Heather: I just had triplets so this is the first time I've dressed up in a while. I'm wearing a retro dress. I like that whole 1950's bombshell kinda look.

TorontoVerve: What's the best advice that you've received?

Heather: My mom told me to treat people the way that you want to be treated. It's important in every day life to be an example of what you want to see in the world because there's so much sadness right now.

Lois: I came up with a word the other day that describes my style. It's a cross between bohemian and sophisticated: "sophistobohemicat." It's a little joke to myself. I'm always playing.

TorontoVerve: What's the best advice that you've received?

Lois: My friend Elaine said, "See it coming. Give in early." Embrace life. Don't fight it. Figure out what you're going to do with it -- rather than rebel against it.

Lois is an interior designer. Check out her blog Divas At Home. "I design all my own furniture, pillows and accessories. I design for beautiful women. My clients seem to all be beautiful and they seem to have a husband and full life, but they need a nice setting. A sophisticated and glamourous setting for a beautiful woman. That's my style."

I've learned from my partner to always have a clean crisp haircut and wear tight clothing in all the right places. That's what led to me getting married today.

Liza: My style is classic/conservative with a little kick.

TorontoVerve: What's the best advice that you've received?

Liza: It's so cliché, but I think that the 'never settle' thing is really applicable for me -- especially right now in my person life. Onward and upward.

I'm wearing this punk glam outfit because I'm a street performer. My partner moves me in different positions like I'm a living doll. I'm influenced by singer/songwriter Amanda Palmer from New York. She has this modern yet anachronistic clown look.

When I was a teenager, my grandmother saw me leaving the house wearing a halter top and a mini skirt. She told me, "You know -- you either show your legs or your cleavage. Never both at the same time. Men only want what they can't see." Of course, I went out dressed the way I was, but I never made that mistake again. There's no need to try so hard.

I think it's important to actively go after what you want. Don't just say you want it and do nothing to achieve it. I stress less in life about the things that I want -- like a house, a boyfriend or a job. If I'm actively moving towards my goals, I don't have to worry about it.

Hayley: "Today I have a retro Brady Bunch look. I love their style."

TV: "What's your favourite moral lesson from the show?"

Hayley: "My favourite episode is when Peter Brady's voice is going through a certain change and they sing this musical number about going through change. The lesson was let change come when it comes."
