How would you describe your style?

I would defined my style as casual and relaxed.

What's your favourite piece in your wardrobe?

Any of my hand made items, which have started to become more than what I actually buy. Absolute favorite probably Silk de Crepe handmade Tap Shorts in blush

Who are your style icons?

Brigitte Bardot, Little Edie, and Audrey Hepburn

Do you have any favourite designers?

I really admire 1950's Dior and 1920's Lanvin. Balencianga's tailored look as well as Oscar De La Renta

Where are your favourite places to shop for new clothes?

2 years ago I started a challenge where I would not buy any ready to wear garments. I'm surprised I have not broken down and bought anything. I used to love shopping at Zara and thrift stores. Now I live to shop at Mood Fabrics or online at Girl Charlie

Do you make or customise your outfits?

Everything I wear is basically handmade with the exception of RTW things I have in my closet.

Do you have any great tips for mixing up and personalising an outfit?

Figure out your style and what works best on your body type. Every body type is different and once you are aware of that and select clothes that work for you, you will look and feel like a totally different person.
