Tell us a little bit about yourself.

I’m a mom of 2 little girls, a Computer Science teacher, and an ex-Opera Singer. I was born in Russia, and came to America just in time to start 8th grade—as if Jr. High wasn’t tough enough when you do speak the language! Somehow, I managed to find the love of my life online, way back in the days of mIRC, and now spend my days trying to be the perfect wife, mama, teacher, and many, many other things.

How did you discover Gwynnie Bee?

Through my husband, who was invited to join the company before it had a name 🙂 .

How would you define your sense of style? What colors, cuts, and brands do you gravitate towards?

I’ve never had a sense of style to speak of, other than preferring conservative, dark clothing. Jeans and whatever’s comfortable was the best I could hope for in daily wear. After a few years with GB, though, I’m really learning what works for my body, and wearing more color than I ever thought possible. So far, Nic & Zoe has been a real stand-out for me. I still prefer simpler styles with clean lines.

Where do you find your confidence?

Oy… Mostly in my daughters’ generous admiration, and my husband’s very eloquent eyes. But I’m still looking.

Do you experiment with trends or stick to the tried and true classics?

Oh I wouldn’t know a trend if it came over and introduced itself. Whatever GB surprises me with – that’s what I’ll be trying to rock.

Who, or what, influences your style? Where do you look for inspiration?

There are a few women in my life with similar proportions and far more sense of style, but more often than not, it comes back to the magic white box and my family’s opinion.

Any additional words of advice for the Gwynnie Bee community?

I’ve been a customer for several years and what I’ve learned is to over-stuff my virtual closet (click to tweet). Things that I’d never even try on in a store often are the ones that get compliments from my students on or a sizzling glance from my husband. GB has never steered me wrong yet, and I’ve actually had customer service contact me when they believe (correctly) I’ve closeted a wrong size. Oh, and revel in the perfection of a half-empty, fully-organized real closet at home!
