Favourite shopping destination

There is no particular favorite spot for shopping because it’s more about what I find and not really about where. I see it, I like it, I want it, I get it!

What would you wear to:

Date night: LBD, chunky pair of heels, the higher the better. It literally can never go wrong.

Evening with girls: Since my girls are pretty unpredictable and we would not know where we would end up, I would go for something comfortable and sexy, like a nice top with a skirt and maybe a pair of easy going pumps.

Casual dinner: Everything is casual until accessorised proper. So I’d go with a nice bodycon paired with flats or sneakers, a nice mini bag and hoop earrings. The mantra would be simple yet effective.

What does fashion mean to you?

For me everything is fashion, you just need to style it proper and be able to carry it off.
