Real Life Style Icon: Vicki of Magpie Girl

This is one of many Real Life Style Icon interviews in which we talk to smart, funny, adorable ladies about what's in their closets.  Also, drool with envy over their dresses.

ame: Vicki
Age: 20-something ... but a 10-year-old at heart
Location: Hillsborough, a sleepy little village in Northern Ireland's countryside
Online haunts: blog, twitter, lookbook, facebook

Three reasons that you're awesome:
haha, now thats a question...em.. I make amazing scrambled eggs, I always share my sweets (which I have endless supplies of in all my handbags) and I'm always a glass half full kinda gal and can cheer anyone up!

What are you wearing right now, as you type this?
I am wearing a colbalt blue cropped knit from Asos, tribal printed trousers, brown loafers and a gold robot necklace.

What is the last item of clothing you bought?
I bought a lot of stuff before I went on holiday..but I think it was a pair of white lace shorts from Primark's new limited edition collection.

What is the item of clothing you most covet at the moment?
Lace-up wedges and I still really want Jeffrey Campbell Lita boots in liliac suede but they are sold out everywhere!

Tell us about a favorite childhood memory about your clothes. 
I was such a tomboy as a kid, growing up in the country I spent most of my weekends horse riding, climbing trees and drawing. I do remember owning a giant totally eighties-esque Minnie The Mouse jumper which I loved and every time I wore it I thought I was sooo cool!

What's your best thrifting score?
A grey tailored blazer with mustard lining. It looked like it had ever been worn!

Thanks so much, Vicki!
