Sidewalk Style – Week 22 with June

Jun, 1st, 2013

It was a pleasant surprise to bump into June! She’s a Stylist at a well-known salon and we belonged to the same gym for a period of time. We also bumped into each other at a fashion event several months earlier. Today she was waiting to meet her date. I took advantage of moment and snapped a few photos. I liked the angular cut of mini skirt but she mentioned she was wearing skorts. She had a purple sweater in her purse but her date called before I could capture the third color of her outfit.
June’s wearing:
Blouse Zara
Skorts Zara
Heels Guess

I met Vanessa four months ago. Click Vanessa’s first outfit. We met a second time a month later at Vancouver Fashion Week. When we spoke a couple weeks ago she told me she was headed back to Asia for an extended family visit. I felt flattered that she was willing to juggle a photo shoot, packing and travel arrangements. During our initial planning sessions we struggled to find an outfit from her personal wardrobe. Rather than give up or become discouraged she offered to go shopping! Again I felt flattered by her commitment to the shoot.

Sidewalk Style – Week 28

Jul, 11th, 2012

I normally see Mana interviewing Designers at fashion shows for her West Coast Style TV program. I’ve added several images of her in my “Seen @ the Show” posts. However today I saw her and her lovely sister on Robson St. With a little coaxing and prodding Mitra posed for me (left). She quickly warmed up and I got a nice smile. Of course I couldn’t say goodbye without photographing both sisters together. Mana (right) was quite proud of the fact that her mixed & matched outfit was affordable. Without hesitation she said, “My heels are from Army & Navy!”
Mitra’s wearing:
Hat shhh… It’s a secret!
Blouse Zara
Pants Aritzia
Heels Nine West
Mana’s wearing:
Blouse ??
Capri Jeans Sirens
Purse Tory Burch
Heels ??
P.S.- Ladies… You should know Army & Navy’s shoe sales are legendary events. This is the kind of sale where women queue up to be first. This is the kind of sale where women fill small, handheld grocery baskets with a dozen shoes. I’ve never attended the event but I understand the prices are very affordable. The last shoe sale took place on April 25th…
