Tell us a little about yourself? I am a busy Mum to two teenage children, Owner/Operator of Moss&Straw Flowers at Warrina Arcade and Milliner and Designer at Kirby McGill Couture. In my spare time I love getting to the gym or walking up Castle Hill.
Describe your style? Between working as a florist, a mum and designer, I try to keep my look stylish and elegant with elements of practicality.
Most treasured item? My most treasured item would be a Kailis Pearl necklace that I received as the Runner-up prize for the 2015 Townsville Ladies Day Fashion on the Field. I’ve never been one to crave jewellery but to receive one was very special.
Labels you like? I’m not a huge shopaholic or much into labels but when I do buy clothes I like the look of Cue, Review and Forever New. If I’m in need of anything though and I see something I like I’ll grab it regardless of label.
Best shopping trip? I was lucky enough to receive a $500 Review voucher as part of my prize for Townsville Cup Contemporary Fashions but only had a month to use it. I left it to the last day so my daughter and I did a ‘power shop’ at Review in Myer. It was a lot of fun.
Your style guru? I really like the style of Olivia Palermo and Emma Watson, both are true to themselves and wear clothes that suit their personalities.
You’d never be caught wearing…? well for me I wouldn’t be caught wearing Jeans and Sneakers (trainers).
Wardrobe item you can’t bring yourself to part with? I have quite a mixture of vintage finds and outfits that I’ve made my own. I can’t really part with any of them as they all have special moments and memories attached. One in particular is a dress I designed and entered in my first fashion design competition. I like to look at it now and then to see how far I’ve come with my designing.
Shoes or dress first? Oooh this is tough, but I’d be more inclined to sort my dress out first then finish the look with shoes.
Meaningful last words? “Have Courage, Be kind” Cinderella.
