Sidewalk Style – Week 30 With Ana Maria

Jul, 31st, 2015

I typically avoid photographing black outfits because it’s worn waaaay to often in Vancouver. I crave color! However, I make exceptions every so often. When I first saw Ana Maria I admired how she matched the black of her jeans to the black of her top. As we started chatting she said she was wearing a jumpsuit! As luck would have it, we met a year ago at fashion week. She’s a frequent guest of the front row. However, tonight she was on her way to meet friends for dinner. I asked about her jumpsuit and she said she picked it because she just left the office and needed to make a quick change.
Ana Maria’s wearing:
Jumpsuit: Guess
Watch: Rolex
Purse: Forever 21

Sidewalk Style – Week 24 With Raijanne

Jun, 13th, 2015

Raijanne’s birthday was a couple days earlier. Her and her boyfriend were headed to Gastown to celebrate. She chose the dress because she liked the feminine feel of lace. More importantly the cut made it easy for dancing!

Sidewalk Style – Week 28 With Ekaterina

Jul, 11th, 2014

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.
Several of these images were featured in the Community section of the Asian Pacific Post newspaper.

Sidewalk Shoot – My Friend Elya is “Going Somewhere…”

Nov, 23rd, 2013

As Elya described her wardrobe, her coat sounded like a perfect match for her skirt. She originally suggested a sweater but I felt the sweater’s pattern competed with her plaid coat and pleated skirt. Instead I suggested a plain white blouse. The combination was a welcome change to the black & grey winter colors Vancouverites love. I learned Elya will graduate this summer with an Interior Design degree.

Sidewalk Style – Week 11

Mar, 10th, 2013

For the second time in two days I’ve broken my rule for not photographing black on black outfits. However Khris is someone I photographed in July (click My Friend Khris). So it was time to make yet another exception…
You might think she’s is a model but she’s not. She’s a fashionista and a student. We attended Vancouver Fashion Week in September but today’s meeting was totally serendipitous. She just finished High Tea with her girlfriends and was headed home. She told me she was working two jobs and attending university. In June she plans to enroll in Law school. Our chance to catch-up was a nice way to end my Sunday.
If you look closely, you’ll see how her purse, watch and blouse all work together…

Sidewalk Style – Week 5

Emma is what I call an Insider. She’s an accessories designer (inspired by Alexander McQueen) and a Personal Stylist. She’s performed wardrobe assessments and she’s owned her own boutique.
We’ve chatted several times but this was our first lunch since the Christmas/New Year’s break. It was nice to hear about her desire to open a consignment store.

Sidewalk Style – Week 31

Aug, 2nd, 2012

Candace loves to look at fashion blogs! Her favorite is Vanilla & Lace. Hopefully she’ll add me to her favorites list. It’s been a week since we met but I think she said she had been involved with the fashion industry in the past. Currently she works in the field of communication (e.g. PR, Marketing etc.). I really like how colors of her purse, heels and skirt complements her skin tone.
