Q & A with Abigail Spencer
In which we once more confirm that she’s awesome

Actress, florista, mom, dog-mom, and passionate recommendation-giver – Abigail Spencer indulges our curiosity with a Q & A that had us feeling like we were her actual BFFs.

What drew you to BonLook as a brand, and to this collection specifically?

I love that it’s a female-run company. I love that it’s French AND Canadian. I love the blue light lenses and the price points. And as for this collection, it’s just classic. A classic Betty. A Betty Classic!

How would you qualify your style? What are some of your favourite fashion items right now?

Other than my BonLook Betty’s? ;) I’m generally not a “trends” person. I’m more of a classic, stand-the-test-of-time type. But if I were to think of a Top 5: my Celine suede fringe purse, my Khaite two-tone suede fall boots, any Celine fall silk dress, my Isaac Dial turquoise and silver earrings, and my Aritzia puffer.

Do you have any favourite work-from-home looks?

I kinda fell into the kooky art teacher look this year. I have a Heidi Merrick obsession, particularly her silk drop crotch pants and fluid tops. I also like an at-home California chic look. Or a nice athleisure look, like a cashmere sweatsuit for the changing season – “Am I working? Or working out?” Nobody knows.

What are your pet projects these days? What upcoming projects are you most excited about?

Well. My actual pet, a maltipoo-terrier rescue pup named Lucky. And also, my new mobile Florista service County Line Florals. I have some other acting/producing projects coming in 2021, but I’m not at liberty to say yet.

What are some of your favourite at-home family activities these days?

Dancing in the kitchen with my son. Zoom Pilates with Jessica McTighe, and FORWARD Space’s at-home dance parties. Plus, backyard dinners. And of course: florista-ing.

What are your favourite neighbourhood takeout or delivery restaurants?

The original Katsuya. It’s near my home and it’s the best. Flavor of India. And for home cooked-esque catering meals: Haute Chefs.

What have you been listening to on repeat lately?

Fleet Foxes’ new album Shore.

If you were to recommend recent reads or favourite shows, what would they be?

  • The Queen’s Gambit, The Vow, Pen15, and Reprisal.
  • I watched Emily in Paris in one night – holy eye cotton candy! Paris, Lily, the fashion: oh my!
  • Also, did you see how Grey’s Anatomy broke the internet?
  • I’m watching Songland and Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist with my son. He also recently discovered How I Met Your Mother, Brooklyn 99 and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.
  • I’m grateful people are finally finding Rectify, too. Watch that! I want the whole world to see it.
  • I’m also reading Ray Dalio’s Principles, Kim Scott’s Radical Candor, Pema Chödrön’s When Things Fall Apart (on repeat), and Glennon Doyle’s Untamed.
