Street fashion with Emilie Montpetit-Meilleur

Name: Emilie Montpetit-Meilleur

Age: 23

Job: Waitress at Casino du Lac Leamy

Wearing: The only thing Montpetit-Meilleur actually paid for in this outfit was her sunglasses, bought in Tunisia. Everything else she got from a friend at Saint Vincent de Paul in Wakefield, QC.

Found: Walking at O’Connor and Slater Streets

Personal style: “I don’t follow a (set) style. Fashion is about creation and spontaneity. You have to create with your needs and resources. I don’t like spending money on clothes so I wear what I can find.”
