Ever been intrigued to see what your favourite Inflencers have in their wardrobes? Want to know where they like to shop, what their favourite items are and discover their most treasured accessories? This new Series of mine lets us discover the truth behind the style, the old clobber among the new and reveal the stories within the wardrobe.
TELL US ABOUT YOU? I’m a full time mummy to an almost 2yr old. Would describe myself as creative, chaotic and busy minded at the best of times!
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE? My style when it comes to fashion is completely driven by mood and not ‘what’s out there!’ I’m a mix match old New bush bash bosh kind of girl. Some days it’s all colours and patterns and others I’m all about the grey tones!
WHO OR WHAT INSPIRES YOU? My mood and the weather!!!
DESCRIBE THE CURRENT STATE OF YOUR WARDROBE! I’ve not actually used a wardrobe for as long as I can remember – I have two drawers which are currently stuffed to the brim with all garments. No order no organisation unlike my husband who uses drawers for neatly folded items and a wardrobe to avoid creasing.
WHAT’S YOUR MOST RECENT FASHION PURCHASE? I’ve recently returned from Thailand with a bag full of bright coloured sarongs that double up as my new favourite ‘London scarves’…. my current style is hippy hits acid – patterns and colours that pop!!!
IS THERE A TREND YOU’RE LOVING RIGHT NOW? I love mixing things up so not really. Probably COLOUR!
OLDEST ITEM IN YOUR WARDROBE YOU CAN’T SEEM TO PART WITH? I have a long pink pleated skirt that I’ve had for 10yrs and honestly I still happily wear that bad boy in every season.
ANY FASHION FAILS YOU’VE MADE? I’ve had many but only from other people’s judgement- I’m pretty much happy with looking back at old photos and thinking ‘yeah that’s me!’
IS THERE A PARTICULAR COLOUR YOU’RE DRAWN TO? Drawn to turquoise as it reminds me of the bluest most calm oceans of Asia
FAVOURITE HIGH STREET BRAND AND WHY? I’m a sucker for Zara… their clothes seem to fit my 5’2 boy frame perfectly well and always have done- team these items up with my golden oldies and I’m ready for the day!
MOST TREASURED ACCESSORY YOU CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT? My Amex….oh and Child!
HAS YOUR STYLE DIFFERED FROM PRE TO POST MOTHERHOOD? I think my style is the same, if maybe a little baggier.
WHAT MESSAGE WILL YOU BE GIVING (or do you already) TO YOUR CHILDREN ABOUT STYLE AND BODY CONFIDENCE? Having a daughter I will most certainly encourage confidence in all she does whether it’s body confidence or the confidence to wear whatever the f**k she wants! It’s all about freedom fun and funk!
QUICK FIRE QUESTIONS:
LEOPARD OR STRIPE? Leopard
SECOND HAND OR DOUBLE CLICK? Double click
HEELS OR FLATS? Heels
STATEMENT EARRINGS OR NECKLACE? Necklace
HOARDER OR CLEARER? Clearer
