I always feel like I live a double life because I work as a model in the fashion industry, so enjoy getting all dressed up in tall heels and body conscious clothing, but I also spend a lot of time at our kitchen for Model Meals, or working from my home office so I live in workout gear too. I’m a curvy woman at 5’10 wearing a size 12/14, so I’m a sucker for brands that actually cater towards my body type, or at least have great options. 

St Eve Jewelry: St. Eve Jewelry is the brainchild of one of my dear friend, Lisa Scheurmann, who has been slanging jewelry since we were in high school. Her stuff is so damn cool and it’s pretty much the only jewelry I wear. 

Show Me Your Mumu: I love their activewear sets. They have high waisted pants with bra tops that cut me in a really flattering place. My favorite is this bra with these pants. I also just bought the most FABULOUS faux fur coat from them and the XL fit me perfectly!

Goldsheep: Goldsheep make the most fun leggings ever. I have ones with gingerbread men, galaxies, confetti, pineapples, avocados, herringbone, Christmas plaid, and more. The prints are endless and so much fun. And the fit is great too. I wear an XL. 

Nike Women: I love a lot of things about Nike and I wear their gear all the time. Shoes, zip ups, pants, anything. But I’m here to give a special shoutout to the socks. I received a care package with a pack of their ankle socks this year and just fell in love with them. The fit was great! I have big feet and ankle socks almost always fall down or are too thin but these — these are a dream. Even my boyfriend Billy wears them nonstop. 

Lululemon: Lululemon is a classic go-to for me. I wear activewear about 80% of the time and I live in some of their more loungy styles of pants as well as love their form fitting zip ups. They make my butt look great and my boyfriend is Lululemon obsessed too. 

Old Navy: Old Navy is one of those places I’ve been shopping for pretty much my entire life. When my modeling agent called to tell me I booked a job with them, I was so excited. They just seem to be keep getting better. They have great basics in a wide range of sizes at affordable prices. Every time I shoot for them I find myself eagerly waiting for them to launch the product on the website so I can swoop it up.

All 67 Leather Jackets:  I recently met a designer in NYC named Jeff Cafone who just launched his business All67. All67 is a line of gorgeous leather coats made specifically for curvier ladies, sizes 12-28+. The plus size market can often be limited, especially with higher-end designer options, and Jeff is creating something so new for this group of women. They are stylish, edgy, and fit like a dream. He offers jackets in both real and vegan leathers.

My dog, Kingsley, is my best accessory. He's a 200-pound English Mastiff and he's my world. He also makes everything look like high fashion.
