"I like skirt suits, but if I'm at a very serious meeting or feel like I need to really get the sale, I wear pants."
Job: owner of Advanced Language Access, an interpreting service
Hometown: San Diego
Label your style: "Practical and versatile"
How do you make your outfits transitional?
I usually carry a blazer or a cardigan. I sometimes carry jeans with me, and - I've done it before - I can put them on over this.
Where do you like to shop?
Marshalls is a one-stop shop. And I'm a person that likes to go to consignment shops, because I try to bargain shop. I like to go to MJR Sales. Go on a Thursday or Friday morning when they first get their inventory.
You own a business. How does that affect what you wear?
I like skirt suits, but if I'm at a very serious meeting or feel like I need to really get the sale, I wear pants. I'm learning more and more - in certain arenas, you wear certain things to maximize your potential.
What kind of shoes do you wear?
Heels are all I wear. I wore high heels even when I was pregnant. I probably have 40 pairs. I like shoes with extra support, like I can tie around the ankle.
What kind of accessories do you like?
I love wearing scarves, but it's getting so hot I can't do it anymore. I gravitate toward really funky earrings and bracelets. I don't wear many necklaces, but I do love pearls.
Do you have any favorite beauty products?
Lola, a Hispanic makeup artist who just came out with her own line. And Physicians Formula from Walgreens.
