Style-Diet Shot – Alex Smoking Lily with vintage chair

  “On matters of style, swim with the current. On matters of principle, stand like a rock.”

 – Thomas Jefferson

Alex is wearing a mauve Smoking Lily Dress with skeleton and flower prints, http://www.smokinglily.com/.  Apparently the more edgy prints sell better in Vancouver than Victoria.  Interesting…. The earrings and necklace  jewellery is passed down from Alex’s grandmother: high-end Sherman costume jewellery from many moons ago.  The bracelet is bought and made in EU of  resin and gold leaf.  The bag, bought “new’, is actually vintage/recycled sink remade into a handbag and purchased in Sheffield, England.  The chair is vintage 1950s in vinyl leopard skin.

The Style-Diet Shot celebrates individuals with unique style, wearing at least one article of clothing acquired via the Stephens’ Sisters Shopping Diet. It must be local, sustainable, second-hand/re-purposed, inherited or ethically produced. If you can’t find clothing fitting that criteria then it must be from a country with stellar human rights records.
