You’d rather be
Country or city: City! I’m a city girl through and through. I like lots of things and people going on around me, and the energy that provides. I also like quiet city times too.
Cinema or Netflix: Prefer cinema, but end up Netflix all the time because of convenience
Coffee or tea: Tea! Strong English breakfast with a dash of milk. It’s literally the first thing I think of when I wake up in the morning.
Vegemite or Peanut Butter: Peanut butter, I always have this on toast to accompany my tea.
Bridgerton or Breaking Bad: Sopranos and Euphoria
Favourite life cheat? Ironing dresses while wearing them (just the bottom part obvs)
Favourite place to travel? Victorian coast and mountains / Tokyo.
Best advice you’ve ever received? Run your own race.
Favourite Little Tienda piece… Day trip Xael is so sweet and exactly the kind of layering piece that I love. I also love a stripe and the Cobalt table cloth and blush napkins are getting a workout at my house!
In one month Beci Orpin will be…
Working on various projects, travelling regionally a lot for one of those projects, watching the studio garden start to take shape.
Beci wears the Xael vest throughout.
