First Fashion Memory
 
It has to be the first moment my mum brought me to the bead shop. All I remember is being surrounded by old drawers full of colourful beads. She gave me 150 pesetas (€1) and set me free! From that moment on, I was hooked.
 

Favourite Designer Label
 
Josep Font, the Catalan designer. His clothes are playful, classical and utterly feminine. I’d love to collaborate with him. Some day!
 
Best Bargain Buy
 
A €2 leather vintage bag I bought in a street market in Frankfurt 7 years ago. I also managed to get a vintage cameo there for only 50 cents. It's still the bag most asked about.
 
Most Expensive Item in your Wardrobe
 
I'm a bargain shopper so my wardrobe is quite cheap. However, a €210 pale pink leather pair of Chie Mihara shoes managed to get into it. That’s as expensive as it gets for me.
 
Most Stylist Moment
 
It'll happen yet.
 
Style Icon
 
This is difficult one. No one jumps out, but I do admire Kirsten Dunst's style
 
Favourite High-Street Store
 
I'm Spanish. It's obviously Zara. Their principle of changing the stock frequently regardless of the popularity of the items means you're not going to meet the dress you're wearing at the same party on a nicer body.

Finally, what did you have for breakfast this morning!?
 
2 pieces of toast covered with extra virgin olive oil sprinkled with salt and a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice.
