Elite Image will be updating its’ website soon. We wanted to give you a peak at the photo shoot we did with http://karolinaturek.com/ today.
This weekend we had an amazing shopping experience with one of our past clients! After having twins Leslie wanted to update her look for her new and exciting day to day life with her kids. From heading to the park or dropping the kids Aritzia came in hand for building this new wardrobe.
Attached photo of Alicia with Patricia whom makes everything run smoothly when we come by Aritzia, and another photo … as we had a quick closet clean out today. Alicia is making sure Valerie’s pants are the right size going into fall! Jeggings.
To be quite honest… it is not much of a surprise that Vancouver has been rated the third worst dressed city in the world. However, on the flip side Vancouver is also one of the most active and fit cities in the world. Perhaps this is why active wear and yoga pants have become the form for everyday attire.
Elite Image has always maintained (and advised our clients) that active wear it is not appropriate attire for the workplace, casual Fridays, or social events out on the town. Active wear is for the gym, sporting activities, and yoga.
So in Vancouver’s defense, we are considered one of the most healthy cities around – enjoying easy access to skiing, snowboarding, mountain biking, hiking and golfing. In our experience with clients we have found many individuals who have a hard time separating their active lifestyle from their everyday life. So it is important to separate ones wardrobe into work attire, active wear, and social activities.
We do not expect Vancouver to follow in the footsteps of Montreal’s high fashion or Toronto’s business minded lifestyle as these don’t represent the ethos that embody the west coast lifestyle. However, Vancouver can certainly be a fashionable city in its own right, why not show off our active bodies that we work so hard to maintain! In our opinion, moving us off of the “worst-dressed” cities list is easy to do.
Here are a few tips
- Ladies: switch out your yoga pants, runners and hoodies for a great fitting pair of jeans, heels or flats, a blazer and scarf.
- Men: ditch your running shorts, windbreakers and running shoes for some nice denim, fashionable sneakers, a nice fitting tee and a casual sport coat!
If you need help in being more fashion forward or just switching things up, call Elite Image. We’re happy to help, and that’s why we are here so feel free to drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
This weekend we began the fall season with a bang. A couple of closet clean outs and one major men’s shop at Holt’s. Gavin the go to guy at Holt’s and elite image put together some amazing pieces for fall. From a Tom Ford check shirt layered under a charcoal slim cut Burberry suit to a warm Mackage wool coat. See attached pics!
I was on my way to Turks&Caico’s with a quick stop over in NYC to meet a friend.The trip was cancelled because of hurricane Irene, so with the airport closed I was stranded in NYC.We took advantage of the downtime by shopping, cooking, and going to the movies:) We managed to find our way out to Short Hills Mall before the city shut down and the tolls closed ,great mall with some great shops. We both purchased some electric blue Current Elliot jeans and made a mandatory stop at Tory Burch before venturing back home….side note: coloured denim is a must for fall.
I also had the pleasure of meeting my friends sister who happened to be a designer. Melissa Luning is a graduate from Parson’s in NY. I thought that it was important to blog about her after seeing what she and her team at Crystal Jin bring to the swimsuit world. See attached photo’s and click the link below. These lines should be coming to Canada soon!
Last weekend I was cruising the streets of Victoria checking out the local boutiques. One of my fave things to do when I go back home. I came across a store that just opened two weeks ago called Public Boutique on Oak Bay Ave. I wanted to share it with the frequent peeps that check the blog.. The store was very fresh and clean and the product had a simplicity to it that I really enjoyed. Check it out next time your in Vic! www.publicboutique.ca

Thursday was a fast pace shop for Elite Image. We had four hours to build a wardrobe from scratch. The client flew in from Fort St. John to get this job taken care of. It was challenging for Elite Image because we had never met her but after pulling enough options the client ended up back on the plane with a full summer wardrobe.
Shopping with Regular clients we have worked with for years becomes more enjoyable every shop. After all the core quality pieces have been plugged into there wardrobe … we then get to focus on fun, colourful fashion pics. Which is how Saturday went down!! Check out what we wore below on Saturday’s shop.
Elite Image recommends the Maxi dress. Stylish and comfortable for warm days.
