Taxi Please!

by Lee Oliveira on October 1, 2010

How could a taxi driver not stop for this beautiful girl? When I saw her in the distance trying to hail a taxi, I couldn’t help myself and ran like a mad thing to get to her before she disappears.

As soon I got close to her I was like … hello, excuse me, excuse me! She probably thought I was a freak. I’m use to those kind of reactions now….haha. Anyway, after introducing myself, I couldn’t stop saying how pretty she was and told her I so needed to get a photo of her. I think secretly she was loving the attention. Don’t we all.

She was obliging and happy to be photographed and I was even happier to have the photos. As I was taking some shots of her I got chatting. Her name is Jasmine Anderson and she is a vocalist and songwriter.

She also told me she was going to live in Sweden next year to pursue her singing career as she had a wonderful job opportunity she couldn’t pass up.

As you all can see, spring has definitely arrived in Sydney and I am starting to see some great looks out and about. I really liked how Jasmine put together this look.  The soft pink see through top paired well with the texture of the short fabric. The clogs are a great look too.

Of course, I had to let her go and as she was trying to get a taxi I got this last great shot of her. She got a taxi in less than a minute (I mean… Hello!!)

Jasmine wears top, shorts both by Bettina Liano, bag and sunglasses both by Oroton and fragrance, Jasmin Noir by Bvlgari

Hopefully I will see you one day singing on TV or at some huge concert.  Don’t forget about me when you get famous.

You were delightful Jasmine. Thank you.

Yea, I can see she has no problem hailing a cab 😉 She definitely has that “star quality”! Hopefully, her music career will take off!

this girl can certainly stop traffic! she’s gorgeous and has a sense of style to match. you’re right, the femininity of the blush pink blouse is perfect with those lace(?) textured shorts. love the contrast between the softness of the top with the edgy look of the rest of the ensemble.
