Meet: Daniella Hodgson

Spotted in: Laton Road

Daniella describes her style:

I like natural colours, I spend lots of time outside so I am affected by the environment and match the colours I wear to the seasons.

I like to feel comfortable so I am very careful to buy things that fit well. I’m a student and can’t afford to buy many clothes but I draw the line at wearing things with holes in.

Some days I wear Jeans and others I like to dress in feminine things. I enjoy wearing dresses and I prefer high heels to flats; as I am not very tall and heels make my feet look smaller.

I am from Hastings but I currently live in Plymouth, where I am studying Marine Biology and Coastal Ecology. I have just written a dissertation on marine plastic pollution and the effects of ingestion on marine organisms. I worry about the world’s environment and particularly the pollution of the sea. I am going to move to London when I finish this year and hope to get a job in ecology and help save the world!

In my spare time I play the drums, guitar, a bit of piano and sing. I write my own lyrics and poems too. I also brew my own ginger beer and enjoy gardening and growing my own veg. When I go on holiday I like to be busy, so sailing and skiing are my favourite types of holidays.

Oh and I love my pet rat!

My favourite item of clothing:

Is my long red duchess satin dress; I bought from The Wardrobe in Hastings Old town, I wore it to the Outrageous Decadence Ball. I felt very feminine and elegant in it. Another favourite is shoes, I adore high heels and I have been known to customise them. I was particularly proud of a pair that I added blue bows and sea shells to.
