Why, Hello. By means of introduction, let me give to you an A to Z.
A: What accessories do you wear everyday? I always wear my Great-Grandmothers gold wedding band and around my neck, a Georg Jensen white Daisy and a small Tiffany & Co. round head key.
I feel so nude without them.
B: What is your beauty routine? I lather myself up morning and night with The Body Shop or Elizabeth Arden’s Green Tea products. Then sunscreen in Summer and mineral make-up. The mountain climes is not to conducive to anything fussier.
C: What was the last item of clothing (for yourself) that you purchased? Miu Miu black patent, white patent and gold glitter sandals. They are a Dream.
D: Do you use a dresser, closet, or both? I have a walk-in bigger than my actual bedroom. It was a Bribe to get me to move back.
E: What type of earrings are in your ears right now? A beautiful pair or white gold and diamond circle studs from my beautiful best-friend Kimberley and her boyfriend Ryan.

G: Do you wear glasses? Yes, currently they are tort. and gold Ralph Laurens.
H: What type of handbag do you carry? I rotate between a beige Chanel, a metallic black Chanel and a wickedly destroyed seafoam green Witchery bag.
I: What is your ideal style? Nonchalant, with a heavy European bent. I have inherited the eccentricity of my British roots and have adopted the palette of black/grey/navy from the French. But I never go past tulle. Or feathers.
J: What is your favorite brand of jeans? Nudie, cliched but true. Though I do love my Superfine.
