If I were stranded on a desert island with just one dress it would be... Well, it would have to be a MeIissa Odabash kaftan, as what else could you wear on the island and it would be extra comfy!
When I was at school I wanted to be... I always wanted to be who I am today from about the age of 10. But before that I real before that I wanted to be a Montessori school teacher.
My biggest style triumph was... I don't remember exactly, but I have always loved leggings and thigh boots. When that look came into fashion I was so excited because I could wear what I felt most comfortable in while still feeling stylish and cool!
