Playing dress-up was always one of my favorite games as a little girl. I loved watching my mother get ready to go out. She emulated all Jackie Kennedy's looks from sheath dresses to huge shades to the bouffant hairstyle. I worked in retail summers in college. Through the years, friends often asked me to help them pick out what to wear - from Prom dresses to outfits for their kids' Bar/Bat Mitzvahs and weddings. I spent several more years in retail after graduating with a degree in Art History. With motherhood came lots of volunteer work, including chairing numerous fundraising luncheons and fashion shows. Years later I returned to retail as one of the original personal shoppers/stylists at Nordstrom's Tampa store. I had a large and devoted clientele for 7 years, many of whom followed me into independent personal shopping, wardrobing and closet editing. I have been part of South Tampa's Etcetera collection team, styling and selling the trunk show line since 2007.
