Wednesday’s Wardrobe Presents….
TELL US ABOUT YOU? I’m an Essex mama to three ridiculously cool Sons. Fashion designer. Full-time dreamer.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE? Comfy, I love mixing prints and wearing fluffy jackets. Skinny jeans a vintage tee, cool ankle boots are my daily uniform.
WHO OR WHAT INSPIRES YOU? I’m incredibly inspired by street style I could watch people walk by for hours.The 70s is where I get a lot of my vibe from.
DESCRIBE THE CURRENT STATE OF YOUR WARDROBE! Majorly fluffy. Incredibly sassy. I have an open closet, i love seeing all my clothes out and just hanging with my best friend trying on outfits and dancing around with a disco ball!
WHAT’S YOUR MOST RECENT FASHION PURCHASE? Some Gucci slides, an Anine Bing tee. Anine Bing is one of my favourite designers, her journey is incredibly inspiring. A true example of how badass us women are.
IS THERE A TREND YOU’RE LOVING RIGHT NOW? The white ankle boot. Being an Essex girl I’ve had to be careful to not be a walking cliche. Unfortunately i am. This S/S sees the approval of white footwear
OLDEST ITEM IN YOUR WARDROBE YOU CAN’T SEEM TO PART WITH? A leather jacket, had it since I was 21. It’s been on some truly epic adventures, I will never part with it. I still live in it now.
ANY FASHION FAILS YOU’VE MADE? Anything crop top and mini skirt related wasn’t my finest fashion moments.
IS THERE A PARTICULAR COLOUR YOU’RE DRAWN TO? I love colour it really lifts my mood. Blue is my current favourite but I do tend to go all in then get board and switch. I also go though stages of wearing a lot of black, or all white.
FAVOURITE HIGH STREET BRAND AND WHY? Topshop, I don’t shop on the high street very often anymore but if I do I’m guaranteed to pick up something in there. Since starting my own clothing brand I’ve become very aware of what goes on behind the scene and the true journey of mass produced clothing. This has helped me spend better. I was a nightmare with buying without really thinking if I actually need it.
MOST TREASURED ACCESSORY YOU CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT? My earrings that I got from Ibiza. Love them!
HAS YOUR STYLE DIFFERED FROM PRE TO POST MOTHERHOOD? No, I’ve always been a jeans and tee shirt girl. I think you can be comfy and still look effortlessly cool.
WHAT MESSAGE WILL YOU BE GIVING (or do you already) TO YOUR CHILDREN ABOUT STYLE AND BODY CONFIDENCE? Come as you are. No one is you and that is your super power.
QUICK FIRE QUESTIONS:
LEOPARD OR STRIPE? Leopard!! Leopard!! And Leopard!!
SECOND HAND OR DOUBLE CLICK? A bit of both.
HEELS OR FLATS? Flats
STATEMENT EARRINGS OR NECKLACE? Earings
HOARDER OR CLEARER? Clearer, I go through my closet every season and get organised.
