My friend Jen and I wandered through the vintage epicentre of Toronto this afternoon – i.e. Ossington and Queen – looking for style-savvy folks to photograph. The vintage store I Miss You is a reliable destination to find people with a distinct, personalized look – it’s where we bumped into the people featured below.
Despite it being a bit of a gloomy day, we did spot a few sharp dressers. I’m sure we could have sought far and wide for some others but instead we stopped at a café for croissants and called it a day.
These two are a sharp-looking pair. Highlights on him: the two-toned gray collar on his wool coat and his rough, brown boots. Highlights on her: UMM, the BAG! I didn’t even ask her if it was real fur (to the girl with the awesome bag, if you read this, is that real fur??), also the black cropped pants with black stockings and black high-heeled oxfords. I love seeing black used in an interesting way with sharp lines and a variety of textures and materials.
Oh and also, they both said they were feeling lousy and sick – it took a little coaxing to let us shoot them. So basically, this is what they look like on a bad day!
I cropped this photo to better showcase the quirky perks of each of their looks. Girl on the left: I love those glasses! Girl on the right: hot python gloves and wicked hair. Also, cropping it in a little shows off the lilacs behind the window. A bit of lively colour in the middle of winter 🙂
