Starting own home entertaining business I love Top Shop and Stratavarius in the Jervis Centre, Dublin
Shoes, Office €45 on sale; tights, Penneys, €3; dress, Asos, free from my niece; cardigan, Marks & Spencer, €40
I once spent £95 on a pair of trousers, back when we had pounds. I had to tell everyone they were £40
I got a check shirt with leather elbows in a surf shop for €10. It had beautiful material
So hard to say, I don’t follow celebrities. I guess Amy Huberman if I had to pick someone
I don’t like Rihanna’s stuff at all, especially the gear they’re selling in River Island
I’m on a start-up budget at the moment, so no more than €50 to €100 I’d say
People who have no awareness of size, what suits them, and what to wear that’s right for them
Bow in Powerscourt, Dublin is my favourite in Ireland, but I also love Mina in Japan, www.mina-perhonen.jp
Shoes, Paul Green at Arnotts, the price I can’t remember; dress is an Indian hand-stitched dress that I found in a café/boutique run by two sisters near Lombard Street, D8, in a huge size and redesigned myself, about €150 in a sale, reduced by 50%; wrap, Electric Sheep, €100; bag, Jerome Dreyfuss, on sale for €300, down from €600
I don’t usually spend that much, but I look for quality. My most expensive really was a traditional kimono for my wedding
I love getting fabric from all around the world, but I got a wonderful one from Guatemala that was incredible value for me.
It’s hard to say, when they wear expensive clothes it’s easy to look gorgeous.
I can’t think of any that stand out either good or bad
It’s hard to say. Sometimes I won’t buy anything for several months as I buy quality that lasts for a long time, so I don’t shop often.
Leggings. Even with a lovely figure, it’s really hard to make them work.
