I spotted this woman in a downtown shopping centre, and while I prefer outdoor shots I couldn’t resist this one. Isn’t her capelet beautiful, so feminine with delicate lace trim, the snowy collar and pom-pom ties, and petal-soft pinks, which are mirrored in the petal-like bows of her shoes. She bought this piece at a Japanese shop. And look how she has countered the softness with the bold red bag and black tights – wonderful! This woman is a fashion merchandiser.
Each piece in this ensemble could stand alone but together they are a symphony of style. We have leggings in ice-cream colours, socks with lace and ribbons, buckled white shoes with a triplet of bows, colourful distinctive earmuffs, pom pom fingerless mitts, and this magnificent flounced coat with capelet in black and white with bows all over, which she bought from a Japanese website. The back of the coat features an oversized bow as well. Stunning. This Vancouver woman also wears her own creations and is interested in studying fashion design.
