With Love Gabrielle
Our very own Marta Tryshak, a U of T alumna, has become a sought-after endorser in the world of Canadian fashion and beauty brands. On her blog, she documents her seemingly effortless and timelessly classic style. She also jets around the world to report on the top fashion shows, film festivals, and all other adventures that come her way. Marta’s blog—“where fabulous meets everyday”—will convince you that a person can look fabulous on a realistic budget.
The mastermind behind this world-renowned blog is Scott Schuman, who was selected as one of Time’s top 100 design influencers. He is famous for travelling all around the world, from the chic, sophisticated cafés of Paris and Florence to the rugged streets of New York and Chicago, on a quest to capture the pure, unaffected, and eclectic style of the global man and woman. His blog reveals how the creativity of the everyday person imposes a huge influence on the fashion world. By no means does the blog represent what’s in style among the pros, but browsing through his words and images on a daily basis can become something of a beautiful addiction.
Wendy’s Look Book
Wendy Nguyen of Los Angeles has earned herself quite a following on both her YouTube channel and her blog. Her refreshing and creative videos relay the latest fashion trends and outfits in a very accessible and relatable way, and they’ve captured my loyal attention.

Women are as unique and diverse as snowflakes. Despite this—or perhaps because of it— we all share the fact that we struggle in one way or another to find clothing that fits our body type. This blog is for all my petite girls out there. As a fellow petite girl, I can totally relate to the blogger’s tagline: “The quest for fashion that fits.” Her journey towards building a polished and put-together wardrobe that actually fits her is told through her many posts about the latest trends, professional outfits, and ingenious DIY projects to reinvent bland articles of clothing. It’s a gem for all the size 0s out there who have a hard time finding trendy clothing that flatters their figure, in both casual and professional settings.
