Girl of the Week: Katie Mogan

By day, the polished and effortlessly glam KATIE MOGAN is part of the Teldon Media Group. But by night this classic cutie hits the circuit with a cause. As a volunteer for the Beauty Night Society, we spotted her looking perfect (insert hint of jealously here) at a fundraising event. Ladies meet Katie, who we heart for being stylish and selfless.

Wearing…H&M lace corset and bubble skirt, GAP black peep-toe wedges, a silver choker with ribbon that was a gift, and a vintage black beaded clutch, which was a hand-me-down from my mother.

Top shops… In Vancouver: H&M, Anti-Hero, Browns, MK at Richmond Centre, and Holt Renfrew when there are sales. In Victoria: North of Wednesday, Rebel Rebel, Mysie, and Paradise.

What do you factor in when picking a party outfit… Do I LOVE IT? Where will I wear it? Should I throw a party just to justify the outfit? If the answer to the last question is “yes,” then I have to buy it.

Feel my best in… My pink, knit slippers and flannel pyjamas, or my Christian Louboutin shoes that took precedence over my rent last month.

I collect…Shoes, coats, dresses, and credit card debt.

Fashionably inspired by… Audrey Hepburn in “Funny Face”, Carrie Bradshaw in “Sex and the City,” particularly Season 6 in Paris, and Natalie Portman at most award shows.

Can’t live without… Chocolate, my local $5 sushi special, and a great conversation over wine.

Need it now… Sunshine! And an all-expenses paid trip to Paris.

Trend you want to see die off… Matching TNA / Juicy Couture velour sweat suits, UGGS, particularly when they are worn with flared Lululemon pants tucked into them, and Monogram bags.

What’s your happy colour… Can’t choose just one…pink (accessories), bright yellow (shoes), deep red (lipstick), and brown (chocolate desserts).

You’re talking about… The volunteer work that makes me feel warm and fuzzy…Beauty Night Society.

The best thing about volunteering with Beauty Night… Meeting different women each week and sharing stories over manicures and tea. My favourite moment happened two weeks ago, when one of the clients remembered my name from the week before, and said, “Katie, how was your week?” It felt wonderful.

  1. The Louboutins over rent statement reminds me of the SATC episode where Carrie goes “I spent $40,000 on shoes and I have no place to live?! I will literally be the old woman who lived in her shoes!” Katie seems sweet. 🙂

  2. Katie is SO sweet Lisa. I don’t pick faves, but if I did…she’d be right up there.

  3. i totally agree with lisa about the SATC comment! i love that katie is able to look so glam at such a reasonable price. great pick, for sure.

  4. I love that she’s not a total ‘label whore’. It takes true style to look chic at a reasonable price. I also agree with the whole TNA/Lulu/Ugg trend, blech just die already!

  5. Her sense of style proves that its not who you wear, but how you wear it. I agree, great pick!

  6. Katie is indeed sweet, smart and stylish. Not only is she able to shop on a budget, she looks smashing! She looks great and is a tremendous asset to Beauty Night Society! We are lucky to have her as a volunteer!

    Thank you for featuring Katie as your girl of the week.

  9. BTW, corsets are totally making a comeback. A la Madonna in the early 90’s? Saw lots on the Aritzia runway a few weeks ago.

  10. she looks like shenae grimes!

  11. is the dress a one piece? or is it a top and a skirt? she looks great at a reasonable price!
