Fall clothing trends she loves: “Anything leather—dresses, tunics, tops or leggings.”

She’s a: “I can’t decide whether I’m more into shoes, clothes or accessories. I’d have to say all of the above.”

Style icon: “My mother, Rosalie Caruso, because she’s always dressed beautifully. She can put together an outfit from T.J. Maxx or Marshalls and look like a million bucks.”

Personal style: “I’m pretty formal. I really love to get dressed up in beautiful clothes and wear them daily.”

Go-to casual outfit for a Saturday out: “I like to wear jeans or leggings with boots and a colorful blazer, or a fabulous leather jacket—all from Etcetera.”

Go-to outfit for a Saturday night in the city: “I prefer to wear dresses when I go out, usually a black or colorful dress with a great pair of patterned tights. Whatever the dress, it’s always paired with my Christian Louboutin pumps.”

Must-have splurge: “I love to buy a new leather or suede jacket every year. They’re great statement pieces, and I like to update them annually.”

Favorite thing in her closet: “My Chanel bags. They’re so timeless, I can pull them out each season and feel like I have a new bag every year.”

Favorite fashion blogs: “The Sartorialist and the New York Times Sunday Styles page.”

Favorite local boutiques: “I’m forever grateful to the ladies at Skirt for introducing me to nude pumps four years ago. Those shoes are a godsend.”
