How would you describe your style?

Thrifty, eclectic, colourful

What's your favourite piece in your wardrobe?

Probably a Karen Millen coat with big fluffy collar, which is around 20 years old

Who are your style icons?

I've always admired Gwen Stefani's style

Do you have any favourite designers?

I admire Jean Paul Gaultier's work

Where are your favourite places to shop for new clothes?

I rarely shop new, but I did buy a pair of boots recently from Elk; an Australian family owned and operated business with a strong ethical foundation.

Do you make or customise your outfits?

I like to mix it up a bit and mix thrifted clothes with a few customised / refashioned pieces I've done myself

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

If you think you've got an idea to refashion an old piece, go for it. Most of the time, you won't wear that item of clothing as it is anyway, so it's best to try and get some wear out of it. Life is too short to wear boring clothes.
