The Edmonton fashion blogging scene continues to grow, and up-and-comer Marie a la Mode is getting lots of love. She's only been blogging for six months, but has tons of posts from her favourite skin care products to her movie-date outfits. Her girl-next-door ensembles and quirky comments have charmed Marie a la Mode onto the Dress Me Dearly blog roll - permanently. And best of all, she's a fellow Edmontonian!!
Lucky for us, Marie agreed to share some insight into her fashion-filled mind.
What inspired your blogging career?
Other bloggers inspired me to start my own. I read blogs for a couple of years before I said to myself, “I can do that too!” and took the plunge. I love writing, fashion, the fine arts, cosmetics, entertainment and photography, and blogging is a great way to share these passions.
What do you love most about blogging?
Having a creative outlet to pour my energy into and meeting other bloggers from all over the world.
How would you describe your personal style?
It’s hard to describe. I guess I would say classic and comfortable, but sometimes with a bit of an edge.
What fashion item do you hate to see on Edmontonians?
Skinny, way-too-tight jeans on teenage boys. I don’t understand the whole Emo look!
Favourite place to shop in Edmonton?
H & M.
Blogs you’re loving right now?
There are so many! I love fashion blogs like Sabo Skirt, Leeselooks, Quality Rivets, Cheap Thrills, Late Afternoon and Zanita. Other blogs I visit daily are My Little Photographs, This Free Bird, High Kicks and High Hopes and Feaverish Photography Blog.
Favourite item in your closet?
Oh how do I choose? I’ll say my long, brown, chunky, knit cardigan I got from Forever 21 for 30 bucks! It’s so comfy and cozy - great for Edmonton winters - and goes with anything.
I’m a trained actor and get some professional work here and there, but not enough to pay the bills. My dream job would be acting full-time and working with amazing directors, writers and producers every day!
If you had a bottomless pit of cash, what would you fill your closet with?
Shoes and bags!
