Q. What first sparked your love for fashion?
I've always loved getting dressed and putting my outfits together. My mum said I was a fussy child and would get upset if I spilled something on my clothes so I'd want to get changed into a new outfit haha.
Q. How would you describe your personal style?
I'm very classic, I rarely incorporate trends into my wardrobe but if I do it's usually the high street brands where I don't spend a lot of money on them.
Q. Is there anyone you would like to swap wardrobes with?
Olivia Palermo- that girl has an enviable Dior collection.
Q. What are your wardrobe staples?
My black Balmain blazer it is perfectly tailored, Joseph leather pants, black Christian Louboutin pumps, my Chanel boy bag and a white basic tee.
Q. What was your most recent purchase?
Black Acne Jeans and Jimmy Choo sneakers.
Q. What is your favourite shopping destination?
I don't like shopping! I have investment pieces I know will last the distance so I buy these online or if I have an overseas trip coming up and the dollar makes it worthwhile I'll get it from the store overseas.
Q. Who is your go to style inspiration?
Q. What does a normal day look like for you?
I'm up at 7am I have a cup of tea and eat berries for breakfast before I race off to the office. I start with emails, there are usually a few phone calls and then I research and read up on what's happening in the world of Fashion and Travel. I usually have a photo shoot twice a week and then meet friends for lunch afterwards. There's always a blog post in draft process or photos that need editing so this is usually done in the afternoon. There's usually a dinner party or events on most nights so I look forward to nights at home on the couch as they are rare. I don't go to the gym as I prefer to be outdoors so I walk 3kms a day and bike ride on weekends if there's time (lately there hasn't been time).
