Sandy Carrington: Sexy and stunning
How would you define your personal style?
My personal style is always changing. Right now I try to make more of a statement with my hair. My stylist Dion Grannum takes care of that for me, ensuring that I’m always well coiffed no matter what I wear.
Do you find that you follow fashion trends or do you play by the rules?
If a fashion trend suits me, I will try it. But usually I play by my own rules. I love bright colours and chunky accessories.
Has your fashion sense changed over the years or has it remained the same?
My fashion sense has definitely changed over the years. I remember I used to be a sneakers-and-shorts girl.
Are there any colours that you tend to shy away from, and if so why?
I love all colours – but white, black and purple I tend to pick up.
As a child were you always into clothes or did you grow into your own fashion sense?
As a child, Punky Brewster was my fashion icon (crazy, I know) . . . . I think I grew into my fashion sense with lots of help from my cousin who owns a boutique in Warrens. She got me going on the right path. I always loved to put on my mother’s make-up.
How does your day to day life factor into your wardrobe choices?
I don’t get to play with my wardrobe as much as I would like because I wear a uniform day-to-day and being on my feet a lot, my shoes can’t really be too fancy either. I try to make up for it when I do get the opportunity to dress up.
Are there any designers that you like to wear or whose clothing stands out with you?
I don’t run after brands. As long as it fits well and is comfortable (and I think it suits me), I’m happy. I do admire clothing and bags by Michael Kors, Guess and BCBG, just to name a few. Sometimes I will just have something made.
