What Vancouver Was Wearing

We’re on course for the coldest June on record. It’s feeling like fall. Generally speaking, spring and fall are the major fashion moments of the year. Friday was a weird day because it looked like the Vancouverites in Yaletown were dressing for both. Below are the photos I took over half and hour, Friday afternoon.

The Cheeky Tiki Luau: Mermaids, grass skirts, and drinks with little umbrellas at The Rio Theatre
