WHAT IS // WARDROBE ICONS:
Wardrobe Icons is a website dedicated to expertly edited essentials run by two former fashion editors. In a world saturated by what's IN fashion we tell you what never goes OUT of fashion.
HOW DID // WARDROBE ICONS COME TO BE?
BEST THING // ABOUT DOING WHAT YOU DO?
WHO WHAT // INSPIRES YOU?
YOUR FASHION STYLE: Classic with a boyish twist. I don't think you can ever go wrong in a white shirt and straight blue jeans with a red lip.
YOUR PARENTING STYLE: I am pretty strict I have a Gina Ford baby (god I hope this doesn't open me to a barrage of abuse) but he had reflux as a small baby and it gave me some structure or I would have lost my mind. Now it just still works for him and he is a fab sleeper, loves his bed and I think he's a very happy boy.
WHAT // CAN'T YOU LIVE WITHOUT?
WHAT // IS THE BEST ADVICE YOU EVER RECEIVED?
When starting Wardrobe Icons we had big aspirations and a mentor said: 'First find out if you have a vein and then tap it. Don't spend too much time or money on something you don't know will work. You need to be able to walk away from it if it doesn't'. Parenting wise, when I had Jacob and I had a terrible night with him, Laura said: "Just think you never have to do a repeat of that horrid night it's done and dusted. You're moving forward even when it doesn't feel like it."
