Sidewalk Style – Week 15 With Kim

Apr, 5th, 2015

Kim’s best friend Jen

Fan Expo took place during Easter weekend but Kim didn’t attend. I spotted her on Alberni St. just outside Urban Merchant Tea. While chatting, she said the frills, feathers, bows and lace all have an over-the-top quality. It makes her feel like a lady of leisure when she dresses-up.
In addition to Urban Merchant Tea, Rose House in Kerrisdale and Pâtisserie Für Elise in downtown Vancouver are also popular tea house because they match the aesthetics of their outfits.
She also shared International Lolita Day is approaching. It’s a biannual event, held on the first Saturday of June, and the first Saturday of December. Kim is not an organizer and she’s not sure if Vancouver will host an event. However she’s considering attending the Seattle event. Click International Lolita Day for more information.
Several of these images will be featured in the Community section of the Asian Pacific Post newspaper.
Kim’s wearing:
Dress: Angelic Pretty
Wig: Lockshop Wigs
Hat: Handmade by Atelier Crossover (a local designer)
Purse: Vivienne Westwood
Hosiery: Baby the Stars Shine Bright
Heels: Dream V

Sidewalk Shoot – My Friend Limi

Jun, 8th, 2013

I photographed Limi on two random occasions in May. Click Limi’s first outfit and Limi’s second outfit to see what she wore. Today we met on a chilly Saturday afternoon to discuss a potential opportunity. As we were chatting she mentioned she’s never modeled. Instead she teaches literature in a foreign language. I also learned we share the same birthdate day! Then to my disbelief she confessed she’s a “jeans & T-Shirt” girl! Both earlier encounters were coincidental. Today she wore a cute yet simple outfit. She matched her white Dior heels (from a couple years ago) with her white Lacoste bag.
Limi’s wearing:

Necklaces Tiffanys
Bracelet Tiffanys
Purse Lacoste
Heels Dior

Sidewalk Style – Week 19

Oh my goodness. Rojene’s heels are sooo sexy! I would buy them in a heartbeat for my future girlfriend. She said she bought them a couple years ago.
As I was creating this post all I could think about was Justin Timberlake’s song, “Bringing Sexy Back!”

Sidewalk Style – Week 32

Aug, 5th, 2012

   Rie’s heels caught my eye. Not only did they have a unique shape, the heel was
   cut-out. They were made by an American designer but she bought them when
   she was in Japan.

Sidewalk Style – Week 27

Jul, 1st, 2012

   Min is new to Vancouver. Welcome! Her entire outfit is from Korea. When I asked
   for the name of the designer, she didn’t know. However, that’s a common
   response. I’m learning shopping in the West is different from shopping in Asia.
   I’ve heard from several ladies that Asian cities are filled with tiny boutiques
   with awesome outfits. In most cases the designer’s names are unknown.
