I’d like to give Norlin of Baubles Bubbles & Bags Style File a very warm welcome to Kimba Likes Style Profiles. Let’s take a little wander inside her wardrobe and borrow some of her fabulous style tips!
Which celebrity’s wardrobe would you most like to raid?
Hmm … this is really hard, but because you twisted my arm, I would have to say … Alexa Chung. Love her style and what she wears! She mixes casual with more classic pieces and makes it her own.
Which character’s wardrobe would you most like to raid (TV, film, literary)?
Now that I’ve watched The Great Gatsby I would have to say, Jordan Baker’s closet.
What is your favourite colour combination du jour?
Navy and red!
What one piece in your wardrobe instantly makes you feel fabulous?
The black biker style jacket I got from Zara when I was in Singapore. It is so versatile and I can change the style simply by adjusting how I zip it up.
What is your most loathed current style trend?
The super short shorts that might as well be underwear.
What is your favourite current style trend?
This is a hard one. Can I have a few favourites? Peplum surprisingly because now I can wear it depending on if it’s been designed “correctly” and anything to do with layering accessories – ring stacks, arm parties & neck party.
Which shop or label do you feel most sums up your style?
Zara – full stop.
Complete this sentence – “Style is …”
Something that cannot be copied because it is defined by the individual.
Share your fashion mantra
Do not buy retail unless it’s a true classic piece that you know will never be discounted.
Describe your style in one sentence.
Classic with a touch of edginess.
Where do you get your Style Inspiration from?
Share your best “Champagne fashion on a Sparkling Wine budget” tip
Shop your next season collection online from International sites because that’s when they’re usually having their sales to get rid of their current season – which usually would be OUR next season!
What are your Holy Grail beauty products?
Benefit BadGal waterproof eyeliner – love that I can smudge it to create my smokey eye look.
Benefit BadGal mascara – the only mascara that thickens my lashes so far.
Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream – the only Western BB Cream that actually does what it says!
Lancome Genefique Youth Concentrate serum or L’Oreal Youth Code Serum – these have helped rejuvenate my ageing skin.
Urban Decay Naked Palette – A great palette to create daytime or night time looks.
Thank you so much, Norlin. Definitely stealing your style! x
