Sidewalk Style – Week 43

Oct, 22nd, 2012

Like Mother, Like Daughter

I first met Sunan in late July. Click Sunan to see her first outfit. When we chatted Monday she said she would have her daughter with her. I was excited about my first mother, daughter shoot! Sienna was shy at first but quickly started smiling and running. While Sunan admitted it was hard keep clean with a little-one, it was sooo nice to see a fashionable mom. While you might think Sunan is a model, she’s a founder of the local Vancouver financial technology company Payfirma.
Sunan is wearing:

Blouse Bluebird
Pants Gucci
Purse Hermes Birkin
Heels Charlotte Olympia

Sarah and her girlfriend were sitting in the front row of the fashion show. The bright orange heels were easy to spot! Sarah has a science related job but designed the dress she’s wearing!

Sidewalk Style – Week 34

Aug, 24th, 2012

   Every since I noticed Reesa coordinating activities at Vancouver Fashion Week
   (in March), we randomly pass each other once every couple weeks. This evening
   as she walked by with a group of friends she said with a big smile,
   “Today’s my birthday.” This is my gift to you. Happy Birthday!

Sidewalk Shoot – My Friend Khris

Jul, 15th, 2012

Brunch Date



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!

Sidewalk Style – Week 28

Svetlana was rushing to a birthday party but she stopped long enough to pose for a couple photos. Believe it or not, like most women on SidewalkRunway, Svetlana is not a model! She’s health care professional who likes to dress nice. Hmmmm… I wonder if the LaSenza bag contained a birthday present for her friend.
