occupation: Muse, writer, aesthete and creator of the velvety virtual salon, Bourbon & Pearls.
location: Edinburgh, Scotland
wearing: Tallulah and Hope navy cape, J Brand Love Story jeans, Chanel 2:55 bag, Pebble London gold cuff, Chloe boots.
favorite designers: If I could overcome my claustrophobia, don a stocking and rob a bank, then my wardrobe would be beautifully arrayed with chalky Farrow & Ball toned concoctions from Oscar de la Renta, Carolina Herrera, Michael Kors, and Donna Karan. I like clean lines, a defined silhouette and a classic colour palette but I am not immune to the call of a little frou frou chiffon number for cocktail soirees.
In reality I head to J Brand for jeans, Gap for t’s and white shirts and for the rest I have no brand loyalty whatsoever.
what style means to Tabitha: Styling is the world’s second oldest profession. Since time immemorial we have been expressing our true selves through clothing. Whilst the arty ones set about decorating the walls at Lascaux with charcoal etchings, the less artistic like myself, picked up a feather or two, strung a row of shells to the edge of a tanned hide and voila, the long walk across Europe’s tundra just became that little bit more interesting for everyone.
