5 Favorite things to Wear:

1. Pointed toe pumps.
They accent my style so well with the added bonus of elongating my shorter frame.

2. A-line dresses
As a woman with a pear shape, this silhouette is always magically flattering.

3. Statement earrings
I’m definitely a lover of statement jewelry; earrings are my favorite, though, because they nicely complement my big hair.

4. Bright colors
I believe that bright colors best suit my energetic and vibrant way of living.

5. Bold prints
I’m an island girl, and global prints in particular excite all my style sensibilities.
