StreetStyle: Sonia Funk

  • Print

Sonia Funk, a holistic nutritionist (see her site at thewholeavocado.com) is a healthy-lifestyle counsellor, working with people on their emotional connection to food. Like a counsellor, Funk gives her clients the resources and the knowledge to help them sense what their body actually wants. As with her work, she goes with her intuition when shopping and she treats buying clothes with that same mindset. Being in tune with your body can mean wearing soft fabrics that feel right. It's not only important to look good physically but to feel good inside when you're wearing what you want. We spotted Funk on Gertrude Street on her way home from grabbing a Halloween costume for her sister on Friday afternoon.

What she wore...

Coat -- "I think I bought it at Jacob."

Scarf -- "My scarf is from a store in the Beaches in Toronto."

Hat -- "Esprit in London."

Jeans -- American Eagle.

Boots -- "They are from the Ugg Store in London."

Bag -- "Radly, which is my favourite line of handbags in the U.K. It's a work bag -- I keep my laptop in it."

Earrings -- "My sister made these for me. She has her own jewelry line called Helena Brecht; she used my two grandmothers' names for her business."

Fashion essential

"This grey scarf underneath. I wear it with everything and it's from Banana Republic. It's soft and I like having something around my neck. My sister tries to take it all the time -- she loves it too. It's a loop scarf I bought three years ago; now they're everywhere."

Style inspiration

"Must be somewhere between New York and Paris. I love BCBG. I'm surprised I'm not wearing anything from BCBG right now because it's half my wardrobe. I like them because everything fits me, and the materials are really good and you get a designer look. I know they're expensive but they're not stupid expensive. I went to England to see friends for three weeks so I pick up little things and pieces everywhere.

Fashion tip

"When you go shopping, that one thing that is too expensive and something you love? Buy that and not the two shirts and the pair of pants that you sort of like. Spend more on one thing than on five things. It could be my entire budget for what I was going to spend, but I think I'd rather have that for the next few years than a few other things -- it will last longer. My designer stuff has lasted for years."
