Rise and Shine

by Lee Oliveira on December 10, 2010

As I get to explore street fashion photography more and more, I’m wanting to experiment a bit with my photos. I decided to use a few different techniques with these particular shots and these are the results.

I am not generally a huge fan of black & white, but the pattern and Phoebe‘s Sass & Bide dress caught my eye.

Phoebe wears dress by Sass&Bide, boots by country Road, bag by Marc Jacobs, watch by TW Steel and Eau Mega fragrance by Viktor & Rolf

I am a bit partial to a Sass & Bide and I think she looked great in this beautifully printed jersey dress. She made a joke saying “Kim Kardashian has the same dress”. I laughed and said “two of my friends have it as well”.

Phoebe was just about to look for her new Christmas Party dress… of course, I couldn’t shut up and gave her a list of stores she should visit.

I am curious now to know which designer she worn that night.

Thanks Phoebe. It was a pleasure to met you.

I have now left Hong Kong on my little trip and have my feet firmly planted in Singapore. Will be here now for a few days before heading home back to Sydney.

have a great time at Singapore and you will surely see a lot of great fashionable people there too…

I love the pattern of her dress I guess maybe her body fits the dress perfectly…


MY STYLE ADVICE December 11, 2010

I like the photo and the dress; great for a curvy woman with all those geometrical shapes. Looks like there is some blue and gray in the dress too? Maybe its my screen.
Why do you not photo black and white?

That’s definitely a unique pattern on her dress, but it is a pretty one. I’m a huge fan of black and white, especially on dresses.

I’m usually not Sass and Bide’s biggest fan, but she looks gorgeous! Love that such a tight fitting dress has sleeves, it cuts a beautiful silhouette. Have fun in Asia! xx

These pictures came out surprisingly well, considering you were only experimenting with the camera.
I am in love with her bag and those boots are exquisite. The print of her dress caught my eye, there is a lot going on there. Stripes, chains. different shades of black and grey. It’s very interesting.

Haute World December 13, 2010

Really like the geometric print of this dress. Also love the fact that she kept her styling natural and opted for more rustic accessories to provide a bit of contrast.

Its such a clever dress I’m not surprised lots of ppl have it! Its amazing how a digital print on a simple stretch cotton can flatter the body like that. Oh Hong Kong!! Lucky! I really want to do there, I’ve done Tokyo & Shanghai but everyone says the shoppin in Hong Kong is incredible. If I go you’ll be the first person I’ll be asking for tips! Ooh yes the LV bag, its my friends aww :(
