Elizabeth

Sweetness upon sweetness

Posted By on Wed, Apr 11, 2012 at 4:00 AM

Well, as you all know (if you’re even giving me a chance anymore) I have been struggling to say on top of my youlookfiiine-ness. Well, those days are OVER. Walking to work this morning I was praying to bump into someone who had all the right style and then, like a body of water in a desert after not drinking for ten days (too much?) I saw Elizabeth. Her coral maxi skirt flowing beautifully in the wind caught my eye and I marched right on up to her. Elizabeth, an 18-year old Dalhousie Costume Studies student is just sweetness upon sweetness with her matching-to-her-skirt lipstick, her strawberry hued hair and her ballin’ attitude. She never leaves home without Burt’s Bees and is hooked on lookbook.nu (the most amazing self-submitted style site).

Josh

Weekend warrior

Posted By on Tue, Apr 10, 2012 at 4:00 AM

Well everyone, there’s a new guy in town (and he’s only staying for the weekend). It’s been a while since I photographed a dude and Josh was just what I was waiting for. Who doesn’t love a K-Way jacket? Who doesn’t love Ray-Bans? Who doesn’t love a guy in a baseball cap? And lastly (cause you’re probably over the questions), who doesn’t love a guy with a bang on shade of denim with a rolled up cuff? I really like what Josh has going on with his shoes. You know? And guys, he LOVES these shoes. He got them at Banana Republic on sale ($150 down to $30). Josh is from Toronto, goes to school in Fredericton and is in town for the weekend.

Brad

Tie one on

Posted By on Fri, Apr 6, 2012 at 4:00 AM

How could I ever walk by a tie, letting it go undocumented? I COULDN’T. Brad is a visual designer (for a software company, if I remember correctly) and, fittingly, allows his style to influenced by the design world. He ties ties once or twice a week, is from Saint John, NB (ME TOO) and reads booooooom.com and Vice Magazine on the reg.

Bree

Floral pants? Oh yes.

Posted By on Thu, Apr 5, 2012 at 4:00 AM

Photographed on Friday, Bree is the perfect girl for a snowy day like today to remind us of warmer weather. Bree is 17, grew up in New York and was really the cherry on the top of my day. I love floral pants, I love a denim jacket and I LOVE a scarf (especially when it’s leopard print). So much texture! Bree is a Dal Science student, is open to any and all styles and likes to read Seventeen and Glamour magazines.

Erin

Coat appeal

Posted By on Wed, Apr 4, 2012 at 4:00 AM

Erin and her friend Kate (a supersweet stylist at Life Salon) claim they saw me creeping them from a store on Spring Garden. I tried to refute this accusation but then I realized I’ve been creeping people for the past year and a half on that very street. Call it a loss. Erin’s coat is what got me. It was the richest chocolate brown suede jacket with a faux fur trim. A NSCAD textiles student, Erin likes to strike when the sale iron is HOT at Club Monaco. She never leaves home without her phone, or very cool-ly, her sketch book.

Alexis

Comfort dictates style

Posted By on Tue, Apr 3, 2012 at 12:05 PM

Alexis was just what I needed to get myself back into the youlookfiiine groove. Visiting from Vancouver, Alexis lets comfort dictate her style and might I say she be workin’ it! Comfort never looked so good. She even says she LOVES her Spandex. Now tell me, does it GET more comfy than that? I LOVE her bag from Big Buddha, I love how she wears black and brown like it’s always been all the rage and mostly I just dig her ‘tude and that total cha-ching kinda smile!

Rebecca

Jacket jealousy

Posted By on Mon, Feb 20, 2012 at 4:00 AM

I had my friend Mieks on my mind as I was walking to meet her for an early morning brew (coffee guys, not beer) earlier today. Mieks has a habit of wrapping her scarf around and around—just like Rebecca! So, when I saw this gem PERFECT for youlookfiiine I called it fate and decided to ask Rebecca to stop. Rebecca was on a serious breakfast hunt after a Tuesday night on the town so I made it quick. Her jacket and her Mieks-esque scarf were what caught my eye and of course those scuffed up with love shoes didn’t hurt either. Rebecca is usually a NSCAD student but is enjoying a semester off and likes to shop thrift. That BEAUT of a jacket is from the Salvation Army on Green Street. Seriously.

