To plan our shoot Julia and I met at the Cou+uris+ popup shop on Robson St. Incidentally there’s a good chance they will close on or near Valentine’s Day. So hurry while they are still downtown.
 
When Julia arrived she was wearing a vintage orange leather jacket. It was a statement piece too hard to ignore. So we shifted gears and found a mustard yellow A-line skirt at Zara. The autumn color combination became the inspiration for her outfit. Everything fell into place when I found a pair of burgundy heels and blouse.
 
Julia enjoys modeling and she’s pursuing an acting career. She’s typically cast as the “girl next door” but welcomes the opportunity to play a strong female character.

I styled Julia’s outfit:
 
Jacket: Vintage
Blouse: Forever 21
Belt: Big Buddha
Skirt: Zara
Tan purse: Oliva + Joy
Boots: Steve Madden
Heels: Zara

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.

Faith has modeled in Asia but in Vancouver she works as a Commercial Underwriter. She still manages to model part-time. Today she selected an outfit that reflects her “sidewalk” style. She wears this combination when shopping with girlfriends or dining-out. Her full length coat is special because it was a gift from her father. Her sparkly top is meant to brighten a gloomy winter day. She likes the red satin ribbons and the comfortable fit of her heels.

Faith is wearing:
 
Coat: White Collar
Blouse: J Crew
Mini Skirt: Zara
Boots: Stuart Weitzman
Heels: Charles & Keith

Hi Natalie!
 
Q- What are you wearing today?
A- I have my Louis Vuitton purse and I’m wearing my Zara dress and Le Chateau heels.
 
Q- When/where would you wear this?
A- Out for lunch with my girlfriends to a fine restaurant.
 
Q- How would you describe your personal style?
A- My look ranges from a wide variety anywhere from furs to jeans to a more high fashion feel.
 
Q- Who’s your favorite style icon?
A- Alexander McQueen
 
Q- What shopping secrets would you like to share?
A- I like to treasure hunt in vintage and thrift stores. I always find the most unique things!
 
Q- If you were a super hero/villain, what super powers would you have?
A- Invisibility
 
Q- What sound(s) do you most love to hear?
A- Ocean waves
 
The sunny weather brought out lots of people during the long Easter weekend. Some clung to their winter black and grey outfits while others opted for their spring flip flops. When Natalie arrived for lunch I was glad to see she embraced the start of spring by wearing a colorful outfit. I almost left my camera at home but I’m glad I didn’t because we did an impromptu photo shoot when we walked past a flower stand.

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!
