CITY YOU WERE BORN IN: Montreal (well, St-Jérôme)
Meet Marie-Claude! The girl who manages to do it all. Marie-Claude (while always impeccably dressed) somehow finds the time to do everything. Whether it's doing two or more workouts, completing an entire day's shift of work, cycling around town, and many other things, she does it all in a day. Studying at UQAM, with a concentration in Fashion Design and Marketing, Marie-Claude applies her generous knowledge to her work at Citizen. Marie-Claude started working at Citizen as an intern, and is now working in the shop and at the studio in marketing and publicity for Citizen!
WHY DO YOU LIKE SHOPPING VINTAGE CLOTHING?
Giving a second (or third. or fourth) life to a piece is something really magical. Plus, it's a smart ecological move. Let's try to save this earth.
DOGS OR CATS?
DOGGGS (dogs are the best)
WHO WAS YOUR FAVOURITE SPICE GIRL?
Emma (Baby Spice)
PANTS OR SKIRTS?
Shorts? I feel really comfortable with my legs out but i'm way too clumsy to wear skirts. I hate having to think about how I'm sitting, or if the wind is showing my but to the world. It's nice to bike tho, with shorts underneath. So shorts.
DENIM OR LEATHER?
BREAKFAST FOR DINNER. YAY OR NAY?
Oh yaaaaas! Protein pancakes and benedectine eggs all day everyday please.
I used to work as a cosmetician, so I take really good care of my skin; I use face washer, toner and cream (sometimes I also use a serum) in the morning and before bed time. Oh, and sunscreen too. Take care of your skin people! You'll be glad you did later ;)
YOUR DREAM JOB?
Petting dogs or meerkats or otters (or any animal) all day long and being paid for it. OMG
ARE YOU GOOD WITH PLANTS? IF SO, WHAT IS YOUR SECRET? IF NOT, WHAT ARE YOU DOING WRONG?
I suck with plants. I just can't take care of plants. At all. 2 years ago, my roommate left for like 2 weeks and when she came back, all her plants were dead. And I took care of it, like pour water in it and stuff. I don't know what's wrong with me.
BOWIE OR MICK JAGGER?
IF YOU COULD FIX ONE THING ABOUT MONTREAL, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
There's maaaany things that need to be fixed but as I bike everyday to go everywhere, I would say the streets. I mean, could you find a way to repair the streets without having to do it all summer long the next year? Wtf. Oh, and I use public transports in the winter, and there's always problems and stuff. That's annoying.
SOMETHING PEOPLE DON’T KNOW/REALIZE ABOUT YOU?
I lift. Alot. And I can squat you
SWEET OR SAVORY?
LAST BOOK YOU READ?
I'm reading a book called Je tourne en rond mais c'est autour de toi by Michel Beaulieu at the moment, and also some Cioran.
FAVOURITE TIME OF DAY?
HOW DO YOU EAT YOUR PIZZA?
Without meat (I don't eat meat), with ketchup and mayo
FIXIE, FREEWHEEL OR GEARS? AND WHY?
Fixie because I like the control
WHEN ON VACATION, SUNTANNING OR WATER SPORTS/ACTIVITIES?
I don't like to lay in the sun, all sweaty and feeling like I'm on the highway to hell because of the sun burning on my skin, so I would say water sports/activities even if I'm scared of water. Well, I did canoe for the first time this summer and wasn't scared so I guess it's a good sign.
