Where do you work now?

I work at Piperlime as a Merchandise Planner for luxury shoes.

How would you describe your personal style?

A little edgy, a little contemporary and a little girly. It’s hard to put my style in just one category!

What is your fall must have?

An amazing leather jacket is necessary, worth the money and goes with everything. I also love pencil skirts.

How does your heritage influence your style?

A lot of my fashion choices are inspired by my Indian background. I might wear a sari blouse as a crop top, paired with a casual pair of black joggers. Every time my mom and I are at the mall, she points at any jewelry and says, “I can get a prettier version of that in India for 50 rupees, I can’t believe they are selling it for $200!”

She couldn’t be more right. India has amazing jewelry, so I always stock up when I go back to visit. I wear a chunky necklace or bangles from India almost every day.
