Some pieces of clothing you have on current rotation?
What would you like to be ‘when you’re a grown up’?
Tell us a joke.
Have you heard of anti-joke chicken? “Knock, Knock, Who’s there? It’s the police, your wife has been badly injured in a car accident”.
If you were creating a moodboard to sum up your own style and your favourite references, what would feature in it?
An excess of a barefaced Kate Moss, Angela Lindvall in Miu Miu turtlenecks and Chloe Sevigny in homemade hats and overalls.
What are your guilty pleasures?
Cigarettes, Halloumi and Glee.
Is it accurate to say you have a frugal approach to clothes?
It couldn’t be more accurate, the best indication of my clothes expenditure is to say that I usually have to have a serious think if the item is over £1. I am an ebay fiend first and foremost and since starting Uni my charity shop obsession has intensified, it is Deptford that caters to this obsession (the Methodist church, the Salvation Army, the list goes on!)
I remain a committed fan to Dev Hynes and his accomplishments so naturally the Blood Orange album has been one of my priorities, Etta James 'A Sunday Kind of Love', anything and everything by Sam Cooke and 'C'mon Every Beatbox' by Big Audio Dynamite.
I’d prefer to not wear make-up, but in order to avoid the much dreaded “prawn eyes”, I usually wear Rimmel kohl eyeliner, Maybelline Great Lash mascara (because its the cheapest!) and if I am feeling festive I occasionally wear orangey or red wine coloured lipsticks.
Your favourite films to stimulate the sartorial senses?
Amelie for the awkwardly long skirts, perfect hair and chunky shoes and Woody Allen for Gershwin, New York, his passion for Ingmar Bergman and Diane Keaton.
Aside from direct style references, what are your other interests?

There's a lot to like about Christopher Raeburn. I like that his surname sounds like the best and crunchiest variety of Apple. I also like that with his Spring 2012 collection he advocates both wearing plain grey school skirts and matching your socks with your vinyl rainwear. And just for good measure, all dedicated chameleons should place themselves against a matching rainbow appropriate backdrop, just as his models did. These anoraks are a prime example of a 'power by numbers' uniform, to be worn by packs rather than individuals. Earlier today I saw Francesca Burns and another of her Love Magazine collegues (can't remember who) strolling out of Somerset House in matching JW Anderson paisley trousers and I'd love to see Team Love each opting for a different coloured Christopher Raeburn anorak in a 'fashion tellybubby' sort of move.

2, 3, 4. The fantastic B.Store Presentation. Lots of braids and sturdy sandals galore. Models sloped about, nonchalantly chatting on the grand staircase.
5. Issue 3 of Hot and Cool! Had a excitable moment seeing the latest issue on the shelves of Wardour News with my two articles inside yesterday. Shamelessly said 'that's me, that is!' to the man behind the counter while pointing at my interview with Turned Out's Maya Villiager.
6, 7. Sheepy Knitwear at the Espirit x RCA launch party.
8. The delicious dalmatiany Unique collection at the Topshop Oxford St store.
9. Vintage crochet dresses at Topshop.

Hurrah, Fashion Month is GO! First up on my 'list of appreciation' is unsurprisingly Rachel Comey SS12. Comey continues her love affair with Bucket Hats (which I wrote about last year and still like just as much) in a collection featuring Moroccan sandals, slit skirts, seascape prints, halter dresses and a slight 'gone camping' Spring vibe with large, practical handbags.
