Why did you curate the Hunter Rubber Tote and what do you love about it? I love the sporty-chic nature of Hunter rubber totes. The design is simple and sleek which is ideal for any day bag (tie a scarf around it and pair it with a shift dress and slingbacks for lunch), but the practical nature of the rubber finish makes it the ultimate in polished practicality—perfect aboard a boat or for picnics in the park.
Favorite meal: Cajun chicken at Bilboquet (with that sinful Salade Bilboquet on the side).
Recent purchase: My black Hunter wedge rain boots.
Hidden talent: I am a karaoke queen (I have an award to prove this).
Book/Film recommendation: I am a Mad Men fan. Not only is the show entertaining, but I learn something every time I watch a new episode. I have recently started reading the screenplay.
Restaurant recommendation: L’Ami Louis in Paris, Harry’s Bar in Venice, Enzos in Zermatt. Any place I can be with good friends.
If I had $20, I’d… : Want to save it…but I’d spend it in a flash.
Transformative travel experience: Going on a Safari in Kenya. I still have a hand-carved ivory elephant that I traded for a Yankee baseball hat.
Favorite neighborhood: Hanover, New Hampshire.
Dream holiday: Any place sunny where I can swim or ski with people I love.
If I could solve one problem, it would be: World hunger.
I wish people cared more about: Other people.
Recent aha! moment: Life is prettier when you take time to step back and see the big picture.
The world would be a better place if: Everyone could learn to laugh at things more easily (including myself).
