I knew I was a lover of fashion ever since I got caught hiding several pairs of hot pink corduroy pants as a seven-year-old. What can I say, it was not a flattering shade.

An equal opportunity shopper, I have spent my teens and 20s repeatedly switching lanes between hand-me-downs, consignment, fast-fashion and the occasional luxury splurge.

A lover of bold minimalism with classic lines, my “will not ever wear” list includes gauchos, Crocs, suspenders, Uggs and puffy sleeves.
