Anna

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Styling and photography of Anna by Daura Lee

Redheads clearly aren’t getting enough hype. I decided to dedicate this shot to them by accentuating the qualities that make them unique, such as the extreme highlights in their tousled hair and their fair yet oil-free skin which give off a soft and healthy glow.  I’ve always been jealous of redheads in the same way that I was jealous of left-handed people. You can call them witches and burn them at the stake, or simply favour the fact that they are a rare and therefore special kind!

Color and texture are two main criteria for a look when it comes to fashion. I was loving the texture of this linen blazer and sheer top, and decided to dominate the shot with amber orange and hints of aqua, some of my favourite tones at the moment.  In order to accentuate Anna’s hair, I attempted a seamless color transition from her hair to her eye makeup, all the way down to the detail on her sleeveless sheer top.

What interests me in fashion is the surrealism as opposed to the practical and mundane. I think this would be a great everyday look for Anna, but it’s not how Anna would feel comfortable dressing to work.  She just graduated from civil engineering. Match it up with a mustard hardhat and white stilettos on site, Anna? I think not.

It was so much fun styling and shooting Anna. I can’t wait to do more shoots with other friends. If you’ve enjoyed this entry, stay tuned for more of my photography by liking us on facebook or subscribing to the blog via bloglovin’.

There is no better way to embrace the summer than with vibrant colours. I’m loving my multi-coloured high heels by Aldo Rise X Preen. I got them on sale at the end of last season and now I finally get to rock them! As I was leaving my house to meet up with fellow Montreal blogger Jessica of Westmount Fashionista, I realized that I might be just a little overdressed. One might think that to fix such a problem you should take an item or two off, or maybe change what you’re wearing entirely. I fixed my little issue by throwing on this casual snapback from H&M, which really helped to tone things down a notch, and not to mention add a little charm to the look. Fashion week and fancy balls are for uptight outfits but our city streets welcome urban chic!

Psssst! If you have not yet voted for me for the Twin-Set Canada bloggers contest, please do so that I can be on my way to Milan fashion week! You can vote once every 24 hours.
