Anna Wornette

My name is Anna, and I’m one of several Wornettes, the new swarm of interns currently invading the Worn offices. As the only web intern, I’ll be updating this blog often.

I’m a first year university student majoring in English. I’m new to living in Toronto and I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of its ever growing fashion scene. In the past, I’ve worked a few online magazines and interned at a local newspaper, but this is the first time I’ve had the chance to be so involved behind the scenes of a print publication like Worn.

I absolutely adore everything about fashion; I take my style cues from all sorts of places, but I’m particularly influenced by movies, such as those directed by Jean-Luc Godard, Michel Gondry, and Wes Anderson, feminine designers like Erin Fetherston, Abigail Lorick, and Miu Miu, and the uprising of style blogs written by regular girls.

I’m definitely looking forward to being part of the Worn family – hopefully you’ll be seeing a lot of me in the future!

Current inspirations:

Inspire Attire and If the Sok Fitz
My two blogs – the first is me deconstructing style icons, the second is an outfit blog I run with a friend.

The Fashion Spot
A great resource for everything fashion related – check out some of my articles on the front page!

Prim Magazine
A creative, avant-garde magazine started by a fourteen year old New Yorker

What Claudia Wore
A hilarious blog analyzing the style choices of Claudia Kishi from the Babysitters Club.

The Cherry Blossom Girl
Very charming French style blog

Also, here’s a head up for those of you looking to get your vintage fix in the next few weeks:

• In Ottawa this weekend? Mary Ann Harris of Reclectica will be hosting a vintage clothing sale on Sunday, March 1st from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at 1495 Chomley Crescent. Cash only!

• If you’re in Toronto, the 18th annual Toronto Vintage Clothing and Textile Show will be taking place Saturday March 7th from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Conference Ballroom of the CNIB Centre (1929 Bayview Ave.). Admission is $7; partial proceeds will be donated to the Multiple Sclerosis Society and the Canadian Cancer Society.

I’ll be at both these events; see you there!

Cheers,
Anna

  1. Woot – welcome!
    I love that film inspires you in terms of fashion. I think movies have a really unique way of showing clothes – because you’re looking at them as real, wearable things, instead of still moments. (It always seemed much more sensible to try and put together an outfit you could have a reasonable expectation of moving in.)
    Also, film gives a three dimensional idea of what works and what doesn’t. There are all kinds of things you can do in a photo that would NEVER be possible without meticulously arrangement, pinning, clipping and tucking for the sake of an image – but unless you plan to leave the house with clothespins on your back and fishing line holding your zipper… Well, no.
