What's the secret to great style?Knowing what works for your shape. I like high-waist bottoms because they make my legs look longer.
How do you organize your closet?Everything is color coordinated, from dresses to tees. I have a cubbie for each hue, which makes things easier to find.
What's a simple way to update a room?Table lamps are the perfect accent. Place them atop a tray next to a candle or a stack of magazines to add height and texture.
Coolest app for traveling?Truphone is super cheap for making calls internationally on Wi-Fi.
The key to hosting a memorable party?Serve macaroons from L.A.'s Bottega Louie (213-802-1487).
