#whatsyoursystème x Spencer Glassman

Posted on

We met Spencer Glassman aka @yes_imspecer the millennial way; via instagram DM. We loved her aesthetic and right away, it was clear that she's a boss-lady who knows how to make things happen. Spencer organized and styled two photoshoots featuring our knits and also was kind enough to answer our pressing questions.

SDV: Tell us a little about yourself...

Spencer: I just turned 20 and I live in Toronto. I do a lot of different things, which is a very millennial M.O these days. Mostly I curate, style and model in photoshoots. In the fall I’m going to film school to explore the technical side of the visual world. I want to be a visual storyteller.

SDV: What are some choices that you make, or aspire to make (big or small)  in your life to live more sustainably?

Spencer: I’ve been vegetarian for the past 8 months and vegan on and off. Aside from the inhumane treatment of animals, I initially became veggie to combat climate change. I also RARELY shop fast-fashion! Buying thrifted or consignment clothing is not only generally more chic, but it also reduces carbon emissions, reduces clothing in landfills and uses less natural resources!

SDV: What's your personal style philosophy?

Spencer: My style philosophy is NEVER STOP PLAYING DRESS UP! To ad-lib a quote I read on the internet: “When you feel like you have nothing to wear, it’s really because you have nothing to express who you are that day.” Some days I’m feeling my it-girl fantasy, some days I’m a cowgirl, somedays I’m a teen boy. Style is the way you hold yourself. NOT what you wear.

SDV: Whats your Système de Valeurs? (code of ethics and values that you try to live your life by)

Spencer: Trust God. Clean house. Help others.

SDV: What's one possession that you could not live without? 

Spencer: MY CELL PHONE OKAY! 

 

SDV: What's a fact about yourself that most people don't know, or may find surprising?

Spencer: Je suis bilangue! 

 

SDV: What do you like best about living in Toronto?

Spencer: Toronto in the spring, when everyone is thawing and coming out of hiding. Walking down queen with my friends. Sitting in Trinity-Bellwoods. It’s home!
