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.

Tiffany was meeting friends for dinner. As she posed for a couple photos, she told me her heels were borrowed from a girlfriend and her dress was bought earlier that evening. The light was dropping fast and unfortunately the photos are a bit grainy.

Every since I noticed Reesa coordinating activities at Vancouver Fashion Week
(in March), we randomly pass each other once every couple weeks. This evening
as she walked by with a group of friends she said with a big smile,
“Today’s my birthday.” This is my gift to you. Happy Birthday!

Socialite Skye N. Lintott was with her girlfriends when we met. They waited patiently while I took several photos. As I chatted with Skye I learned that she has modeled, has an interest in fashion and has a tattoo of her son’s birthday.

You’ll be surprised to learn that Andrea isn’t a model however she does work in the health & fitness industry… She was on her way to a birthday party when we met. She told me she bought her dress for a ridiculously low price! PS. The close-up shot of the heels and purse were taken across the street and enlarged. That’s why they look a tad grainy…

Sunan was impeccably dressed yet incredibly shy! After a couple shots she
phoned a co-worker. He was a nice guy and encouraged her to smile. I was
grateful for her time but I would have loved 5-minutes more. Sunan is a
founder of the local Vancouver financial technology company Payfirma.
Purse Hermes Birkin
When I saw Anna (from across the street), I couldn’t tell what she was wearing! As we were chatting she said her dress was from BCBGMAXAZRIA. She loves the store because she can wear their outfits off-the-rack. She sometimes travels to Toronto and I suggested she time her visit to take advantage of Toronto Fashion Week. She oversees the financial management for her company.

Zhanna made a quick trip downtown then she was headed to a birthday party. If
you look closely at her blouse, you’ll notice her left sleeve is full length.
