Who wouldn’t want these women as friends? Left is Sue from around Vancouver and right is Suzanne from the Toronto area, and I met up with them when Suzanne recently came to town. They are both style bloggers – what a surprise.
Sue made that dotted coat and even custom-made the buttons (I regret that I didn’t get the buttons in this shot). What a great colour combination with that coral top and checked blue blouse. And those puddle-hoppers – priceless. Suzanne’s maxi coat is vintage, of course. I love how the patterns of her coat, umbrella, and scarf play so well off each other.
Sue’s blog is called A Colourful Canvas, and she says: “Mostly I just sew stuff and then pose awkwardly in photos around Metro Vancouver. With a sense of humour.” Don’t let her lightness fool you – she is a highly respected sewist around the world and a talented artist.
At Suzanne Carillo‘s self-named blog, she says: “I’m vintage obsessed, live and breathe art, and cater to the demands of a pug named Zoë.” Suzanne has two Etsy stores, one for her graphics-themed artworks and custom jewellery here and one called VintageBySuzanne for unique vintage clothing. Suzanne has a dedicated fan base addicted to her humour and style.
Oh, the fun we had.
