When one is exposed daily to a steady stream of beautiful designer apparel, it is easy to get overwhelmed by it all, which explains why Stephanie’s getting back to basics with her outfits. Sticking to a largely monochromatic palette and in classic pieces such as her favourite skinnies, a simple breton top, a chic white blazer and high-tops, Stephanie admitted that it’s been challenging finding exciting new additions for her wardrobe. “Amazing pieces come through the door of StyleTribute everyday and I have become a very difficult shopper,” she confessed, “I purchase pieces only if they are genuinely unique.” A recent inspiration is the luxe bohemian style of Talitha Getty, who was frequently togged in hand-embroidered kaftans and intricate kimonos and capes. “I still love going to vintage markets and second-hand boutiques to hunt for hidden treasures,” Stephanie shared. 2014 has proved to be an adrenaline rush thus far, with successful fundraising, a move into a new office and team expansion just some of the milestones. “I’ve kept part of my 2014 resolutions, except for the slowing down the partying bit,” she laughed. “I’ll leave that up to 2015.”
