what is your...

  • Favourite shop?

Second-hand shops wherever I find myself.

  • Best bargain buy?

A 1940s-style, black envelope clutch with a gold clasp for €5 from a charity shop.

  • Biggest splurge?

A black swing coat for £100 with a gold, green and raspberry pink floral print from a shop in London.

  • Best and worst dressed style icons?

The best are Alexa Chung and Dot from EastEnders -- she had the best scarves and handbags. And the worst are Jordan and Cheryl Cole -- she's so mundane.

  • Favourite label or designer?

Chloe and Prada.

  • Monthly spend on clothes?

€30 and that's a good month!

  • Last fashion buy?

Buying second-hand clothes that I thought I could alter but it didn't work well, in particular a pleated floral dress.

  • What do you love and hate in fashion?

I love how you can always put your own stamp on any item and also the quality of vintage fashion. I hate the nautical look that comes out every single summer.
