Kanika is being made-up back stage. She’s wearing a sari designed by Farida Z. Lalji Clothing.
It’s always a pleasure to see Stacey because this lady knows how to dress! I first met her at Carlie Wong’s fashion show. Click here to see
Stacey’s first outfit. No sooner than I posted her first photo, I got an e-mail from Talia (who lives in Toronto). She was excited to see
her design school friend on SidewalkRunway!

Q- What are you wearing today?
A- I’m wearing a dress that I purchased on Stopstaring.com, belt is from Winners and so are the earrings. And red high heels are from Shoedazzle.com
Q- When/where would you wear this?
A- I would wear this outfit on a night out with your girlfriends or a dinner date with someone you’ve already been on dates with. Not on a first date.
Q- How would you describe your personal style?
A- Classic pieces mixed with bold colours. A lot of a-line, tapered dresses, and pencil skirts. I’d say it is Jackie – O, mixed with the fun of early seasons Carrie Bradshaw, with the sexiness of Victoria Beckham and a bit of Kate Middleton.
Q- Who’s your favorite style icon?
A- All the 4 ladies listed above. But if I had to pick just one then it would have to be Jackie O.
Q- What shopping secrets would you like to share?
A- One woman’s “trash” is another woman’s treasure. Consignment, consignment, consignment! I get most my clothes at consignment stores. I always get compliments on pieces found there, and you can’t find them anywhere else. I love consignment stores. Especially for handbags and mod dresses.
Q- What’s your current obsession?
A- I was obsessed with finding the perfect classic, black pumps. Almond toe, non platform, at least 4 inches in height (but not over 4.5) and tapered looking. I stumbled across them during this photoshoot. It was meant to be! I bought ‘em!
Q- What comes to mind in five words or less?
A- I love my new pumps!
It was quite amusing how the date of our photo shoot bounced back and forth like a tennis match. We ultimately picked the first rainy day in several weeks. When we met, the light was dropping fast, the sidewalks were crowded and I was concerned the end result would be somewhat experimental. Fabiolia’s reply was, “Let’s experiment!” Her bold, bright outfit was perfect to cut through the dull, dreary afternoon.
Oh, you should know Fabiola modeled in her teens but she’s a well established sales professional.
I met Jutta early one morning on her way to work. No sooner than the conversation started, her bus arrived. Fast forward a week or two and by random chance we met again. Her style is impeccable. Her wardrobe is built around neutral colors and several basic pieces. She likes to celebrate her femininity by dressing nice.

I was sitting at a bus stop reviewing images when a Harley Davidson rumbled up to the stoplight. I thought to myself, those are some bad a** boots and snapped a shot. I thought they were long gone by the time I resumed my stroll. However, I totally got lucky. Trish and her husband parked one block down the road.

Sunset arrives earlier each day and evenings are a bit cooler. This was my last photo of August. I almost missed Claudia because she hid her lovely mini dress under a drab grey sweat jacket. She was on her way to work and I’m assuming she was trying to blend into the crowd. Unlike the vast majority of women (and a few guys) on SidewalkRunway, Claudia actually models! She was really sweet and a pleasure to photograph.

I wanted to introduce myself but she got a phone call. Unfortunately,
I had to settle for the sexy back of her maxi length sundress.
