Name: Cherry Dollface
Occupation: Social Media Influencer

What is your favourite piece in your wardrobe, why do you love it and where did you get it? 
It is hard to pick just one! I would say all of my vintage 1950s party dresses. I love netting and sparkles! They just make you feel so darn pretty. 

Who or what is your inspiration? 
I don’t think I have just one inspiration. I think these days having the internet allows you to be inspired daily in all directions. I am inspired by classic things and dark things. Right now, tenebrist Renaissance paintings are inspiring me!

If you could borrow anyone’s wardrobe (living or dead) who’s would it be
Betty Grable! She was an immaculate dresser.

What’s the one thing you wouldn’t leave the house without doing? 
Brushing my teeth! I feel like not doing that would be uncivilized. And probably putting a bra on.

What’s your top tip for feeling confident? 
Fake it until you make it! I always just silently tell myself I am fabulous or look in the mirror and just focus on the one thing that I feel good about. Even if I am not feeling it, it tricks your brain!

What’s the last book you read ?
At The Existentialist Cafe by Sarah Bakewell

What’s your favourite song, band or piece of music? 
Holy cow, what a hard question! I love so many different types of music. My favorites are Otis Redding, Rancid, JD McPherson, Leon Bridges, Chromeo. . .  Too may to pick from!

What three things could you not live without? 
My husband, soap, chocolate.

What's your biggest achievement to date? 
Traveling the world teaching classes and doing shoots. I never thought in a million years that I would get to see the things that I have and this would be my job.

What do you want to achieve before the end of the year? 
World domination. . .

Wild night out or cosy night in?
Depends on the night!

Naughty French martini or green tea goodness?
Martini. I can't have caffeine!

Dressed up or dressed down? 

Skirts or trousers?

Introvert or extrovert?
Introverted extrovert 

Comedy or thriller? 

Call or text? 

Truth or dare? 

True vintage or brand spanking new?

If I could change the world in one way I would. . .  
Pick a different president for my country.

What advice would you give your 15 year old self? 
You are good enough!

I am happiest when. . . 
No one is watching me. 

What’s your favourite What Katie Did piece? 
My Storm Corset!
