How would you describe Mtl’s style? Montreal is an ecclectic mix of hipster and laissez-faire. Montrealers also try to transcend time in their style. When people say 'the 80s are so in right now', it's not true, all of history is in. Look at my dress, it's kind of 40s inspired. You see 1920s pumps, the 50s pencil skirt, chunky 60s patterns...

What’s your favourite expression? "Get outta town"
Describe your style: I usually wear neutrals and earth tones, nothing flashy but i try to be eye-catching. i'd call it classic cut with a little edge, feminine, nostalgic, romantic...
Where do you find your inspiration? For clothes?! Ha! It doesn't really work that way.
What can’t you live without? well, a little affection from time to time. but if you mean style-wise, i have a tiger's eye ring that's pretty sentimental.
How do you organize your closet? From left to right: jackets, sweaters, shirts, blouses, dresses, skits, pants. It seems to me a rational progression.
What's going to be hot next season: "Exposed backs: Clevage is out, spine is in."
Tell us a secret: under the dress in the picture, i'm wearing a really cute blue slip i bought at village de valeur.
