Describe your style in five words!
A classic dresser who loves accessories, especially jewellery.
Where's your favourite place to shop and why?
Elaine Curtis Boutique in Carlow, because I always find something I like there.
Who is your all-time style icon and why?
Jennifer Aniston. Whether it's on the red carpet or just a casual look, she never gets it wrong.
What was your best fashion buy...?
A cream Valentino winter coat that I bought in a 70% off sale-I've worn it to death!
... and your worst style disaster?
A pair of tartan flares - at the time I thought they were fabulous...
What's the most you've ever spent on clothes/jewellery/beauty products, and do you regret it or was it totally worth it?My silk and lace wedding dress - you only get to wear it once but it was totally worth it.
What beauty item could you not leave the house without?
MAC bronzer-it gives my face an instant lift.
Describe your debs dress to us, if you can remember it!
It was a short blue/green sequins number. I bought it in Monsoon and I absolutely loved it. I was a big Princess Diana fan and thought it was similar to a dress she had worn at the time!
Fake tan - are you a fan?
Yes but in moderation - I steer clear of anything with orange tones.
What item are you going to invest in for Spring/Summer?
I'm keeping my eye out for a really nice mac - so handy for summer racing.
Shoes or handbags - which are your greatest weakness?
Handbags at the moment - I love the clutch although it's not very practical

If you look good,you feel good.
