Dirtty Glam.
Wow. I feel so blessed.
When the AMAZING Alie, editor in chief of the Parisian Dirrtyglam e-mailed me about "la bloggeuse du mois" (blogger of the month) my heart melted.
You can find the interview HERE. GO TO PAGE 95!
Words cannot express my graciousness.
xo.
***Translation: (yikes, It is quite long. Please don't feel obliged to read it:) )***
Briefly introduce yourself.
My name is Lisa Holowaychuk, I’m 23 and live in Cape Town, South Africa. It was quite the journey that brought me here, but to sum it up in one word: love. I’ve been here for almost 4 years, but still claim Canada as my roots. I started studying Social Work and was about to finish my degree, when at the end of last year realized I was not fully pursuing my passion; fashion. Therefore I changed directions, followed my heart and went full speed ahead. I am now studying Consumer Science with Specialization in Clothing Management with the hopes of styling in the near future.
When did you first start blogging?
I started at the end of August after following a plethora of blogs for months! It was my internship in New York, this past summer, which provided me with the inspiration to pursue my own.
How would you define your style?
I really don’t think I have a definite style, or if I do I don’t know what to call it. I’m really bad with putting something in a box, although I am constantly drawn to masculine pieces. Their cut, the freedom they possess and their strange ability to instill strength in me. So I guess to sum it up, I would say I’m one part masculine, one part feminine, mixed in with a whole lot of me!
What can we find in your closet?
Heaps of simple basics (American apparel), denims- skinnies and boyfriend style (which I adore), above the knee skirts, an obscene amount of denim shorts, grey cropped hoodies, tailored black pants, blazers, vintage rocker tees, plaid shirts, leather jackets and skirts and heaps of stolen button-ups from my boyfriend.
A fashion piece that every girl should own?
Two black leather jackets. One short, shrunken one for summer/evening wear and the other a tad roomier so more bulk can be added underneath, during the winter months.
Who’s your fashion icon and why?
WOW, I simply cannot narrow it down to one, so here are my tops: Natasha Poly, Véronique Didry, James Dean, Clémence Poésy and of course my ultimate style icon- Emmanuelle Alt. They all possess/possessed true beauty and passion which is a constant inspiration. I’m drawn to each one during different periods of my life. As my ever-changing emotions develop and the personal growth of my inner self ensues I look towards these individuals for that little bit of spark to propel me forwards.
What’s your most recent purchase?
A pair of killer Topshop booties, Michael Kor “slicker” boots, Ray Ban Clubmasters, my first pair of leggings and silver/black metallic pants.
Which character from a movie had the best style?
I truly don’t think anyone can beat the utter class and elegance of Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly. I think her character still possesses a touch of magic, as it continues to inspire females around the globe.
Also being a self-professed 80’s junkie, I can’t help but love Molly Ringwald in her countless array of 80’s features; most notably Pretty in Pink and Sixteen Candles.
What is going to be your fall/winter essential or trend?
Items on my list: long leather gloves, a green military parka, black buckle Frye’s, big chunky 80’s ski sweaters, a faux-fur hat, suede ankle booties, acid wash denim skirt, a chunky black watch and a massive knit scarf.
Your view on the Paris Fashion Week?
Paris fashion week for me is enchanting, alluring and exudes a passion that is un-definable. It’s not only about top designers, the next trend, or who is sitting in the front row. It is the blood, sweat and tears that go into each item that makes its way down the glorious, Parisian catwalk. The passion that these designers and their teams posses, is what inspires me. All of this being showcased in one of the most beautiful cities of the world just adds to the greatness that envelops this sparkling event.
I’m also terribly obsessed with Paris street style, not only during Fashion Week, but 365 days of the year!
What are your daily blogs?
Oh my, it is a mission to name them all, and I don’t want to leave anyone out, because I think all of the bloggers are amazing and so special in their own unique way. It’s truly inspiring to see so many stylish individuals share, support and inspire each other. But some of my daily’s which I’ve followed from the start include:
iamashleigh, karlascloset, Knightcat, mydailystyle, becauseimaddicted, girlmeetsnyc, starbucksandjaneausten, insideam-lulscloset, itsherfactory, fashiontoast, vanillascented, fashionchalet, childhoodflames and ponyryder. Ah, I hate leaving people out!
What’s on your iPod right now?
I would not be able to function without music, on my playlist: Stars, Bloc Party, Tegan and Sara, The Strokes, MGMT, Metric, Sufjan Stevens, Bryan Adams, 80’s tunes, Arcade Fire, Matt Redman… the list goes on and on.

