Seen here wearing a Betsey Johnson cream lace dress and floral headpiece from Passion Flower.

Occupation:

Owner, Viva La Diva event design and planning

Shopping:

Madewell. “I’m their No. 1 fan.” Also, J. Crew and some Anthropologie.

Fashion style:

“I’m the busiest person on the planet as a wedding planner. I like to look good, but I like it to look effortless. I’ll take something simple and classic like a black pencil skirt, then add a pop of color like a mustard silk blouse. I love yellow. My favorite winter coat is yellow.”

Favorite designer:

“Right now, it’s Elizabeth and James, and shockingly, it’s designed by Mary Kate and Ashley. It’s really amazing. They’re great designers. I like Marc Jacobs, too.”

Style tip:

You don’t have to spend a lot of money to look good. You don’t need a closet full of clothes to look good all the time. You buy a few quality pieces that you mix and match with things you already have.

Fashion debut:

“I was into fashion when I learned to dress myself. My parents used to complain because my room would be clean, then I’d get ready for school and try on 14 outfits before I’d decide what to wear.”
