Tell us about your personal style:
I love London style: the quirkiness, the edgy, outrageous aspects of their dressing style. Vivienne Westwood is one of my fashion idols, purely for the bizarre stuff she often wears. I also emulate Sienna Miller and Nicole Ritchie quite frequently. I believe fashion is all about self-expression, so I guess what I wear speaks for me. I would define my style as a crossroads between bohemian, vintage and eccentric.
What are some of your favorite blogs?
Oh god, I am blog-OBSESSED. Favorites include: Isa at Bohemian Musings, Karla at Karla’s Closet, Gala at Amlul, Susie at Stylebubble, The Stylish Wanderer, and finally, Frances at Happy-Because.
We love how you combine modern and vintage seamlessly in one outfit – any tips for getting your effortless look?
I think its important to not get too carried away with one brand or one look. Instead, match garments you would never anticipate working together and definitely always mix the new with the old. Also, charity-shops and thrift stores are brimming with great retro stuff: blazers and dresses are abundant – and long skirts can be snipped into shorter styles.
I am literature-obsessed, and while I have dozens of loved books, I would say one that resonated very deeply with me is: Wide Sargasso Sea by Jean Rhys. The narrative form and dream-like description seems to soak right down to the soul. Its beautiful. Read it.
What inspired you to start your own blog?
The urge to express myself publicly but also all the other fashion blogger pros who have created sartorial empires out of their own thoughts and fashion ideas.
How much time do you spend on this blog?
I spend about an hour a day on my blog, reading everyone’s comments, posting my photos and ramblings. It is rather time-consuming, but I absolutely loveeee it!
Any tips for girls wanting to start their own fashion blogs?
Make sure you have a camera first. Most blog readers want to know about your own individual personal style, not exclusively that of celebrities – and always be original. These days there are sooo many fashion blogs, its crucial to stand out.
What was your most recent purchase?
I bought a used dusty pink blazer from a charity shop the other day for 2.00 pounds. I simply adore it!
What is your fashion/styling rule?
Stay true to yourself, and dress the way you want to dress regardless of what others say or think. And finally, be creative!

blogger of the moment
Awesome… I want to be blogger of the moment! She is so fierce!!
I just got Wide Sargasso Sea from the library! Even more excited to read it now…
And even more convinced to get the Cover Girl’s Derby…
She’s very cool. Love her British style.
Took a college class about colonialism, race and literature and we had to read Wide Sargasso Sea after reading Jane Eyre, and the things that happen to her are so incredibly sad (in both stories). Hate Charlotte Bronte now.
Thanks so much for featuring Audrey, I so obsessed with her blog now! Her style is hot and really inspiring. My last three posts on my blog involve her!
I love her she is such agreat dresser!
The photos with the white sunglasses show my style spot on, lookin fab!