Susanna-Cole said...

Awww congrats my dear on being featured! You so deserve it, cause you, your blog and your style are oh so so so amazing! Fantastic interview (I read it all! ;)) and I was felt so special when you mentioned my blog, you're too sweet, and I'm so flattered you like my blog, because well as you said there's a LOT of amazing blogs out there! ;)

And ah, we always seem to leave each other with the problem of having no words of thanks, because really you are sooo kind, most the time I am speechless and can't think of what to say in return to such complete kindness! And since you were complimenting on the topic of humility and confidence, I must say though, I think you are one of the rare people whom I know who really seems to possess both a confidence and complete humbleness as well, and I really admire that :)

Anyway I better go, I'm typing with my eyes closed now because I'm so tired, and well, I'm thinking blind typing might not be the best way to go! :P Hope you're have a fantabulous (not a word, I know :P) weekend... or end of weekend! ;)

xoxo,
S-C

geri said...

So cool!!! I feel so honored that you mentioned my blog!!

Stompface said...

Thanks for your sweet as pie comments little lady.

Is that access database you are learning? Yeah that program is pretty crazy. I don't understand it really, but use it a little bit.

Oh and no on the swimwear front. Well I spent all Saturday searching boutique after boutique for bathers. But no luck. Perth has nothing seriously. It makes me cry. I really want a one piece zimmermann, or the one piece by one teaspoon, that's all wild and tie dyed.

Oh well.

Have an amazing week.

Ben istanbuldan selda 22 yaşında konfeksiyon içşisiyim Amatör Porno sizleri bekletmeden hemen hikayeme geçiyorum.. Biz 5 katlı bir binanın en üst katında yaşıyorduk ve bir öğlen paydosunda sevgilim beni Anal Sikiş aradı evdeydim çünkü evle iş yerim arasında 2 dakika bile yoktu.. Bende Asyalı Porno sevgilime benden telefon beklemesini söyledikten sonra evin durumuna baktım evde kardeşlerim ve annemin Esmer Porno birkaçtane arkadaşı vardı bu iş imkansızdı tekrardan düşündüm ve çatı katı aklıma geldi sevgilime telefon açıp çatıya çıkmasını ve Fantazi Porno beni beklemesini söyledikten sonra telefonu bir süre elime almadım anneme işe gidiyorum dedikten sonra Gay Porno hemen üst kata çatıya çıkıp sevgilimin
dudaklarına yumuldum az bir süremiz Götten Sikiş vardı ve çok istiyordum onu hemen önünde diz çöküp sikini çıkardım kocaman olmuştu bile... Özlemişti beni HD Porno bitanem başladım sikini yalamaya kafasını öpüyor onu çıldırtıyordum sevgilim saçlarımdan tutmuş ağzımı keyifle sikerken çatı katının kapısı açıldı toparlanamadan Lezbiyen Porno komşunun şişman oğlu efecan gelmişti ben dizlerimin üzerinde sevgilimin Liseli Porno siki ağzımda yakalanmıştım hemen bu halimizi gören komşu oğlu Sarışın Sikiş kaçarcasına gitti.. Sevgilim bir süre güldükten Türbanlı Porno sonra bu şişko neden kaçtı korktu herhalde onu sikicem sandı galiba dedikten sonra bir kahkaha daha attı ben sevgilimin Türk Porno sikine deli gibi saldırıyor yalıyor emiyordum boşalmasını istiyor Zenci Porno sütünü içmek istiyordum sevgilim ağzımı sike sike boşaldı hepsini yuttum bir damlasını ziyan Porno etmedim ve sevgilimle vedalaşıp ayrıldık... Ben her defasında sikiş yapmadan önce yazporno diye olan türkçe siteden Porno izle bölümüne girip seyrediyorum azdıktan sonra şahane sikiş ile gözleri kamaştırıyorum.
