Sidewalk Style – Week 8 With Karolina

Feb, 21st, 2014

I met Karolina on her way to a ballet performance. She stopped long enough for a quick chat and a couple photos. She visits the Vogue UK website for ideas. It was quite cold but she gave me a quick peek at the purple Diane von Furstenberg shift dress she was wearing.

Sidewalk Style – Week 11

Mar, 10th, 2013

For the second time in two days I’ve broken my rule for not photographing black on black outfits. However Khris is someone I photographed in July (click My Friend Khris). So it was time to make yet another exception…
You might think she’s is a model but she’s not. She’s a fashionista and a student. We attended Vancouver Fashion Week in September but today’s meeting was totally serendipitous. She just finished High Tea with her girlfriends and was headed home. She told me she was working two jobs and attending university. In June she plans to enroll in Law school. Our chance to catch-up was a nice way to end my Sunday.
If you look closely, you’ll see how her purse, watch and blouse all work together…
Several of these images were featured in the Community section of the Asian Pacific Post newspaper.
Khris’ wearing:
Coat Aritzia
Silk Tank Club Monaco
Purse Coach
Watch Michael Kors
Ring Club Monaco
Leather Leggings Club Monaco
Heels Aldo

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 25

Jun, 22nd, 2012

If you’ve read my Sidewalk Rant then you know I do not like scarves. However I had to make an exception when I met Otavia. I love how her scarf adds a new dimension to her black mini dress. She’s an Event Planner visiting Vancouver for the summer. She was meeting a friend for brunch.
