 What do you love most about Spring?

It means winter is over! It brings everyone out – the streets are busier, the city just feels happier. It’s amazing.

What is your most cherished vintage piece?

I recently got married and the dress I wore for the reception was a vintage Oscar de la Renta I bought on a whim ages ago. I tried it on and my mom convinced me to buy it, promising I’d eventually find a use for it. It fits perfect, wears like a dream and was just the thing for our wedding day!

The perfect outfit?

A little of this and a little of that. My favourite looks are ones built with a mix of contemporary and vintage pieces. Right now I’m really into monochrome so have my sights on some pretty whites for spring!

What is the most ridiculous thing you have ever purchased?

I once bought a vintage red and white polka dress. Sadly, it wasn’t until I got home that I realized it was an exact replica of Minnie Mouse’s uniform.

If you were ice cream what flavour would you be?

Mint chocolate chip 4lyfe.

If you could have a slumber party with three people who would it be?

Probably Tina Fey, Amy Poehler and Beyonce. Good party mix, right?

Music that makes you blue?

I once happened upon an album by The Submarines. It’s a break up from both sides. Perfectly blue.

Music that tickles you pink?

Robyn always!

The last book you read?

Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald by Therese Anne Fowler

 What makes your heart melt?

All manner of cat videos.

 Who in your life should be wearing a superhero cape?

My nephew is 2 and a half. I’m sure he’d be thrilled with a cape.

 In five years from now you will be___________.

The only thing I can say for certain is that I will definitely be five years older.


All items Leah is wearing are available in store or on-line.
