Describing herself as “classy and sassy”, Debi shows that fashion doesn’t have to be perfect, nor does it have to be serious.

We love that she has embraced her “quirks” and created a brand that not only gives lifestyle inspiration but provides some solace for her 60,000 followers, too.

Debi tells us how she stays passionate and motivated every day.

What do you think is the key to success?

To me the key to success is being passionate about what you do and loving what you do. It is feeling secure and happy and not being in competition to have more or be better than the next person. 

What do you love about this stage of your life?

Being in my mid-50s, I now feel more confident being able to be the real me with all my faults and quirks.  

I love that I can just be myself, wear what I love and worry less about what other people may think.

Life is for living and as I’ve gotten older, I realise how easy it is to spend time worrying about things that aren’t really that important.  

What motivates you?

My philosophy is to enjoy life and not take myself too seriously.

Women supporting women is something I really believe in. If this midlife woman having fun can inspire another to get out there and live it, that’s brilliant. For me, that usually involves a splash of lipstick and a pair of heels!
