As you may (or may not) know, I was born in Canada – on the East side in Montreal. It’s a gorgeous little Parisian-style town with fabulous food, fashion, streets to get lost in for hours and more culture than you can shake a stick at.
It also happens to be home to one of the most fabulous fellow bloggers I know, Miss Cynthia of Flight of the Fat Girl.
When I booked my plane ticket home, I knew I had to reach out to her and see if she’d like to meet up. She obliged. I was thrilled.
Cynthia’s style is so fantastically edgy-meets-feminine-with-a-dash-of-rockstar … a perfect complement to my off-duty-princess look. Because of this, I came up with the idea for a blog called “style me.” We met up at the always awesome Addition Elle and took on our mission: to style each other in our styles.
What I loved most about this day (from a sartorial point of view) is that I got to see fashion through her eyes and try things I wouldn’t have tried before. It was so interesting to hear Cynthia talk about what she loved about certain items versus others and why she put together what she did for me.
She styled me in a very street look – an awesome pair of boyfriend jeans (with plaid patches showing through), a very edgy sequin top with zipper detail and a cool-girl-meets-chic baseball jacket that worked perfectly.
I was thrilled to dress her in an ultra girly look with a tweed a-line skirt with a mauve tank and a leather waterfall cardigan… tres jolie, non?!
I can’t wait to meet up with Miss Cynthia again the next time I’m in town! And a huge thank you shout out to the team at Addition Elle Fairview in Pointe-Claire, Quebec for hosting us and letting us have a ton of fun! If you’re not following Cynthia, correct that right away by checking out her fabulous blog, Flight of the Fat Girl. She also wrote about our little meet-up, so head over there to hear her side of it and see more pictures (including one of me in my signature jump!)
