(2/2) this lady exudes power in her appearance, and exercises balance in the form of minimalism while simultaneously emphasizing specialties. this is something she masters in all aspects of her life. she wonderfully manages the fine line between treating yourself and overindulgence. though generally understatedly dressed, (along with a shy personality and a giggle like a little school girl), she will contrast that with a #headpiece that's a head turner, and she will walk with such quiet confidence. she'll go to a nice restaurant, but instead of splurging on all accounts, she will simply order a glass of champagne (and maybe a small dessert), and she will know that is plenty and savour every sip and bite. its kind of funny how much her personal #style parallels her outlook on life, and how much she taught me about life by the way she dresses. I don't think I've every met someone who makes such an effort to appreciate the finer things with such unpretentious intentions. she never overdoes it, and in doing so she truly understands the art of enjoying the process. if I had to associate her with a single word, it would be "attitude". it's aaaaall about #attitude, baby.

💎 creative direction, styling & #Linnea jewellery & accessories by yours truly, @lindamikaeladesigns_yvr 📍 location : #PedersenStudio, #Edmonton . (1/2) Miss Vepe was a regular client at a hat shop I interned at a few summers ago in #Ottawa. the first time she walked in I was convinced she was some kind of African #royalty. she just has a presence about her. she quickly became one of my favourite customers because she wore the most unusual pieces. I always knew that seeing her name in the books meant fun designs were ahead. imagine the piece of felt that makes up your average floppy #felt hat for example...now divide that into two...we would give the #cap part a nice #shape and some #detailing, and flip the #brim part upside down and create this sort of #crown on her. this woman never leaves her house without a hat on, and these two are her signature styles.
VP would never be caught dead in a #hat like this, but...I only had a small amount of #Sinamay leftover and I wanted to make something that I could work with in the future. the fact that I made a little #headpiece, period, was going to have to be dedication enough. a #fascinator would have done her even more injustice... #MyPearls #collection #lookbook #jewellery #accessories #millinary #LindaMikaelaDesigns #Vancouver #YVR
