Describe your personal style.
“My personal style could range from athleisure mum doing school drop-offs/pick-ups to over-the-top glam going to a fancy dinner! I also like to jump on the “what’s trending” wagon and like giving new styles a go. But if I had to pick one that best describes me, I would have to say casual chic. I like a mix of dressy elements with something completely informal.”
Tell us what you love most about shopping for fashion at Watergardens?
“Watergardens is constantly expanding with more and more fashion options which is what I love to see in a shopping centre. You can get all your low-budget basics at Cotton On, drop by Sportsgirl for your casual get-ups or hit up Forever New if you need something a little fancier. I love how the centre has included all affordable fashion stores.”
What do you love about living in Taylors Lakes?
“I love how accessible the western suburbs are these days. Everything is near you and each other. You no longer need to go into the city or to the east for the convenience of having everything all in one place.”
What are your go-to shops and restaurants in Watergardens?
“My go-to for fashion is Decjuba, I never go into Watergardens without checking it out and I would literally not leave that store without anything! Don’t' even get me started on Kmart.... do I need to say more?”
What are your top style tips for fashion in 2022?
“1. Always add a little colour to your outfit to liven up your mood.
2. Play with proportions—throw an oversized item over a fitted outfit.
3. If you need to create shape, add a belt.
4. Neon is back.”
How would you describe the local look in Taylors Lakes?
“I would describe the local look here as a laid-back style. Our wardrobes are filled with sleek and easy casual basics that can be worn any day of the week. We go for comfort more than anything.”
