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?
- 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.
