This week we are featuring Gabrielle Lacasse, who is the face behind the popular Canadian fashion blog, Dentelle+Fleurs. Her blog is a bilingual (yes, she speaks French) site that focuses on photography, fashion and an all around sense of well-being. She is a lover of tea, well-made handbags, and frozen treats.
In my spare time I like to…
Read, ride my bicycle around the city, discover new coffee shops, eat ice cream, listen to music and go to the cottage.
Describe your personal style in three words.
Comfortable, minimal, boho-ish
How did you first start blogging and sharing your style online?
I didn’t really know what I was doing when I started, ha! About 6 years ago, I was living in my parent’s basement and on a whim, I started posting tidbits about style, daily outfits, beauty and creative inspiration. I then realized I was getting lots of adrenaline, fun from it, so I kept doing it (and my readership kept growing) until today, blogging as a full-time job.
What are your top three favorite Instagram accounts to follow and why?
@xxjmitch for his aesthetic and killer outfits.
@wildfireness for their quotes on love and life.
@stylesteffi for her creativity.
What advice would you give to someone trying to break into the blogger world?
Be yourself, get creative, try something new and don’t buy your way up. Working hard is the only way to built yourself a name. Bonus: Don’t do it for the free stuff, people will know.
I won’t leave my house without…
My cellphone, a great black purse, a jacket if it gets cold (I am Canadian) and mascara.
