MS.MS. Style Portrait: Robin Hilleary
I was taken with both Robin Hilleary‘s beauty and style from the moment I met her. I was in my neighborhood dive and Robin breezed in on the arm of our mutual friend Jen. She wore a wide brimmed felt hat, slouchy blouse and long skirt with a splash of her killer jewelry. So elegant… I was smitten. I was not in the least surprised to find out that Robin is also a stylist, especially after visiting her amazing apartment and nosing around her color coded closet. I hope you enjoy a snapshot of this woman who is so strikingly beautiful, both inside and out.
