Leone’s style story (below) is just a fraction of what she actually wrote for me when I asked her a few questions about her shoes, coat and handbag!  Her passion for style is very real and I love that.  I mined a few of the best gems for you here…

“I used to wear big chunky skate shoes, but have realised perhaps they’re not so much my style anymore. I kinda chose them because they were warm and I was feeling ‘casual Leone’ that day too.   I love the bag – it’s from Lady Mux, where I work on Wednesdays, and I have put it aside.  I love it for many reasons; it’s leather, the tassel, and the fact that there’s a leopard print patterning to the leather even if only I notice it!  The essence of the bag just oozes Leone style, do you know what I mean?  It’s hard to explain, it’s that feeling.  My fur coat is one of five I own and this particular beauty has been in my life about a year – leopard print is my jam if it’s the right kind.  I have been on the look-out for second-hand leopard ‘fur’ for about 10 years now. It’s still not my ultimate coat I must say.  One day I’ll find one better and then sell this one!  I have always considered myself pretty ‘anti-fashion’ so it makes me laugh that leopard print is now trendy. It used to bother me when I was a teenager, as in, if something was ‘in’ I would avoid it!  Now I just wear what I like”.
