It’s your first celebratory night out, post-pandemic (or post-vaccination). Where will you go and what will you be wearing? What is your full-on, dream look for this night out?
Nothing beats a night out downtown. Love to celebrate at the annual Edmonton Chamber Ball or a summer night at a downtown festival with dinner and drinks at Bar Bricco or Sabor. Can’t beat a formal tux or perhaps a nice pastel summer suit.
Is there a special accessory that completes your look? Does it have a story?
I love my briefcase; it is the perfect accessory. You need to have something to carry your work, the one I have is from John Lewis from a trip to London a few years ago.
Is there something you’ve worn through the pandemic that you never want to see again?
Nothing I’ve been wearing through the pandemic is interesting or coordinated. Can’t wait to add some colour, pattern and interest back into my wardrobe.
Did you cut or dye your own hair during the pandemic?
No, but I let it grow out a bit. First lockdown it was getting a bit shaggy. My hair grows up, not out, so keeping it under control and presentable is always a challenge!
Has there been something you’ve been putting off doing during the pandemic that you can’t wait to do?
Everyone wants to travel again. But I’ve been having a great time downtown, feel grateful for summer 2020 programming on 104th Street — Al Fresco on 4th— and extended patios, even though I’d love for all the festivals to be back downtown and around town.
What is one thing you learned about yourself during the pandemic?
The people in my neighbourhood, friends, business owners, community regulars, are so important to me.
Did you clean out your closet, edit your wardrobe during the pandemic?
Yes, some long overdue donations to Goodwill. If I haven’t looked at it in two years, I probably don’t need it.
Is there an Edmonton or area boutique that’s your first destination when shopping for clothes?
I love everything at Henry Singer. If I had to do a shopping spree, that would be my first choice.
