Sidewalk Style – Week 42 With Fabiola

Oct, 16th, 2015

It was nice to see Fabiola again. We’ve met randomly a couple times on the “sidewalk” and met for a shoot once. Tonight she was on her way to her girlfriend’s housewarming party. She stopped long enough for me to capture her latest outfit.
Here’s a link to her office outfit and a link to Shoe La La.
Fabiola’s wearing:
Blouse: Isabel Marant
Pants: Joe Fresh
Heels: Zara

Sidewalk Style – Week 39 With Karey

Sep, 26th, 2015

I first met Karey in late August. Click Vampy Bohemian to see her first outfit.
Despite the sunny weather, it was chilly and windy. Today Karey was experimenting and pulled together an outfit she could at the office on a Casual Friday. She opted for her high waisted skinny jeans paired with a structured blazer. After that it was easy for her to add accessories and shoes.
Karey is 4′ 11″ (150 cm) and wears a size 3 shoe. Needless to say she finds shopping a challenge. For that reason she’s motivated and inspired to start her own petite clothing line. She has a great sense of style so I’ll be interested once she begins to create her collection.
Headband: Forever 21
Blazer: Bebe
Blouse: Banana Republic
Skinny Jeans: “Leigh” Top Shop
Heels: Found at a vintage boutique

Sidewalk Style – Week 42 With Jessica

Oct, 14th, 2014

Jessica’s outfit and crutches immediately caught my attention. Was she wearing a sweater mini dress? Was she injured while practicing hot yoga? As she sat near me on the bus I wanted to know what happened. She shared she was on her 3rd month of recovering from a motorcycle accident! She’s a student, involved in a professional group and social activities. I admired the fact that she took the time to piece together an outfit while feeling less than 100%.
Jessica’s wearing:
Cardigan: Banana Republic
Shorts: Yes, she’s actually wearing black shorts!
Purse: Michael Kors
Stocking: Winners
Leg Warmers: H&M
Boots: Spring

Sidewalk Style – Week 29 With Chanelle

Jul, 19th, 2014

I met Chanelle while she was running errands. She didn’t have an inspiration for her creating her outfit. She simply picked colors that matched.
Chanelle’s wearing:
Jacket: Dynamite
Skirt: Forever 21
Purse: Coach
Heels Michael Kors

Sidewalk Style – Week 23 With Keiko

Jun, 1st, 2014

I photographed Keiko on the “Sidewalk” a year ago. Click Keiko to see her previous outfit. Today we met randomly as she was running errands. She has the same lovely smile and nice legs! Oh my, I wrote what I was thinking! I speculate both are a result of her love of dancing. She’s passionate about Salsa dancing. Today she’s wearing a flirty A-line skirt and matching wedge heels. She matched her purse and sweater then tied everything together with a scarf from Japan that repeats the colors of her outfit.

Sweater: Le Chateau

Sidewalk Shoot – My Friend Tukwila

Mar, 23rd, 2014

Anatomy of a Photo Shoot
Tukwila is an independent model from Seattle. Yes, Tukwila is her real name (it means “land of hazelnuts” in the Coastal Salish First Nations’ language). I met her and her husband Leonard at Vancouver Fashion Week (VFW) in October 2013. Tukwila “walked” for several designers during the Spring/Summer show.
09:00pm Saturday – We met by coincidence at a coffee shop in downtown Vancouver. She was here to “walk” for several VFW Fall/Winter designers.
11:00pm Tukwila got approval from her designer to arrive at 1:30pm Sunday for hair & makeup.
10:15am Sunday – We meet downtown to shop for two outfits.
     11:20am    Our arms are filled with three outfits, several blouses and skirts.
     11:30am    Panic is starting to set in. Time is running short and we don’t have a killer outfit yet.
     11:40am    We agree to find one look instead of two (because she won’t have time to change).
     11:45am    Tukwila starts trying on 12 different pieces. Some fit, some don’t, some don’t look well together. Sigh…
     11:50am    We all like the skirt Leonard found. I found a blouse and two fitted blazers. Things look promising!
     11:55am    I found heels and purse. We now have a killer outfit.
     11:57am    Tukwila, Leonard and I liked the smart, classy, “Springy” look of the outfit.
     12:00pm    We raced out of the store for the nearest Starbucks so Tukwila could change.
     12:05pm    We start shooting.
01:10pm We finish shooting and we say goodbye.
Tukwila is a modern day renaissance woman. In addition of being an independent model, she has a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts for dance, she leads a small dance troupe and she’s Owner of a green friendly cleaning company.

Blazer: Jones NY Collection
Blouse: Calvin Klein
Skirt: Walter Baker
Purse: Nine West
