Recently I have received a few messages through my various internet outlets, asking me about my style inspiration or how I get my ‘look’ (I don’t feel, like most people I have a particular look, it really does change according to my mood!)
So below are a couple of lists, and to be honest, I really cut it down! So many people inspire me and so many elements of life too…It’s impossible to write them all down, as it could be something as trivial as a colour combination on a sweet wrapper, or seeing someone pass me in the street with their hair a certain way. Let alone all the countless style muses I have developed.
But that’s the best thing about style, you can pick and chose to suit yourself!
