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.
This man is a pillar of style, literally (he is very tall), and his look, all black with a touch of red, really accentuated his lithe panther-like presence as he strode down Georgia Street. The long flaps of the furry hat and his skinny black jeans in particular do a fantastic job of lengthening that stunning vertical line. Isn’t that a great hat? He bought it at Adrenaline.
I caught the woman right a couple of days ago (see post Jan. 16), but today I happily stumbled across her in a crisp casual outfit as she was walking with her daughter, which I suppose is not too surprising in the downtown core of a city the size of Vancouver. How could I resist the chance to snap them together? It’s clear that the style eye runs in the family – both look smashing and they are incredibly photogenic. I’m particularly loving Daughter’s bold animal print legwear with her white ankle banding over black boots, and Mom’s chemical-white jacket, skinny jeans and black shoes.
