Blue Wall Blue Coat Red Bag
Whenever it’s subzero out is when I wear a cute outfit. It’s just the way it always happens. Of course taking photographs becomes a challenge and yet I continue to stay in this line of work. After 9 years of this, I still find it challenging and exciting to find new backdrops, shoot in different ways, and style outfits. Those are the parts about this job that I love so much. The paper trail and irregular pay cheques are the biggest con, in my opinion. Job satisfaction aside, on this chilly day as we drove downtown and passed this building, I knew it was the right backdrop for my vintage London Fog coat. So we stopped and spent a total of 15 minutes before our fingers turned the colour red of my bag. Et voila! This editorial was born. Blue wall blue coat red bag was meant to be!
The accessories are my favourite part of this look. The hat is a vintage find I picked up years ago on a whim – see how I styled it with pink hair. The red double canteen bag, my second pop of colour if you will, is from Canadian designer Sneha Varma. It is fast becoming my go-to bag for trips because of its versatility in styling (casual or dressed up) and it’s compactness. Plus, a strap long enough to be crossbody is always a plus when traveling. I topped that off with my all-time favourite red matte lipstick Thrill Seeker by Smashbox.
