I have been known to compliment strangers at traffic lights

Oriana saves her fashion compliments for items that she “really, genuinely likes”. However, if she spots something that fits the bill, she is not afraid to share the love. “It doesn’t matter if I know the person or not. I have been known to compliment strangers at traffic lights, on trains, sheltering under rainy shop canopies (the list goes on).” When it comes to defining what she likes specifically that is a little harder – she likes her red jumper because it goes with everything; her Sewasong necklace because it looks architectural and a pair of earrings because they are fun. “I’m most tempted to buy something for the same reason anyone buys clothes: because I think it’ll take me a little bit closer to the person I want to be or feel I should be.”
