BLOGGER OF THE MONTH: Ropes of Holland

Lindsey Dawn Holland is a Physiotherapist by day, fashion blogger by night. Originally from Stockport but living in Preston this 26 year old ex GB cheerleader (wowza) can normally be found in the gym following the Nike workout plan or watching Breaking Bad at home (things get serious in season 5!). We caught up with the blonde bombshell below...

What inspired you to start your blog?
I was drowning under the biggest pile of human anatomy books when I decided I needed something creative and exciting to put my energy into!

Describe your style.
I'd say I'm a massive advocate of the oversized piece! But then I also LOVE tailoring. You'll catch me in a pair of Adidas Superstars, and a suit!

What piece of clothing could you not live without?
Coats, coats and more coats.

What was your LFW AW14 highlight?
The whole experience is always pretty electric but I think being photographed by The New York Times was a class moment this season!

What was your favourite outfit during LFW?
I think it would be my day 2 outfit - culottes and a chunky knit layered with a biker jacket.

Who is your favourite designer?
Charlie May. If you haven't seen her work, I urge you to check her out!

If you could raid someones wardrobe whose would it be?
Olivia Palermo. She is puer class.

What's your favourite item from the Skinnydip collection?
I am in LOVE with the Jay clutch bag.

Style tip?
Search eBay for one off beauties to complete your look. I wore a long line grey coat to London Fashion Week that I found for 99p on eBay, and it's going to see me through to spring.

What is your most treasured possession?
I think it would have to be my 24ct gold "Lindsey" necklace in Arabic. My parents bought it when I was born and gave it to me when I turned 18.

Who was the last person you chose to follow on Instagram?
Jewellery designer - Fera Jewellery. Check her out, her collection is incredible! 

What's your fave blog to read on your lunch break?
The Style Crusader, without a doubt. I love the layout, beautiful photography and her witty writing.

What is your dream career?
You catch me with this question at such a funny time. I'm a physiotherapist but whenever I come back from LFW I always toy with the idea of moving into a career in fashion. I'd love to work for a fashion publication or brand where I could be involved in styling and have some creative input into trends and features. I'm dying to get into it!

If you were invisible for a day you would...
Sneak backstage at the Burberry show! Why wouldn't you?!
