#WomanCrushWednesday – Editor in Chief for the Fader, Naomi Zeichner

11 Nov, 2015  |  by rochellelatinsky

This week I’m dedicating my very first #WomanCrushWednesday post to a woman who’s way with words and love of Drake is almost bigger than the entirety of the The 6ix (Toronto). I recently had the opportunity to meet a long time journalistic idol of mine – Naomi Zeichner. Naomi is currently the Editor in Chief for The Fader. A publication that continues to remain relevant and interesting despite the perpetual slog for page views. Her interview style and casual ease is…

#WomenCrushWednesday – Fat Girl Food Squad

12 Dec, 2014  |  by Amarina Norris

Here we go, it’s the last #WomanCrushWednesday post of the year (we’ll be taking a short holiday — the blog’s first in 2 years!). I initially thought I’d do a roundup of some of the dope babes I’ve featured since I started the column in April, but guess what? That’s actually an impossible feat due to overwhelming greatness. What I really want to do is show some love to all of the incredible Fat Girl Food Squad humans, who are…

#WomenCrushWednesday – Phebe Rendulic

12 Dec, 2014  |  by Amarina Norris

About five years ago I made the conscious decision to cut off my consumption of mainstream fashion and lifestyle media. I replaced that void of garbage with feminist, body diverse/beauty diverse magazines and blogs, accumulating a list of gorgeous, kickass babes that doesn’t ever stop growing. One of the first ladies I found was Phebe Rendulic, an Australian photographer/musician/artist/crafter/fashionista with a love of all things bright and colourful. I related to her style immediately and have loved everything she’s put…

#WomenCrushWednesday – Mo Handahu of Lion Hunter

12 Dec, 2014  |  by Amarina Norris

    It has been a great year for fat fashion and body positive vibes in Toronto. More plus-size pop ups were organized than ever (including not one but TWO from Fat Girl Food Squad!) and the community in this city is growing and strengthening every day. At one of these events I had the great pleasure of meeting Mo, the fashion blogger and stylist behind Lion Hunter. Based in Halifax, she brings new life to thrifted clothing in the…

#WomenCrushWednesday – The Ladies of Stars Hollow

11 Nov, 2014  |  by Amarina Norris

It would have been fine to pick the glorious Melissa McCarthy as my #wcw this week, she’s at the top of her game. If you haven’t watched The Heat yet, I recommend you swiftly abandon reading this and watch it wherever you look at movies these days. Her Jimmy Fallon “Box of Lies” sesh is also great and she is great, we all know this. Since the October launch of Gilmore Girls on Netflix however, I have heard satisfied sighs…

#WomenCrushWednesday – Ness Lee

11 Nov, 2014  |  by Amarina Norris

    Before I get started I want to briefly comment on what’s been going on in the media recently. Women in solidarity have become louder, growing in volume against the voices of assholes who think that women are liars and feminism is a bad thing. As always, we need to support and believe each other, while continuing to celebrate female artists, activists, entrepreneurs, moms, students, leaders and weirdos in whatever way works for us. Big love to all the…

#WomenCrushWednesday – Shauna Alterio of Forage Haberdashery

10 Oct, 2014  |  by Amarina Norris

Five-ish years ago I was in a bit of a fear-induced limbo. I had a jewellery line that was doing well on Etsy but I was struggling with the inevitable debt I would incur going back to school for fashion design while also coming to the realization that my entrepreneurial goals would mean making some crazy sacrifices for it all to work. The stress! I was deep in an Etsy procrastination hole when I came across a video they did…

#WomenCrushWednesday – Nadia Aboulhosn

10 Oct, 2014  |  by Amarina Norris

I woke up this morning to all sorts of buzz over plus-size model and social media queen Nadia Aboulhosn. As her exposure has grown she’s been pretty polarizing, but it’s clear how Lena Dunham feels on the subject. Guest editor of Stylist Magazine this week, Lena selected two New York babes for the feature fashion spread, plus-size model/musician Margie Ashcroft and of course, Nadia. These two KILLED IT, adapting high fashion brands that don’t carry sizes above 12 for their…

#WomenCrushWednesday – Kelly Augustine

10 Oct, 2014  |  by Amarina Norris

There are just some people who effortlessly exude confidence and joy. Blogger and style expert Kelly Augustine is exactly that, blazing a fatshionable trail through the streets of New York City with a smile. I follow her on all the social media I’ve got, but taking a deeper look through her site prior to writing this I was shocked by how many things Kelly as on the go. Between her site, modelling, events AND pursuing a B.A. in Advertising &…

#WomenCrushWednesday – Jazzmine ‘Babydoll’ Rixen

8 Aug, 2014  |  by Amarina Norris

Jazzmine “Babydoll” Rixen is a German/Indian body positive activist living in Kuala Lumpur. She’s all over Instagram – her personal style blog was so successful that she branched out with her I Am Proud to Be page. The #iamproudtobe hashtag features women from all over the world flaunting their beauty with pride. Babydoll has unending confidence, amazing style and I am in constant hair envy – her pink grapefruit locks are now an incredibly vibrant fuscia. I am sure this…
