On the streets of Sydney…Crown St

by Lee Oliveira on February 7, 2011

If you think it’s easy to stop people and take a picture of them, OH you just try it!… Sometimes I get “No thanks! or Sorry, I haven’t got change!“. When I stopped Jane and explained to her what I do, she was about to give me a big fat NO Thanks. She then looked around and realised that she was the most fashionable on this busy street.

dress-Karen Walker; bag-Prada; shoes-Nine West; sunglasses-AM Wear; fragrance-Michael Kors

The warm colours of Jane‘s dress were refreshing and relaxed. The T bar sandals were a great complement to her outfit.

Later I was thinking to myself,  why did she almost say no to me?! Maybe she has been photographed before. Perhaps she was in a fashion catalog  or on a catwalk and I didn’t recognize her. Well, she was hiding behind those gorgeous sunglasses.

Thanks Jane,

It was fun, wasn’t it? 😀

Ha ha I often wonder about the range of responses fearless street style bloggers might receive – people can be incredibly shy. I love her dress, but then again, I do love Karen Walker’s designs.

Emilie February 7, 2011

laughing out loud on the i haven’t got change…but you do have to admit, the probability of being approached by somebody wanting to take picture compared to someone wanting money in this country is like .0001% to 100%.

love the karen walker!

I am glad she said yes! LOVE the dress and her in it. The colors are so subdued and great for that mad print. The handbag’s leather goes so well with it.

I just read your comment about your beautiful 40 something partner. LOVE! As in I had no doubt that handsome you had good taste. Now I wanna see! xo. -Bella Q

No doubt it is hard! It takes guts (or gumption) to walk up to a perfect stranger and say “hey – may I take your photo?” I’ve only done a couple street style photos and I had to screw up the courage both times. She is a great subject though. I love the graphic print dress and the sandals. She has great legs too – looks tall!!

Aaaww if you stop me in the street and ask me to photograph me, definitely a big YES!! LOL
Dont be discourage!! I’m sure there are a lot out there that actually appreciate what you did. Back to the fashion thingy..really love the subtle prints on her dress and I have to agree the T strap sandal makes the outfit more sophisticated

Laughing away at the ‘no change’ bit!!! It’s funny what people say when they don’t often hear what you have to say first.

But seriously, how could anyone say No to you darl?

WOow Frankly What a stunning (and so Welcome) “summery Fashionista” !!! I really like the way her pastel dress’ fruity vibrancy (subtly) honor her (wrongly) discreet Beauty, AND especially this “Fetish harmony” with her polished toes . . .
