I’m a Fashionista…I’m also a wife, a daughter and a friend, but most of all I’m a mommy. I can go from playground to fashion event in 30 minutes, from Havianas to stilettos in a nanosecond and from casual to glam in a flash! I can transcend from mommy to glamorous with the swipe of a red lipstick…

I always find it quite funny and sometimes amazing how effortlessly I can switch between “mommy mode” and “fashionista”, from dealing with dirty little hands and faces, changing nappies, singing nursery rhymes, doing ABC’s and counting 1-20 to fashion styling, fashion blogging, putting together trends, organizing and hosting fashion events and attending runway and fashion shows!

Juggling different roles and responsibilities with each “personality” has become second nature and I often chuckle to myself and think if the “fashion pack” could see me now playing in the park with my son or sitting on the floor in his playroom playing cars or feeding my daughter at 2 or 3 in the morning…not so glamorous then! But still always conscious of fashion…I might be in casual clothes and Havianas or even pyjamas but I will always be stylish and comfortably fashionable…

This made me think of multiple personality disorder but with fashion and fashion personas…so I came up with the term “multiple fashion personality disorder” where you change from one personality to another so effortlessly you don’t even know you doing it! Anna Wintour once said “you either get fashion or you don’t”…I get fashion, always have and hopefully always will but to my children I will always be just Mommy.
