Ride or Die: Part 2 (Vancouver, BC)

It’s July 1st!!  Happy Canada Day!  It’s felt like such a long time since I got together with the ladies of Ride or Die Blog Sharai Grant and Jordyn McClelland.  Today seems like an appropriate month to celebrate Part 2 of our fun shoot together shot by Melissa Wong Photography in Gastown. 

In February I moved my studio to Gastown with my fabulous studio-roomie Hailey Gerrits.  I have been exploring Gastown since I was a kid and I’m so happy to be able to call it my new second home.  As a tribute to the neighborhood I gave the ladies of Ride or Die the challenge of styling a look with my jewelry from Dream Apparel (a clothing store in Vancouver that has been providing local designers with a place to sell their wears since 1993).  Dream was the first store to represent my work as a designer when I was 20 years. It was fun to play dress up in their shop and to see what Sharai and Jordyn chose to pair with their outfits.

We decided to browse the shops along Cordova Street and do a little shooting as we walked by.  Thanks to L'Atelier Home, Artemisia Clothing and Old Faithful for letting us explore your shops and shoot as we shopped your fabulous goods!  So many fun places to see in Gastown, it never gets old! My personal shopping list from each store? I can't stop buying the Ceramic Deer and Moose hooks to hang my jewelry on from L'Atelier Home, I'm up to 8 now and in need of more! My boyfriend is totally hooked on the men's Burning Barbershop cologne by D.S. and Durga and the Cedar Incense at Old Faithful, great place to be inpired for men's gifts.  Artemisia Clothing has the most beautiful and feminine summer dresses that everytime I walk by I want to purchase one of everything, I'm saving for one of their embroidered boho dresses that's in their window right now!

I asked the girls for an update on their summer plans and about their summer “lust list” here’s what they are up to now: 

"This summer Jordyn and I are going on a road trip with a couple of our friends to soak up the sun and create some great memories.  Summer is a time Jordyn and I like to focus on friends and family. We’re also looking forward to some Summer collaborations we're going to have with some great local artists!"

Summer clothing they can’t live without: 

"We can't stop pairing our shorts-overalls with our slip-on mules. We're also swooning over pastel colours and body chains."
