First Fashion Memory 

Dressing up in my mum's gold lamé dinner jacket, with her lamé onesie when I was three! 

Favourite Designer Label 

I adore Balenciaga especially this season with all the draping and shoulder pads, I get  very excited about seeing what Nicolas Ghesquiere is going to do next! Altough I can't stand Jennifer Connolly and can't really understand why they use her in their campaigns! 

Best Bargain Buy

A pair of green snakeskin Gina shoes from the 80's that I got in a second hand store in Shoreditch for £40 

Most Expensive Item in your Wardrobe

I've very few expensive items but it's probably a teal sequin jacket I picked up on holidays one year or a fur Joseph gilet, I bought in Brown Thomas with my first styling pay cheque, although I'm off to New York next week so I might have a different answer in a couple of weeks! 

Top of your Wish List 

Chloé over the knee flat boots, a Chloé sheepskin coat and anything from the Balenciaga collection! 

Most Stylist Moment 

Can't say I've had too many of those! Probably the night of my sister's 30th/engagement party. I wore a pistachio green Poltock and Walsh dress from Circus, I never wanted to take it off! 

Style Icon 

So many, I love Kate Bosworth, Diane Kruger and Alexa Chung, but I also love women in music like Natasha Kahn, Alison Mosshart and Roisin Murphy. 

Favourite High Street Store  

Topshop or Urban Outfitters

Fashion or Style

Someone can be stylish but not fashionable, it's how you wear things that count not what you're wearing.  

Finally, what did you have for breakfast this morning!? 

HA! A full Irish, after nearly two weeks in Croatia I've been craving a superquinn sausie and some Denny rashers, it didn't dissappoint!
