Kii: So I’d like to think that my style is fresh. I’m a tomboy, so I really like to wear things that describe my mood. I wear pretty much anything from Jordans to heels to sweatpants and sequins. I’m really all over the place, which is difficult for some people to appreciate, but I stay true to who I am. I like to wear things that I make myself that haven’t been seen before. I think my style is very sexy without showing skin. I’m a curvy girl, so I know I can’t have too much of my skin out in one outfit. I think that’s what I’m known for, being mysterious, leaving stuff to the imagination.
Ashleigh: Who is your style icon?
Ashleigh: Do you think style is important? Why?
Kii: Honestly I feel glamorous all the time, even with no makeup. But, I’m usually feelin’ myself when I’m wearing something new, when I got that Ruby Woo or YSL lipstick on, or when I have some freshly painted nails. Lol. I’m really girly, I love all that stuff.
Ashleigh: What advice would you give to others that are trying to define their style?
Kii: The advice I have for people trying to define their style is don’t compromise. Stay true to who you are and people will respect you. Figure out what you’re comfortable in and stick with it. Find that thing that makes you feel sexy or “glamorous” and run the town! I only found my femininity after high school, and I remember wearing Air Forces and sweatpants everyday. Haha!
Ashleigh: Who is your favorite designer?
Kii: I don’t really have a favourite designer either. I love Marc Jacobs and I’m really in love with Balmain’s line this coming year. I love leathers, spikes, sequins, lace, prints, and black & whites.
Ashleigh: Where are your favourite places to shop?
Kii: I love to shop at Zara, French Connection, Value Village. I love those little boutiques we have in the fashion district in Toronto. I hate wearing the same thing as someone else. I mostly shop at thrift stores and alter the clothing pieces I find. I’m also very cheap. Lol. People think I spend a lot of money on my clothes but I could never. I can’t do it unless its on sale! Lol. I mean I am buying for two(my daughter and I).
Ashleigh: Name one fashion trend you hate.
Kii: Hmmm…only one fashion trend I hate? Lol. There’s so many. I hate when people are label whores. So for example, I hate how guys will wear a Gucci hat, Gucci top, Gucci belt, Gucci jacket, pants, Gucci shoes, can’t forget Gucci sunglasses (in that damn order). That to me isn’t fashion. I also hate when girls wear high waisted belts with EVERYTHING! I can’t stand all those body suits girls wear either.
Ashleigh: When you meet the opposite sex, what is the first thing you notice about them?
Kii: When I meet a guy the first thing I notice is their cleanliness. I like a simple man. I like a man that can wear a crispy black Tee with some fresh jeans and fresh sneakers. I just like a clean cut man that can compliment my style but not overshadow it. I mean, lets face it, girls run the world, guys need to sit in the back seat! Lol .
