ridgé interviews talented individuals who she features in her LMH magazine.

What has been your biggest fashion faux-pas?
A DRESS I PURCHASED FROM BLOOMINGDALES THAT HAD IN BEEN IN MY CLOSET FOR OVER THREE YEARS. I DECIDED TO WEAR IT FOR A INTERVIEW I WAS DOING WITH AN EMERGING DESIGNER. DURING THE INTERVIEW THE LEATHER STRAP BROKE. I DIDN'T HAVE A JANET JACKSON MOMENT BUT IT WAS CLOSE.
If you could only shop at one store, which would it be?
If you could change one thing about your closet, what would it be?
I NEED MORE SHOE SPACE. I HAVE OVER 150 PAIRS OF SHOES AND I DON'T HAVE ENOUGH ROOM FOR THEM.
Survival of the fittest: What is one item in your closet that you will never get rid of?
I LIKE TO MIX AND MATCH CLOTHING/FASHIONS. I HAVE CLOTHING IN MY CLOSET THAT'S OVER 25 YEARS OLD. I BELIEVE BECAUSE I DON'T KEEP UP WITH THE CURRENT IN FASHION STYLE, THROWING THINGS AWAY IS NOT A OPTION. IN MY CLOSET EVERY THING IS ALWAYS IN FASHION.
If you were given the opportunity to have a famous designer revamp your entire wardrobe, who would you choose?
I SHOP FROM NEIMAN MARCUS TO THRIFT STORES. I SEE SOMETHING I LIKE I BUY IT. I LOVE TO FIND CLOTHING THAT WORKS WELL WITH THE JEWELRY I DESIGN.OR I MAY BUY A DRESS AND HAVE IT REDESIGNED. THESE I CALL MS. BRIDGé. WHEN I WAS IN HIGH SCHOOL I TOOK A SEWING CLASS AND STARTED MAKING MY OWN DESIGNS. THE ADJECTIVE MY FRIENDS AND TEACHERS USED TO DESCRIBE MY DESIGNS.UNIQUE. I THINK THEY WERE JUST BEING NICE. LOL
Name an actor/singer/celebrity whose wardrobe you admire the most.
I REALLY DON'T KEEP UP WITH ACTOR/SINGER/CELEBRITY FASHIONS.
What are your best and worst fashion purchases?
MY FAVORITE STORE FOR FINDING DRESSES IS NEIMAN MARCUS AND BELIEVE IT OR NOT
NEWPORT NEWS. THE WORST I WOULD HAVE TO SAY WAS A PURCHASE I MADE FROM SAKS FIFTH AVENUE. I BOUGHT TWO DRESSES THAT DIDN'T WORK OUT. I PUT THEM ASIDE AND FORGOT TO RETURN THEM. SEVEN MONTHS LATER I CAME ACROSS THEM AND IT WAS TOO LATE TO SEND THEM BACK. I STILL HAVE THOSE DRESSES. I KEEP THINKING OF WAYS TO REDESIGN THEM BUT NOTHING HAS COME TO MIND YET.
Who makes your favorite pair of jeans? Shoes? Dress or Suit?
J.COMPANY, A POCKET AND AN ITALIAN DESIGNER, XPENSIVE JEANS. WHEN I LIVED IN ROME I WENT CRAZY BUYING HIS JEANS. THE DESINGS ARE VERY UNIQUE. SHOES? MY CLOSET IS FULL OF DONALD PLINER AND VIA SPIGA, COLE HANN, STUART WEITZMAN. I THINK I SHOULD MENTION SHOES AND PURSES I ONLY BUY FROM NEIMAN MARCUS, SAKS, NORDSTROM, BLOOMIGDALES. DRESS? MY DRESSES I BUY FROM NEIMAN MARCUS AND BLOOMINGDALES. I DON'T PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO THE DESIGNER. IF THE DRESS IS UNIQUE OR I CAN REDESIGN IT AND MAKE IT UNIQUE I BUY IT.
If you had to describe your personal style in one word, what would it be?
NOT YOUR TRADITIONAL GIRL.
If you could bring back any fashion trend, what would it be?
AFROS AND WIDE LEGGED JEANS
