I think my worst ever buy was an Idol dress I wore to the BAFTA Awards last year. I was eight months pregnant at the time, and I thought it would look good over my bump. It did, but to pay pounds 300 for a dress you are only going to wear once, is a fortune.
For work, I buy a lot of Strenesse suits. They make me feel confident. M&S I don't like so much. Their colours don't suit me, but I do like Morgan, it's so sexy, and good for staple items. I also shop at Hype DF and Kookai for bits and bobs.
I'd say my overall style is eclectic but particular. There are a few items in my wardrobe that don't fit that description. Both were presents from my parents and have great sentimental value. Dad bought me a black leather mini-skirt when I was 16 that I still have, and mum knitted me a jumper with the face of my pony on it. I also have a red sun-dress I've had for ten years, which I still wear. If I were to offer any fashion advice it would be to buy kids clothes. There's no VAT on them, so they're a lot cheaper.
