Sidewalk Style – Week 30 With Salwin

Jul, 19th, 2015

I was on my way to meet a friend when a tall slender lady strode by. “Darn,” I said to my self, “I’m going to be late.”  She too was on her way to meet a friend. When I asked about her outfit, I was surprised by her response. She doesn’t spend time looking at fashion blogs or following the trends. When I asked about her inspiration she wasn’t motivated by a feeling or a mood. She simply picked her H&M dress to meet her girlfriend for lunch. At any rate it was a flattering dress and I’m glad we had a chance to meet!

Sidewalk Style – Week 4 with Sofie

Jan, 21st, 2014

I met Sofie on her way to her marketing job. She’s not required to dress-up but she does so anyway. We only had a few minutes but I was amazed by the number of nice shots we were able to capture. As a result, I forgot to ask what inspired her outfit. I followed up via e-mail and here’s what wrote.
“My outfit definitely revolved around the skirt. I’ll stick to a generally neutral/black/white base and then keep it interesting with graphic patterns or a pop of color. I think I bought this skirt 5 years ago (yes 5!) and the pattern is still quite current. About a year ago I had the skirt tailored to be more suited to my style today (it used to be more A-line).”
She also mentioned her ankle boots were a great Boxing Day find.
Several of these images were featured in the Community section of the Asian Pacific Post newspaper.

Blouse Aritzia

Mijune Pak, Follow Me Foodie Starring As The Gingerbread Judge!

Nov, 28th, 2013

Mijune has a popular food blog called Follow Me Foodie. She’s the Resident Food Columnist for the local weekly newspaper WE and she’s a fashionista. Click here to see Mijune’s Yaletown outfit and here to see Mijune’s Deighton Cup outfit.
Tonight we met at the Hyatt Regency hotel for the Gingerbread Lane contest.   I missed the judging and awards ceremony but we met in the lobby. I was amazed by the intricate and elaborate displays. The first and second place winners are shown above but I estimate there are 30 – 40 entries. According to the rules, everything must be edible. I saw Wheat Chex used at roofing shingles and Red Hots that resembled tiny flowers.
The Hyatt is located next to the Burrard Sky Train station. Admission is free and photos are permitted but the display ends Friday, December 27th.
