Describe your style... Nostalgic, free, easy.

Do you have a summer packing strategy? I pack jumpsuits and dresses to eliminate having a bunch of separates. Multi-purpose looks like swimsuits that double up as tops also help limit you to a carry on.

Style signatures: My beaded needle+thræd chokers and gold Ray-Ban Aviators. 

Favourite summer trend? Vintage non-stretch, mid-rise Levi's ; they never get baggy in unflattering areas like stretchy denim does. 

Failsafe shop? I love to thrift shop with my sisters outside of the city. Housing Works Thrift Shop is my favourite - I found my wedding dress there.

What makes you look like 'you'? My hair can transform to completely change my entire look; whether it's big and curly or slicked back in a bun.
