Q: What is your fashion motto?
A: Dress appropriately for the occasion.
Q: Other than CCB Beneficiaries, what charity/cause pulls at your heartstrings, and why?
A: We have always been active with my husband’s Airborne veteran associations. Many of the members, of wars old and recent, have yet to recover from combat in a foreign land. They put their lives on the line for our country, and where our assistance can make a difference, we make our best effort. On the other end of the suffering continuum, we have long been committed to the organizations that have helped abused animals that cannot help themselves.
Q: What’s been the most valuable learning experience as part of Crystal Charity Ball?
A: Through Crystal Charity Ball, we see the numbers and the desperation of the families who are otherwise invisible and voiceless. Giving can have remarkable outcomes.
Q: Who is your style inspiration and how do you embody them?
A: My mother, Joy, taught me that classic designs have stood the test for a millennium. By her example, she encouraged me to avoid short-term fads. I have always been comfortable with her advice.
Q: What cosmetic is always in your purse?
A: Nivea Lip Moisturizer.
Q: Where is your favorite PC/PH place to get pampered?
A: Salon Dore´ by Sebastien, in Preston Center. Great hair matters!
Q: Tell us about your favorite piece of clothing in your closet:
A: Do diamonds count?
