Thrifty Luxe: Ruby Scanlon on ANZAC Day

Published On May 2, 2013 | By Bernadette Ashley | Thrifty Luxe

Illustrator Ruby Scanlon’s ANZAC Day nod to the fallen was a crown of scarlet remembrance poppies on her glorious red locks, typically striking a balance between ethereal and understated with her signature look (feminine, yet practical, with a Bohemian flourish). When on barista duty at Townsville hipster haunt The Sweatshop, Ms Scanlon invariably knows how to rock the one accessory which costs nothing, but is the most effective of all – a winning smile.
