what is your...
- Favourite shop?
Allan & Suzi, a vintage store on Amsterdam Ave in New York.
- Bargain buy?
A whopper sequin jacket for €20 on eBay. I call it my 'tropical slut' jacket. It's really bright and multicoloured.
- Biggest splurge?
I'd rather not say the price but my most expensive would be a brown leather tote with a cross-body strap by Burberry Prorsum.
- Best and worst dressed style icons?
The best is Nicki Minaj. The worst is Britney, but leave her alone.
- Favourite label or designer?
- Monthly spend on clothes?
- Last fashion buy?
A T-shirt by Christopher Shannon from Selfridges in London. It's made up of white, navy, yellow and pearl layered panels.
- Biggest fashion mistake?
I was a Goth for two weeks when 'Frozen' came out.
- What do you love and hate in fashion?
I love how fashion gives people the opportunity to play dress-up every day and I hate how much things cost.
