I loved this woman’s pastels paired with those awesome metallic silver Dr. Martens boots. Great combination. She bought the robin’s-egg-blue bow tie at House of Vintage Fashion, which is one of my favourite downtown vintage shops. Her soft spring colours were a visual oasis among the harder oxbloods and blacks that seem to dominate the sidewalks this autumn. This woman is an opera singer.
There he was, shining in the doorway of Hotel Vancouver, wearing a fantastic patterned bow tie, belt, and pocket square, and a baby blue pinstripe jacket against a ground of white shirt and pants. The ruby deck shoes added the perfect colour counterpoint. This Vancouverite, originally from Edmonton, was waiting for his friends for a night on the town. Superb.
I style-eyed this man late last week and what struck me first about him were his plaid vest, striped bow tie, and red shoelaces – but upon closer inspection I was delighted to find the strings of a bolo tie hanging down behind the bow tie, a colourful beaded wristband, colourful rings, a leather key chain in his pocket, and pink socks. I love that tie-on-tie action! This man is from Japan and he is in Vancouver for his studies.
