Wow, I love this woman’s style, from the groovy glasses on top to the black patent brogues from Browns on the bottom. The apparel in between is courtesy of local designer Jacqueline Conoir. This woman is a self-described devotee of the label, understandably – that coat is fantastic. I also love the hip cut and auburn colour of her hair which make her green eyes pop. (She was wearing a psychedelic band around her finger as well; I thought it was a ring but it was a bandaid! Who knew?)
I know this woman from my mornings out and she looked so fabulous today I couldn’t resist some photos. She studied fashion design for a while and is a talented creator: the men’s T-shirt she is wearing she customized by altering the neckline, tying the shoulder, and hand-stitching on red sequins, see photo below. (She has another great hand-sequinned T-shirt of the Port Alberni water bombers.) The bag she sewed from a pattern given to her by a friend, before the days of laptop carriers, and she added red satin criss-cross lacing on the flap, zippers, and animal print lining. Heavenly.
