Kath Purkis from Her Fashion Box is allowing us a sneak peek into her fabulously stylish wardrobe for Kimba Likes Style Profiles.
Which celebrity’s wardrobe would you most like to raid?
Olivia Palermo, hands down! She has such a polished and chic style that is very similar to my style.
Which character’s wardrobe would you most like to raid (TV, film, literary)?
I would love to raid Rachel Zoe’s wardrobe. Let’s face it … anyone who loves fashion would be like a kid in a candy shop. She has the most unique pieces and has vintage styles from all over the world. She has the dream wardrobe.
What is your favourite colour combination du jour?
Nothing beats white on white with statement accessories. I am loving white denim jeans with a crisp white tee, rose gold watch and statement arm candy such as a Her Fashion Box chain wrap bracelet.
What one piece in your wardrobe instantly makes you feel fabulous?
A killer pair of heels. I often pop a nice pair of points on if I’m going to a event at night – instantly makes me feel fabulous and elongates your legs.
What is your most loathed current style trend?
I don’t loathe any trends right now, I love embracing trends and making them my own. Ie, I wouldn’t rock head to toe neon but I would rock a neon clutch with a classic outfit for a trend pop!
What is your favourite current style trend?
I am loving hologram, metallics and the mirrored sunglasses trend at the moment. I love adding metallics to a classic outfit and can’t wait to embrace this trend once Spring arrives.
I also love skorts and jersey style tees teamed with a classic blazer. Sport Luxe is going to be big again this Spring/Summer and I can’t wait to rock statement styles, like this Lagerfeld Jersey Tee from Le Black Book.
Which shop or label do you feel most sums up your style?
I love high street brands teamed with designer brands. I wear mostly styles from Le Black Book as it was my first business I started 6 years ago and it always keeps me on trend every month. I love the on trend styles from LBB and love to invest in accessories from net-a-porter.

“Style is a reflection of your personality and should always be effortless”
I am a big believer in being yourself and letting your personality shine through your style. I don’t spend hours getting ready in the morning, I’m out the door in 5 minutes, pick my outfit and go with it. If you have confidence, you can rock anything!

Where do you get your Style Inspiration from?
The street style blogs from around the world. I love looking at other bloggers and seeing what they wear. I get most of my style inspiration and life inspiration when I travel. Nothing beats meeting new people, experiencing new places and seeing the emerging trends in Europe.

What are your Holy Grail beauty products?
It’s not a beauty product, however drinking plenty of water will help you have glowing skin. My must-have products are MAC Strobe Liquid, Clarins Beauty Flash Balm, Maybelline Volume Express Mascara and an Ardell Brow Kit. I am a simple girl when it comes to beauty and have the less is more mantra.
