1. What is the one item in your wardrobe you could never live without?
I couldn’t live without a dress. I have so many of them in my wardrobe. I love how they can be worn in the summer with some cute wedges or little sandals then changed up by styling with thigh high boots and tights in the winter.
2. Who is your style icon?
I met my ultimate fashion icon Olivia Palermo in 2015 when she came to Dublin to launch the CIATE makeup line and it was a pleasure to meet her and speak to her. She even gave me some advice. In saying that, for me inspiration is all around on a daily basis. I enjoy choosing clothes according to my surroundings or environments. I’m also following Miroslava Duma, a successful Russian writer and entrepreneur. Her style is feminine, flattering and classy. I also adore Olivia Culpo, an American actress and model. I want her wardrobe in my life!
3. What is your current favourite trend?
Oh this is a tough one. I love following lots of trends but if I had to pick it would be anything floral from jumpsuits to little coordinates. A floral pattern is always striking! I also loving gingham or bell sleeves at the moment.
4. What would you never be caught wearing?
I would consider myself quite adventurous when it comes to trying out new styles and trends, however, I don’t like things that are mismatched like dressy and casual. I like things to flow. I’m also not a huge fan of embroidered jeans or short, tight fitting dresses but that’s my own personal style.
5. What past style moment of yours makes you cringe the most?
I wore a H&M studio piece to the Dublin Fashion Festival in 2015. It was a bright orange tunic dress with a high neckline and I look back now and wonder what the hell I was thinking! Especially as it was marketed as a shirt!
6. What is the most prominent colour in your wardrobe?
I’m a real girly girl so it’s definitely pink. I’m always drawn to pinks, reds and corals when I’m shopping.
