- pastel-nicotine faux fur coat, thrifted
- sleeveless purple mini-ish shift with wide ivory stripes on the bottom, thrifted, naturally
- teal tights under pink fishnets under crazy aqua socks, retail
- D&G shoes, thrifted
- turtleneck under dress, thrifted
- magic loupe, of course, made by O
Then on Tuesdays I wore:
- made-in-Hong Kong wild, too-short plaid pants, "100 percent bonded acrylic, dry clean only"
- shorty linen jacket from a chichi shop, Moule, from the 99% off sale rack (or so it seemed at the time so great was my joy at the bargain), gift coupon - I never shop there otherwise
- huge honking '70s polka-dot tie, hand me over (not "Hand it over!", although that might have worked too)
- magic loupe, always, an ultra-convenient quick substitute for reading glasses
- snowball coat, bird booties, France-made blouse and beret, thrfited but of course (except the booties, oops)
This man's project is called "Faces of Vancouver" and is modelled on the "Humans of New York" concept which focuses on slice-of-life photography rather than street style, which I find even more interesting. I recognized a few of the faces there from my street snapping days. If this young man finds his way to Bag and a Beret, a big thanks to you! (I can't comment on FB)
chilly here it's danged cold for Vancouver, -4C, which is 24.8F. We're too precious, I know. Stay warm or cool, whatever the case may be.
