Style-Diet Shot – Flora

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

– Thomas Jefferson

Flora from Italy is wearing a necklace she made.  She is a jeweler by trade and also made her gold ring with precious and semi-precious stones.  Her shoes were made in India and bought in India, same with the scarf.  Flora lives in the Hills of Tuscany about a half hour North from where La Gioconda lived; I think of this impromptu photo session as Flora of the Mona Lisa smile.

Joseph in Vancouver’s Kitsilano in front of the Naam Restaurant
Shirt from the YWCA shop on 28th and Main

Instead of ‘second-hand’ Joseph uses the term “re-purposed” to describe his shirt. The white of his tee complements his hair and shirt, accentuating the square pattern among the blue of his button-down. Joseph’s black metallic glasses give a twist to the baggy look, providing a sophisticated edge.
