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?
- 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.
