Though this model and beauty writer is skincare obsessed, her love of fashion—and in particular, footwear—comes just as close. And when she’s not in front of the lens, she’s expertly curating thrift and vintage treasures.
First of all, how are you doing?
I am doing fabulous just taking it one day at a time. This year has been tumultuous obviously, but I made it through!!
If you could send a DM to your younger self, what would it be?
Do everything you can! Live for you & I’m so proud of you!
Describe your first memorable shoe-buying experience? Where were you, what did you buy, and how did you feel?
My first shopping experiences were with my grandmother at off Broadway shoe warehouse in Sacramento. I thought it was the most amazing place ever and I begged my grandma to buy me new shoes for school every year. I fell in love with heels there and then at 8.
How do you feel about being in the first group of women featuring Larroudé?
I am so thankful to be involved in this project and to get to work with all the talented individuals involved. The best part is I found heels that fit my wider feet comfortably!
What brings you joy lately?
The ocean brings me joy always & forever. I recently have been taking surf lessons and it’s the best thing I’ve done this year along with jet skiing.
What is your secret dream (post-pandemic, of course)?
I want to spend some time living in Paris. Even if it’s alone I need it for my soul. Then I’d love to travel to other cities and document my journey on film.