Chad

Photo finish

Posted By on Fri, Feb 17, 2012 at 4:00 AM

Chad’s style is right up my alley. I snapped this sneaky pic when he was distracted by something picture-worthy. Anyway. I dig this guy's plaid (he loves it—and I KNOW this to be true), beard, toque and desert boots. Y’all KNOW I’m a sucker for a beard. How can you not love a man in an awesome wash denim skinny jean? Chad likes to shop thrift and even scored a wool knit Christian Dior beaut of a jacket for $14.99—I know, I was there and I was JEALOUS. I still am. He likes classic and quality made pieces that lend themselves nicely to the folklore and banjo love this guy’s got going on and I really like him!

Enrique

Pops of colour

Posted By on Thu, Feb 16, 2012 at 4:00 AM

Enrique had all of the signs for YLF—corduroys, a pop of colour and Raybans. Y’all know I’m a sucker for them! I caught up with him on his way to work for the Community Culture and Heritage Department—say that fives times fast. Enrique likes to shop "nowhere in particular", just wherever he sees something that catches his eye. His style is inspired by comfort and he was an absolute treat to stop and chat with as we bonded over out mutual decision to wear some pops of red here and there (check his tie).

Madelaine

She's a rainbow

Posted By on Wed, Feb 15, 2012 at 1:30 PM

Madelaine was just the fiiind I was hungry for. The fiiind I’d been waiting for! Madelaine is a student AND A CIRCUS PERFORMER. Colour and whimsy (if you couldn’t tell already) inspire her style and she likes to shop chez Elsie’s. She is also a regular clothing-swap participant where she claims she has found many awesome duds. Madelaine never leaves home without a hat and I can just tell she has a collection of ‘em to choose from.

Ley

Euro zone

Posted By on Tue, Feb 14, 2012 at 4:00 AM

Ley, Ley, Ley. What a treat he ended up being. I saw Ley from across the street and lucky for me, he was familiar with youlookfiiine! I find this always helps when I am trying to get some dudes up on the blog. Ley’s outfit is from all corners of the world. Okay, one corner: Europe. But still! The jacket and sweater are from Greece, the scarf is from Scotland and the sneaks are from our own local boutique on South Park Street, Fresh Goods. This independent web designer lets Europe inspire his style and buys whatever he likes, wherever he likes. My kinda man.

John

Fuzzy buddy

Posted By on Mon, Feb 13, 2012 at 4:00 AM

John was a head-turner and certainly worth backtracking a few paces for (check the SWEATER!). Working for the Canadian Cancer Society, John lets his 9-5 do most of the wardrobe shot calling. Business casual is the game, but he let’s comfort and weather-friendly clothing work their way into his wardrobe. His hat is from a little shop in Lunenberg and he likes to shop H&M to impress those high up work execs! I like his beard. I love his beard actually—always been a sucker for them.

Irana

Daily dose of orange

Posted By on Fri, Feb 10, 2012 at 4:00 AM

Irana. I saw her cutting through a parking lot with a friend and that orange scarf blowing in the January wind. In other words, I stopped her and asked a few questions. Irana is (besides a total knock out) a Dalhousie student alllll the way from Alberta. She loves classic and timeless pieces and styles and never leaves the house without a scarf (my fashion-blogger senses tell me she has a whole bunch) and her mitts. Perfectly suited for this time of year!

Tristan

A breath of fresh air

Posted By on Thu, Feb 9, 2012 at 4:00 AM

Tristan was the breath of fresh air I needed. A little asymmetrical zipper, a little loose curl and I am a new woman. Tristan was awesome to chat with. Truly! Paying the bills by putting time in at a local hotel, Tristan has just recently decided that he can have fun with fashion. What a revelation! He decided there was more to life than plan t-shirts and laid back denim. So, he hit the blogs, hit the style forums and guess what y’all? That’s even where he shops. He goes on to style forums and trades fellow users—their wares for his. This is a thing???? Besides bonding over how fun it is to explore your fashion side, we commiserated over the fact that his sister just ran over his pair of Wayfarers (convo sparked by my ‘bans).

Justin

Three times lucky

Posted By on Wed, Feb 8, 2012 at 12:23 PM

You may recognize my stylish friend and co-worker, J Bird. This is his THIRD time on YLF. I love his boyish but manly and stylish but kind of rugged outfit. His ClubMaster Raybans don’t hurt, either! The coat is from Banana Republic (right Justin? I’m not %100 sure) and his Hurley khaki trousers are from our very own City Streets (who knew? Think Park Lane). J Bird is among the style elite in my circle of friends and totally deserves this third feature!
