1. Describe your personal style in 3 words
Creative, Classic and Comfortable
2. What is your favourite item in your wardrobe?
At the moment I am all about the vest! Such a great way to add interest to an outfit.
3. Shoes or Handbags?
This is tough! I think I’m gonna say…bag.
4. What do you love to wear on a night out without kids?
If I can escape the kids for a night I am all about sass and sparkle. Heels and sequins all the way!
5. What has been one of your most recent ‘fashion fails’?
I tried to embrace the boyfriend jean but with zero butt I ended up looking so ridiclous from behind that I did the world a favour and sent them to the local op-shop for some other fashion loving babe to enjoy.
6. Accessories: Less or More?
MOOOOOOORRRRREEEEEEE!!! Bigger is better in my world.
7. What’s on your Wish List for this season?
Hats, hats and more hats. I just can’t get enough stuff to put on my head.
8. Shoes: Heels or flats?
Unfortunately flats. I would love to do heels but the demands of motherhood force my feet into flats.
9. Favourite designer?
I love the classic aesthetic of Chanel but also adore the wild, punk attitude of Vivenne Westwood.
10. What is your go to ‘Mum-On Duty’ outfit?
Denim all the way! A denim skirt or jeans makes mum life so simple and effortless.
11. What are you favourite ‘Affordable Fashion’ buys?
I am addicted to Kmart for simple affordable basics. Then I top up the cool factor with cheap thrills from Sportsgirl, Cotton On and Dotti.
12. Where do you like to shop for your kids?
My kids live in K-mart! The clothes are sooooooo cute and fashionable. The big bonus- my kids love wearing them!
13. What is you best tip for dressing for a special occassion?
Wear what is comfortable. You won’t have a good time if you can’t move, sit, eat or breathe. Make sure you can wear the outfit without too much scaffolding and shapewear so you can focus on enjoying your night and carving up the dance floor!
14. If you could only get your hair, make up or a spray tan done for a night out which one would you choose?
I would go for make up. I often get make up done at Napolean and claim back the cost of the make up on new items for the make up drawer. I love learning tips from the make up artists too.
Thanks so much for having me.
