Kortney Shapiro is a passionate, free spirited Fashionista with a quirky attitude! She is a contributing writer for She Does the City, a practicing freelance journalist for various media outlets and a fabulous public speaker – it’s no wonder she was a natural at posing for Corina V at our Annual eFashionista Spring photoshoot at the Trump Tower.

Kortney was styled by Tania Semper, pampered by our fabulous Lush Brush beauty team and photographed wearing an Ann Swank flirty petticoat, dazzled with a butterfly-inspired necklace from the Bay and opted for a pair of Jule Nine West shoes featured below ($140 at the Bloor location)

Get up close & personal with Kortney:

1. What did you love most about our Spring Bunny shoot? 

Getting pampered is always such a welcome luxury…however having the bunny on set was just as amazing. He was such a sport!

2. What would our fashionista audience be surprised to learn about you? 

During two summers while in university, I worked on the Mediterranean as a counsellor at an international summer camp and also taught water sports!

3. How do you pamper & splurge aka unleash your inner princess? 

A decadent brunch is a great way to splurge with my friends, for what’s more indulgent than grapefruit mimosas, oysters, savoury eggs benny and never-ending conversations amongst excellent company? An occasional blowout for an event is also up there on the pamper list.

Bonus: What is your most sacred fashion / beauty possession? 

My most sacred beauty possessions would have to be mascara, a light lip stain and a gel moisturizer ; if you have those on with no other makeup, you still look put together and fresh.

My most sacred fashion possessions would be a collection of handmade evening bags passed down to me from my late paternal grandmother, Rena.
