I Know What I Like
When it comes to dress, I know what I like.
My style is 1970's Bohemian meets rock star groupie - think leopard print, faux fur, faded band teeshirts, floaty dresses, ripped denim, beat-up leather, skinny waistcoats, hipster belts, velvet, rich jewel shades, patchwork, floppy brimmed hats, oversized sunglasses, trailing skirts, silk scarves and tribal jewellery, peacock feathers, snakeskin, tusks and anything Eastern.
Shopping comes easily to me, I see, I fall in love and money changes hands. I don't need to trail round shops constantly spending my cash, I'm aware of what suits me and don't feel the need to change my look.
The great thing about having a certain style is that my local shops put aside things they know I'll like - the Kate Moss jacket and lace-up shoe boots were kindly saved for me today by the TopShop staff. Charity shops often save vintage clobber and a stall-holder at the car boot sale I regularly attend looks out for "weird hippy stuff".
Apparently I'm easy to buy presents for, too - the more bizarre and off-the-wall the better!
