The other day, I was reminded by my dear friend Katie (from Yow City Style) to just go for it! I am a go-getter by nature (obvi… have you read the rest of my blog!), but sometimes I am reminded of what it feels like to be rejected and so I avoid doing things. Well, I put myself out there and finally reached out to my curvy crush Amanda of Latest Wrinkle in Toronto, because I wanted to feature her in my Style Profile series. Well, guys, she got back to me! I wonder if I swayed her by dopping the “I’m also from T.O.” line! hahaha
I highly urge you to check out her Instagram as well… this woman knows what she is doing!
What’s your passion for fashion?
Style has always intrigued me. Fashion is the form of art that I most relate to. I love nothing more than storytelling by styling unique pieces together, playing with lines, silhouettes, and colour stories. What truly brings me the most joy is finding new ways to style something that’s been in my closet for years.
What XLusive tip can you share?
My favourite ‘tip’ that I have learned over the years, isn’t really a ‘tip’ at all, it’s actually to forget rules all together! Find what you love, what makes you exited and feel beautiful, and forget everything you have been told, and just rock it!
Oh also, print mixing makes life more enjoyable!
Stay Social with Amanda!

She looks great! Awesome interview, Chantal! Love that she doesn’t follow any rules. #RulesAreForSuckers
Thanks Dom! I think rules are good for people who are not confident or need styling advice. But for the pros… no rules are necessary! Thanks for reading xox C
