1. Describe your personal style in 3 words.
Simple. Effortless. Refined.
2. Who's your style icon and why?
Depends on the day. Today, probably Pablo Neruda and Mick Jagger. Neruda has been a constant inspiration to me in both his words and his look. Rugged, yet soft... auténtico. And Mick is Mick. The guy is a legend, a living treasure. Awesome style.
3.What's your go-to wardrobe piece for a date or night out?
Right now it's my own slim fit five pocket pant in super light pima cotton in a bunch of different colors with a polo and sometimes my cotton jacket...comfortable yet put together.
4. In your list of desirable qualities in a mate how does style rank? 1st, 5th, ect? Why?
To me, style is not only what's on your back, but what's on your mind. I'd put it somewhere after Honesty, Integrity, Loyalty, Humor, Ambition and Passion... put the right clothes on top of these and you got one desirable and stylish lady.
5. What's your man repellant? (your most hated women's trend)
Definitely the square heel pump. They make me want to run in the other direction except with heels like that they probably could catch up to me. That and those pajama jeans. Why don't you just wear a t-shirt that says "I give up" instead.
