Ofelia Liu’s blog, Glass of Fashion, is a visual delight. It documents Toronto stylist Ofelia’s fabulous (and fashionable!) life in photos, from the delicious food she noshes on, to her world travels, to her gorgeous outfits (of course). Her style is casually cool with a touch of bohemian flair. We chatted with Ofelia about blogging and her personal style.
Pink Martini: What made you decide to start a blog?
Ofelia Liu: I started my blog in 2011 to document my experiences in a new city. I moved from Vancouver to Toronto for school and found that it was also a great way for me to keep my friends and family updated.
PM: What would you say sets your blog apart from the crowd?
OL: I think I’ve tried to keep my blog as organic as possible. I stay away from ads and only do product reviews if they are relevant to me or my readers. I try to post things that I feel genuinely happy with and not because I feel the need to post something for the sake of having something there.
PM: Who do you think are the most fashionable celebrities, current or past?
OL: I love Emma Stone (pictured below), Jessica Alba, Rachel Bilson, the Olsen twins…
PM: What movies or TV shows inspire your personal style?
OL: I absolutely adore Hart of Dixie (pictured below). It’s a little over the top, but if I were to live in a small town that never seems to have cold weather, I would totally dress like that. The U.K. television series Secret Diary of a Call Girl also has phenomenal costume design.
PM: What blogs do you read?
OL: Chriselle Lim, Song of Style, the Beckermans (pictured below), Man Repeller…
PM: How would you describe your personal style?
OL: My personal style usually reflects my mood. It bounces between super casual, homeless chic, granny-esque, and minimalistic.
PM: What’s your number one style commandment?
OL: When going out for delicious food, always wear something stretchy. Oh, and a statement watch, of course.
PM: Which spring trend are you most excited to wear?
OL: To be honest, I stopped following trends. I have to say that the white on white looks cool, but the thought of keeping my outfit away from stray pen marks or ketchup stains is already deterring me from it.
PM: Which three Pink Martini pieces would you recommend to our readers?
OL: Nathalia Navy Dress, Starry Knit Dusty Pink, and Emma Dress White. (Pictured from left to right below).
