Meet The Editors: The Lucky Team Shares Their Guilty Pleasures, Earliest Style Memories And More

How many pairs of shoes do you own? It's an ever-changing, endlessly increasing number—like pi.

What's your go-to nail polish color or manicure? I don't have one because I always try to do a new color for each manicure. And then I pass that color on to someone else so that I can spread the nail polish wealth.

What is the oldest item in your closet? A vintage navy wool cape that I bought years ago. I'm pretty sure it was a part of Choate's uniform back in the 1950s. I love it—it even has a hood! It's absolutely perfect—and looks great with skinny jeans and a pair of knee-high boots—but I don’t wear it as much as I would like to because it's really hard to get on and off.

If you could only shop at one store (or from one brand) for the rest of your life, what would it be and why? My cheat answer is Barneys, because they carry 3.1 Phillip Lim, Proenza Schouler, and Chanel shoes, which satisfies my every need.

If you were stranded on a desert island, what three beauty products would you take along? Peter Thomas Roth sunscreen, a visor and an Evian spray—for both cooling and hydration.

Finish this sentence: "I can never own enough _____." Books.
