As you may all (presumptuous, much?) have noticed by now, I was gone. What wait, you didn’t notice at all? SMH.
Kidding, not kidding. =)
First of all, I’m so sorry I have not posted for awhile. I know some of you have been checking regularly and have even came up to me at events and asked, what no posts, what happened? I truly appreciate that!
THE MAGNIFICENT GRAND PALAIS, PARIS
Secondly, I wanted to share with you guys that between July and August, we were in fact, away. Away to Europe! Can you believe that? I still can’t believe it myself! There’s so so much to to tell, so so little time but I promise, over the next little while, I will be sharing with you our #20YSTravel #Eurotrip2015 adventures. You can head over to our Instagram and Facebook page to see some preview. Europe, in one word, is MAGICAL.
But before I tell you all about it and believe me, I can go on and on about Paris, London, Dublin and everywhere in between… I have something else to share with you! Read on…
#ELLECANADAOOTD STREET STYLE HALL OF FAME: AUGUST 24 – 28
Last but not the least, I was featured at ELLE Canada for their #ELLECanadaOOTD Hall of Fame! How cool is that? This is such an honour and privilege and I couldn’t think of a better way to get back to blogging regularly here at www.twentyyork.com! ELLE Canada also featured me in their Instagram account, check here, so exciting! To read all about it and the rest of the fabulously stylish girls featured in the #ELLECanadaOTD article, click here. For an excerpt to my ELLE Canada feature, here’s the interview!
The girl: Marilou Moles aka @20YS
Home base: Ottawa
The gig: “Policy maker by day, fashion and lifestyle blogger by night, yoga teacher in between.” Wearing: “Banana Republic maxi, Aerosoles studded sandals, Parklane Jewelry earrings via Janique Simard-Ouellette, Le Chateau bracelets, Michael Kors watch.”
Why we love her now: Crimson is the perfect colour to add a little drama to any wardrobe.
CRIMSON LOVE AFFAIR IN THE FRENCH CAPITAL: THE CITY OF LOVE
Style philosophy: “No matter what you wear, OWN it!” The most prized possession in your closet: “My new leather jacket from the UK, a precious gift from my best friend Pearl.” Whose closet would you love to raid: “Kate Middleton’s! I came so close… I was at Kensington Palace in July!”
One fashion rule you live by: “It’s not about the clothes… It’s how you wear them!
The best part about summer fashion: It’s fun, it’s light and you can have a martini as your fashion accessory!”
I hope you guys enjoyed that feature! A BIG Thank you to ELLE Canada and Schill Madison for this truly lovely piece!
