If you could be reincarnated into any era, it would be: the 60's! The fashion, the people, the anti war movement and rise of feminism- all divine and my cup of tea. And honestly, two words: Edie Sedgwick. Fashion today is still a reflection of what she introduced to the world 50 years ago.

The earth is close to being invaded by mutant space monsters - the mothership is on its way, what do you grab? My mac, my boyfriend and a ninja, they always seem to know what to do.

New Year's resolution? Better time management skills & treating my online shopping addiction. topshop will be the death of me!

If you were a serial killer, what would your trademark be? Oh dear, probably a smiley face! I cannot seem to stop typing them on my website, my blog, my messages, my facebook, it's driving me insane. I'd probably leave everything symmetrical with a little "I'm really sorry for killing you :)" note behind.

Favourite food: I can't go past Mexican or a warm plate of pork dumplings.

How did you start Gary Pepper Vintage? Gary Pepper was an idea I had when I was about 15 in high school. I have always been fascinated with vintage and how it creates so much freedom to express your own unique style but never knew it could be a serious career path for me. Last July somebody asked: "what is your dream job" and I replied "owning my own vintage store and traveling the world sourcing pieces for it" and then it clicked, why wasn't I doing exactly that? So I got my act together, did my research, launched Gary Pepper vintage that October and quit my job to take it full time after only 2 and a half months and the rest is... well, it's still in the making but i already feel that I understand the whole 'if you do something you love, you will never have to work a day in your life' thing.

A little bird tipped us off that a $100 voucher for Gary Pepper is up for the taking - how might we get our hands on said article of awesomeness?
