Shot at the Emily Summers-designed offices of Highland Park Village, our 2018 Women of Style embody the strong, independent spirit of the modern Dallas woman.

What’s your makeup approach? Minimal for everyday (CC cream and mascara). My focus is on good skincare, sun avoidance and SPF, and regular visits to my dermatologist.
When it comes to footwear, what do you prefer? I prefer something funky. I take most of my fashion risks with footwear—masculine Oxfords, overly embellished pumps, colorful boots—the more unexpected, the better.
Where do you like to shop in Dallas? Forty Five Ten, Dior and Ylang 23. If I have too much time on my hands at home, Net-A-Porter, Farfetch and Moda Operandi can be dangerous distractions.
What kind of jewelry do you like? A lot of detail and unusual pieces. I love layering everything, and I’m currently wearing 10 earrings (all Maria Tash). Favorite jewelry designers right now are Retrouvai, Foundrae, Bibi van der Velden and Victoire de Castellane.
