“Nobody ever crossed the road to meet a personality”: these are the wise words this woman learned from her style-conscious mother. And she also learned from her mother that it is important to dress to express who you are as an individual, which this woman so clearly does. In an age of little black dresses she says that her closet is full of ivories and pastels. Doesn’t she look fabulous? This woman works in the fashion industry. I have seen many images of Iris Apfel of New York lately, and this woman, while much younger, brings to mind the same individual flair for expression.
Check Vancouver’s society pages and you’ll probably find this woman, real estate agent Alexis Palkowski (propertiesbyalexis.com). What I like most about this outfit is her bold red, and the cross necklace makes me think Goth, not necessarily religion! Her long blond tresses are fabulous. (photo Feb 11)
I love this woman’s tailored look in black. In this case the solid palette beautifully highlights her swishy platinum hair and her gorgeous necklace. Seeing her on the street, the word elegance came to mind. She was reluctant to have her photo taken, but I’m glad she changed her mind (with the help of her partner – thank you). She looks great!
