One part pretty young thing, one part punk pixie, this graphic designer and advertising whiz—she’s head of marketing at Toronto’s Ashlar Urban Realty Inc.—is just as comfortable in her signature minis and towering wedges as she is on her (brand new) motorcycle. The platinum blond Torontonian has a precise eye that helps her zero in on beguiling vintage picks paired with unmentionables by Mark Fast. Herewith, a crash course on her mix-and-match aesthetic.
Designer loyalty: “Cynthia Vincent handbags and Speech jewellery.”

Savoury spot: “Woodlot because they have a vegetarian menu and are higher end than most places that cater to vegetarians; Enoteca Sociale because the food is incredible.”

Summer wish: “To get out of town and into the wilderness or to the beach as much as possible.”

Currently coveting: “I have a motorcycle so I’m interested in gear that is fashionable and cute as well as functional—obviously an excuse for a new leather jacket and leather boots!”

Festival look: “I’m headed to Osheaga again this year and I typically dress up. Last year I wore towering Zara wedges the entire weekend, a vintage Comrags bra top, a lace transparent vintage dress from 69 Vintage with Mark Fast undies underneath and leather and metal accessories.”

Signature scent
: “Nina Ricci’s Love by Nina.”

Closet staples
: “Black high-heeled boots and shoes, lacy lingerie, Voilà seam stockings and A Moveable Feast leather jacket.”

Hair story
: “Luca at Tonyc Salon & Spa.”

Beauty essentials: “Dr. Bronner’s unscented baby soap, black liquid liner, olive oil.”
