ABOUT

Looking Glass is a source of edgy and affordable petite fashion inspiration. You’ll find outfits, inspiration, travel diaries, and more.

Standing at 160cm/5″2, I am petite. In fact, all my life I’ve usually been the smallest girl in class or at work. I’ve learned to love my small frame after years of wishing I was taller. I hope to show other petite women that they are beautiful just the way they are.

I hate defining my style (it really depends on my mood), but a lot of people describe it as edgy. I tend to distance myself from overly girly styles. In addition to being petite, I have a baby face. I feel like a 5 year old if I’m in anything too sweet. If you’re petite and can relate, this blog is for you!

I also put an emphasis on affordable fashion. I believe that no one has to spend a fortune to look good.

My name is Maria and I created Looking Glass in 2014. I’ve loved fashion and writing for most of my life, so I decided to start a blog. I studied fashion merchandising and went on to work in fashion retail and wholesale (I currently work as a visual merchandiser by day). I felt that I needed to do something a bit more creative and personal, and that’s where blogging came along.

I’m based in Vancouver (Canada), where I live with my boyfriend and our dog Lady (who you’ll see occasionally in the blog). I was born in Moscow (Russia) and have also lived in Gold Coast (Australia). Apart from fashion, I also love music, travel, nature, languages, film & TV, and reading.
