How would you describe your style?
My style is everywhere I must say. One day I could be completely Urban and Boho, the next day I could be classy and elegant. It definitely depends on how I’m feeling that day!
If you could shop anywhere, where would it be?
I would love to do major shopping in Paris for a week! I’d do so much damage there. It’s definitely every fashionista’s dream.
Who do you look up to in the fashion industry?
Anna Wintour is definitely my idol.

Confidence means the world when you don’t over do it. Staying humble is key. I’m confident in what I do and it shows without me having to flaunt.
What do you want people to gain from your work?
I want people to gain a sense of originality. I want them to look at Her$tyle and be able to think and see things different. I just don’t want us to be another blog. I want us to inspire others to believe and achieve!
What career advice do you have for TheeFashionStories readers?
Make sure you sure you experience all of you interest! Having knowledge in a little bit of everything will get you a long way. Just make sure you’re building on that knowledge as time goes by.
What makes your work or brand different from your peers?
I reach out to EVERYONE. Whether they are the CEO of their own company to being a fashion designer, everyone has a chance to inspire someone! I don’t want just the latest scoop, or the hottest fashion. I want interviews with people who have worked hard to be where they are and succeeded. I want relatable pieces. That’s how my work is different from others.
What is your biggest dream or aspiration?
To own my own media company in Chicago, LA, and New York and to also own my own clothing store/boutique.
What mark do you want to leave on this world?
I want to leave my mark as the biggest woman media mogul and business-woman. I have high expectations for myself, and I can be a perfectionist at times as well.
