Where She Shops: “I love to shop local and support the fabulous indie boutiques here in Philly. Some of my favorites are Arcadia, Sugarcube and Third Street Habit, as well as Nino Brand for clothes. Concrete Polish and Bario Neal for jewelry.”

Sound Bite: “I’m from London so I love to mix things up a bit and wear colors or pieces together that you wouldn’t typically wear together. And I love accessories. I travel a lot and love to discover new designers on my trips abroad. I love the abundant talent here in Philly and all the local independent businesses which showcase these talents, from art galleries to boutiques to musicians to fashion designers … the list is endless. The street art scene is prettying amazing, too.”
