Introduction

Headline:

personal stylist for humans + homes

I am a(n):

designer costumer jeweller milliner sewer merchandiser home decorator event stylist thrifter collector sucker for sunsets lipstick lover natural wine enthusiast mermaid without fins Toronto Raptors fan European

I know a lot about:

#style #details #accessories #jewelry #clothing #homedecor #film #costumes #thrifting #design #art

I am the go-to for:

style tips, home decor tips, where to shop, what to mix + match, colour combinations, pattern combinations, how to accessorize, how to dress for a particular event, how to pack for a special trip

I can help you:

  • revamp your wardrobe
  • revamp your home
  • let me shop for signature pieces on your behalf
  • add more layers to your look
  • add more meaning to your look
  • redefine yourself
  • be more detail-oriented
  • let me design + curate your look completely
  • revamp your business

Why me:

I want to work with what you already have, always focusing on what can be recycled first. if we get to the point where we feel the need to add certain pieces to complete or enhance your look, I have a strict rule of only shopping at local boutiques and/or second-hand shops. I try not to support fast fashion by choosing to support local + independent designers instead, as well as proving that you can find super cool thrift pieces.

we all get dressed every day. why not make it a fun process, and allow it to enhance how we feel about ourselves and how we present ourselves to the world? fashion can seem trendy and ever-evolving, but if you choose pieces that make you FEEL good, you will LOOK good. (and when you look and feel good, you DO good.)

About

My story:

I studied fashion + costume in school. I've worked in retail, creating window displays + dressing mannequins. I've worked in film, curating wardrobe + set design. I've collected many valuable lessons in style + styling throughout my academic + professional endeavours. but most importantly, I know the joy that bringing together the perfect look, for the perfect occasion (or no occasion at all), can bring. I've deeply thought about what creates that magic and why it feels so good, and I want to provide that for other women.
