Kirsten Bookallil

Friday 22nd Nov 2013

Today at INEZ Daily we take a peek into the wardrobe of my lovely, terribly talented friend, Kirsten Bookallil.

Kirsten’s style is faultless. Born in Chicago, raised in Johannesburg and now living in Sydney, she is one of Australia’s best lifestyle, interior and food stylists.

Starting her career as a graphic designer, she later became a stylist because “I like things in order”. When not working with clients like Sheridan, Sportscraft, Witchery or Country Road, her work can be found in the pages of Vogue Living, Belle, Harper’s Bazaar and Gourmet Traveller.

Aside from her curious, always charming and often humorous eye for detail, the thing I love (and dearly envy) most about Kirsten is her amazing sense of calm. No matter what chaos is circling (and there is often chaos in the styling business), this busy mother of 2 manages to always maintain an (exceptionally stylish) level-head.

Want to know how she does it?

I would describe my style as… liking fashion but not following fashion.
The best (fashion) lesson I’ve learnt is… a flat shoe can be dressy.
My most recent fashion purchase is… a Kenzo t-shirt and some Birkenstocks.
I keep buying more…. t-shirts
I need more… t-shirts
I wish I’d never bought… blue eyeliner
If I could only keep 3 things in my wardrobe, they would be… jeans, cashmere jumpers and white t-shirts.
My favourite labels are… Helmet Lang, Ellery and Acne
My favourite online shops areNET-A-PORTER.COM(of course), My Chameleon and Lane Crawford.
I always feel great when I wear… perfume – Tom Ford – Santal Blush.
Any outfit looks better with… a good attitude and lipstick!
