Kimba lets us into her world and her love for fashion and style.
Kimba, 42: “You can call me Kim-Marie or Kimba, but I definitely won’t answer to Kim :)”
“I’m 42 and grew up in Christchurch, New Zealand, and moved to Sydney a few weeks after my 22nd birthday. I then met a gorgeous British expat at the office in 1999 and married him in 2002. Two years later, we welcomed our son. We live in Inner West Sydney with two Netherland dwarf bunnies and two mini guinea pigs.”

“My style is classic with a vintage quirky twist. I love colour, print clash and layering. My daily life involves studying and blogging at home, family organisation, attending PR events, chauffeuring my son and working with styling clients. Comfort is always a factor, but that doesn’t mean forgoing style.”
“As I’ve gotten older, it is more about style and less about fashion. I like to incorporate fashion trends in my everyday style, but because it’s on trend doesn’t mean it’s in my wardrobe.”
“Style and beauty can be viewed as frivolous. Feeling better about the way you look on the outside can make you feel better about yourself on the inside – and that’s important.”
“I have really enjoyed being part of the Seeing Me Project, there are large swathes of women who feel invisible as they get older, who never get to see people who look like them in media. I love that Seeing Me Project has created an opportunity to be seen and to see. It’s been a fabulously fun experience!” – Kimba
