WHAT IS YOUR...



  • Favourite shop?

TK Maxx, I go to the one in the Stephen's Green Centre.



  • Best bargain buy?

Apart from this cape, a loose black chiffon shirt with gold dots and a ruffled front by Dolce & Gabbana reduced from €300 to €19 in TK Maxx.



  • Biggest splurge?

A pair of beige suede, knee-high, flat boots with studding at the top by Miu Miu for €220 in Brown Thomas. But they were a bargain too because they were originally €670.



  • Best and worst dressed style icons?

The best is Jennifer Aniston and the worst is Katie Perry.



  • Favourite label or designer?

Valentino at the moment.



  • Monthly spend on clothes?

About €50.



  • Last fashion buy?

A white, V-neck T-shirt in Reiss because I had to redeem a voucher.



  • Biggest fashion mistake?

Trusting the mirrors in small fitting rooms and then coming home and thinking 'shock horror!'



  • What do you love and hate in fashion?

I adore the Valentino studded kitten heels in any colour and I hate the McQueen alien boots.
