Read on to find out more about this wardrobe wizard…
Who are you and what do you do?
I am a Melbourne based personal stylist aiming to help Women and Men feel their best every day by understanding the way clothing can make you feel.
I’ve had 15 years experience in the fashion industry and love being around people, so with my knowledge of body shapes, styling and fabrication I decided to start How To Wear It and haven't looked back. I also run Style Workshops at companies. The aim is to educate their staff on how to dress for work keeping in mind dress codes are a thing of the past but you still need to look polished and professional.
Are you happy with your work/life balance?
I love it! It has taken a while to get to this point but the hard work has certainly paid off. Although it's busy juggling a new business and a 6 month old baby, with the support of my husband, friends and family I manage to make it work. I feel so lucky that I have been able to turn my passion into my job. And most importantly it allows me to be able to spend precious time with our baby, Lily. Time flies so I figure it's important to do what you love and spend time with people you love.
Tell us something about yourself that would surprise people.
That I actually can sit still.... Yoga and meditation helps. I don't spend much time on the couch (life is far too short for it and who has the time!) but I do like a bit of downtime in between running around.
What makes you get up and want to dance?
Anything by The Rolling Stones and being around my favourite people... oh and a few glasses of champagne helps! ;-)
What are your favourite White & Co pieces?
That's a hard one!!! But I do love their basic tees. You can never have enough. Currently I am obsessed with The Middles Tee - it's pretty much the perfect white tee. Also the Willow Lace Top with the Harper Jeans is one of my favourite looks and the new Isabelle Jacket - that is just amazing!
