Love is in the air and Valentine’s Day is not far away.
 
Instead of the traditional color of red, Zara and I found pastel colors of lavender, mauve, tan, grey and dusty rose for our themed shoot. She described the colors as soft and spring-like.
 
I picked the lace floral print skirt and blouse from the Couturist. The popular online site opened a pop-up shop (on Robson St. near Thurlow). After several weeks they will close their shop shortly after Valentine’s Day. However they will continue to serve customers online.
 
You may recognize Zara from her 2011/12 TV show called Life & Style with Zara. As a multi-talented individual she continues to keep busy as an Actress, Activist, TV Host, Producer and Model.

Hippy Chick Chic
 
I was speaking with my friend Myriam who confessed she was a hippy at heart. The idea began germinating and a hippy themed shoot was born!
 
Then panic set in. How could I recreate a look from 40 years ago? I started by making a list of vintage shops. I stopped in Aldo shoes and to my surprise I found the perfect pair of 5″ platform chunky heels.
 
On the day of the shoot JoJo and I stopped at Club Monaco, Zara and Forever 21. It was amazingly easy to find floppy hats, fringed items and wide legged jeans. It was apparent the 70’s look is in-style for the 2015 fall season.
 
JoJo’s outfit came from the following stores:
 
Black & Red Hats: Aldo Shoes
Sunglasses: Claire’s
Black & Red tops: Forever 21
Vest: Forever 21
Jeans: Forever 21
Purse: Zara
Heels: Aldo Shoes
 

Sidewalk Style – Week 28 With Yanika

Yanika’s brightly colored dress caught my attention and reminded me of the song “Walking on Sunshine”. She was on her way to the office but stopped for a moment. She likes the color yellow because it complements her olive skin tone. She also likes the fit of the dress which is both playful and conservative. I asked if dressing nice extended to the weekend and she responded, “Yes, looking good makes me feel good so you’ll only catch me in tights and runners when I’m on my way to the gym!”
 
Several of these images will be featured in the Asian Pacific Post newspaper.

Sunglasses: Burberry
Dress: Banana Republic

Sidewalk Shoot – My Friend Ekaterina

When Ekaterina moved to Vancouver she left her fashionable wardrobe behind. To make the most of our photo shoot we headed to Mine & Yours Boutique on Hornby St. Our inspiration started with a pair of Ekaterina’s black platform pumps. We could have easily created a fall look but I found a frilly, flirty skirt that tipped the balance back to a summer look. Jigme found a black blouse and belt. We decided to give the outfit an edgy look so we went with a pair of ankle boots and sunglasses. Ekaterina smiled said the outfit made her feel girly. Incidentally, she modeled a little for her parent’s retail clothing store. She’s currently a student and may continue her education in Canada or possibly Europe. She enjoys modern dance and is looking forward to the start of snowboard season.

Sidewalk Style – Week 28 With Natalie

Natalie said I could post her photos provided I didn’t show her face (for privacy reasons).
 
Natalie and I had a wide ranging conversation about fashion. She told me she wears heels to the beach. She has a sister that’s a designer and she doesn’t have a style icon. While her outfit (today) consists of typical Vancouver brand names she honestly prefers to shop at small boutiques and favors unique pieces. More importantly she’s a big supporter of Vegan and Eco Friendly clothing. If you feel the same way here’s the results of our conversation. Natalie shared the first two and I provided the last three:
 

  1. Inhabitat – Stella McCartney’s Vegan line of accessories
  2. Vaute Couture – Apparel and fabrics made from vegan and recycled fibers
  3. Matt & Nat – Fashionable purses made from…
  4. Eco Fashion Week – A 3-day fashion show held in April & October
  5. La Biosthetique – Cosmetics & hair products that avoid animal testing and use Eco friendly production methods.

La Biostheique products can be found at most upscale Vancouver hair salons.

Ekaterina had a few minutes before meeting her friends for dinner. It was the perfect time for a mini photo shoot. I loved how she coordinated her outfit down to her baby blue painted fingernails and toenails. She said she was feeling romantic and picked a light blue dress to match her mood.

Wow, who is she!?
 
Where is she going?
 
Where is she from?
 
Her name is Rasha Goel, she’s crossing Alberni St. She’s from the US and we met through Zara Durrani. You might recognize Rasha if you attended Vancouver’s 2013 Times of India Film Awards (TOIFA). She was on the red carpet interviewing Shah Rukh Khan and Aishwarya Rai. Rasha currently lives in LA where she’s a TV Host & Emmy Nominated Producer. She is also a co-founder of a dance company and produces documentaries, but her dream job would be to host her own talk show. Inspired by Oprah Winfrey and the legendary news broadcaster Barbara Walters she would love to give celebrities and everyday people the opportunity to share interesting and inspiring stories about themselves. When she has time to relax she enjoys traveling to out of the way places and experiencing their culture and traditions.
 
Several of these images were featured in the Community section of the Asian Pacific Post newspaper.

Sunglasses: Moschino
Blouse: Firma Energywear (Malary’s Fashion Network)
