You're on a first date, what shoe do you wear? A first date? Definitely a safe shoe for me, I'm a nightmare in heels so added with the nerves of a first date I'd have to go for a chunky platform boot. It's a style that I can walk in with ease, won't kill my feet after half an hour and more than anything, make my legs look super long.

What's one fashion rule you always break? I always break the rules on jewelry, I'm forever sporting a mix of Rose Gold and Silver at the same time. I also like to layer it up on rings and necklaces, my sissy always says that I've got too much on but it'll never be enough for me.

When it comes to shoes, how much is too much to pay? I'm not a huge spender on shoes as I always ruin them driving, if I was to splurge though it would be on a some killer platforms or my ultimate lust list shoe, the Susanna Boots by Chloe, their all studded and just ugh, their to die for! 

Who is your favorite shoe designer? I love Jeffrey Campbell shoes and Unif, their shoes are absolutely amazing and such statement pieces. You can literally wear the simplest of outfits and just let them do all the talking.

If you were a shoe, what shoe would you be? A fresh pair of white Converse is my ultimate go-to kind of shoe—a super laid back style that can be dressed up or down in a matter of minutes.
