It's not every day a girl gets asked to model thigh highs. I never once thought I had nice legs, didn't give it too much thought, until I was in Boston this summer. I was there to give a pair of Red Sox tickets away after the bombing. I wanted to do something to give back. While there I met the founder of www.viennemilano.com. Vienne had followed me via Twitter because I was working promoting a sports radio show in Vegas, and one of the models who worked with her is a huge hockey fan, and we had connected as a result of mutual passion for sports. Well the following a copy of my interview with Vienne, and what appeared on their site during the time I was promoting their line. I'm sharing here just so you can see the amazing power of social media marketing. Very often, one thing leads to another. [ Note the interview says I'm 'from Vegas' and while I work to promote sports radio shows that are broadcast locally in Vegas, and it is my home away from home, I am not from there originally. I grew up in North Jersey, and made my home in New York City for years. I now spend my time traveling back and fourth from Vegas and the East Coast, and hopefully someday everywhere in between. ]

How did you begin modeling?
My first encounter with modeling began when I was asked to participate in a study for "Working Women Verses Stay At Home Women". Since I took part in the study, I was given a chance to model for Marie Claire. I was also asked to model for VienneMilano by their Founder.
Tell us about your modeling career
Although I am not a professional model, I do enjoy it. This is why I model for the businesses that I work with and believe in. My dream is to launch www.mondaynightfantasy.com – And who knows? You might find me modeling there very soon.
What is your style in fashion?
I am the most comfortable in heels or Cowboy boots. I never know what to do with just a pair of sneakers! I love to wear flats for a baseball game or a stroll in Manhattan, but my passion will always be “Forever In Bluejeans”. I also love sporting my Chanel suit. My favorite shop is Michael's Consignment in NYC. I also love Walter Bakerleather jackets...even in the 115 degree heat in Vegas!
What's your relations to thigh highs?
Super sexy, I love them! I think white hosiery is appropriate for weddings, the black for the office and the purple for Las Vegas (which is where I’m from)! I am in love with VienneMilano luxury thigh highs. They are very chic, and I think their hosiery redefines sexy. It's not that I don't love bare legs, but there is something about luxury thigh highs that gives a lady a sense of style.
The sassiest thing you did while wearing thigh highs is...
What was your experience working with VienneMilano?
I really enjoy working with VienneMilano. I was introduced to VienneMilano via twitter by Megan Louise. After getting to know the brand for almost a year, I finally got a chance to work with them. I found Vienne to be more than the woman I had come to know.
