I first saw Stephanie’s outfit posts over on citizenrosebud and I immediately knew that I wanted her to feature on street style icons. I loved the minimalism, I loved the designers she was rocking, I loved the fact she was wearing designer pieces after a run of street style icons championing the high street. Her look also reminded me of a colleague I had when I worked at Harvey Nichols, they seemed to share the same love for particular designers and shared a similar sort of style. I then visited odysseyhome and loved how minimal it was, all white, big photos and little text. She just lets the clothes do the talking. Anyway, enough of me this is what she had to say about everything style related.
