This is Sandra. I’ve featured her in this blog twice before, here and here. She is the quintessential rocker chick with studs, boots, leather, big hair, and Jackie O sunglasses. I see her fairly regularly since we are in a “heavy metal band” together (a very, very bad one) and she is always game for a great photo op. This architectural circle required her presence. She up-cycles clothing with studs and other custom details.
1. Beauties in Black Hats
To see more than three beautifully-dressed hatted women walking together in Vancouver is remarkable, but to see ten or more is traffic-stopping. I saw these leggy lovelies in their wide-brimmed black hats and LBDs on Granville Street where they were promoting a new fragrance, La Petite Robe Noire (The Little Black Dress), directing consumers to The Bay for free samples. What a clever marketing campaign; it certainly got my attention, although I never went for my free sample…
2. Sporty and Elegant in a White Hat
Then on my way home I spotted the beautiful woman below crossing the street. I love her all-white ensemble punctuated by that lovely buttercup-yellow scarf with watercolour blues and her round amber sunglasses. She describes her look as sporty and elegant and is a firm believer that a well-placed hat can elevate one’s look to a higher level (and disguise uncooperative hair!). I agree.
Today I ran into two people I have style-eyed in the past. Always a pleasure…
The first time this woman appeared was February 27, when she had candy-floss pink hair. The pink has since been replaced with this snappy auburn, but she is still studying fashion design and still looking fabulous. Here she is with her friend, also winningly attired in a tuxedo-style vest over a T, who just arrived from Ottawa where he is a business student.
This next woman I first style-eyed here, September 30. She still shines with confidence and sports that fantastic mane of hair. I have included a closeup photo of her jewellery. The top piece was given to her by a friend and the bottom-most pendant is a reworked Victorian era piece used by a lady to carry change. Isn’t this a great summery look?
