Toronto street style
Julia Che, President of Lotus Leaf Communications Inc.
What does style mean to you? Like writing, painting, talking or hand gestures, style is a form of expression. It’s about how I’m feeling that day or in that moment. Also, sometimes people are just drawn to things – it’s being brave that’s the challenge.
Define your personal style: I’d say eclectic… I love classic staples just as much as I love costume-vintage and new trend pieces. I like to try and change it up every day. Although I must admit, I’ll often wear the same things over and over (definitely a double-outfit offender!) I think I’m a chameleon – it depends on where I’m headed that day and how I’m feeling. It’s always important to feel comfortable and confident in what I’m wearing.
I feel naked without: My UGG Australia moccasin slippers – they’re more comfortable than bare feet! My Macbook Pro and one-of-a-kind leather PKG laptop sleeve. Black eyeliner and my blackberry.
Favorite part of Toronto? I can’t say I have one favourite spot. I’ve fallen in love with Harbourfront this summer, I love Dundas West, furniture shopping in the The Junction, Trinity Bellwoods Park, trekking in High Park… I’m discovering amazing new places every day this summer in Toronto.
