My Fabulous Book of Looks

My fashion education is cobbled together from reality TV design competitions, dated tips gleaned from the now defunct YM magazine, and taking cues from stylish strangers I see on the street. I don’t know anything about couture; in fact, most of my clothes come Fresh from the grocery store. Basically, when it comes to fashion, I'm no expert!

But one thing I do know is you don’t need a closet full of designer labels to make a style statement. In fact, you don’t even need clothes to create a collection all your own. With My Fabulous Look Book, all you need is your imagination.

My style is pretty simple. I call it eclectic cute. I love dresses, blazers, bows and chunky costume jewellery. But I also like to hunker down in a comfy waffled Henley, a scarf and some super stretchy jeans. So, as I flipped through the pages of models to choose from, though the little girl in me wanted to dress them in fabulously flow-y ball gowns, I decided to fill my book with MY looks instead.

Statement necklaces, decorated headbands, sweetheart dresses and my signature side bun; these are the looks that make my style my own. But I also like to draw inspiration from my fabulous friends. A pretty three tone cocktail ring worn by the always bejeweled Miss Vicki. Nobody works a faded jean jacket like Patty-Lou. A braided headband over long wavy locks is all too-pretty Tess. And the inspiration for that purple hair comes straight from my own magenta-coiffed mom!

Who knows, maybe one day my designs will come sashaying down the runway
