SHEmazing! caught up with Nuala, who let us in on her own fashion must-haves:
What item do you think every girl should have in her closet?
A great coat. I have so many coats – too many even – but I honestly think they are so important. A stylish coat can make even the simplest outfit look effortlessly chic.
What’s the most expensive item of clothing you’ve bought?
At the risk of sounding really spoiled I have to admit most of my really expensive, designer pieces have been gifts. I’d probably have to say my Senso boots were among the most expensive I’ve bought myself, partly because they were expensive and partly because they came from Australia and customs sent me an additional bill!
What’s your best bargain?
My camel coat, which I got for £5 in a vintage shop in Glasgow. I love vintage finds.
What would you say is your favourite accessory?
Definitely my Michael Kors rings. I’m quite the magpie when it comes to accessories. I also love sunglasses.
If you could only shop in one store for the rest of your life, which would it be?
That would be so difficult but I’d have to choose Zara. Their pieces are very classic and I love their bags and shoes.
