What's New Chez Vous, Fashionista514?

Posted by Risa / March 16, 2012


Fashionista514 is a sharp local style blog requested for the Chez Vous series by a savvy reader (love that, thank you!) It's author Robyn Chalmers frequently offers a sexy, behind-the-scenes peephole into Montreal and NYC photoshoots and designers. Robyn and her blog have been featured in ELLE Canada, FASHION, Clin D'Oeil, LouLou, KILL Mag, and more.

My name is Robyn Chalmers, and my blog is While it is primarily a personal recount of my life and opinions, tidbits of fashion, beauty, lifestyle, and social observations inevitably always get thrown into the written and visual mix. Blogging has been my full time career for just over two years now, and there's nowhere else I'd rather be. I'm very proud/privileged to be the online ambassador for Annabelle Cosmetics, where I maintain their blog and animate their YouTube makeup tutorials. Blogging has been very good to me (and it's only just the start)!

So...What's new chez vous?

What's new? Well, I just moved, so my focus has made a turn for the personal in the sense that I'm absorbed with setting up my home and workspace for maximum comfort and efficiency. On a work front, I am collaborating with Boutique Onze for a limited edition F514 graphic t-shirt (derived from my ink drawings, and warped digitally for a tad more intrigue), and writing for Montreal's event magazine RSVP. Blog-wise, I'm at the point in my business' life where I can start to mould it into what I want it to be forevermore. This will include more posts, more content, more creativity. That, and I'm hunting down an agent in NYC this summer.



Local love bonus questions of love! Most memorable meal you've had recently in a restaurant in Montreal? Recent clothing shopping experience? Who else should we feature?

Meal?: I was just recently invited to the Hyatt downtown for dinner, and fell in love with chef Simon's cooking! He prepared seared elk that was truly to die for, with a cauliflower substitute for mashed potatoes, and this chocolate mousse cake that had a sophisticated version of pop-rock crackle in the bottom crust. On a less fancy note, every meal at Brit & Chips is a memorable one!

Shopping?: American Eagle Outfitters and Simons! I'm in a complete bohemian/comfort mood with my clothing lately, and their skate and urban brands (even beachy surfer styles) are hitting all the right notes with me. Zara has some amazing tailored finds right now too.

Who else?: Zombieboy, Corey Shapiro of Vintage Frames, and maybe some Montreal models!

What's New Chez Vous is an interview series by Risa Dickens, Yelp Montreal Community Manager and co-founder of Each column will spotlight new fashions, styles and trends in town and the places local boutique owners love.

Unquestionably imagine that that you stated.

Your favourite reason seemed to be at the web the simplest factor to consider of.
I say to you, I definitely get irked whilst people consider concerns that they just don't understand about.
You managed to hit the nail upon the highest
and defined out the entire thing without having side effect
, other people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more.
Thank you

It's hard to find educated people for this topic, however, you sound like you know what you're talking about!

My partner and I absolutely love your blog and find the majority
of your post's to be precisely what I'm looking for.
Do you offer guest writers to write content for yourself? I wouldn't mind writing a post or elaborating
on most of the subjects you write about here.
Again, awesome website!

Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad
and tested to see if it can survive a twenty five
foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views.
I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
Gene F. Harding / October 7, 2014 at 01:08 pm
An intriguing discussion is definitely worth comment.
I believe that you need to publish more on this issue,
it might not be a taboo matter but usually people do not discuss these issues.
To the next! Many thanks!!

Websites or blogs with a higher page rank appear first on this list.
When you first set up your Wordpress site, it is not

you can help that. It is not only a Post Office box, but your own real
