Meet Dorothy

Meet Dorothy

 Dorothy

My name is Dorothy and I was born and raised in Montreal.  I grew up wearing hand-me-downs and was forced to settle for linty ribbed white V-neck shirts and hideously-washed boot cut jeans from I don’t know where.  It was only when I was 16 and working my first job at the local McDonald’s that I began my serious rampage in the name of fashion.  This is not to say that I am now extremely stylish.  I’m just a poor student who will strive to be fashionable for the rest of my life.  Even the richest of the rich never quite seem to reach “fashion nirvana” as I like to put it.  Our daily lives do not resemble the heavily Photoshopped ads in Vogue, and we will never look as cool walking down the bus aisles as that model does strutting down the runway.  But it is for these very reasons that I continue to love this art – the romanticism in fashion is what keeps me begging for more.

 

Fashion Type: Sacrificing comfort for style is what I do. Heels, tight skirts, belts…I’ll wear anything if it makes me feel more feminine.  Here’s what’s at the top of my wish-list at the moment:

 

Burberry

Meet Kim

Meet Kim

While I would like to say that my love of fashion began the minute I exited the womb, and that as a toddler I refused to play with anyone who did not posses an acute ability to brilliantly interplay fabric textures, I cannot make that assertion because I would be lying. Truth be told, when it comes to the vast and crazy world of fashion I am a novice. I cannot spot a fake burberry tote from a mile away (some knockoffs are reallygood) and I have yet to master the art of walking in shoes over 2 inches high. Despite these amateurish shortcomings, the fact of the matter is, I love clothes. I can spend hours browsing fashion sites or perusing an old Harper’s Bazaar issue for the hundredth time admiring the versatility, creativity and art that is fashion design. I’ll consider it a fantastic day if I can unearth a quality piece from the sale rack or from a pile of ‘stuff’, and I assume winning the lottery must feel something like restoring life to an old and over-worn garment by simply pairing it with the unthinkable (though winning the lottery would be much better, I won’t pretend otherwise).

Fashion Type: In short, my style is comfortable and minimalist, I prefer skirts to pants, and I think more men should wear scarves.

Things I like:

ACNE 

H&M

Birds on a dress? I am sold.
