I love when Amanda & I discover new bloggers and especially when they’re from Montreal ;) So awhile back we came across the blog Lapiz of luxury and just fell in love with Katia’s style! We’re happy that she agreed to answer a couple of questions about fashion and don’t forget to go visit the blog at http://www.lapizofluxury.com/ ;)
J’adore quand Amanda et moi découvrons de nouveaux blogueurs de mode Montréalais ;) Il y’a quelque temps, nous sommes tombées sur le blog Lapiz of luxury et sommes tombées en amour avec le style de Katia! On est contentes qu’elle a accepté de répondre à quelques questions sur la mode, et n’oubliez pas de visiter son blog http://www.lapizofluxury.com ;)
1) How would you describe your style?
My style is very diverse and eclectic. Yes, I love to follow trends but I always make sure to purchase my trends at an affordable price (which is the whole idea behind my blog http://www.lapizofluxury.com) and to mix them with my luxury items. Most importantly, at the end of the day, I am all about comfort.
2) What are your favorite trends this season?
I am currently obsessed with the slip-ons/Birkenstock. I remember when they first came out a couple of years ago, I wasn’t very keen about them, but when comfort is in the game I will for sure be sold :)
3) Any trends that you are completely over?
I follow trends but if I like it I will continue wearing it even though it’s over. I prefer mixing it up within my personal style and making it my own. One thing I am over is the legging trend. Leggings are not pants people ;)
4) The one item every woman should have?
Every woman should own a nice black pump. Adds the element of class to any outfit.
5) Heels or flats? Why?
I would say it depends on my mood. I could do heels at work and then slip on some flats for a nice dinner or the opposite. It’s all about the moment :)
6) What is your go-to outfit?
Right now, on the weekends, I take advantage of my ultimate comfort look: ripped jeans, a comfy tee and slip-ons or my Converse sneakers.
7) Can you name some of your favorite shopping destinations?
Zara, H&M, BCBGMaxAzria, Gap and little Montreal boutiques but the ultimate shopping finds are in Europe. The best is when I have the chance to go to Paris or Barcelona and literally raid the place. I relate a lot to the European style and their boutiques are so diverse.
8) Who is your style icon?
I don’t have a specific style icon but I gather a lot of inspiration from Instagram. One thing I know for sure is that my fashion obsession comes from my grandmother who had stacks of Vogue’s at her house.
9) Any Montreal designers that you enjoy?
I really enjoy Eve Gravel and the eclectic side of Denis Gagnon.
