Ahhhh.. March in Vancouver! The cherry blossoms are in full bloom, the rain has been holding off, and Vancouverites are eagerly swapping their winter duds for fresh spring picks. I'm always the most inspired in Spring time. The blooming blossoms adorning the city scape always spurs a sense of hope and motivation that is unparalleled, and this year has been no different! Elizabeth and I knew we had to capture this flowery moment before it was too late. And what better way than with a Style Snap?

Top 10 Vancouver Fashion Bloggers to Follow!
Let’s face it, life gets busy, and we don’t always have the time to keep up with the fast-pace-forever-changing fashion trends and learn the best styling tips. Sometimes it takes a little guidance from people that do it full time. So here are our top picks for Vancouver fashion bloggers to follow.
We are living in the magic age of fashion right now. We are no longer limited by geography, technology, war or society. We wear what we want, what we feel comfortable in. Today's fashion is about creating a first impression, a representation of ourselves.
A couple of weeks ago we had the absolute pleasure to work with Elizabeth Manuntag of The Style Saver. The concept of the day was fairly simple and only slightly daunting: do a casual styling and shopping shoot topped off with a professional product shoot in the photo studio.
I was a little nervous to meet up with and then photograph a complete stranger, but I soon learned that my anxiety was completely unnecessary. Elizabeth showed up right on time with a smile and some serious style. We instantly gelled and got right to it.
It wasn't long before I felt like we were lifelong friends. We had such a fun time wandering around the store playing dress up, matching up pieces and accessories and harnessing our inner Anna Wintour.
As the author and creator of the blog TheStyleSaver, Elizabeth is so stylish and savvy, she really brings home the idea that you don't need to be a billionaire to look great. Anybody can buy the latest fashions, it takes style to pull it all together and look great.
After searching and trying on and searching and trying on, we finally curated the perfect collection for shooting in the studio.
The vibe of the shoot was a little 1970s disco meets festival fashion with a dash of the sweet girl next door.

To top off the experience, I asked her a couple interview questions to get to know her a little bit better:
Thanks so much Elizabeth, it was a blast to work with you!
