Ask Me

Have a question for me? Cool, you’re in the right place. Ask away below!

Hi Alyssa! I love your style and since becoming pregnant have taken a lot of inspiration from your pregnancy outfits 🤰🏽. For reference, I’m wondering how tall you are? I’m 5’1” so it’s sometimes a struggle to guess how outfits will look on me. Thanks! 26. June 2023

Welllllllll this was asked back in 2022 (sorry!!!) but to answer your question (even though you’re probably not pregnant anymore – congrats!), I’m 5’6″!

Alyssa, this website is really beautiful. Any tips you can share on how a fellow creative can achieve unique website design?! 24. July 2020

Thank you so much for the kind words! If you know some HTML/CSS, I recommend downloading a theme you like and playing around with it (that’s what I do)! But if you don’t and have some time to learn, give HTML/CSS a try 🙂 Or you could just spend some time finding a theme that suits your creative needs!

Hi Alyssa! I love your blog and the refreshing content you produce. I see that you started your blog on WordPress. Does that mean your design has been modified on WordPress as well or did you work to design your website from scratch? 17. June 2020

Thank you so much! Obviously not producing much at the moment – oops! As with all the blogs I’ve had in the past, I generally use a pre-made theme and transform it to using CSS and HTML 🙂

Hi Alyssa! I’m a huge fan of your YouTube videos and saw in the caption that you use a Sony A7R Mark III, but when I was reading the asks you also mentioned the Canon 5D Mark III! So I was wondering if you maybe had some advice about which direction to go into and your experiences with these cameras? 17. June 2020

Thank you so much for the kind words, and my apologies for this TERRIBLY late reply! Just over a year ago, Eric and I sold all our Canon equipment and bought into Sony because: Sony cameras are so much easier to carry around and their video capabilities are amazing! Personally, if you need a robust DSLR that can also do video, the Canon 5D Mk III was a great choice for a reasonable price as its quite outdated. Sony is definitely much more expensive of an ecosystem to buy into but I’ve really been loving the quality of the camera and lenses thus far! Hope that helps! x

Hi Alyssa! I’ve been following you for ages and I always wondered why you chose to stay in Edmonton, even though you could work anywhere. Do you find working in a small city has helped your career? Thank you! 29. February 2020

Thank you so much for following all these years – it means so much!

As you’ve mentioned in your question, I could likely work from anywhere (this flexibility is something I’m very grateful for)! And although I hated living in Edmonton as a teen with a curfew and without a drivers’ license and any semblance of independence, Edmonton is now a really wonderful city to live in. Plus, my friends and family are here!

With that being said, if I was really serious about pursuing being a full-time “fashion influencer,” moving to a bigger city would’ve definitely made more sense. But it’s really only a side project for me!

Hi Alyssa! I just found your blog and I love it! I wanted to do a blog for a while now but don’t know how to start, is your blog connected to some big blog company, or is an independent one? If it’s independent, how did you did it? Thank you for your magical work and keep up <3 8. January 2019

Thank you so much!! My blog has always been independent and I actually started it on Blogger and eventually transitioned to WordPress! You can really just start on any site that hosts blogs! x

Hi Alyssa, what is your take on there being a number of people who want to be conscious consumers of fashion but most products offered are on the high end, in terms of price? 24. October 2018

Shopping sustainable fashion is not 100% accessible, but it is up to those who can afford it to support the designers who are paving the way for sustainable and slow fashion! For those who want to be conscious consumers but don’t have the budget to, I always recommend shopping secondhand or vintage as a sustainable alternative. Also, just being more mindful about what you buy, and buying only what you need and not what you want is already a more sustainable train of thought.

HI! What is your opinion on the rapid cycle of trends in fast fashion? Do you think that the slow fashion movement is discouraging trends and ways that individuals express themselves? I’m sure the conversation goes deeper than this and I’m interested to know your take on it. Thanks! 24. October 2018

So sorry for the late reply! Trends are one of the reasons fast fashion has become disposable. People either throw away or stop wearing their clothes because their clothes fall apart or go out of style. So I really don’t care for trends (although I’m sure they affect me on a subconscious level). With that being said, I don’t think people need trends to express themselves whatsoever. Trends are a marketing technique employed by fast fashion retailers to make us believe that we need something to be “cool” or “with it”. I 100% believe that you can still love clothing and express yourself creatively with your clothing without ever having to be on trend. And I think that’s what the slow fashion is really about – consciously creating timeless fashion that won’t ever go out of style.

Hi i love your blog since forever! been following you for a long time. maybe you’ve got this message a lot and had already answer it but i want to ask you how did you edit your photos on this blog? what app did you use? thanks! 13. July 2018

Thank you so much! I edit all my photos on Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop!

What is your opinion of the creative culture in Edmonton? I have always been inspired by different bloggers around the world, but I’m so grateful that you have put Edmonton (my hometown) on the map 🙂 Thank you for inspiring so many people! 20. June 2018

Edmonton’s creative community has grown SO MUCH since I’ve started blogging and it’s so amazing to experience! There’s a whole new generation of creatives who are inspiring me to keep pushing myself. Thank you so much for the love and kind words!
