When Real Simple called and asked to schedule a full-day photoshoot of our family and home, I was elated, nervous and entirely sure I needed DB to come over immediately. I’d had the pleasure of working with Debra at Facebook, and knew her as an impeccably styled, confident leader. Her ability to know the individuals on her team and enable them to present their best self was her trademark. With a national stage ahead of us, I knew she would understand my vision for the shoot, elevate it in a way that only Deb can, and execute flawlessly.

I was so thrilled when Deb agreed to help us, and said she was available for a wardrobe consultation the very next day. On her arrival DB interviewed us about personal style and how we wanted to show up, she made on-point suggestions for elevating our looks and we began to pull potential outfits.
Within a two hour window, we had looks for all four family members selected and they were just perfect. Knowing no look is complete without hair, make up and accessories, DB created and shared a Pinterest board with me of her recommendations to complete my look. I was thrilled and shared the board with the stylists the morning of the shoot so they could execute our shared vision. When the stylists of Real Simple arrived on ‘set’, they were so happy with the looks we had picked and they didn’t change a thing. I felt so fortunate and grateful to have been able to work with Debra for this piece; she is an icon of style and the most wonderful person you’ll ever meet.
