Meet Daf

What is your greatest extravagance?


Traveling, without a doubt.


What or who is the greatest love of your life? 


I’d have to say traveling.  Do you see a pattern here?


Which talent would you most like to have? 


I’d love to be able to fly so I’d never had to be in a car again.


If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be? 

My obsession with frozen yogurt but I’m OK with not being perfect in an imperfect world.


Who has been the biggest influence on your career?

My husband.  He pushes me whether I like it or not and I love him for this.


What do you miss most about being a kid?


Seeing my friends all the time.


What do you regret not doing or starting when you were younger? 

I wish I’d started taking violin lessons at a young age.  I take lessons now and it is very difficult to put the time in!  


What is the most spontaneous thing you've ever done?

The most spontaneous thing I’ve ever done would have to be nothing - I’m too responsible.


What's the title of the current chapter of your life?


Keep going.


What inspired the name, Colette? 


Colette is a traditional French name that I’ve always loved.  

It also happens to be the name of a pretty cool historical figure who was recently featured in a movie.


What’s the most interesting thing you’ve read or seen this week? 


I read a lot of fashion websites and I recently subscribed to “Master Class” and am now watching Anna Wintour’s lesson on how and why she chose certain Vogue covers.  Her thought process is complex and very encompassing.  


If you could time travel, when would you go and where? 


 I’d travel to the next prom season to see what is hot.


If you were stranded on an island, what are the three most important things that you think you would need? 


Frozen yogurt, beer and sun block.


Where is your favorite vacation spot/ spot to visit?  


Paris, of course. :)


What is your favorite color? 


RED - I love the energy that it evokes.


Favorite city? 


 Can I answer Paris twice?


Favorite food? 


 Can I answer frozen yogurt three times?


All-time favorite movie?  


I love, love, LOVE movies so answering one is really hard, but if I have to then I would say Paris Je T'aime which has a little of everything - fashion, romance, sci-fi - and it’s set in the most beautiful city in the world, Paris.


Top 5 songs? 


I love music so this is tough.  Without thinking about it too much, I’d say “Do My Thang” by Miley Cyrus, “Freedom” by George Michaels, “Vogue” by Madonna, “Feeling Good” by Nina Simone and “Kiss” by Prince - I’m an 80’s girl. :)


Lunch or Dinner?  


Definitely dinner. A late dinner. I usually work late so I eat late.


Movies or concerts?  


Definitely movies.  It’s hard to eat popcorn at a concert.
