My idea of perfect happiness is: An early morning walk during foggy SF mornings, holding a spicy chai almond latte with my shih-tzu in tow.

One time: I followed an extremely stylish woman in Florence into the shops that she visited. Turned out to be Isabella Rossellini.

I would love to have a wardrobe like: Diana Vreeland, infused with a bit of Belstaff.

I always carry: a purse sized perfume bottle and dental floss.

I would never wear: workout clothes as an outfit, unless I’m going to the gym.

I’m still waiting to do: the entire wardrobe for a movie biography about Maria Callas.

I’m inspired by: Amelia Earheart, the first female adventurer with her own signature style.

When I was a kid, I wanted to be: a ballerina with the American Ballet Theatre so I could dance with Mikhail Baryshnikov.

I collect: all kinds of indigenous masks from every country I’ve traveled.

My all time favorite thing at home is: my iron elephant mask from Myanmar.

If I had a month off, I would: be a contestant on the Amazing Race.

One of my favorite place to visit is: Scotland.

A bucket list item I have is: to race camels across the desert along side the Bedouins, Indiana Jones style!

I live: between the East Village in NY and Russian Hill in SF.
