ALEXIS NORMAND

Meet my friend and publicity client, Francophone singer-songwriter from Saskatoon, Alexis Normand! She's a lovely and talented woman who records and performs her own original bilingual jazz-folk music, plus she's a member of the fiercely talented and uber-stylish (1940s style) gospel quartet group Rosie and the Riveters. She's been nominated for tons of music and arts awards across Canada and she's always got her hands full with a new project so we're so lucky to welcome Alexis as our first guest. Merci beaucoup, Alexis!

PS - Check out her music here.

ALEXIS: I'm so excited that spring has finally arrived! Of course, after a few days of sunshine, the tulips are starting to bloom. I’m equally as excited about the floral prints I am finding this season. There are so many cute dresses out there! One of my faves is a dress from Farminista.com – I wore it while touring Eastern Canada recently. Here's an extreme close-up:

With my solo project I look for outfits that are classy and practical because my show is elegant but laid back. And Rosie and the Riveters is a female quartet who revisits the spirit of gospel music through sophisticated 4-part harmonies with a vintage 1940’s flare. Did somebody say polka dots and red lipstick? Yes ma’am! I dare say that this has been the most fun project since the invention of hair spray! What's your favourite era for fashion?
