Do you have any fashion influences? I observe the personal styles of my friends and look to vintage clothing for its attention to detail.

People say I look like: Andie McDowell. And when I wear a blonde wig I look like Uma Thurman. Typically, people tell me I look like someone they know but they can’t think of the person.
Tell us a secret: I am an obsessive-compulsive cleaner, even at other people’s homes!
