Girl of the Blogosphere: Christie

Name: Christie Ressel

City: Toronto, Ontario

Occupation: International Image Consultant/Stylist

Who is your fashion inspiration?
There are so many it's hard to choose! I adore Audrey Hepburn, Victoria Beckham, and Rachel Zoe. All three have their own unique style but are classy. I love their sleek appearances. I can't get enough of all things 70's too. So glamourous!

What is one thing you always carry in your bag?
Mac Lip Glass and oversized sunnies. Don't leave home without them ladies!

What is your current favourite fashion trend?
The revival of the 70's! Woot! I JUST ordered a pair of bellbottoms. That's right -- I don't care if people think they're too big a I'll still rock them. Outfit post to come soon for that one! Tee hee ;)

What is the current trend you dislike the most?
Not so much a "current" trend -- just something women do in general -- UGGS ARE AWFUL. I tell clients I style all the time how terrible they make you look. They make your legs look stumpy and they are not stylish. They look like you're wearing loaves of bread on your feet. *shudders*

Why did you start your blog?
Well, I have my professional styling site that I also blog on -- but I wanted to do a personal one just to air my thoughts on style, fashion, and also source some outfit ideas/pieces for the fab women out there. There is so much inspiration designers draw from -- it's really fun to show women special pieces and great runway shows I have the fortunate opportunity to attend!

Who takes your photos for you/ How do your take your photos?
I either take the photo's myself *shudders* (photography is beautiful, but not my strong suit! lol) -- or sometimes I'll have to get my fiancé to do it.

How would you describe your style?
I'm an elegant/creative. I definitely like beautiful pieces that fit beautifully -- but I also want them to be slightly quirky by either dressing them up with some bold accessories (I LOVE LOVE LOVE statement pieces), or adding a hit of vintage feel to them.

What is one thing you are dying to buy this spring?
Lol, my fiance would argue I've already bought everything I was dying to buy ;) -- but I'd love to get a pair of Louboutins for my wedding.

Are you a shoes or bags kind of girl?
Can I be both? ;) I mean hey -- I shop and style for a living...I think that says it all on how obsessed I am. Ha-ha!

What is one thing that you regret buying?
Nothing. I don't buy pieces unless I can't live without them. I save for what I want...but slowly it's building my wardrobe to everything I've always wanted! (Minus the fact that I don't have a walk-in yet -- stay tuned! *swoon*

If you could meet one person from the fashion industry/ a fashion icon who would it be?
Rachel Zoe or Victoria Beckham. Love them. Audrey Hepburn if she was alive.

What is your favourite vacation destination?
Hilton Head Island. It's a spot I've gone too since I was 4 every summer. It's beautiful! Great for families or for couples. The scenery is nothing like I've ever experienced anywhere else!

What is one totally random fact you want others to know about you?
Lol, I don't know if it's something I want people to know...or something they even care to know, lol -- but I can have one eye go crossed eyed and while having the other look the other direction. That's weird, right? lol!
