What are you wearing right now?

A Titus Andronicus T-shirt, some black jeans, a striped jacket and a headscarf that keeps blowing off in the wind.

What can't you live without?

Denim cut-off shorts – on their own or over tights or leggings, they go with everything.

What's in your wardrobe?

I have lots of dress-up clothes. I'm a real fantasy dresser and I love playing around with jokey bits and pieces; I think fashion should always be fun.

Describe the best outfit you have ever worn.

I have a zebra stripe jumpsuit that I adore, and which normally comes out from June onwards – just in time for the festival season!

Who are your style icons?

I love French actress Anna Karina for her smoky eyes, and Tina Weymouth from Talking Heads for her simple but quirky look.

What's in your make-up bag?

By Terry rose lip balm is great, and I always have eye-liner, some very red lipstick, mascara and bright orange blush.

If you could live in any decade, style-wise which would it be?

I'd go for the 1920s, because you could just swan around in amazing dresses all day. I love that flapper look and all the embellishment that was around back then.

How often do you look in the mirror?

Mmmm. Definitely more than a few times a day!

Any fashion confessions you want to share with us?

A few years ago, I went through a bit of an Edie Sedgwick stage, with a short, cropped and bleached bob. But I was a bit on the chubby side, and it was certainly not my best-dressed phase. Not a look to try again.

What's your secret style tip?

Get dressed quick. Otherwise you start thinking too hard about it, and that gets confusing and frustrating.
