Favorite Fashion Brands

(Promise no one is paying me to endorse them - I just love, love, love these brands!)

  • Robert W. Stolz (quite pricey, but worth every penny for the quality of Austrian Loden wool on each coat. I always get tons of compliments from friends and strangers on my coat’s lining, fit, and quality. Full disclosure - Robert is my cousin, but I wouldn’t ever promote a company brand that I didn’t personally love, love love.)

  • Banana Republic (go for the sales and know full price will eventually go on sale. Great for weekend wear and office wear. Full disclosure - My little brother works here part time at their Key West Factory store!)

  • Ann Taylor (their business suits are killer!)

  • Cole Haan (most comfortable heels I own are from here - even the 4 inch ones!)

  • Nordstrom Rack (yes, they have ongoing reduced prices of designers!)

  • Kate Spade (sales are often, and the outlet store is the best! Love her bags, home items, and office supplies, too!)

  • Zappos (free shipping both ways for reduced priced shoes, please!)

    Favorite Home/Office Items

    (Promise no one is paying me to endorse them - I just love, love, love these brands!)

  • Papyrus for greeting cards (bit expensive but people love them who receive them. It’s worth the extra $2)

  • Chick Invitations for personalized stationary (I had the best wedding invitations ever - I co-designed them!)

  • Amazon for slow burning scented candles (always sets a peaceful mood and positive energy in your home, I think)

  • Leaders in Heels journals/planners (inspiring as a fellow female leader/entrepreneur!)

  • Best Self planners and office supplies (such good get-you-going morning and evening rituals and 90 day planning tools)

  • Target (um, who doesn’t love a good Target run sometimes?)

  • Kate Spade (just love her and want to support her business and namesake after her tragic death in 2018)

  • Mark & Graham (love, love, love anything monogrammed)

  • Pottery barn & Pottery barn kids (great quality and personalization available for a lot of things)
