Daphne works as a journalist and a copy editor. She likes fashion but not shopping. She always goes to the shops alone and with a plan in mind.
"Shopping with other women can be problematic. They get confused searching for the perfect outfit and can spend hours thinking about it. I, on the contrary make quick decisions. I shop two or three times a year when I want to renew my wardrobe. I go to specific shops that sell clothes that fit my personal style. I prefer small boutiques with professional employees that will help me to put together the right outfits. It is a pity that such shops seem to go extinct.
Generally, I prefer to wear clothes that are comfortable as well as stylish. I like eccentric details and I am not afraid to combine bright colours with floral prints.
I like long skirts because they give me the freedom to move. I wear jumpsuits for the same reason. I don't like to attract attention so I dress simply and sometimes I add one piece of clothing or an accessory that makes a difference; but it’s only one piece. For example, I never wear high heels with my long skirt. It is my personal rule.
I usually don't spend a lot of money on clothing. Today, I am wearing a Zara jumpsuit, a pair of shoes I bought in Rome and my beloved large summer bag. I wear a belt, originally belonging to a pair of jeans, in an attempt to match it with my denim shoes.”
