This GOTM is no novice when it comes to the fashion world. From Texas to the West coast, she has had her hands in every major fashion group.

Did I mention she is elegant, humble and beautiful?

Most recently, Paula channeled her experience and created GAIA, a socially responsible business where women gain transferable skills to create one-of-a-kind pieces, such as table napkins and bracelets, for a living wage.

Sound familiar? Her stockists include everyone who is anyone- from Forty Five Ten to Haven to Nicholson Hardie.

Always on the move, her outfits have to transfer from a meeting with the owners of Forty Five Ten to diving practice with the kids. She always aims for “Comfort Chic,” although she notes, “I’m afraid that sometimes the Comfort overtakes the Chic!”

She found this slouchy embellished sweater at Topshop- one of her favorite haunts (so happy this well-priced store has made a move into the states). A wardrobe basic, her CoH skinny jeans look London-chic tucked into these new season Ash suede booties.

To accessorize, Paula wears an armful of GAIA wrap bracelets (all new this week at Cabana in Dallas) and a Givenchy clutch that she found on SALE at Barney’s last fall.

She knows, a girl should never pass up a SALE on Givenchy accessories. Ever.

Through a GAIA purchase you are helping to pave the path to self-reliance for women in need in our very own communities. Giving women an opportunity to become financially independent through a living wage truly has a lasting legacy, as it then helps to cultivate a brighter future for their children, and so on.
