Perfect Fit: Model Competition 2014 - Catherine

We shine the Spotlight on Catherine, our size 8 model and the next  to arrive at the Perfect Fit Model Competition. We spent 5 minutes with her while she was in the hair and make-up chair.

 About Catherine...

Her blog... On her 39th birthday and getting closer to the big 4-0, Catherine decided she wanted to make her blogging debut. It was going to be a 1 year project but has been so successful that she left her 9-5 job last June and now blogs full time. She is thrilled to be doing something she loves so much and enjoys the creativity mixed with  a totally varied schedule, from fashion shoots to runway shows. Inspiration for anyone thinking of turning a creative outlet into a full time role!

Check out her blog here: not dressed as lamb

Her style notes... Catherine has been referred to as the 'Queen of clash' as she has a knack of mixing bright colours and prints to create a unique and fabulous look. In her own words, it's "eclectic / preppy with a twist". For London Fashion Week, she wore a vintage tapestry coat and a sequin kimono but she can dress right down (in PJs) to blog from home.

Where she shops...always online and she looks at ebay for vintage finds. Catherine's best find is a 1970s black chiffon dress with puff sleevs and orange polka dots.

Her classic films... The 'queen of clash' theme continues as Catherine's two favourite films are Breakfast at Tiffany's and Terminator 2!

In her own words... ''A huge fan of keeping fit, cherry lip balm, people watching, giraffes, the theatre, astronomy, freckles, and generally seeking out life's pleasures.''
