And while Jacky favours smart dresses for her job as operations manager at the charity, Action for Children, she used to have a very different work wardrobe.
Jacky, who is originally from London but now lives in Airdrie, spent three years in the army serving in Germany, followed by a stint at the MoD in Whitehall, London and in Northern Ireland.
She dedicated another 18 years to the Territorial Army and became the first female Warrant Officer in her unit, the 88 Postal & Courier Royal Logistic Corps. She even served in Bosnia and the Gulf.
WHAT'S YOUR FAVOURITE OUTFIT AT THE MOMENT AND WHY?
I have a flowery shift dress I bought on eBay that I have worn a couple of times and particularly like. It's from Oasis and cost £33. (white with blue and pink flowers, Jacky is pictured with it on the opposite page). Also a black and silver dress from H&M, which I wear with a black cardigan from the Barras (main picture).
DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE?
I didn't realise that I had any to speak of, but most of the girls comment on my outfits most days, so I must be doing something right.
I take this as a big compliment as I am older than most of them by at least 10 years
WHERE DO YOU SHOP IN GLASGOW?
The Barras market. You can get almost anything you want, you just have to have a good look.
You can go for a wander but the best bit is if you go in near the loos and go up the stairs into a bit where there's a cafe on the left – that's where the second-hand clothes are.
I like rummaging. It's the fun of finding something.
WHAT'S YOUR FAVOURITE SHOP IN THE WORLD?
Dollydagger in Brighton.
WHAT'S THE MOST EXPENSIVE ITEM IN YOUR WARDROBE?
An outfit I bought in India when I went to the wedding of my sister's friend.
It is a two-piece skirt and top and is all hand-sewn crystal.
It cost about £100 but would have cost a lot more if I had bought it here (long dress in black with with flowerspictured far right).
WHAT'S YOUR BIGGEST BARGAIN?
A 50p dress from a market in Pattaya, Thailand (blue dress pictured hanging up, above) or my £3 Jean Paul Gaultier denim jacket.
WHOSE STYLE DO YOU ADMIRE?
None of the "Barbie doll" types but people with individuality like Lily Allen, Madonna and Lady Gaga.
ANY FASHION DISASTERS?
Mostly when I was young and not sure of what suited me. I wouldn't wear something just because it was fashionable, like puff-ball skirts or harem pants.
HOW HAS YOUR STYLE CHANGED OVER THE YEARS?
When I was in the Army and the TA I was in uniform and dressed like a boy most of the time, so when I got out of uniform I liked to look like a girl.
I wouldn't go over the top, though we came off exercise one time and I went straight in the shower and smothered myself in body lotion while everybody else went straight to eat.
WHAT WAS YOUR LAST PURCHASE?
I bought a dress for work from eBay for £24.99.
WHAT'S ON YOUR SHOPPING LIST FOR AUTUMN?
A decent pair of wellies.
ARE YOU A HOARDER OR AN OFFLOADER?
A hoarder. I have two full wardrobes and stuff stashed all over the house.
IF YOU HAD TO SAVE ONE ITEM FROM YOUR WARDROBE IN A FIRE, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
My Indian wedding outfit. I could replace most of the other things but that is a one-off.
WHAT WOULD YOU MOST LIKE TO HAVE IN YOUR WARDROBE?
A pair of Jimmy Choo shoes. I don't think they would fit me though as I have big feet – I'm a size 8.
SHARE A FASHION SECRET?
Wear what makes you feel good and get a decent bra.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE GLASGOW STYLE?
A bit like its architecture – some of it should not be in the public eye. That said, some people look amazing, eye-catching and unique, though.
HOW MANY PAIRS OF SHOES DO YOU HAVE AND WHERE ARE THEY FROM?
About 50. Many are from New Look, including some nice leopard print heels (pictured) but I also have pairs from Kurt Geiger, Nine West, Timberland, Ben Sherman and Jones The Bootmaker and some from Spain.
WHAT ABOUT HANDBAGS?
I'm not a big handbag fan. I tend to have one until it falls to pieces.
The current one is from Pure at Glasgow Forge – £12.99 in the sale – though my daughters-in-law have tried to get me to part with it.
