You know that girl that’s just so unbelievably, yet effortlessly, cool that you just want to blurt out- Be my best friend? Well in our eyes that girl is Stephanie Mark, and yes, Amelia did ask the Toronto based entrepreneur to be her best friend. [Answer still pending...]
You see, Stephanie Mark is the co-founder of one of our favorite websites, The Coveteur, and when we met her last Saturday she was everything we had hoped for and more!
The original plan was to do a standard interview with Ms. Mark- Where do you see yourself in 5 years? Describe your personal style? Snooze fest. What we really wanted to know is what are her favorite things… and, will she be our best friend.
The following rapid fire question session ensued.
What’s your sign? Virgo! Obsessed!
Favorite food? Pizza.
What’s your favorite restaurant in the whole wide world? Okay, so there’s a restaurant called Pizzeria Libretto in Toronto, and I’m convinced they have the best pizza in the whole world! I would eat there everyday! It’s not fancy. It’s cool and trendy, and I would eat there every day!
What’s your favorite city? That’s a hard question. To be honest, I’m enjoying Chicago! [she knows her audience] I really am!
What’s the best thing you’ve done in Chicago? Going to Ikram. That’s a right of passage! I’m going back this afternoon because there are a couple pairs of shoes that are on sale…
Favorite designer? Riccardo Tisci.
Favorite accessory? I love me a Givenchy accessory too. I can’t lie!
Favorite vacation destination? Sadly, I haven’t had a vacation in a really long time, but if I were to go somewhere it would be Coqui Coqui in Tullum.
Favorite website? Style.com all day, everyday.
Do you have a favorite day of the week? Sunday.
What’s your favorite skincare product? Okay, I think about this everyday. There’s two things I really like. Skinceuticals Blemish + Age- it’s so good. I put it on before I go to bed, and I really feel like it fights anything that’s growing! IF, something gets through Eve Lom has a really great spa treatment called dynaspot and I swear by it.
Do you have an all time favorite post on The Coveteur? I would say Coco Chanel’s apartment. I was my first time ever in Paris, so that was really special.
Other than Paris, do you have a favorite place you’ve visited for The Coveteur? Dubai.
Do you have a favorite TV show? Okay, I never thought I’d be saying this… but I’m in a Nashville K-hole and I’m obsessed! Netflix in Canada has season 1 & 2, and when I got here and realized you guys don’t have it I was devastated!
What’s the best thing about being Canadian? Bacon.
Favorite hair product? I did a keratin hair straightening treatment and it changed my life. It’s all anyone ever needs. I’m not good at doing my own hair.
Favorite pair of jeans? I hate wearing jeans! If I do it’s a JBrand boyfriend jean.
Favorite handbag? The Céline Trio.
Evening handbag? An Edie Parker clutch.
Do you have a favorite song? Anything by The Band.
What’s your favorite cocktail? Tequila soda, with a little bit of grapefruit.
