Summer

My sister loves to style my outfits and do hair and makeup that I would never do myself.  Letting someone creative have free rein sometimes allows you to see yourself in a completely different way.  Imagine my shock when I saw these photos . . .

Of course, with a completely different look, you have to get in character.  Also, my sister has an amazing way of bringing a whole different attitude out of me.

Cool Cargo

Sometimes I start an outfit with an inspiration. For my farmer’s market shopping this Sunday, I was inspired by this Ralph Lauren ad.

This ad really captured my imagination: air-dried tousled hair, army green jacket, white shirt, long pendant necklace and aviators.

My version:

army jacket

It was a cool Sunday in Southern Ontario, perfect for visiting farmers’ markets and enjoying local fruits and vegetables, which is a real treat in my part of the world.

Portfolio Update

If you have read my “About” page, you know that I require updated professional photos from time to time.  These photos need to capture different “looks” that could be useful in showing a designer that I would be able to reflect the mood of his or her clothing, or an editor, photographer or other person that I could be right for some other work.  The photos could show work that I have done, or can do, sort of like a resume.

Recently, I had a photo shoot with up-and-coming Toronto fashion photographer Michael Ho which resulted in some “soft and natural”  looks for my collection.  You can click “People” on his website for a few more pictures from this shoot.

I enjoyed doing this shoot, and these are from one of my favourite sets of photos:

Kindly note that these photos may not be reproduced for any purpose other than in connection with my own advertising or that of the photographer!

Is he talented or what??

Favourite dress:  Zara (where else?!)
