I'm 16 and I'm a student :)
2. Where are you from, and how does that affect your style?
I was born in South Africa and lived there until I was 12; now I live in Melbourne, Australia. Melbourne fashion is particularly vintage and that has influenced me; I love all things old and off-beat!

One that I own: A gorgeous statement necklace from Peeptoe that is white and silver and topaz
One that I would like to own: Any and all 1920s style dresses!
4. Is there a look/trend that you really DO NOT like?
Australia went through a phase where they'd pair long black leggings with white socks -.-
5. What is your favorite designer or store?
Oh hard one... I love Forever New, Top Shop & Zara particularly!
6. Favorite red carpet look ever, like from the Oscars or the Met Gala for example?
I can't really think of a FAVOURITE off the top of my head, but I love all things Diane Kruger and I do really love this dress:

I really love the Hermes Birkin and the Reed Krakoff Atlantique!
