I’ve known of ALICIA QUAN through her blog and Twitter for a few months now. Just recently she completed an amazing feat called the “30 for 30 challenge” where she picked 30 items of clothing from her wardrobe and had to create new outfits/looks from those 30 pieces for 30 days (something I probably couldn’t do). When she’s not blogging or tweeting, she is the Online Marketing Specialist for Plum’s Design Department. She also teaches preschoolers how to dance (how sweet is that?). Ladies, meet Alicia.
Wearing…Aritzia tank top, Kersh cardigan, H&M skirt and bracelets, Joe Fresh sandals, and Marc by Marc Jacobs watch
My personal style is…Romantic girlie meets silly fun and joins forces with classic chic.
Most-enduring piece…A bubble gum pink Marc Jacobs envelope clutch that was my first designer handbag purchase.
Favourite accessory…I have a necklace from London that says Hello? with a little rotary telephone below. It’s a great conversation piece and it’s special to me because it’s from my trip to the UK.
Wardrobe staples…I have a closet full of dresses and they are such a staple in the summer heat.
Next purchase…My shopping ban finished this week, so I’ve been thinking about this for quite some time! I’ve decided that I want to invest in a fabulous pair of boots this fall and a unique winter coat…the Vancouver essentials!
Beauty routine…I’ve always been very simple when it comes to any sort of beauty routine, and by simple I mean that I don’t really have one. My nana stressed the importance of moisturizing your face every morning and night though, so I do make sure that I do that!
One thing every girl should have…Confidence. No matter what you’re wearing, if you don’t have the confidence to back it up then it’s never going to work!
Go-to Look…I’m obsessed with the high waist in everything from pants to skirts.
Worn-out items…My boyfriend blazers and Mavi Serena Denim Leggings are going to need a break soon, I wear them way too often!
Three items in my bag…My camera, iPod, and agenda! I couldn’t possibly survive without them.
Guilty pleasure…Right now it’s watching MTV’s Teen Mom. I don’t usually get sucked into reality tv but I’m super hooked!
