The real women behind DuoBoots – Jay Colley
Following the great response to our first Real Women blog with the lovely Chloë, we thought we would give you another one! This time we are joined by Jay, who models Luxor Black Leather in foot size EU41 (UK7) and calf size 40cm. Jay is not just your everyday girl about town, but is also a hardworking young professional, currently working as an account executive for a fashion-orientated PR firm in Bristol.
Once again we did a little Q and A, to give us a first hand insight into what our customers really get up to in their everyday lives and what they love most about their Duo boots!
Hi Jay, what are your main passions in life and what do you love about them?
I love to cook! I love it so much because I used to spend a lot of my time at university fantasising about the yummy dishes I would make if I had more free time (and money). Now that I do, I absolutely love creating dishes, trying out different ingredients and reading up on tips and tricks of how to improve the tastes and textures of some of my favourites.
What is your favourite place in Britain and why?
My favourite place is London. I am a city girl at heart... I just love how fast-paced the city is and the fact that I can always go there and be a tourist, discovering new places every time go.
What about your favourite place in the world?
Dubai! The food, the beaches, THE MALLS, the list is endless! There really is something there for everyone to do.
What do you like about the style of DuoBoots you chose?
My first choice was the black leather Luxor; they are just a timeless statement piece that I’ll be able to wear for years to come, as you can never go wrong with a classic black knee-high.
What is your favourite item of clothing and how does it make you feel?
Definitely a pair of jeans. They are so versatile and give me the confidence to rock any look I like. For example, a pair of mom-jeans is the perfect go-to for both a casual look with a white tee or can be dressed-up with a pair of ankle boots and a bodysuit.
If you could design your own style of Duo boots, what main features would you choose?
The main features of my design would include a low block heel, a sharply pointed toe and croc leather – how chic is that?!
Who would you say inspires you on a daily basis and why?
Beyoncé, because she is an absolute queen.
What is your guilty pleasure?
Going to IKEA. I personally find it so therapeutic! I go a couple of times a month to get some things for my flat (and of course to stock up on the Swedish meatballs).
If you had to pick, what takeaway is your favourite?
Thai food is definitely my favourite.
You can only take 3 things with you when you are sent to live on another planet. What would they be? And no, you can’t pick people!
My phone...but only so that I could go on Twitter, because the people that I follow are hilarious and I think I would definitely need the entertainment if I was on my own. And then it would have to be a cookbook and of course my handwritten letters from home.
And finally, just so we know what makes you tick...here’s a quick fire round!
