By: The Office Stylist
As a fashion stylist, journalist and star of CW’s brand new show, Plain Jane, Louise Roe has A LOT going on.Take a peek inside her working world, hear about her working tips and see what a typical working day is like for Louise.
Describe your typical workday.
I never have a typical one! Right now I’m filming Plain Jane. I get up at 5 a.m. I have hair, make-up, and smoothies at my house before we hit the road for a day’s shooting on location in LA. I change three times a day for scenes, so we bring lots of shoes and dresses on the road with us too!
If you could work anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
I’m lucky that I get to travel a lot. I love LA, New York, and London. But I’m hoping to hit Sydney soon because I used to live there.
How would you describe your workspace?
I write my column from a white lacquer desk at home- lots of light around me, Diptyque’s Figuier candle, and a bunch of magazines!
What is one “work item” you can’t live without?
My red Smythson diary. I’m a pen and paper girl.
If you could switch careers for a day, what would you do?
A show jumper! I love horse-back riding and used to do a lot of it.
You have so much going on; can you give us one tip on how you keep it all together?
Lists! I’m an obsessive list-maker and have a pad and pen by my bed. I also know when to relax and switch off. Best friends and gin and tonics are a huge part of my routine. :)
What are 3 things fans don’t know about you?
1. I’m a geek and love poetry.
2. I randomly cuddle and squeeze people a lot.
3. I can do a bunch of different accents!
