My go-to power piece is... a simple, tailored black tuxedo jacket. It’s a great piece to dress up a white T-shirt and jeans or pair the look with a little black dress. When it comes to footwear, I always... I always choose heels, and when in doubt, I play it safe with nude heels. They pair with just about everything with the added bonus of making your legs look longer. The best style advice I ever received was... to round up staple pieces that complement you and fit well. You’ll always wish you had an extra favorite on hand if the season’s trends aren’t your best look. My approach to fashion is... I love the timeless styles—tailored, sleek, classic and feminine. You can never go wrong with a little black dress complemented by great earrings or an ornate cuff bracelet and leopard-print stilettos. And I cannot forget the jackets. It may be odd since I live in the desert, but I love jackets for all occasions!

My ultimate fashion splurge is... always shoes. I love how shoes can completely change and make an outfit. I will wear a pair of rhinestone studded heels to a black-tie event one evening, then the same pair with jeans and a T-shirt the next day. The one trend I can’t live without is...oversize watches. Watches are a useful accessory that add to an outfit, and they look good stacked with bracelets. As far as accessories go, I prefer... oversize sunglasses and cocktail rings. I look best in... fitted silhouettes— sheath dresses and pencil skirts. Simple shapes are good backdrops for my shoes and accessories. Bags: big or small? Big. I like to carry everything in one place. The most cherished items in my closet are... my Sophia Webster Jumbo Lilico shoes with large white leather flowers that I wore for my wedding in April. I would never... go without my wedding ring. It is my most meaningful accessory.

My favorite pieces in my closet are... random vintage band tees I have collected over the years. I would never wear... real fur. All of my Neon Muse designs are vegan. I feel fabulous in... jumpsuits. They are my power move, and they highlight all the right places. Solids vs. prints? I love fun and wild print pants that are highwaisted. Most other garments in my wardrobe are solid colored. When it comes to jewelry, I go for... minimal and modern gold jewelry. I love a great pair of statement earrings or rings, which are often how I add a little pop of color to my outfit. Stilettos or blocks? Block heels all the way. The chunkier, the funkier. As far as accessories go, I prefer... fun hats and belts to dress up minimal outfits. I own an unreasonable amount of sunglasses—most are vintage inspired. To be fair, it’s sunny 300 days of the year around here!

In Vegas, I shop at... Patina Décor in downtown Vegas, where I found my wedding rehearsal dress—a gorgeous vintage Christian Dior corseted slip dress. My favorite handbag in my closet is... a beautifully crafted vintage Chanel— another incredible find at another local vintage shop— previously owned by a 1960s Vegas showgirl. I will always love my... black Balmain leather jacket with structured (prepare yourself) shoulder pads and gold detailing. My husband surprised me with it one Christmas. He did good. I feel most fabulous when I wear... a supersleek, silhouetted midi dress. The form-fitting shape shows off my figure while the midi length keeps it refined and classic. I look best in... the unexpected. I love the juxtaposition of sequins with distressed denim. Diamonds or pearls? I’ve never been a pearl girl; give me the sparkle.
