How would you describe your style: On my best day, I am a mix between Liza Minnelli and Phyllis Nefler from the movie “Troop Beverly Hills.”
Favorite trends: I like fringe a lot, and shiny things. I love accessories and chunky cocktail jewelry. Jeff and I have also been trying recently to make the male brooch happen.
