One word: Describe your style?
Tell us your five key wardrobe pieces, things you find yourself wearing constantly?
"Kill City and Lip Service jeans from Trash & Vaudeville, vintage glasses, colored pearl and stone stud earrings, Obesity & Speed customized T-shirts, and lots of different kinds of jackets."
What's your best cheap score of late?
"Definitely a vintage Gaultier motorcycle jacket from Tokio 7. Definite score."
Do you have a secret store that you're willing to reveal, or a favorite neighborhood shopping spot?
"All I can say is you really need to keep your eyes open...the best stuff sometimes comes from the most unexpected places. But I admit, I love Beacon's Closet and Tokio 7 in NYC."
If you could swap closets with anyone living or dead who would it be?
"I'm happy with my clothes, I just need a bigger closet!"
Does your style have a theme song?
"There are two: 'The Promise' by When In Rome and 'Breakdown' by Carol."
Any reading material you can't live without lately?
"Illuminations by Arthur Rimbaud."
Tell us, is there anything in your closet that you simply cannot bear to throw away?
"Oh yes, many pieces, actually, especially presents. I'm sentimental. There are two pieces in particular from Charles Anastase's first collection—a hand-painted silk T-shirt and hand painted silk dress. They are so fragile and special that I can never wear them but the pieces never leave my closet. Maybe finally after almost 10 years of owning them, I will wear them this summer.
"Mine is simple: dress up, have fun with fashion, that's what it's there for."
What inspires your styling? And who are some of your favorite people to work with?
"Pretty much everyone around me is inspiring: my colleagues and confidants, and I especially love doing editorials for Purple Fashion and working with my designer friends Jeremy Scott, Zac Posen, Obesity & Speed, and Mara Hoffman."
Your style is kind of daring—is there anything that freaks you out though, that you wouldn't be caught wearing?
"Polyester. Unless it is incredible in design or the quality of the fabrication is exceptional."
We love that your closet is really messy...how do you find anything in there?
"Yes, I can always find everything because it is always organized, even if looks messy. Sort of like my own brand of organized chaos!"
