Q1 – You’ve been a Stylist since September last year – what made you want to get into Styling?
A – When I returned to work after maternity leave I decided if I was going to be away from my gorgeous babies I wanted to be doing a job I loved with hours that suited family life. I was often asked by friends, colleagues and even strangers in the street about my style and where I bought my clothes so I looked into a career change as a Personal Stylist. I’m so glad I took the plunge and started Styled By Lucy. I absolutely love what I do and feel so lucky that I have found a vocation that I am passionate about.
Q2 – Where do you get your style inspiration?
A – Everything influences me – Instagram, Pinterest, Magazines, fashion bloggers, Designers, my clients, passersby on the street.
Q3 – You’re a mum of 2 and are always on the go, what do you do to relax?
A – I’m still a party girl and love socialising so I actually find being out with friends relaxing. I can switch off from being ‘mum’ and dance the night away. If I have a rare child free day off you’ll still usually find me shopping or, at home catching up on crap telly.
Q4 – What’s on your SS17 shopping list?
A – I think I already own most of the SS17 trends so I really should take my own advice & shop my wardrobe first. Saying that I’ve got a couple of holidays & special occasions I will want new outfits for.
Q5 – What’s the best style advice you’ve ever been given/or gave?
A – I give my clients style rules based on the most flattering items for their colouring and body shape but, I want them to find their own style. Wear what you love and feel confident in, even if it breaks the rules!
Q6 – The school run is your runway, what do you wear?
A – I don’t dress for the school run, I dress for my day. I’m usually late and rushing off somewhere else so, I rock up to the gates in anything from workout gear to a dress and heels.
Q7 – If you could only shop in one shop for a year, which one would it be?
A – Zara never fails me. Whether I’m shopping for myself or with a client, it always comes up trumps so, I would have to pick Zara.
Q8 – Do you have a party trick?
A – I can still do the splits!!!
Q9 – Are you more of a heels or flats kinda’ gal?
A – Both! I love my heels and didn’t really wear flats before I had children but, my converse are probably my most worn shoes nowadays.
Q10 – What does your perfect weekend look like?
A – A Friday night out letting my hair down and the rest of the weekend spent with my beautiful family.
