StreetStyle: Maureen Malkowich

  • Print

Maureen Malkowich

Working downtown gives Malkowich lots of opportunity to see different styles. She appreciates seeing the artistic side of people, especially when attending events like plays at RMTC and the different festivals the city has to offer. Malkowich and her co-workers sit outside for lunch on Broadway and see lots of people and street vendors walking around. She says, "I'm a people-watcher, for sure. I love how people wear whatever suits them and they look so confident in it. It looks like we're not a cookie-cutter kind of fashion city. I like that about Winnipeg."

What she wore...

COAT -- "I don't know, it's really old. It could be from a second-hand store. I liked it because of the bright red colour."

SCARF -- "It is from a little kiosk boutique in New York; they had pashmina scarves out on display when I was there visiting a friend."

PURSE -- Value Village

DRESS -- "Its Joe Fresh (Superstore)."

DENIM JACKET - "Denim jacket was a gift from a friend."

BOOTS -- Suzy Shier

TIGHTS -- "Dollarama," giggles Malkowich.

UMBRELLA - "It's from my work! Workers Compensation, safe work."

GLASSES -- "They are from Superstore. I'm sounding like the cheapest girl on the block," says Malkowich, laughing. "I like shopping at second-hand stores because it's not just five sizes of the exact same outfit that everyone owns."

EARRINGS -- "A gift from my son."

RINGS -- "This is an Avon ring and this is a ring from The Forks, one of the little jewelry places upstairs."

Fashion essential

"I wear boots a lot. I think I wear them with pants, dresses; sometimes I wear a heeled boot. I just think they sort of dress things up and they look kind of sexy."

Style inspiration

"I always watch and read StreetStyle. I love hearing what people have to say about what inspires them and, for me, it's just sort of watching people on the street and paying attention to what they wear. There are a lot of really stylish people here and I love going to the fringe and folk festivals."

Fashion tip

"I was in a rut where everything I owned was black, so now when I shop I'm always specifically looking for something colourful. So, go for colour, especially with all the colour blocking in the dresses and shirts -- I think that looks really cool."
