OLD SCHOOL: Nivea Creme

"I bypass hair products altogether — they are just too drying — and use this rich body cream to tame my locks."

HOLD EVERYTHING: Nancy Gonzalez Handbag

"Most of my bags can multitask and make the switch from day to evening. I'm loving a lot from Nancy Gonzalez's new collection. They're classic with a twist, just like me."

PIN UP: Goody Bobby Pins

"When I'm going out, I like my hair up in a bun, and these do the trick."

XXLUXE: Carolina Herrera Body Lotion

"If I want to take my scent up a notch for evening, I slather this on."

ROYAL FLUSH: Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge in Milk Chocolate

"I apply this with my fingers — it's impossible to mess up and always looks fresh."

MAIS OUI: Royal Bain de Caron Fragrance

"My mom wore Chanel No. 5, which I'll always associate with her. I gravitate toward lighter, 'baby' scents, like this one."

P.M. POUT: Chanel Hydrabase Creme Lipstick in Lotus Rouge

"I go for burgundy lipstick — evening only. During the day, it's too high-maintenance."
