No. 1 Magazine - - SIX STYLIST SCOTS -

are a great piece for me – ca­sual and so comfy, which I’m all about when it comes to cloth­ing. I wear them with a ca­sual top, usu­ally a white top as you re­ally can’t go wrong with mono­chrome. I also love throw­ing on a leather jacket, I seem to be wear­ing my leather jacket with ev­ery­thing at the mo­ment as it just makes ev­ery­thing that wee bit cooler.

I also love my mini kilt paired with a black sweater and again, my leather jacket.

It’s ideal for keep­ing me toasty in the win­ter. An ac­ces­sory al­ways goes a long way so I’ll brighten it up with a neck­lace, then just pair it with my comfy flat boots. I feel cosy, com­fort­able and ready for win­ter in an out­fit like that.

My style is prob­a­bly not that stylish to be hon­est.

I’m all about be­ing prac­ti­cal, be­ing comfy and in my job I need to be ready to go. One day I could be out pick­ing ber­ries and the next day I could be find­ing what the key fash­ion trends are for this sea­son. I’ve got to be ready for all dif­fer­ent ac­tiv­i­ties. I’m quite tall so I’ll usu­ally opt for flat shoes.

I love a deal, most of my pieces are bar­gains be­cause I like to keep things a bud­get.

I don’t like to spend hun­dreds on one piece be­cause I like hav­ing a va­ri­ety of op­tions.

I think the big­gest splurge item I’ve ever pur­chased is when I bought a se­quinned gold strap­less dress for when I was go­ing to Miss World.

I thought that was an oc­ca­sion where I was able to jus­tify a few hun­dred pounds and it made me feel amaz­ing. I got it from Wish Bou­tique in Glas­gow and I am to­tally in love with it.

I tend to be quite good in the sense that if I buy some­thing and don’t like it – I’ll take it back be­cause I don’t have enough wardrobe space for lots of re­grets.

How­ever, I do have a leop­ard print dress that is too tight across the thighs and will prob­a­bly never work. But I did that thing where I thought, ‘If I lose a few pounds I’ll squeeze into it.’ But it’s been hang­ing there for a while! I have so many fash­ion faux pas, as I said, my style is not par­tic­u­larly stylish. I con­stantly look back at pictures of my­self and think ‘What was I do­ing?’

I think when you’re on tele­vi­sion you’ve got to dress in things that make you feel con­fi­dent as con­fi­dence is key.

In terms of clothes, I’m not given too many point­ers by my work, mainly just to wear some­thing that makes me feel good.

The out­fits I feel best in are my evening dresses.

I am a hor­ri­ble per­son to shop for – I’m tall and I’m curvy. But I’m lucky with my shape, although it is a nightmare to shop for. I just love an evening gown – some­thing that is meant to be worn to make you feel fab­u­lous. If I could live ev­ery­day in an evening gown, I would.

In terms of fash­ion re­lated ac­ci­dents on screen – noth­ing too dra­matic has hap­pened yet, touch wood.

But I have worn a dress which I thought was fine and day to day it is, but be­cause of the stu­dio lights it be­came a lit­tle see through. You could def­i­nitely see my bra. But I learned from my mis­take!
