July 12, 2012
What are you wearing and where is it from?
Today I am wearing floral trousers from Dotti, a basic long sleeve top from Country Road, Asos mint green shoes and an Yves Saint Laurent arty ring in pink!
What's your favourite local store and why?
I don’t have one favourite shop but I love the Queen Victoria Building! It reminds me of my childhood when my great aunt (the most fashionable lady I know) used to take me shopping and spoil me rotten. I also love the variety of shops there, you can always find something whatever your mood.
What do you love about fashion?
Everything! It’s too hard to narrow down one thing I love about fashion but I guess I love the confidence a great outfit or pair of shoes gives me.
What trends are you coveting at right now?
Recently my favourite trend has been coloured jeans and printed trousers/ leggings. I love playing with simple clothing and experimenting with colours, prints and accessories.
What was the highlight of your week at SHOP?
Helping the features team research DIYs! I love up-cycling my older clothes, not only is it fun but it helps create a more sustainable future for fashion.
What surprised you most about life at a glossy magazine?
How close-knit and friendly the team is. Everyone is lovely and willing to lend a hand and there were no The Devil Wears Prada moments.
What did you learn in your week at SHOP?
I learned that working in a magazine is the career path I want to take.
