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 23 With Amy

Jun, 1st, 2014

Amy just purchased some pastries and was on her way to meet her girlfriend that just arrived in Vancouver. When I asked about her outfit she said she picked a bright color to match the weather. From a distance her skirt appeared as a solid color. However once we began chatting I could see a geometrical pattern which made me look twice.
Amy’s wearing:
Sunglasses: Gucci
Blouse: Banana Republic
Skirt: Vintage
Purse: Marc Jacobs
Heels: Aldo

Sidewalk Shoot – My Friend Khris

Jul, 15th, 2012

Brunch Date



Hi Khris-
Q- What are you wearing today?
A- My skirt is from Zara. My purse, ring and heels are from Aldo. My blazer and belt are from the Gap and my blouse is from Banana Republic.
Q- When/where would you wear this?
A- Dinner or girls’ night out
Q- How would you describe your personal style?
A- Grunge, edgy, vintage, eclectic. P.S. I adore snakeskin, skulls, and silk!
Q- Who’s your favorite style icon?
A- I don’t have one per se but Mary & Kate Olsen, Alexa Chung and blogger Aimee Song (Song of Style) are awesome.
Q- What shopping secrets would you like to share?
A- Quality over quantity. Don’t buy something just because it’s cheap, make sure you’ll actually get some wear out of it. Consignment stores are a good place to start if you want to find some unique pieces which can be cheaper than retail. Warehouse sales are pretty sweet, always show up early!
Q- What’s your current obsession?
A- I’m reading Discipline and Punish by Michel Foucault, fascinating stuff. I am also obsessed with graphic novels, typewriters, and antique furniture.
Q- What comes to mind in five words or less?
A – Happy-go-lucky
Thanks Khris!
Khris has an amazing sense of style. I’ve seen photos where she’s assembled five different outfits. I think she should be a stylist!
As we were planning the shoot, I thought her fishtail skirt should be the centerpiece. When we went shopping, to build an outfit around the skirt, I realized we had different styles. We reached a point where I said, heels would look nice and she picked the heels. Then I said a cream colored blouse and blazer would look nice and she picked those too. I hope you like the results as much as I did!
