What do you get when you cross a firecracker with a flower? Internet sensation, Jillian Danford.
Known as "Auntie Jillian" by thousands of her followers, thanks to her successful YouTube reality show called Latoya's Life,
Jillian has recently begun her own spin-off show, Auntie Jillian.
This lifestyle show consists of interviews, travel, product reviews, news, cooking and more, and allows Jillian to share her point of view on any and every topic out there. It's also just one of the reasons we find Jillian so fascinating!
Jillian's style is nothing if not absolutely rocking, so when we asked her if she was interested in participating in Nadia's campaign to bring the women of Toronto and her art-inspired fashion together, it was a no-brainer!
We styled Jillian to interpret her bold personality, with bright colours and accessories, including the Osgoode Silk Scarf
and the Adelaide Street Skirt
. The bright colours bounce playfully off of her gorgeous skin tone and create a sleek, effortless style.
"I love her creations as she designs freehanded and you get a finished product with a creative art that is awesome. The colours that Nadia chooses to work with are vibrant and they make me so happy."
Vibrant and Happy. Two words you know that Jillian lives and breathes every day, whether she's hanging out with her crew, spending time with her family or working hard, Jillian, like Nadia and her art, is someone you want to have in your corner!
