Roll up , Roll up and welcome to our very first style file! This will be the first of many articles that will be done on people who we find interesting and oh so stylish...
It takes a certain type of person to be considered stylish (ha, well in our book anyhow). Size, shape, budget.. whatever if you can pull together an outfit that shows your personality and creates a signature for you, then we will bow down (or photograph you for this blog hehe!).
So our first victim is our lovely friend Maebh.She is a photographer and has been rocking the vintage/ high street / charity shop look for as long as I've known her. When we asked her to describe her style in three words she chose.. "vintage" , "fun" and "eclectic".
She has the enviable talent of being able to find the most amazing pieces in charity shops that leave me green every time I ask her where she got them!
Another great thing about her is that she will always tweak a dress or a top with some customizing which makes it unique.
Maebh tells us that Textures really inspire her style. She likes to mix fabrics and prints as well as styles such as boyish and really girly. I think this shows in her first outfit here...
Blue and White striped shirt H&M,
Brown Belt H&M,
Baxter Jeans, Topshop,
Brown Brogues, Topshop,
Bag Oxfam (customised by Maebh)
Glasses, Vintage Market - Amsterdam,
So Maebh.. how would you say that your clothes express your personality?
Usually my mood effects what I wear day to day. Also what I'm up to or if i have something special to go to.
What would be your favourite item of clothing?
My black American Apparel dress, because it's so versatile and goes with everything.
