Introduction

Headline:

personal stylist for humans + homes

I am a(n):

designer | jeweller | milliner | sewer | merchandiser | home decorator | event planner | thrifter | collector | lipstick enthusiast | sucker for sunsets | mermaid without fins | European

I am the go-to for:

style tips, home decor tips, where to shop, what to mix + match, colour combinations, pattern combinations, how to accessorize, how to dress for a particular event, how to pack for a special trip

What I do:

my passions revolve around story-telling, attention to detail and giving everything a personal touch. constantly reinventing wardrobes + redecorating spaces. discovering new thrift shops + local boutiques, as well as local designers. curating jewelry + clothing collections. working in costume + set design for film, music videos + photo shoots. playing with pieces and using them for unintended uses. making custom requests for personal purchases or altering/adding to them after the fact. experimenting with other crafts and stimulating my brain with creative challenges. always looking to collaborate with other creative individuals, and taking on internships to continue my growth both an artist + human being, as well as adding new skill sets to my repertoire.

About

Why me:

I want to work with what you already have, always focusing on what can be recycled first. if we get to the point where we feel the need to add certain pieces to complete or enhance your look, I have a strict rule of only shopping at local boutiques and/or second-hand shops. I try not to support fast fashion by choosing to support local + independent designers instead, as well as proving that you can find super cool thrift pieces.

we all get dressed every day. why not make it a fun process, and allow it to enhance how we feel about ourselves and how we present ourselves to the world? fashion can seem trendy and ever-evolving, but if you choose pieces that make you FEEL good, you will LOOK good. (and when you look and feel good, you DO good.)

A little bit about myself:

I studied fashion + costume in school. I've worked in retail, creating window displays + dressing mannequins. I've worked in film, curating wardrobe + set design. I've collected many valuable lessons in style + styling throughout my academic + professional endeavours. but most importantly, I know the joy that bringing together the perfect look, for the perfect occasion (or no occasion at all), can bring. I've deeply thought about what creates that magic and why it feels so good, and I want to provide that for other women.

  • owner + designer, for jewellery + clothing at Hustle + Heart
  • merchandiser at Little Dream, Vancouuver
  • visual merchandiser + seasonal department lead at Crate & Barrel, Vancouver + Edmonton
