Carol's Real Style

Tue, 05/14/2013 - 07:00 -- anna

My real style feature is back, this week I'm featuring my gorgeous Mum!

Dress - Monsoon, Lariat - Libby Jubb Jewellery, Tights - Next, Boots - Made By Cara, Clinkards

My Mum is one of the most stylish women I know. Her neat hourglass figure means that pretty much any outfit works on her and this gorgeous dress from Monsoon is a perfect combination of soft, warm colours that compliment her hair, eyes and skin tone wonderfully. The fabulous lariat is made by local jewellery designer Libby Jubb and was made in colours specifically for her, check out Libby's Facebook page to see more of her amazing work.

1. Who's your style icon?

I have never had a style icon. However I really admire Helen Mirren, Judi Dench and Joanna Lumley. They dress beautifully and prove you can remain stylish and up to date regardless of your age. Helen Mirren's recent pink hairstyle was inspired.  I also think Lulu has maintained her rock chick image in just the right way.

2. Fave fashion purchase

My Miu Miu bag

3. Biggest fashion disaster

It has to be the purple hot pants teamed with knee high white boots, pink chiffon scarf and a good smattering of white lipstick!!!
4. Biggest fashion lust item ( if money were no object, what would you buy?)
Designer handbags (note the plural) and a Rolex
