Fashionista Of The Month
– Margaux Zanetti –
1) We would love to get to know you more. Tell us a little bit about yourself.
My name is Margaux and I’m a Toronto lifestyle blogger as well as a full time student! I’ve always loved fashion and beauty, so a couple years ago, I started a blog with a friend; then, in 2013 we decided to each start our own blogs. My main goal when blogging is talking about topics that really interest me and connect with my readers. I think that staying authentic is really important when blogging, so I try to keep my brand as real as possible.
2) When did you first become interested in fashion?
Ever since I was young, I’ve been interested in fashion. I remember having one of those fashion sketchbooks for kids and drawing clothes onto them. In my early teens, I took sewing classes and made some pajama pants (that I still wear to this day!). My sister, mom, and I also used to watch What Not To Wear every single week. I decided not to go into fashion in university because I have other passions, but blogging offered me an outlet to share my love for fashion.
3) What is your favorite place to shop and why?
Lately, I’ve realized that I have enough pieces in my closet, so I shop a lot less than I used to. However, I love going to curated vintage stores (like Common Sort in Toronto) because I usually find pieces that I don’t already own. Jeans are a staple pieces in my wardrobe and I usually get them at Urban Outfitters or Topshop.
4) What is your must have accessory?
I don’t wear much jewelry, but every day, I wear the same four rings. My boyfriend gave me one of them a couple years ago, and the other three were made by my friend’s brand, Cadette Jewellery. Having those rings on makes me feel more put together for some reason.
5) What is your favorite season and why?
Spring is definitely my favorite season. Flowers and trees are coming back to life and everyone is in such a good mood. It’s also a great season for fashion because you don’t have to be super bundled up, but can still wear a couple layers.
6) Who is your main fashion inspiration?
I spend most of my day on Instagram and I don’t really wear one specific style of clothing, so I get inspiration through all of the fab ladies that I follow!
7) What does your typical day look like?
Being a university student, my days vary a lot. However, in the morning I usually wake up, do my skincare routine, have a healthy breakfast, and get ready for the day. If I don’t have class, I like going to cafes to get work done; I might invite friends to come join me for a bit too. Then, I’ll go home, make dinner, do some more work, and end the night watching a TV show or YouTube videos.
8) What are your future goals, in general?
One of my goals with blogging is to educate people about green beauty. I made the switch to all natural makeup, skincare, shampoo, and other products over two years ago and it was one of the best decisions I ever made. I feel like green beauty hasn’t been cool until lately and I want to help educate people on the importance of knowing the ingredients going on your skin and in your body.
9) What makes you feel beautiful?
A good outfit will always make me feel confident and I think that confidence is one of the most beautiful traits on a woman. A simple white tee with high waisted jeans and sneakers is a classic for me that I can dress up or down for any occasion.
10) What makes your heart beat?
My pets; I have a cat at my apartment and a dog back home. Although I’m a huge dog lover (I will pet any dog in sight), my cat just has a littly sassy personality that I love. No matter what’s going on during the day, my pets will always cheer me up.
