The statement collar necklace. It was a gift from my wonderful roommate and it adds a little sparkle to my outfit… and my cubicle!

What is your strength?

Reality TV. The trashier the better. I’ve definitely vegged on the weekends and blown through seasons of Russian Dolls and Mob Wives… yes those are real shows.

I’m a tequila girl.

What makes you a Stylish Bird?
Not keeping my personal style contained to a label or category; having the confidence to wear things that might make others pause; embracing colors and textures
