What’s the best thing about Netrobe?
It’s a guilty pleasure! Not only do I get to have a constant stream of street style looks and what people like to wear, but I also get inspired by how people style their outfits and take a sneak peek into their closets. It’s a really social and friendly way to dress up. Like going with your girlfriends for shopping, but you can just do it from your couch.

Which trends are you loving right now?
I’m loving short leather full skirts and knee-high boots for the fall and winter seasons. I’m also loving strong leather army boots, especially ones that pair nicely with leather leggings or with a flowy dress for a softer look.

Which bloggers do you love following?
I always look at what my girl Evangelie of Style Heroine is wearing, but I also love Soraya Bakhtiar, Camille Over the Rainbow and The Fashion Guitar.

Who are your style icons?
I’m a mix: classic, yet contemporary. I like to look back to the signature styles of Grace Kelly and Jane Birkin, while admiring the versatile styles of Diane Kruger, Elin Kling and Olivia Palermo.

Which five things from INTERMIX are on your must-have list?
Oh gosh, more than five! But let’s see…that leather biker IRO jacket, the red Valentino clutch, the black and white Torn dress (in fact, I already bought it!), the Giuseppe Zanotti suede zipper booties and the mason by michelle mason houndstooth pant.
