We head to Toronto, Ontario to tour artist Angel Szafranko inspiring art studio and craft space.

My favourite thing about this space is that it's 'open'. It's actually the dinning room but we were never using it. I can see right into the living room from where I sit. So if I'm on the computer doing some work I can also watch a movie!

This week Juliet recreates the victorian steampunk look of musician and Snippets coverstar, Emilie Autumn:

DIY the style of Emilie Autumn, a well-known electric violin player, singer, actress and poet. She carefully selects amazing clothes from the Victorian era, corsets and striped stockings, adding sometimes a hint of fantasy and sometimes a Steampunk inspired accessory. Prepare yourself a cup of tea and welcome to her Asylum: but remember that it's easier to get in than to get out...

DIY Crop Top And Shorts Set

Recreate the look with Hannah's Crop Top And Shorts Set tutorial:



How would you describe your style?

I always have a hard time with this one as my style is really ever-evolving based on the season, my mood, and whats currently inspiring me! That said, I can definitely say it usually some sort of mix between vintage and modern, and I always try to keep things fun!

What's your favourite piece in your wardrobe?

My favorite piece in my wardrobe for comfort is one of my slightly oversized V neck t shirts, which you can find me in on most weekends!  As for a more fashion-y item, my cat- eye tortoise shell sunnies that my mom found for me in a grocery store in Hawaii are one of my very favorite things I own right now!  I know thats more of an accessory than a piece of clothing, but I feel like an outfit is truly complete once I have them on!

Who are your style icons?

Other bloggers are my style icons! I am so happy to be a part of such an inspiring and stylish community.  I am always pinning outfits I want to try out and swooning over things I see on my daily blog feed. 

Do you have any favourite designers?

I am really not big into designers, but I really enjoy everything from Dear Creatures. 

Where are your favourite places to shop for new clothes clothes?

Most of what I wear is vintage and or/ thrifted, so when I get something that is actually new it feels like a treat.  My usual go-tos are Urban Outfitters, H&M, and Modcloth.  Also, whenever I enter a Target I always end up with SOMETHING new that I really don't need!

Do you make or customise your outfits?

Yes! I love to alter vintage clothing to make it a bit more modern.  My Etsy shop is full of clothing that I have altered and/ or customized!  It's amazing what taking up a hemline a bit or removing poofy sleeves can do!

Do you have any great tips for mixing up and personalising an outfit?   

I'd say always have fun with it, and also make sure you feel like "you".  This is not to say I believe people should be limited to wearing one style, but I think its important to feel great and be comfortable in what you are wearing.  An easy way to make an outfit more personal is to have a few favorite sunglasses that can be the finishing touch to basically any look!

Which other fashion blogs do you love to read?

When I first started blogging, I was very inspired by Steffy's Pros and Cons and Flashes of Style, and they are still two of my favorite reads to this day.  I also love the remixing and swap blog I am a part of called Flock Together!

Bellingham, Washington, USA •

Bellingham is a magical land of bicycle lanes, many wonderful parks, endless amounts of hiking trails, second hand-shops, and a plethora of artisan coffee shops and local breweries. If you ever lacked a place to get your creative juices flowing, come to the inspiring hodge-podge of a city that is Bellingham. It's not just my home, it is one of my favorite places in the world.




We head to Tromsø in Norway to tour Helle's craft space which is packed full of supplies and inspiration.

My favorite thing about my craft space is the location of it. It's in the living room, and fortunately my husband to be thinks it`s ok to share the living space with my not always tidy office. We both appreciate the company. My second favorite thing about my space is that it faces the TV. Gotta love that!
