I'd love for you to meet the newest Canadian cutie Sarah!
A brief description of your blog:
How long have you been blogging, and what made you start?
I am a newbie on the blogging scene I must admit. I put up my first post in December 2010, but didn’t start blogging consistently until the beginning of February 2011. I started because I wanted to join the fun, but also because my desktop was getting too damn cluttered and I needed a space to store all the things I came across that made me inspired. It’s like a infinite online mood board.
How would you describe your personal style?
Easy, Classic, Feminine but I love menswear! I will almost always be wearing at least one vintage/thrifted item. Love accessories!
Do you feel that you can relate better to fashion bloggers living in Canada? Or is there no difference?
I don’t feel much of a difference, however, I discovered that I stop looking at bloggers who live in warmer climates in the winter. I just can’t handle the jealousy! Plus I find it inspiring to see bloggers who are Canadian (or live in summer/winter climates) really take on the challenge of dressing for the season and making it work.
What store do you wish would open up in Canada?
My wish was answered this year when HBC announced they bought the Canadian franchise rights to TopShop.
Do you have any favourite Canadian designers/fashion brands?
I love Erdem Moralioglu (Erdem). The Prints! His prints are stunning. I love how his collections usually use quite classic lines, but still feel modern and feminine.
Who would you consider a true Canadian Fashion Icon?
Yasmin Warsame. She has had a very successful career, after choosing quite the unconventional path, and despite becoming an international success she still maintains her home in Toronto. A stunning and gracious person.
Aside from fashion blogging what do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
What’s spare time? Kidding, sort of. I am also a jewelry designer for Ginger by Sarah May, a contributing writer to FASHIONOTES.com, and am currently in the process of starting a new business (can’t reveal what it is just yet!). I am also a bit of a thrifting/vintage maniac, so I can usually be found at Value Village or a vintage boutique searching for treasures! I also love to host a good old fashioned girl’s DIY brunch now and then!
Do you have any other random thoughts or interesting things you would like to share about yourself?
People always think my last name is my middle name. I tend not to correct them cause I kind of like it.
