What's the most indispensable piece of clothing in your closet?
My Hermès scarves. They've been a running theme for a while now.
Whose style do you admire and would you most like to emulate?
My mother's. Her style is classic and timeless, but it also has a trendy aspect to it without looking like it's obviously trendy.
What does style mean to you?
It's a reflection of someone's personality. If it's a gloomy day, maybe I'll wear a chic all-black outfit. If it's a nice day, I'll reflect that with color.
Describe your personal style.
I like to take certain things from the latest trends but keep grounded with something classic. Nothing overly loud or too wild or revealing. I am modest in terms of showing skin.
Where do you shop for clothes?
Holiday Boutique (on Beacon Hill); and J. Crew.
Where do you shop for home decor?
My store! My parents' storage unit, for stuff they don't use. Also, Koo de Kir and Anthropologie.
How often do you shop?
Maybe once or twice a month.
Who or what inspires your choice of clothes?
Audrey Hepburn, Jackie O. I love their clothes, with that simple, chic, classic element and style.
If you were making up this list, who is the one person you would include?
Jessika Pavlic, the girl who owns Holiday Boutique. She always looks cute.
