Sunday style inspiration: The fabulous Melanie

Post image for Sunday style inspiration: The fabulous Melanie

I arrived a bit earlier in Vancouver and had the opportunity to spend some time with Melanie, whom I introduced you to earlier in this style interview. She was one of the first women I interviewed and I have been following her online ever since.

She is even more special in real life than she in on her blog Bag and a Beret. Her outfits have inspired me every day and she is one of the kindest, beautiful and funniest women you will ever meet.

Here are some photos I took of her on a beautiful day in Vancouver.

An eclectic fashionista, she looks like a fun person to be around…AND a fellow shoe-lover! <3

I gulped when I saw this post. Thank you for your incredibly kind words, Sylvia. I bumble along style-wise and it’s a happy surprise to know that my style resonates with some people. You are a style inspiration for me too and it has been my honour and delight to meet you!

I so agree. Melanie is such an inspiration but above all a very funny, warm hearted and generous woman. You want to be around her all the time. The necklace she made for me draws crowds. Got so many compliments.

Fabulous style! And as on so many other occasions, I did not appreciate those Fluevogs before seeing them on someone who knows how to style them. I have not appreciated the fringey/furry shoe thing at all either, but Melanie really knew when to bring these out. Amazing.

Melanie is truly a one off, one of a kind and thank heavens for that! I love individuality and creativity and the confidence to just be your own woman and Melanie, encapsulates that completely. Bravo to everyone at the meet up! I wish I could’ve gone. Next time!

Allow me to heap more love on the substantial love-pile for our tremendous, one-of-a-kind, adjectives utterly fail to describe her fabulousness, amazing Melanie! Gorgeous profile and lucky you!
