Style Profile: Amanda Montgomery from Latest Wrinkle

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!

Style Profile: Emilie Gagnon from Dear Emilie G

Emilie and I found each other on Instagram. It’s not everyday you meet a fellow curvy blogger in Ottawa, especially one that shares a similar style and philosophy about embracing your curves. It’s only fitting that I asked Emilie a few questions.

What’s your passion for fashion?

My passion for fashion started as a very young opinionated child who knew what she liked and what she didn’t and who always wanted to be a little bit different. As a curvy girl, it is through fashion that I have learned to love my body, with curves & all. Fashion is my creative escape and helps me express myself and empowers me to strive to be the best version of myself. My passion for fashion stems from the strength it gives me to take on every day with a smile…and a bit of sass!

What XLusive fashion tip can you share?

When going shopping, try on everything. Over time, we have set up rules in our mind deterring us from trying on clothes that we love but “can’t pull of”. You can pull off anything, you just need to love it! Time and time again, I go shopping with friends and family and they convince themselves that some cuts won’t look good on them. With a little push and shove, I make them try it on and they feel great in it. Just trying on something new can make you love yourself a little bit more…imagine how much that little bit accumulates over time!! #bodylove

Style Profile: Emmi Snicker

Mode XLusive Style Profile curvy plus size fashion blog Ottawa Montreal Toronto Canada Chantsy Chantal Sarkisian Emmi Snicker 1This is my total style crush, Emmi Snicker of Stockholm. I fell hard for her street style photos when I Googled “plus-size fashion blogger”. That’s how we met! I love this beauty’s style and how she rocks her curves, so I ask her a few questions.

Tell us a little bit about yourself. My name is Emmi Snicker and I’m currently living in the capital of Sweden, Stockholm, with my husband. I’m a 23 year old blogger and organic makeup artist. I also run a small company through my blog, besides my full-time office job. Otherwise I love to travel, watch documentaries and hang out with my family and friends!

What’s your passion for fashion? My interest for fashion and beauty started at an early age – I remember I had a small collection of eye shadows (blue, pink and silver) for school discos in the late 90s. I also loved girl bands, especially their makeup and clothes. Growing up, my mother had her own hair salon where I spent a few hours every day after school. I would wait for her to finish up, while I painted and played with hair accessories and looked through her look books. Since then, my interest in fashion and beauty has developed a lot. I hope to find a full time career in the fashion and beauty industry in the future!

What XLusive tip can you share? My style tips for a chic style is to invest in basic clothing – oh, I know it’s so boring and you’ve heard this tip a million times before – but you need to build a small base to work with. Once you have your basics, you can then add pieces with that bit of “extra” and voliá, you can now create hundreds of combinations with all your pieces!
