I caught this vibrant mother-daughter duo on Alberni Street. Ouch, don’t you love these metallic silver Dr. Martens shoes? Mom’s coat reminds me of dew-kissed berries and features fine applique and stitchery work – gorgeous, Italian-made. “Daughter” is studying at OCAD University in Toronto to be a stylist, which explains her magnificent pairing of the floaty chiffon skirt with this heavy-duty yet effervescent footwear. She tops the outfit with a beautiful poncho. Mom runs a bed and breakfast in North Vancouver, Crystal’s View, website here: http://www.bc-bedandbreakfast.com/.
