Girl of the Week: Shaughnessy Chow and Jennifer Francisty

Erica and I ran into this week’s Girls of the Week, Shaughnessy Chow and Jennifer Francisty last weekend at Fortune Sound Club. Shaughnessy is the co-owner of the lovely boutique JENNYFLEUR in Yaletown. Jennifer is a classical ballet dancer at Coastal City Ballet and a fashion enthusiast. Together, they have recently started their own blog ellegstatus.com as an outlet to showcase their personal style, or what they like to refer to as “their faux pas”. Meet Shaughnessy and Jennifer.
