What piece of clothing in your closet tells a story? I kept the top I wore the night I met my husband at a rave in San Francisco in 1999: A green tank top by the brand Velvet. I don’t wear it anymore, but it’s hanging in my closet because it still sparks joy.
What piece of clothing in your closet tells a story? My silk dress. I bought it about a year after having my second baby. It felt good to splurge on something that made me feel pretty.
Favorite Kris Nations piece: Chill Pill Necklace. My go-to daily reminder. No matter what is going on, it's best to take it all in and remain chill.

What piece of clothing in your closet has meaning? My tea length pencil skirt has a traditional feminine silhouette, but the fabric, colors and pattern make it a bit tougher and slightly off balance. That’s my style: Tough femininity.
What piece of clothing has meaning? I love plaid. Plaid shoes, plaid pants, plaid jackets, plaid flannels, plaid scarves...you get the idea. Growing up, I was decked out in plaid. I think that’s why it gives me a certain comfort. Plaid is rad and will always be a staple in my closet.

Favorite Kris Nations piece: My favorite KN piece is the Roll with the Punches hoops, because, well, HOOPS(!), and a reminder to stay cool when the going gets tough.

Black Faux Fur Bolero. I added this piece to my closet in the Fall of 2019. It was the last wedding my husband and I attended before the pandemic and was such a fun weekend getaway! Before the wedding my friend and I scoured the mall to find the perfect Fur Coat for the evening. When we finally found it, we ended up buying the exact same one and both wore them to the wedding. It's always so fun to get dolled up and this piece was the icing on the cake for me. It will forever remind me of this wonderful event with friends before we were all confined to a year of separation. Such a classic piece I will cherish forever.
Favorite Kris Nations piece: Favorite Kris Nations piece is my Ray of f..ing Sunshine Necklace in Gold. LOVE this piece! The Wave and sun detail remind me of my wonderful hometown of Half Moon Bay! Also a gentle reminder to be that F..ing ray of Sunshine :)

What piece of clothing in your closet has meaning? My mom’s London Fog raincoat. I don’t wear it often because it comes down to my ankles — but I can't get rid of it. Favorite Kris Nations piece:“Ray of Sunshine” necklace. Because I’m a f*king ray of sunshine.

What piece of clothing in your closet has meaning? My leather jacket that I got five years ago. It was the last one in the store and luckily it was in my size. I tried it on, loved it, but I thought it was too expensive. A month later it was still there and on sale. I got it and it has been my favorite jacket ever since.
