I think a lot of women might dress because they want other women to see what they’re wearing, I don’t think it’s just for the guys so I guess I tend to agree.
Do you have a ‘style icon’? If so who and why?
MM: I don’t really have a style icon but I have a friend Eve who gave me confidence to be more adventurous. It sounds cheesy but music… certain music styles. I like tapping into that. I once saw my brother play at a gig and I really liked that sort of sound so the next day I wore baggy jeans and a t-shirt instead of a dress. But weather plays a big part. I won’t wear a pair of shorts when it’s cold like a lot of people do. I really love doing my nails. I do it myself; I don’t go to a manicurist. I have the oils, the base coats, and the top coats. I’ve got the OPI Katy Perry one. I actually waited for the release dates to get it. So now there are people at college who wait to see what nail varnish I have each day. I really, really take pride in them (laughs). So that’s one thing I like.
How often do you change your nail varnish?
MM: Well they’re actually chipped today (holds out hands and inspects a nail) so I don’t know how I can handle that but these are good so I might just redo the chipped one and keep these ones for a bit. I’d say each week it’s different, yeah.
