WHO ALEXANDRA CLARK, 32

I AM a photographer and graphic designer.

I AM WEARING a jacket from Kinki Gerlinki in Brunswick, a top from the Salvation Army in Coburg and jeans from Dejour Jeans on Sydney Road. My boots are from the Salvos on Collins Street, my bag is from the Salvos in Brunswick, and my hat I bought in a hat shop in Bendigo.

MY STYLE glamour vintage but a bit more tomboyish, with lots of colours.

I ADMIRE THE STYLE OF Vivienne Westwood, she's got a great sense of humour, and she's not too precious. I love her clothes but I also like her attitude towards fashion, it's not too serious.

MY FAVOURITE LABELS are Chanel and Dior, their dresses are works of art and I really appreciate the time that goes into creating them.

MY FAVOURITE PLACE TO SHOP IS the Salvation Army in Coburg. The people who work there are really nice and you can always find something in there; it seems as though the racks haven't been gone through by everyone already.

MY BIGGEST FASHION MISTAKE WAS a onesie that was just a bit too tight.

WHEN I WAS A KID I'd get dressed up in a giant pink bathrobe, a papier-mache top hat, and grab the poker from the fireplace and pretend I was a dandy.

I WOULD NEVER BE CAUGHT DEAD in seven-inch heels; I'd break my legs.
