EMc: How do you carry your signature style into all aspects of your life be it home decor, entertaining, or fashion?

SC:  I consider myself to have timeless, classic taste with a bit of a girly and preppy twist. In fashion, I love a little black dress, a simple ballet flat, and subtle diamond stud earrings.

I think in regard to my decorating and entertaining style-it mimics my fashion tastes in that I like very traditional, classic pieces. I love decorating my home in blue and white just as much as I love dressing in it! And entertaining is all about making others feel comfortable and I’d like to think that my outfits are comfortably cute too!

EMc: What is your personal definition of “signature style”?

SC: I think everyone has a ‘signature’ style and they might not even realize it! It can be something as simple as wearing the same special jewelry every day or sticking to a certain color palette or wearing dresses more often than anything else.

EMc: Give us three words to describe you. Why did you choose these three words?

SC: This is a tough one! Optimistic, hard working, and fun! I’m always looking at the glass half full and looking to have fun in all aspects of life, but that’s not to say I’m all play and no work. I love working towards a goal and getting things done. I’m a go-getter and really like to feel accomplished and successful in any area of life!

EMc: What are three of your most prized pieces that you think fully represent your signature style? This could be a piece of furniture, jewelry, art, etc.

  • My Cartier tank watch. I wear it every single day. I worked hard to save up for it and love the classic, timeless design.
  • My Donald Robertson Jackie O framed artwork. This was one of my first pieces of artwork that I ever purchased. I might be Donald Robertson’s biggest fan and was thrilled when he did his signature painting with gaffer tape and other household items featuring Jackie O. I’m a huge fan of Jackie O so to have his work and Jackie O all in one, it’s definitely a favorite!
  • My antique radio cabinet from my great uncle. My parents had a set of antique radio cabinets that they were gifted for their wedding from my great uncle. They are gorgeous mahogany wood with intricate detailing. My parents gave me one and I turned it into a bar cabinet. It looks like a gorgeous, antique piece of furniture, but when you open the doors, you find allllllllll of the things for cocktails!

EMc: What is your best tip to encourage others to find and develop their own signature style?

SC: I definitely suggest trying new things and being open to anything! Even just trying a new nail color can really invigorate your outlook and revamp your style. I also think it’s important to truly love the pieces you are wearing and as long as you love what you are in, you’ll always feel comfortable!
