Style, Scanned

MARINA, author of addictive fashion site, 'Style Scanner' and partner of cork connoisseur, Jonathan ('Wine Splodge') is hosting this decadently dressed mannequin. Dazed and hungover, I snapped it following the 24-hour train journey from St. Pancras to Portugal for the European Wine Bloggers Conference.
