In this week’s issue of LOOK, we’ve featured your gorgeous, pink spotted top and skirt. What are your tips for wearing printed co-ords?

I’ve already worn the skirt with a burgundy roll-neck top and some biker boots for a really dressed-down look. And that’s the nice thing about this outfit – you can just buy the skirt on its own and dress it for autumn with a big woolly jumper. Or you could just buy the top and wear it with high-waisted trousers. Alternatively, if you’re feeling daring, you can wear the skirt with the matching top.

Speaking of autumn, are there any new-season catwalk trends you’re looking forward to wearing?

Faux fur. It keeps coming back every autumn/winter but I like loads of faux fur – the bigger, the better. The more kind of like Puff Daddy ‘back in the day’ it is, the more I think it’s the way forward.

Your wedding dress was the perfect balance between vintage and contemporary. What would you suggest to all the brides out there looking for a dress on a budget?

Think outside the box – don’t think you’ve got to wear a particular colour, or style. You can do whatever you like. Take that bit of fabric at the top of my dress, for example, that wasn’t necessarily wedding-y at all but I fell in love with it – it was so beautiful. I think you can just go around looking at markets and things – there are some really great fabric sources you can find. You can find something that will inspire an idea – look on Pinterest, that’s what I did, lots of things like that. Even if you get a very basic white dress on Ebay or from a vintage shop or website, make sure you embellish it with pearls, lace and diamonds, and get a dressmaker to embellish it slightly; it’s easy to do things on the cheap. I think there are so many good wedding ideas that bring your wedding budget down these days.
