Well, I may not be a fashion plate because my favorite part of being a chef used to be wearing a uniform everyday. Now that I am a bit more in the spotlight I have fun putting together my look. I have had lots of guidance from Kitty Boots our stylist on Chopped. She has introduced me to color (I was the typical new Yorker who wore black everyday) and she taught me how to accessorize. I love the big bold necklaces from Free People and Anthropologie  and when I look for something edgy and fun I buy local at Vera Meat in the East Village. 

Betsey Johnson has been a favorite of mine when it comes to girly splurges. I have a timeless fall swing coat from her and an adorable floral dress of hers that I bought for a wedding.

Mostly I rock the shabby chic look. Sam Edelman boots  or colorful converse and jeans, an oversized scarf and a borrowed blouse from the Chopped set! Don’t tell Kitty!
