On dressing for a special occasion versus the everyday:
"For a special occasion, a cocktail dress from Giambattista Valli. For the regular day to day, there is nothing like a simple pair of jeans from Paige, blouse from VBH, ballet flats and a tailored jacket - to make it feel a bit more formal."
On how she looks killer on a sensible budget:
"I love mixing low cost pieces with some things that are higher end. " - citing that she pairs clothes from Topshop with shoes from luxury brand Jimmy Choo."
On other styling tricks she has up her sleeve:
"Invest in a special piece and make sure it's wearable each season."
On some of her current must-have pieces:
"Patterned trousers with a basic jersey top and spike heels." - noting her obsession with floral print pants."
