My style: Lauren Allen (25)

I started Paper Vines as a way of documenting the things I love; crafts, DIY tutorials and interior design. It's a great creative outlet.

I take inspiration from blogs such as The Sweetest Occasion and Cupcakes and Cashmere as well as from my mum who's a painter. Growing up, I would spend weekends making jewellery and visiting craft fairs with her.

My biggest style influencers are Olivia Palermo, Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly. My own style is current with a '50s feminine twist.

I'm naturally curvy so I tend to focus on choosing outfits that suit my shape; a-line dresses layered with a leather jacket or blazer and a bold necklace. Here I'm wearing Warehouse and H&M. I also like to match my outfits with a strong lip colour and can't live without my Chanel Rouge lipstick in Passion.
