How would you describe your style?
Eclectic layering of as many natural fibres as I can wear.

How do you maintain your sense of style in the winter?
I actually prefer my style in winter, layers are perfect for this. Summer is when I struggle with my style.

Who/where do you derive inspiration from when putting together an outfit?
The day, the weather, my mood all inspire me to choose certain pieces. My favourite things can be put together in many different combinations. This winter cashmere has inspired me!

Name a current trend that you just can't get on board with?
I've always enjoyed seeing the trends come and go over and over. My clients can make everything look great! Anything made of cheap synthetic fabrics has always been a pet peeve.

Local hotspot for gems?
How can I not say Elsie's?
