Styled By Styleista: Avenue Magazine Aug 2014 - Maya Gohill

"Maya Gohill’s style — both in art and in fashion — draws from a sense of nostalgia where Star Wars reigns supreme and The Littlest Hobo is the ultimate 
tragic figure."

"If you’ve been to Phil & Sebastian Coffee Roasters’ new Mission location, chances are you’re familiar with Maya Gohill’s work. The Calgary-born painter is responsible for the captivating portraits of the coffee shop’s owners that hang on the wall at the back of the new cafĂ©. The paintings are like the artist herself — eclectic, stylish, colourful and filled with a sense of wonder."  - Ricky Zayshley (Associate Editor Avenue Magazine)


Got to love this girl!

Here are a few tips to get you started:

-Jersey maxi dress (versatile)

-Cork wedges (so comfy)
-Cross body bag (hands free)
-Neutral makeup pallet (Urban Decay has a great one)
