Her style is sleek, chic and a little bit artsy. Ela Oslezewska has “the look”.
I first met Ela when she sent in a photo for our What I Wore feature and was so intrigued by her style I asked her to show me more.
Ela is the owner of high fashion boutique called Delacor Studios in Oakville, Ontario. She has the fun job of welcoming new brands into her store and trying them out herself, combining them in new and different ways.
I love the way she makes sporty, elegant and a touch quirky too. Here’s what she had to say about her much admired style.
Deb: Ela – How would you describe your style of dressing and how has it evolved?
I’ve always been driven by a need for uniqueness and for finding that “personal voice” through fashion.
This attitude is starting to be seen more and more throughout the entire fashion world. I would rather not follow strict aesthetic rules but rather express my stylistic diversity.
Deb: Tell us a bit about the 3 looks you sent in and where you wore them?
|Look # 1 – Meeting Friends for Dinner
The weather allowed me to wear this asymmetrical jacket by Sarah Pacini. I carry a lot of Pacini. It’s a Belgium Brand of high style sportswear that’s luxurious, elegant and appropriate for any occasion.
The pants, by Blacky Dress from Germany, offer a more playful approach with a colorful pattern that didn’t compromise the intention of “cutting edge” styling.
|Look #2 – Wrapping Up My Work Day
My handbag and platform shoes add an avant garde vibe to the outfit. I love this outfit because although it is very contemporary, it is also very comfortable.
|Look # 3 – My Day Off
I love the combination of the soft, pastel pink and black. Since this soft, delicate pink has a strong presence, black combines well with it.
I like to have a starting point before I put my outfit together for the day. The pink and black sandals were purchased the day before, and I used them as my inspiration for the entire outfit. I just had to wear them. They completed the outfit!
Deb: What’s the best style tip you’ve ever received?
Glamour is best expressed when style meets personality. Wonderful, Thanks Ela. Keep on inspiring us!
