Tell us the story behind your favorite wardrobe item
Angela: This love necklace that my boyfriend got me, I wear it all the time and I know my love is always close to my heart.
What's your most memorable 'panic moment'?
Angela: I had 600k worth of diamonds on me from a pull for my client for the Oscars and my car just happened to break down on my way to my clients house for a fitting. On top of it, my phone was dead so I couldn't even call or message anyone. I was so freaked out, I had to grab the bag that the diamonds were in and put in my purse and hold so close to my body. No one knew I had them but I couldn't help but think OMG, I have over half a million in my hands.
How did you recover from it gracefully?
Angela: Luckily my friend lived a couple of blocks away so I walked to her house and called a tow truck. Then I was off to my fitting which was a success.
What is your favorite era for fashion?
Angela: Without a doubt the 60's! I love the 60's I mean my favorite thing in the world was invented and that was the mini skirt! Thank you Mary Quant :-) The false eyelashes, bell bottoms, crazy prints, go go boots, mixed prints, and the ladies of the 60's like Brigitte Bardot, Jane Birkin and Donyale Luna love!
What was your big break?
Angela: I never felt there was a so called "big break" but there was a point when I was on a shoot and I was going thru these amazing racks of clothes, shoes and jewelry that I pulled and I was so grateful that I was getting to live my dream and do what I love for a living. That was an amazing moment!
Whose closet would you most like to raid?
Angela: How can I pick just one? Cher's would be amazing, Diane Von Furstenburg's vintage would be to die for, Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, Erin Wasson, Gwen Stefani, Dree Hemingway and my guilty pleasure would be Beyonce.
