What do you do?
I’m a style blogger (www.stylebyyellowbutton.com). I also have a styling business where I style individuals, consult for commercial brands and present style events.
You’re an expert in…
Making other people feel better about themselves by giving them tips on how to dress well.
What is an average day like in your world?
No two days are ever the same. Blogging, styling shoots, meeting with clients, presenting and working with brands and interviewing fashion insiders…it’s always changing.
How should one create their own personal style?
Be true to yourself! It’s not about creating a style – it’s about tapping into what already exists. This is one of my favourite parts of working with a new client – establishing their style and watching it blossom.
What are the fashion staples you think every girl should own?
- Jeans – they can be dressed up or down and are so functional.
- A great silk shirt. It oozes elegance when needed and screams ‘don’t mess with me’ teamed with something edgy.
- A great heel that isn’t difficult to walk in
- A fantastic, well-cut jacket.
- Basic t-shirts and singlets to team with everything.
- One incredible great-quality bag.
In your opinion, what’s the most fashionable city in the world?
I’d have to say Berlin. I LOVE people watching, seeing how people put outfits together and how they express themselves and Berlin is exploding with creativity. There is so much to see and it’s such an eye-opening experience.
