Socialite Tinsley Mortimer has been on a nationwide book tour promoting her novel Southern Charm about a Charleston girl who moves to NYC.

Hear what she had to say, then shop the widget below to nail Tinsley's flirty look.
CelebStyle: How would you describe your personal style?
Tinsley Mortimer: I'm a girlie girl. I love to wear very girlie, overly feminine stuff. I love to wear dresses. I love anything that has ruffles and bows. And I love to wear color. Southern girls love color. When I moved to New York, everyone was not much makeup and very black; it looked cool, but I just can't pull that off. I am better with curled hair and makeup and color and dresses. It's just more fun.
CS: Who are your favorite designers?
TM: For evening I love Oscar de la Renta and Carolina Herrera. There's this new designer I keep wearing to events, his name is Rafael Cennamo. It's gorgeous dresses. Marchesa I love, Versace, Valentino. I also love Alice + Olivia, Trina Turk, Tibi, Milly and all those, too.
