I haven’t had the pleasure of meeting JESS as she is currently studying in Vienna. However, I first came to know Jess through her Toronto-based style blog Wild Tortoise. Jess is a business student who is addicted to shopping and has a love for shoes that rivals my own obsession (hence why we get along so well). I love her blog which features two of my most favourite things in life: fashion and food. She loves pistachio gelato, Brandon Boyd and has an amazing sense of style. Ladies meet Jess.
