My name is Audrey Paillé, I’m 22 years old and I come from Canada. I’m currently living in Montreal so my mother tongue is French but I speak English too. Also, I’m a full-time student at university in public relations. I created my blog French Allure a few years ago but I stopped. I just started back blogging!
What inspired you to start blogging about fashion? I’ve read many fashion blogs for the longest time. Ever since I watched my favorite movie ever “The Devil wears Prada”, I have wanted to work for a fashion magazine. Having a blog is my way to be an editor in chief to my own magazine!
Do you blog full-time or as a hobby? I blog as a hobby. I have a part-time job at Zara and I’m a full-time student at university.
Are there any goals you wish to accomplish for the year (blog related): I would absolutely love to score my first collaboration with a company based in Montreal.
How would you describe your style? The thing is that my style changes everyday!! I can wear really cute clothing with pastels colors one day and the next I can feel more minimalist and wear neutrals pieces. One thing that is common in all my looks is a feminine touch.
Name your top 3 designers:
Chloé: For the bohemian and feminine vibe
Chanel: For the details
Valentino: For the ultra delicate and feminine look
If you had the chance to go on a shopping spree at any retailers of your choice, where would you go? Why? I would totally go to Holt Renfrew or Ogilvy. They are a Canadian high-end department store which carries all the best luxurious brands of clothing, accessories and beauty.
Mary Kate or Ashley? I prefer Ashley because she is a bit more feminine.
Is there a celebrity who best matches your style? If I had to pick only one celebrity, I would say Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Her style is effortless and it changes from day to day just like me.
If you had the chance to sit front row at any designer’s how during NYFW who would you see? I would love to see the Zimmermann fashion show because I really loved the past collections and I would love to see more!
Heels or flats? I absolutely love heels but I’m a really busy person and I’m not the best at walking in stilettos so I’ll say flats! This way, I don’t have to worry about having to take off my shoes mid-day.
Whats your rule with accessorizing? I try not to mix metals. It is something I’m quite picky about. For example, if I wear a purse with the tiniest bit of silver, the rest of my accessories HAVE TO be silver. In my opinion, It looks more put together and add unity to the outfit.
What is a staple piece everyone should have in their wardrobe? This might be a boring answer but a nice fitted jeans goes a long way. Especially if you are short like me (5’2), when you find the perfect jeans with the right length buy all the colors from the same model!
