As soon as I could dress myself, at the tender age of three, my mom said I would change outfits at least 4 times a day every day. Even then, as a wee little girl who couldn’t make her mind up, I loved experimenting with fashion and putting together different outfits. (And creating huge piles of laundry for my mother in the process!) I grew up dancing and performing and was always excited to dress up in various different costumes that usually included a whole lot of sequins and glitter. I started my personal Edmonton-based fashion blog Marie a la Mode in 2010 to document my outfits and share my style and love for fashion with my readers. Since launching my site, I’ve been featured on Breakfast Television Edmonton, Global Edmonton, in Fashion Magazine, Avenue Edmonton, WHERE Magazine, Mod City Magazine, on CBC Radio Montreal, 630 CHED, in The Edmonton Journal, The Calgary Herald, The Vancouver Province, The Vancouver Sun, Southgate Centre, West Edmonton Mall’s Style Blog, Style Nine to Five, Smashion and many other fashion blogs. I have taken advantage of all the amazing opportunities that have come my way including blogging for Western Canada Fashion Week, styling for Georgie magazine, The Libertine, West Edmonton Mall, Penningtons, photographer Harvey Miedreich and Mode Models, hosting shopping parties and fashion shows for Jacob, French Connection and Le Chateau and happily giving fashion advice to my clients, readers, friends and even strangers I meet on the street. It is with pleasure that I share my love for fashion and eye for style with you!
