We spent the other day window shopping in Gastown and chatted over coffee sitting in communal tables. The light filtering though the windows was perfect, and we were inspired to do an impromptu street style shot right then and there. Vancouver isn’t particularly a dressy city; you are far more likely to see athletic wear as you stroll downtown then something straight off the runway. But that is what makes dressing up, even just a little, so special. That extra bit of effort, and that little bit of whimsy and sophistication from said effort, makes a regular coffee date seem just a little extra special in return. Dress is Rachel Comey, Shoes Coach, & the bag Prada  circa 1992, practically vintage, last but not least the wonderful cat eye frames are Miu Miu.

Today we had coffee at the art gallery. After a week of rain, the sun finally came up between the clouds and gave the city a perfect, crisp Autumn in late November. This outfit is for window shopping and cool weather with your girlfriends. The pants are actually a Zara jumpsuit. Super comfortable but hangs just right, all I’ve done is add a sweater to create a fall look. Shoe and sunglasses add polish, but maintain understated.  The big maroon bag adds to the fall palate, giving everything harmony. It felt just the right amount of dressed down in a casual city.
