1. Name/Age/Occupation?
My name is Laura, I'm 21 and I'm a shop assistant. 

2. Tell me about one thing you're wearing.
All my jewelry has a special meaning to me, having moved away from home and still being a family focused person, I wear them everyday to feel a little closer to home. They are all small pieces but all have a big significance! All gifted to me by a parent or bought for a family occasion. I'm not a big accessories person, having said that, I don't usually go a day without these little pieces on me. My bracelet for instance, is only a teeny little one, but my sister has the same one and my mum has the necklace and it kind of represents our little trio.

3. What influences the way you dress?
My style hasn't changed much over the last 5 years, I'd say I was very influenced by my life in Paris and the trends there. I dress very simply, and definitely prefer quality over quantity. I'm not one to follow big fashion trends really, I don't change my wardrobe often enough to do so. But sometimes I'll see a fabulous piece on someone and want to try it out, so I have a few bits and bobs in my wardrobe that are a little more extravagant! Street style is definitely what influences me most though, or what gets me to be a little more adventurous in my style! That and what I can find in my mother's wardrobe when I'm home.

4. The French are known for their great sense of style. As a French person, do you feel this is deserved? Why or why not?
The French have a talent for making everything in their looks seem so effortless, but it's down to very simple trends, where we would rather have a few beautifully cut garments and in gorgeous materials. It's also down to a very tonal look. Keeping it simple and well made is key. So I don't know if it's great style per say, but it's safe and you can always count on it looking simple and chic. Some may call it boring, to me though, it's very comfortable and an easy, fuss free weekly look.

5. Last question... Spontaneity or planning?
I'd like to say spontaneous, partly due to the constant change in the Irish weather, it would be tricky to plan anything! Though, often when I shop I'm looking for one specific thing, I find that every time I go shopping just as a wander, I'll be more likely to find things that I love, and when its planned and pointed, I usually go home empty-handed! So spontaneity always ends up working out better!
