KOKOON: How you were introduced to KOKOON?

TAMMY: So… it is interesting thinking back on it. Found it online – I wasn’t searching for direct sales, I was searching for cute clothes. I came across KOKOON dresses somehow. I was kind of looking for a new opportunity but wasn’t thinking direct sales. So I ordered KOKOON — 3 dresses — and I loved them! It all happened really quickly – I talked to Laine (KOKOON’s designer) a few days later.

KOKOON:What are your favorite hobbies, activities …etc..?.

TAMMY:Tennis, Yoga, Hiking, Skiing, and Reading – and being a Mom.

KOKOON:One KOKOON piece you can never live without?

TAMMY: I have so many — the cami’s and ultra tees. And this winter, the kanga poncho! A great AZ piece – you never need a coat but you need a sweater.

KOKOON: If you had to describe your own personal style in 3 words…

TAMMY: stylishly casual, and fun

KOKOON: Best part about repping KOKOON? What have you gained since repping KOKOON (besides super cute clothes)?

TAMMY: The cute clothes are a huge positive. But I would say, I think what it did for me was it gave me more confidence in my style. After having 3 babies, you get stuck in “mommyville” and it brought me out of that. It made me stylish again and made me want to care about what I was wearing. It gave me a fun way to do that. And it has given me a great chance to meet some wonderful women and people. But I think the biggest thing is that it has given me more confidence in my style.

KOKOON: Who is your fashion idol? Why?

TAMMY: Currently, Heidi Klum but growing up Cindy Crawford. But I think my mom (was my fashion idol) in a way, she was a very stylish lady and that had a huge impact on me.

KOKOON: Why KOKOON versus other direct sales?

TAMMY: I would say that I had never been interested in direct sales, so I would say that I never even considered a direct sales company. I only sell KOKOON because I love it and I live it. I wear it everyday. There is no way I could sell anything I didn’t love. It is a part of me now. There is not one thing I would consider selling besides KOKOON.

KOKOON: What is your go-to outfit?

TAMMY: Cowboy boots, skinny jeans, and a cute KOKOON sweater.

KOKOON: What is your first “fashion” memory?

TAMMY: I have a few! One that really stands out – I was like 6 years old and I really wanted a pink satin jacket and I bought it with my own money because I wanted it so bad. I had the pants and the jacket.

KOKOON: Worst fashion item ever bought? Best?

TAMMY: The worst – when I was in college, I had those short shorts with the greek letters on the a$$ — I didn’t have the butt for those. Those shorts combined with my t-shirts with my own shoulder pads I would put in them were the worst.

The best – I know! My KOKOON “Audrey” furry sweatshirt. I wear that all the time! It is my go-to statement piece. I get so many compliments.
