Why did you start up Wears My Money?
I started Instagram about 18 months ago and I really enjoyed writing the captions, more so than taking the photos, so I decided that when I got to 2000 followers I would start a blog so I could write more!
How does style blogging fit into your day to day life?
With difficulty sometimes to be honest! I have a full time job in the Music Business and 2 kids, so I write my blogs in the evening. I always post once a week, but would like to do more.
How would you describe your personal style?
I’m a tomboy at heart, I feel odd if I’m too dressed up, I love dresses but I will almost always dress them down with boots or trainers and a leather jacket. I was a big rock chick in my youth and still veer towards that quite a bit!
How does music influence your look?
Not so much these days but back in the day I was always trying to be the female version of Axl Rose from Guns and Roses or Robert Smith from The Cure.
Which is your favourite musical decade/fashion decade?
My favourite musical decade is probably the late 80’s but my favourite fashion decade is right now!
Being Head of TV at Warner Music UK must be an incredible job, how did you get there?
I actually went to London College of Fashion, but I fell into working in music when I left. I worked at a few independent PR firms, then got a job at a Heavy metal Record Company (I still have the tattoos to prove it) I joined EMI in 1999, Parlophone in 2008, which then merged with Warner about 4 years ago.
Where do you gather inspiration for your blog and your instagram feed?
I get inspiration from people on the street, going shopping and seeing what’s out there, from friends, or just off the top of my head. I only ever write about things I genuinely like. I usually end up buying half the stuff I write about too! It’s a problem!
Who are your style heroes and heroines?
I love Phoebe Philo, Stella McCartney, Christine and the Queens.
What are your favourite trends for the season and how will you be wearing them?
I'm massively into long sleeved midi dresses worn with chunky boots and a biker jacket!
What are your Autumn must-haves?
Great boots and coats. I always start with the shoes!
Where would you like to take Wears My Money in the future?
I've got a few ideas brewing, but in the meantime I'm happy to just see where it takes me!
