what is your...



  • Favourite shop?

I love rummaging through markets such as Camden and Spitalfields in London.



  • Best bargain buy?

Apart from this jacket, a piece of fine black glove leather for £1 in Spitalfields that I made into a great hat.



  • Biggest splurge?

Well, they were the same price as this bag, but a pair of baby-pink patent, pointy stilettos by Dolce & Gabbana for €400 in Brown Thomas about 10 years ago. I was in college at the time so relatively speaking they seem more expensive.



  • Best and worst dressed style icons?

The best are Audrey Hepburn and Jackie O and the worst are Katie Price and Britney Spears.



  • Favourite label or designer?

Victoria Beckham: I wouldn't be a huge fan of her but her clothes, particularly her dresses are so beautifully made.



  • Monthly spend on clothes?

About €400.



  • Last fashion buy?

Two playsuits in Penneys. One is printed and has long sleeves which is quite unusual but also difficult when going to the bathroom!



  • Biggest fashion mistake?

A green lace dress that the sales lady convinced me to buy, but I don't really like lace.



  • What do you love and hate in fashion?

I love jumpsuits and playsuits and I hate leather-look leggings.
