SHEmazing! caught up with Nicola, who let us in on her own fashion must-haves:

What item do you think every girl should have in her closet?
Every girl should have a “go to” dress. One that makes them feel good about themselves no matter what and that they can turn to when they are having a fashion dilemma. Mine is a black leather shift dress from Topshop which can be dressed up with heels or dressed down with flats!

What’s the most expensive item of clothing you’ve bought?
My most expensive item is definitely my pink floral Versace evening dress. I won’t say how much it was but it was worth it. I’m still in love with it 8 years later

What’s your best bargain?
My best bargain was a purple leopard print handbag from Juicy Couture in New York. It was reduced from $250 to $85 but when I got to the checkout it had been further reduced to $35. I couldn’t believe it and ended up with it in three colours.

What would you say is your favourite accessory?
My favourite accessory at the moment is my “Mi Moneda” necklace in rose gold. I love that it is so versatile, by changing the coins you can have an entirely different look each time.

If you could only shop in one store for the rest of your life, which would it be?
My favourite store has to be BT2 in Dublin. They have all of my favourite brands under one roof and cater for every occasion. I would happily shop there and there only for the rest of my life.
