What's your favorite style tip?
Dress for your style, not the current trends. Trends are great, but make them your own to complement your style, not change it.

What’s your advice for selecting pieces to complement your wardrobe at the American Craft Show?
At the American Craft Show, it's going to be difficult not to select all the pieces you like, but it's important to choose what's going to take your outfit to the next level. Know what your personal style is and choose the pieces that complement it. I like classic silhouettes and neutral colors in my outfits, so I'll accessorize with pieces that would elevate the look. Textured accessories, pops of color, and understated and elegant jewelry will be what I choose.

Who are your ACC show artist picks?
I love the modern art design elements of this ring by John Strobel. It makes a statement, but it is still understated and elegant. Out of all animal prints, a textured snake is my favorite to style. The colors in this bag by Arza Gilad allow for anyone to enjoy it year-round, and the shape can go easily from a daytime, handled bag to a chic, evening cross-body. The color and pattern of these earrings by Jonathan Rutledge are such a beautiful statement paired with the gold tone of the metal. I would like to see these earrings with a monochromatic, neutral ensemble. Statement outerwear is a wardrobe staple in any woman's closet, like this piece by Gloria Lewis (left). A beautifully patterned jacket gives a chic finish to jeans and a white tee as much as it does a little black dress.
