The best day at work I’ve ever had was: Getting to work alongside Gretchen and the rest of the team in the west coast office!  It was exciting to really be at the origin of everything we are doing out in NYC and seeing it from the other side.

The best excuse I’ve ever had for missing work was: I haven't missed a day! Just time in the showroom. :) I'll often work remotely if I am not physically up at 231 West 39th - summer is usually the biggest challenge for that. I once I had to break it to Andrew that I would be gone for about a month as I would be splitting my time between Norway and Vegas...and that if he needed me to just email me my work for the week because of all the time differences! It sounded so crazy to say to him out loud!

My favorite celebrity style: The always on-point, effortlessly classic, Alexa Chung, Erin Wasson and Victoria Beckham.

My work day soundtrack usually involves: Everything, depending on where my mind is, and the task at hand, I like to get lost in my Pandora Radio. If I am working remotely it tends to be more rock & roll/indie. If I'm working with Andrew it's usually more of a hip hop dance party - best of both worlds!

I can’t live without: Morning coffee and cartoons with Luke (my fiance @lukeditella), my camera, and my Skull Cashmere Luther Pocket Coat (seriously though). I love that sweater so much that I'll go out of my way to find a reason to wear it in the warmer months if I have to!

My favorite city in the world is: New York City of course! ;) My personal style can best be described as:  All black!  Add in some messy hair, a nude lip, and a smokey eye and I'm set.  Although I appreciate tossing in a dash of color where I can when accessorizing, overall I stick with neutral tones in my wardrobe. I am a sucker for layering, so all things sweater weather pretty much!  

Favorite 360Cashmere or Skull Cashmere style right now: The Hunter Dress (look for it in the Spring 2016 collection)! Day or night you can dress it up or down by simply using a complimentary outer layer like a leather moto jacket or a fitted blazer and a good set of booties! At night shift to wild accessories and a pair of your favorite pumps!
