This week’s Girl of the Week, LILY NGUYEN is a Vancouver-based Calgary-raised style maven who runs her own blog called Bleed for Fashion. A graduate of Blanche Macdonald, Lily can now be found at the Gucci boutique at the Fairmont Hotel (900 West Georgia Street, Vancouver, 604-488-0320) keeping us fully-stocked in our designer Gucci gear.
What I’m wearing: Vintage biker jacket, American Apparel tank and skirt, Streets Ahead Roger Belt, Chanel necklace and Aldo Spana Boots.
Favourite shopping spots: Gucci, Chanel, Holt Renfrew, Blubird, American Apparel, H&M and various online shops.
Favourite outfit in the closet: Do shoes count? If so, then it would have to be my Christian Louboutin Forever Tina Boots my boyfriend got me for Christmas.
Who/what inspires my style: Fashion blogs and regular people on the street. My top three blogs are Fashion Toast, Jak & Jill and The Sartorialist.
Must have beauty item: RevitaLash Eyelash Conditioner. It’s a miracle in a bottle I swear. Huge thanks to the fabulous Vivian Ko from Wink Beauty Lounge for recommending it!
Last purchase: It’s non-fashion related, but a Nikon D60 Digital Camera that I’m still waiting to be shipped. Prior to that, Chanel Shiny Patent Calfskin Large Tote Bag.
Next purchase: Not sure. I’ve purchased too much already! But possibly that Gucci biker jacket I can’t stop staring at whenever I’m at work.
Top styling tips: Fashion over comfort. Ha, I’m totally kidding (kind of). Stick to the basics and build your outfit from there. Also, mix your highs and lows. I’m a firm believer in diverse sourcing.
Favourite magazines: Vogue and Japanese fashion magazines.
