My Glasgow Michelle McManus

How would you describe your sense of style?

I try to keep up with the latest trends but, for me, it’s all about the accessories.

How often do you go shopping in the city centre for clothes to wear at work and at weekends?

I’m a shopaholic and proud of it. I shop for clothes at least once a week and due to my busy schedule I do a lot of shopping online, which can be dangerous for the debit card.

Tell us about the last item of clothing you bought. Where did you get it, where did you buy it, when will you wear it and how much did it cost?

The last item I bought was a floor-length ruffle-top green maxi dress from New Look.

It was £25 and I finished it off with lovely gold heels and accessories.

Where do you shop in Glasgow – name three of your favourite shops?

I shop all over Glasgow. My three favourite shops are New Look, Dorothy Perkins and Tesco clothing.

Do you prefer high street or designer boutiques?

Well, as I wear a size 16-18, I’m afraid designer boutiques aren’t an option, so I’m a high street girl all the way.

Do you find now that you are presenting every weekday on STV, that people often ask you for fashion advice? Or even try to copy your style?

I have been totally overwhelmed by the lovely emails and text messages sent to The Hour by the viewers complimenting my clothes and asking where I shop. I just try to keep up with fashion but make sure I flatter my figure at the same time.

Apart from its shops, what do you love best about Glasgow?

I love the Glasgow people, I feel so safe and happy here. People walk by me in the street and say, “Oh, there’s our Michelle” and Hi Michelle, how are you?” It’s lovely that people feel like they know me. I’m a very lucky girl.

If you could change one thing about the city, what would it be?

Absolutely nothing, Glasgow is perfect.

If you only had 24 hours to live and you had to spend it in Glasgow, what would you do and where would you go?

I would start my day off by having a big breakfast and heading to Glasgow Green and visit the People’s Palace and have a cup of tea and a piece of cake in the Winter Gardens. I would then head over to the east end of Glasgow to visit my family and have lunch at Coia’s Café in Duke Street. I would then meet up with all my friends and head to the Merchant City for drinks. Then I would dance the night away on cocktails up in Sauchiehall Street finishing off with some chips and cheese in my beloved Shawlands. What a day.

My favourite places to…

Go for lunch:

Mulberry Street, Pollokshaws Road.

Go for dinner:

Café Gandolfi, Merchant City.

Go for a drink:

Go for a night out:

Even after 10 years it’s still The Shed in Shawlands.

Go for a spending spree:

Ooooh, that is a hard one but its got to be Silverburn.
