Q: How did you get into the fashion and beauty media industry?

A: It’s a hobby or a sport some may say. I became interested at a young age because I found that fashion was a way to express myself. I am also big on finding the best of the best and I realized early on that the best is not necessarily the most expensive. So I went on a mission to always test out products and new stores. I love popping into new spaces and meeting new people. Shopping is a way for me to do this.

Q: What keeps you in the industry?
A:
My love for all things fashion – colors, new trends, new finds. I am a pop culture junkie. I love reading the latest and greatest books and watching all the new shows.

Q: What are some trends we can look out for this fall?
A:
Gold (which I am extra excited about), military, pants, plaids, braids, tweeds, white, royal purple, oversized long coats…

Q: If you had to choose one outfit to wear every day, what would it look like?
A:
Skinny’s, colorful blazer, t-shirt, a pair of fun heels (colorful) and a wicked chain. I have a chain addiction.

Q: What is your favorite place to shop?
A:
Madison, Zara, Steve Madden, J-Crew and Barneys to name a few…

Q: Any tips for PR professionals who want to get in contact with you?
A:
Sure – send Miss Lemonaid a letter: misslemonaid@lifestylelemonaid.com
