The News & Observer reached out to me before the holidays for a quick interview and feedback about fashion in the Triangle and beyond for 2012.  I am incredibly excited about the opportunity to get more involved locally and appreciate the opportunity with the N&O! Check out the interview below!

Q: In general, how would you describe the Triangle's style aesthetic?
A: I think that the Triangle has a very eclectic mix of styles and that's what is so fantastic about fashion in the Triangle. I can gain fashion inspiration from a variety of different styles, incorporate it into my daily outfits, and make it my own.
Q: .What style trend(s) do you think we'll see develop in the Triangle in 2012? What trend hasn't caught on that you'd love to see us pick up?
A: I think the Triangle has done a great job with keeping up with the latest trends in fashion. The people in this area have a great knack for what works for them and what doesn't, but I would love to see fashion become more mainstream here and be a bit more forward thinking; less reactive and more proactive. I'd love the see people in the Triangle take more risks.
Q: What trends would you like to see go away that you've found to be particular to the Triangle?
A: I would love the see Crocs completely disappear from the face of the earth, as well as Uggs with shorts or skirts. If it's cold enough to wear Uggs, then it is certainly too cold to wear skirts or shorts.
Q: As the year begins, lots of people are thinking about change. What tip or piece of style advice would you offer to someone pondering a style fresh start?
A: Purge your closets! I'm just as guilty as anyone for holding onto clothing, but I've had to make a concerted effort over the years to go through my closet every season and remove clothing that I haven't worn in a year or doesn't fit anymore. Having a closet that isn't full of clutter and clean will allow you to really assess what the holes are in your wardrobe and identify what you need to do from there. Beyond that, my fundamental advice to anyone who is looking to expand their closet or fill in the gaps is to build a strong foundation in your wardrobe. By investing in classic pieces, you'll find it is incredibly easy to build upon those to incorporate the latest trends and upgrade your look.
