How would you describe your style?

I think quirky is the word!

What's your favourite piece in your wardrobe?

A blue and white dress that I upcycled with LED lights. It's a head turner when I go out!

Who are your style icons?

I love Livia Firth - she shows how wearing sustainable fashion can be done!

Do you have any favourite designers?

I love Christopher Raeburn and Orsola de Castro. They give me inspiration and motivation to upcycle my clothes. I also admire Zac Posen - he does wonders with textiles.

Where are your favourite places to shop for new clothes?

I don't have a favourite shop - I usually go to thrift shops but only when I need to. Otherwise, I swop or upcycle my existing wardrobe.

Do you make or customise your outfits?

I upcycle my clothes. I love using various techniques to transform old clothes into something new or more wearable.

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

You don't have to be matchy matchy, and you don't have to follow trends. Just be yourself!

Which other fashion blogs do you love to read?

Recycledfashion, and A Pair and A Spare are great reads.
