We chat one on one with the General Merchandise Manager and Creative Director, Trunkshows, of Moda Operandi — where you can now shop the Tory Burch Fall 2014 collection, straight from the runway here.

My style is…
Mood-dependent. I love playful details and unexpected pairings as much as I love classic understated looks — it depends on what the day holds.

And my style mantra…
It’s only going to look right if it feels right.

Unexpected style icons of mine…
The Hitchcock blondes.

My personal styling trick…
I start with one piece I want to wear, regardless of whether it’s a shoe or a coat, and build my look from there.

Here, I’m wearing…
Tory’s Emmy ankle skinny jean from Fall 2014, a Delpozo top over an Equipment shirt and Tabitha Simmons shoes.

Go-to look for a fashion party…
There should be no such thing as a go-to look for a party! That’s the perfect time to dress outside the box.

My first fashion memory…
From the age of five to six I refused to wear pants because Snow White didn’t wear pants. She was my first fashion icon.

Emerging designers I’m excited about…
Rosie Assoulin, Vika Gazinskaya, Delpozo

In my closet, you’d find the most…
Beautiful vintage frame bag from the Forties that I bought at the Paris flea market and had restored in New York.

Insider tips to editing your wardrobe…
Keep pieces that are “so you.” What that means changes over time and your wardrobe should reflect that.

Best style advice I’ve received…
“Could you sometimes just wear a t-shirt and jeans?” — my husband

    I love the hot pink sleeves on the Delpozo top! They really bring out the pink polka dots in your pants.
