La Beauté Française – Part 1

by Lee Oliveira on December 14, 2010

Meet Sonia. I caught her walking up the street with her friend and a whole bunch of shopping bags. I was thinking,  a lot of money had been spent here. I’ve been guilty of that too….haha. I couldn’t take my eyes of them as their body language had a certain “joie de vivrejoy of living. As they got closer I could hear them speaking french. Snap ….. the body language said it all. They were both from France and have lived in Australia for about 4 years. Both of them were so friendly and were very interested in what I did and my passion for street style photography.

Sonia wears top by Funky Jemme, shorts by Sportsgirl, bag by H&M, vintage hat and Escada fragrance

Sonia’s embroidered top looked fresh and the Fedora added a little sophistication to her look.

We actually chatted for about 15 minutes. Sonia was a great model and loved having her photo taken.

Great to meet you Sonia.

And Hayet.. you are next!! haha
