Daily uniform:

I like to mix high street and designers. I love clean lines with a spat of colour! Today I am wearing Kate Spade dancing shoe blouse and my favourite very worn in Made in Heaven black jeans. Lot's of unpacking to do!

When I am traveling and meeting suppliers checking out manufacturers (Margaret is in the process of designing her own line of bags), I wear my Red Burberry coat, Black Reiss Trousers and my Nikes. There’s nothing like a bit of comfort when walking the old streets of Florence. If clients are coming over, I dress for success and pull out my Alice Temporally ruffled blouse with more makeup than usual.

Shopping tips:

I love SHOPPING!!! All year round, I find great deals at The Outnet.

I live in London and during the sales I hit Harvey Nichols. If you have a Harvey Nichols card, you get an extra 10% off during the first three days of the sale. I go to Harrods for the vast selection of brands, and to the smaller shops on Sloane Street. Knightsbridge/Kings Road are great for high street bargains such as COS, REISS, Karen Millen. Being from California, I get back twice a year and stock up at JCrew and Kate Spade!
