With love from Russia

A few months ago I had the pleasure to meet and work with a very talented (and lovable) photographer named Ilya Fedorov who came all the way from Russia.
You may remember I blogged about this shoot a little while ago as it was quite an adventure hiking through the woods in a corset and long lace skirt.
What I did not mention is that the photo's would be featured exclusively in Russia's 'Happy Plus' magazine.
The Russians have been most kind to me, this is my 3rd interview for a Russian publication:)

















Scout Boutique's annual Fall fashion show

Last week I pleasure of modeling at Scout Boutique's annual Fall Fashion party.
Scout Boutique is by far my favorite little shop here in Vancouver, so I was very exited and honored when they asked me to model in their show. They carry cute retro and Pin Up inspires get-up's for all shapes and size which the show reflected. I'm always happy when people are open minded enough to use models with different sizes and body shapes. Variety is the spice of life!

Here are some shots from that night.

Seattle

The other half and I took a day trip to Seattle (one of my favorite cities) for some *early* birthday celebrations and to see our buddies The Independents play at The Funhouse (by the way if you haven't heard of this band you should check them out, they are amazing)

The first thing we usually do when we hit Seattle is drive straight to Pike Place market to get a piroshky from the Piroshky Piroshky bakery. Then I head down to Nordstrom Rack to spend all my money on sunglasses and Betsey Johnson jewelry...*sigh*

We also decided to be cheesy and touristy and have dinner at The Crabpot, which was somewhat dissappointing as the service was awefull, noone smiled and everyone seemed grumpy and fed up of being there. Jerry (my husband) called the hostesses 'cranky crabs' on the way out:p

After dinner we headed to the venue for the gig and hung out with The Independents for a bit, as usual they put on a great show as well...
We drove home after the gig in the pouring rain and pitchblack darkness..It was quite cinematic, like our car should have broken down and us ending up with some serial killers. (a'la Texas Chainsaw or House of a 1000 Corpses)
But thanks to loud music keeping us awake we made it home at around 4.30 in the morning...
