Marieke Hardy - Australia
Marieke is a little different to the other ladies I've featured thus far, actually, she's is a little bit different overall, and I like that. She used to be a prolific blogger, but instead of fashion being the focus, it was *whispers* politics, so I guess that makes her the thinking mans/womans crumpet. I love everything about her: I adore her style, I relate to her passion for animals, and she turns up on all my favourite radio stations and TV shows, and in my beloved mags and newspapers. She's super-cute, smart and sassy - just a few reasons why she informs my style.
