Fashion Philosophy
"I wear comfortable pieces, but I choose good fabric and invest in high-quality pieces. Whenever I wear black, I like to add a statement accessory."

Style Staples
Cocktail dresses in classic cuts. Favorite site inspection and workout clothes are jogging pants and sweatshirts from Lululemon.

Favorite Brands
Hermès, Christian Dior, Jimmy Choo, Armani, and Tory Burch. Locally, Rajo Laurel.

Favorite Shops
Harrod’s, Galeries Lafayette Paris, Oliver Tolentino, Rajo Laurel.

Fashion Influences
"Both my grandmother and my mother always dressed well, even when they were at home."

Signature Accessories
"I never take off the watch my husband Alby gave me, as well as diamond earrings gifted by my mother-in-law."


First Big Splurge
"Alby went to the restroom while we were in Cannes. He came back to find that I had purchased a Dior bag and Jimmy Choo shoes."

What She Prizes Most
Her husband and their four kids. Also her grandmother’s ring, engraved with her name, Carmen.

Necessary Luxuries
"Regular trips out of town and out of the country with my family, my monthly dinner date with my husband, and my weekly dates with each of my kids. Of course, I can’t count out having a full body massage twice a week and visits to the nail salon."
