WHAT DO YOU LOOK FOR WHEN YOU GO SHOPPING?

Nothing 'normal'. I think people can get trapped in buying the same item over and over again, so I always look for a colour, embellishment, silhouette (etc) that I don't already have!

THE BEST SPOTS FOR SHOPPING IN YOUR CITY
I love a bit of Westfield London. You can go high end to high street and avoid the tourist traffic of places like Oxford Street. I think our markets are incredible, as well. Spitalfields, Camden markets... though I usually find the best vintage garb at What The Butler Wore in Lower Marsh.


WHICH UNIQUE LOCAL FASHION BRANDS DO YOU FANCY?
Gosh - everyone! The talent that rises out of London is second to none. The scarves of Silken Favours are my new 'favourite thing'.


DRINK & DINE IN STYLE
Bond and Brook! Because it is located in Fenwick, you are surrounded by style, and the food is delectable. I could eat there on the daily.
