Girl of the Week: Lily Nguyen

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.

Dream shopping date:I can’t decide… Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Style Director of US Elle Kate Lanphear, Fashion Director of Paris Vogue Emmanuelle Alt and/or Emmanuelle’s assistant Geraldine Saglio.

  1. Her belt reminds me of the one Sarah Jessica Parker wore in the SATC movie. (And as an aside, I have a similar one because I found a replica version at Buffalo marked down to practically nothing.) 🙂

  2. Another great GOTW! Def jealous if she gets a Gucci discount!It is always a presumption that people from the world of haute labels is gonna be head to toe dripping in nothing but luxury but it is sweet to see a mix up – that is truly great style and awesome shopping sense.

  3. GO LIL!
    you look awesome 🙂

  4. Love the outfit! She seems like a pretty cool person.
