E&E: Fun Fact about VancouverEmily: During the fall/ winter months, it RAINS quite a lot in Vancouver, so make sure you always carry a little umbrella with you. Because it can rain unexpectedly. Weather in Vancouver is quite bi-polar.
Whether it's on UBC (University of British Columbia) campus, or even just downtown, you can also scout movie stars filming in Vancouver.

E&E: Where do I pull fashion inspiration? Who, what and where?
Emily: Everyday on Instagram whether its from people I know, or people I don't know. I also find inspo when I go online shopping or even surfing through pinterest and see how stylists/fashion bloggers style with similar pieces I have.
I pull fashion inspo on trendy pieces, and try to blend it and create the same trend within my style, and the clothes I have. In addition, on Instagram, I constantly follow  #myaritzia #nowherebuteverywhere #dailyhivestlye for outfit inspos .
