Introducing her Majesty...

As mentioned yesterday this week I'm collaborating with stylist Queenie Morton on a mini project we have called 'a week in the life of my shoes'. It only seemed right that I introduced her to you all so here is a bit about the Royal Highness herself and some pics I took in her studio...

Sum up your style in three words - Anything leopard print, gold or nautical makes me very happy. A friend once described me as 'Chunk', a delightful Chav/Punk style combo, and I can't really argue with that.

Favourite piece of clothing? Has to be my black leather studded jacket, it literally comes with me everywhere.

Favourite vintage find? I found myself at Reading festival a few years back without a sleeping bag. I went for a rummage in the Oxfam tent looking for something cosy and stumbled across the most beautiful faux fur with gorgeous pink lining for £10.

Favourite vintage haunt? Beyond Retro, it's the perfect place to spend a Sunday afternoon. I'm also a little bit in love with their collection of vintage robots.

If you were a piece of clothing what would you be and why? A jewel encrusted knuckle duster, sparkly, ridiculous, but could still do some damage.

New York, Paris or London? Can I be awkward and go with Tokyo?

Top fashion designer? It has to be her majesty, Vivienne Westwood. One day I WILL own a pair of her shoes.

Favourite Style Icon? Where to start..? Marilyn Monroe, Gwen Stefani, Debbie Harry, Brody Dalle, Lady Gaga, Bettie Page, Dita Von Teese, Noel Fielding (I would give my right arm to look that good in a mirrorball suit) and of course the Queen.

Most prized personal possession? Has to be my shoe collection, at last count there were over 100 pairs. Also my shiny new red sewing machine.

Top tip for the season?
3 words - leopard, leopard, leopard.

Favourite cake? My homemade lemon cupcakes with lemon curd centre and gold lustre icing (of course!)

I am running around town today with meetings after meetings so we decided that this polka dot baby doll dress would be just the ticket to go with this vintage grey bag I picked up for the bargain price of £3 a few months back.
