About Me



My name is Hillary Gail Stewart.

I'm a midnight cupcake eating, skinny dipping, flower child, dancing queen, stargazing trouble making fashion blogger. Now that is what I like to call an introduction!

I love trying new styles and playing with make-up. I enjoy vintage shopping and taking inspiration from everything and everywhere. I have discovered style inspiration from Betty and Veronica comics, old Hollywood, nature and vintage photographs. 

This blog is my outlet for creativity. I touch base on non-fashion/beauty related subjects such as Environmental Awareness, Animal Activism, Online Bullying and lifestyle. Eco-Style where I give you ideas for environmental and animal friendly beauty and style products.


 I've got dreams of macarons, tall buildings, a colourful apartment with black and white photos on the walls and a walk in closet full of pretty, vintage dresses. I want to wake up in Paris, eat pain au chocolat for breakfast, and drive my yellow Vespa down the cobblestone streets while wearing vintage Dior and combat boots. I'm in love with the fashion of the classic 1950's, mod 1960's, free-spirited 1970's, goth 1980's and grunge 1990's. I often find myself gravitating towards styles from the 90's that I used to love as a child, but still, nothing beats a chic beret and go go boots!



Fashion is a magical thing, and can transform you completely.

FAQ's

Some questions are answered below, there are also various blog posts full of Q&A's for you!

Questions Hardly Asked
The Proust Questionnaire

Describe your personal style and its influences / inspiration.
My personal style is very eclectic. It can change day by day. One day I can be very relaxed and wear a oversized sweater, leather leggings and booties. The next day I will wear combat boots, a feminine dress, a faux fur jacket, and a cool clutch. It is all based on my mood.

How did you first get interested in fashion and why is it important?
I have always been interested in fashion! I remember things I wore as a child, I remember putting together my own outfits...It is important to me because it is how I express myself. 

Favorite designers and places to shop?
Milly, Alice + Olivia, Kate Spade, Miu Miu, Betsey Johnson, Vivienne Westwood, and The Row are some of my go-to designers.
I really enjoy shopping at vintage and thrift stores; you never know what kind of things you will find! It's like a treasure hunt. I love buying clothing that has been lived in, that tells a story. I frequently shop online, that's where I find the things I cherish most. eBay and Etsy hold some very special items if you take the time to look!

Most loved/used item in your closet?
The most used item in my closet is my black leather jacket. It goes with everything. It looks like the Balenciaga quilted jacket seen on Kristen Stewart, except mine is Joe Fresh - I wear it all the time.  My most loved item is my grandmother's vintage Chanel jacket that she handed down to me. It's irreplaceable and so timeless.

What is your next must have purchase?
Balenciaga Derby Booties (which are now in my closet!) and the Gucci leather belt with double G's.

Are there any fashion icons or famous people whose style you admire?
My main style icons are my Grandmother, Nanny and my Mom. They raised me and I always look up to them. Their individual styles were what influenced me at such a young age, they're why I love fashion so much!

Icon wise, I adore Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Blair Waldorf (character from Gossip Girl), Chloe (character from Don't Trust the B in Apartment 23) Edie Sedgwick, Audrey Hepburn, Natalie Portman, Elizabeth Taylor...

What is the ultimate showpiece in your closet?
I have a beautiful vintage Chanel jacket and vintage dress from my Nanny from the 50's, a leather jacket from my Grandmother, and various dresses that I just am obsessed with. My Manolo Blahnik's from Sex and the City are pretty special, as are my Christian Louboutin Studded booties.

Who are your favorite actresses? 
Natalie Portman, Keira Knightley, Meryl Streep, Emilia Clarke, Dakota Johnson, Betty White, Audrey Hepburn, Julia Roberts, Krysten Ritter...
