I always love a chic turtleneck, pencil or pleated skirt, and a great pair of heels. I love my Burberry blazers and trench coats, some of which I have owned for over a decade.

I spend about 5 minutes in the morning deciding what to wear—perhaps longer if I have something going on that warrants more time. How has your wardrobe evolved over the years and different rank in the office?
I felt I needed to make an impression aesthetically in the past, whereas now I just want to position myself to do my job as effectively as I can. What is your go-to power outfit for when you need to nail a presentation, meeting or interview? I tend to choose outfits that are approachable and somewhat quirky. I love shape and textures. Simplicity will win for you every time. In my job, you want people to focus on what you have to say, rather than your outfit.
I keep it neat and simple, with conservative hemlines and necklines. I might go for a bold dress and a single-tone necklace. If I choose a strong necklace, then I wear a subdued dress colour. I keep the rest simple and sentimental. For earrings, I mostly rotate between pearl studs from my dad and diamond studs from myself. I get asked about my necklaces. This was kind of a happy accident.
I figured out that a necklace is faster to shop for than a new outfit. In another life, I might have enough time to pre-plan. I have triplets and a job. To make life easier, I keep a rotation of clothes here at work and tend to grab whatever I am feeling later in the afternoon.
The main questions are: And have I worn this in the last three weeks? How has your wardrobe evolved over the years? I have been hosting for about 16 years now. At my first network job, I was out in the field, so comfort was the main driver.
Once I came into a studio, I had to figure out what worked for sitting behind a desk and what fit my budget. Later, studios here at CBC posed another challenge: We stand and are often not behind a desk. Flip-flops or ripped jeans. I grew up in a very conservative household British mom and Sri Lankan dad. I think for me it translates to work ethic. How you dress makes an impression. What do you want yours to be?
How much do you spend on work clothes in comparison to the rest of your wardrobe? My work clothes are definitely more expensive—the up-front cost as well as tailoring and dry cleaning.
Needing a variety of outfits means needing to buy more. They are an investment in my job and brand. Moisturizer and lip balm—I love having a makeup-free face! I love black footwear. Lately I have been wearing ankle boots with a short heel.
Winter is here, so as soon as it snows I will be wearing No. At the production space I wear comfortable sneakers because I am standing for 8 hours and I wear flats at the facial clinic we need quiet shoes there. I used to be a stylist and costume designer in NYC, and I used to love planning my outfits and getting dressed in the morning.
Since starting PA, I feel like my wardrobe has devolved; it has become extremely simple and practical. What is your go-to power outfit when you need to nail a presentation, meeting or interview? Black jeans, a silk top, an Alynne Lavigne necklace and Rachel Comey boots.
Buy only natural fibres. Does your commute affect your outfit? I bike to work every day, so I always wear shoes I can bike in. I used to shop a lot as a stylist and still have lots of clothes.
I also attend clothing swaps every few months and always find great pieces to add to my wardrobe. A Blazer and blouse, and pants with riding boots or kitten heels. Sometimes I wear work dresses, which I love because they are a one-item outfit—so easy!
Do you also have a go-to beauty look? I usually wear a simple black liner and mascara, and some bronzer and blush with a nude lipstick.
What is your go-to power outfit to nail a presentation, meeting or interview? I love my Burberry blazers and trench coats, some of which I have owned for over a decade. They are such classic pieces that have stood the test of time. They are always elegant and I feel great in them. I would never wear very high heels because although I love the look, they slow me down. How does your wardrobe differ on the weekends? I live in Lululemon on weekends, as I love to run and am a fitness enthusiast.
On evenings, I love to get dressed up and wear high heels and dresses. Do you feel any pressure to be stylish—or not too stylish—at work? GL is a technology company and with that comes a casual culture. I am lucky to be able to dress the way I like. Something very classic and sophisticated like a dress I have a few St. Johns ones or a skirt suit with a shell top, a strand of pearls, and booties or black patent heels. Anything low cut, too tight, night-time.
This is a medical office and should be respectful at all times. Do you feel any pressure to be stylish, or not too stylish? But that being said, I like to feel I look nice, professional, comfortable and in-charge. Given my public speaking, all my clothes do double duty. I have a Marie St Pierre blazer that I can wear to work but also with jeans to go for dinner with my husband. And quality over quantity.
My basic working uniform is a bodysuit, pink tights and a dance skirt.
