and level of stores Naples has supported successfully.
It allows flexibility in how we express ourselves.
