2. Where is your go to place to buy your clothes?
My go-to for buying clothes is vintage stores, Depop, or my friend’s wardrobes! I’m often known as “hand-me-down girl”, as I love a pre-loved item! I was recently gifted some absolutely stunning vintage pieces from my partner’s amazingly stylish granny, and I can’t take them off! I am very much a jacket girl and have way too many, and they aren’t the cheapest thing to buy. Buying vintage can either mean that something is way cheaper or way more expensive, depending on whether it’s seen as “second hand” or “vintage”, so I try to avoid looking in the fancy vintage shops, as my wallet can’t handle the top shelf delights.
3. How have you found being an artist throughout the pandemic/ what have you been up to?
The pandemic has been such a bizarre time for everyone, and has definitely hit us musicians pretty hard. I have been trying to be as pro-active as possible, I managed to slip away to Wales for two months during the lockdown ease with my band Little Thief, and wrote a whole new album which kept me going. I’ve also been collaborating with some killer artists remotely, including 'Rews' and 'Paper Dragon' which is an opportunity that may not have come about if we were as busy as we normally are when the world is open! However, The lack of validation and the buzz you get from a show is very sorely missed. I can’t wait to be on a stage again!
4. Do you have any favourite beauty products for long rocking-out gigs?!
At gigs, I can’t live without a bold lippy! Even if I’m rocking a simple black look, the lip’s gotta pop! Whether that’s Pat Butcher pink or Marilyn Monroe red, it is a must have for my gigs. I tend to go for a lipstick that doesn’t rub off easily, otherwise I look a little like the Joker by the end of the show. I don’t have a fave brand as my budget is normally pretty low, but you can find lots of long-stay lips that don’t break the bank. A strong eyeliner and eyeshadows that don’t fade are next on the list for sure, and I’m still searching for ones that don’t budge! Although looking like Courtney Love with trashy makeup by the end of the show is actually a pretty rad look.
Bright coloured blazers, big hoops and band tees! Rhii always looks ON POINT and I have some serious wardrobe envy! Check out some of her looks below...
Bright blazers and classic iconic-figure tees, don't forget those hoops!
You can't go wrong with a rolling stones tee and bold red lip!
Chokers are the way to go! Paired with this corset-style top makes for the most effortlessly cool look.
