Street Chic

Thank you

I'd just like to thank my good longtime friend Troy, Asian Troy. I state Asian because I have more than 1 friend named Troy.
Thank you for restoring my faith in what I do and all the kind words I needed to hear. You are an angel and helped me through a successful day of shooting.

Thank you Troy. Your calm demeanor and patience really saved me today. I'm so grateful.


Also to my family who continue to believe in me and support me and remind me to never give up on a dream and that extends to my close friends who understand what I do.

So answer these questions and I will submit it along with your photo.

Good luck! Remember to send it to rafael.escobar700@gmail.com

Check it, Google," The Province Look Book Vancouver Fashion Week 2011"
* there are some of you from the past that I'd love to consider filling out the questionaire on the posting. Especially the ones I had mentioned "I would wear this" or "brilliant" "epic"," if I were a girl i would wear this", "one of my favourite looks". Please.

The reunion


Caught this couple on my way into work. I rudely interrupted an obvious mini reunion, but they were kind enough to let me get this shot. They are all so stylish with their own personal touches. If I had the time I would have loved to photograph them individually. Superb. Thank you all for the photo.

Ripped jeans


The ripped skinny jeans looks flattering on this petite body type. Stripes are back and she wears it well with a smart leather jacket. Again, very simple, but very stylish.
* I'd love for you to consider filling out the questionaire for the Lookbook.

Edgy chic


Again a very simple outfit which speaks volumes. A sport coat with a simple tee and cool leggings, I believe are from American Apparel. Chic but edgy and very modern. Love it.

*I'd love it if you can fill out the questionaire for the Lookbook.

Simple in a hat


Cutie pie. The hat looks fantastic with this look. I think without it, it would leave this outfit incomplete. Well accessorised and simple.

Back in Black


"Can't go wrong witrh black". Love the layers and differnt fabrics.

Couples


I was drawn toward this couple because of the girlfriend or wife, I'll have to admit. The gentleman is dressed casual and proper but the female looks impeccable. I love how she created this look. Beautiful sweater exposing her belt and  cowboy boots looks so chic! I love her outfit.

Cass


Even the clutter behind her can't deter your eyes from this perfectly styled look.
Brilliant.

THe New Cargo


A perfectly styled classic outfit with an edge. Well made clothes head to toe. The deep v-neck sweater is paired well with the circle scarf and the new cargo pant.

Shopping


Shopping in style. The gentleman is a known photographer in Victoria, B.C. phhttp://www.flickr.com/wesshelley

Denim Harem


Brilliant outfit featuring the harem denim. Styled perfectly with colourful graphic cropped tee and leather jacket looks fabulous. The black boots, weaved gold belt and high bun completes a very trendy and chic outfit.
* remember top fill the questionaire for the Lookbook. Thanks, so good to see you!
Sweetheart, I don't have your email for the questionairre fore The Province Lookbook. Can you send it to me ASAP!? Thank you. :)

Simplicity


Just put on a colourful zip up and a modern pair of jeans and a tee looks understated but modern. Always wear cool kicks with this kind of look. Something special as a focal point and accessorise, as he has.

High Waisted Denim


The high waisted wide leg denim. Looks flattering and comfortable paired with with a waist length leather jacket and smart knitwear looks chic and fresh.

Elizabeth Taylor dies of heart failure

Published March 23, 2011
Hollywood icon Elizabeth Taylor died Wednesday of congestive heart failure about six weeks after entering Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. She was 79.
The two-time Oscar winner's four children were with her at the time of death.
"My mother was an extraordinary woman who lived life to the fullest, with great passion, humor, and love," son Michael Wilding said in a statement. "We know, quite simply, that the world is a better place for Mom having lived in it. Her legacy will never fade, her spirit will always be with us, and her love will live forever in our hearts."
Michael Wilding was joined at his mother's bedside by brother Christopher Wilding and half-sisters Liza Todd and Maria Burton, according to Taylor's publicist, Sally Morrison.
News of Taylor's death had a great impact in Hollywood and immediately there were reactions and tributes from multiple celebrities.
"Elizabeth, on every level, was a mensch. Kind, generous, brave," said Jane Fonda in a communique.
Michael Caine, via Twitter, wrote: "So sad to hear about my beautiful friend Elizabeth Taylor. She was a great human being."
Meanwhile, popular television host Barbara Walters said that she had been in contact with Taylor in the days just before her death.
"She was in the hospital, but she was doing well, and I think it's a surprise that she died because we who were in touch felt that she might make it," Walters said on ABC's "Good Morning America."
In addition, she said that her friend had commented that of the more than 50 films she starred in during her career, she would like the public to remember her for her role in "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" for which she won one of her two Oscars.
Former CNN talk show host Larry King said via Twitter that the death of Taylor, "a great friend," means having to say goodbye to "a great star and one gutsy woman."

*A fashion Icon of her time, Elizabeth Taylor passes away. I'll admit I haven't watched many of her films other than 'Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolf". May she rest in peace.

 

Rihanna in Vogue


We’ve never known the Bajan sensation Rihanna to have a dilemma with her body, so her presence on the cover of VOGUE magazines “Shape Issue” is rather interesting. Then again, what woman is not constantly working on her physique? Nevertheless, Rihanna graces the cover and the pages of the April 2011 issue like none other could have, photographed by the amazing Annie Leibovitz. With her fiery red hair, matching lip color, and flesh tone revealing gown, she poses as the youngest woman of color to cover the American magazine, and speaks with Jonathan Van Meter on topics like her fashion transitions, her rebellious style, and being comfortable with her body. Take a look at the spread below where Tonne Goodman served as the fashion editor, along with the behind the scenes video footage and be sure to pick up the April issue of Vogue.

I love her, I love her! Great cover!
