Hometown: Cedar Rapids, IA
Style Icon: My Grandma Blanche.
I don't have a picture of my grandma here, which is unfortunate, because she was gorgeous back in her day. She had deep red curls and was always dressed really well---- a very classic, classy lady. She would wear maybe a black cashmere cardigan with some pearls and nice pants (you know, the 50's style). She would also be a bit daring at times; for example, wearing a backless dress to my dad's second wedding. Perfect rain boots and rain coats and umbrellas...bright pink lipstick (like what's hot right now :-).
(***author's note: we love Sam's description of her Grandma Blanche, and are also bummed there is no pic of this chic lady!)
Favorite Color: Navy Blue
Spirit Animal: Swan
Signature Accessory: My gold wedding ring
What do you Love About Iowa City: Strong community and music scene, and the amount of unique local businesses.
Dogs or Cats: Cats
Favorite TV Show: Portlandia & Storage Wars
Favorite Drink/Cocktail: A nice-tasting ale or red wine (also nice-tasting). I think Bell's Two Hearted Ale is good.

How would you describe your style? Simple? No...classic.
