Jennifer Lee Miss Chinese Vancouver 2013, My Sidewalk Shoot With…

Dec, 14th, 2014

This was a planned shoot and Jennifer has modeled before. If you attended the Miss Chinese Vancouver   charity event in December 2013 then you’ll recognize her as contestant #8 and ultimately the 1st Runner Up.   Proceeds of the event benefited the Canadian Cancer Society. The pageant is significant for Jennifer for two reasons: First she lost a close relative to cancer. Secondly, she’s been a dancer for the pageant for years. I imagine it was quite interesting to participate as a young girl then blossom into a confident contestant.
As we were discussing the details the night before the shoot, Jennifer said she owned a red dress. We both agreed it was perfectly timed for a Christmas themed photo shoot. Aside from fashion shows and charity events, Christmas parties are the perfect time to leave the rain boots behind and wear something bold. She bought her bandage style dress from a small, no-name boutique in China. She paired it with Guess heels and a Chanel purse.

Jessica Luxe, My Sidewalk Shoot With…

Nov, 16th, 2014

Jessica models for her blog Her style is to make every outfit unique and she loves experimenting with color and patterns. In a recent post she wore silver ankle boots, a patterned skirt and an oversized sweater with the sleeves cut off. Since we’re both fashionistas I thought it would be fun to collaborate. We shopped on a Saturday afternoon and our inspiration started when Jessica found a faux fur jacket. From there I paired it with a chocolate brown turtle neck sweater, olive green pants, 4” ankle boots and a matching clutch. To complete the look I suggested a Russian style fur hat (made in Italy) from Blubird on Alberni St. We shot our collaboration the next day. Jessica said the 4” boots were a compromise but otherwise she felt the look was the “best version of her!”   Meaning, it was a day where her hair, make-up and outfit were all on-point. I loved the style connection and resulting sexy look. In addition to her blog Jessica works in the financial sector and is taking marketing classes.
