Zara and Mango.

A pair of red patent, square-toe heels reduced from £70 to £17 from Office.

  • Favourite label or designer?

Alexander McQueen.



  • Monthly spend on clothes?

Up to €600.



  • Last fashion buy?

This hat.



  • Biggest fashion mistake?

I don't think I really have any because I consider my choices very carefully.



  • What do you love and hate in fashion?

I love a mix of vintage with new pieces and I hate when everyone buys into something and has no sense of themselves, like the current obsession with Louboutins.
