FS: This is your first trip to Napa; what did you pack for your weekend in wine country?
WP: I didn't know if the wineries had dress codes or anything, so I had no idea what to bring! I ended up packing one pair of jeans, a couple of dresses, and a few t-shirts to mix and match.
FS: What pieces are you coveting for Fall? I feel like you might have a pretty solid shopping list.
WP: Actually, I'm going on a shopping strike! I just moved into a new place and organized my closet, and I realized that I really shouldn't buy anything else — I literally have stuff with tags still attached — so I'm just going to revamp my existing pieces for Fall. I really gravitated towards the menswear looks that were on the runways; I love a pantsuit, and I'm going to try kitten heels, too.
FS: Love your practicality! So when you do shop, what do you typically splurge on? Where do you prefer to save?
WP: I mostly splurge on bags and shoes, because I know I'll wear them forever. And honestly, I kind of try to save on everything! Since I've started designing I've realized just how much it costs to make clothes, and I have become pretty frugal when buying new things.
