shore magazine. day two-hundred-ninety-two

I am really excited to announce my first PRINTED publicity! I was featured in an article about slow fashion in Shore Magazine. Shore magazine is a lifestyle mag for people living on and around the Lake Michigan coastline. What I love most about this publication is that you can read the whole thing online very easily! I had a blast during the interview and the photo-shoot. I had instagrammed a few shots from the shoot. Here are some screen shots of the article below:

Here is the web-version of the article. 

And here are some out-takes. Thanks so much to Tony Martin for sending me these shots so I can share them with my readers!

I love that slow fashion is slowly coming into more parts of main stream culture. More and more people are caring and becoming aware of what they are buying. It makes me ecstatic because that is really all i want!! Woo Hoo. I was way excited I hope you all find it interesting as well.

keep portland weird. day two-hundred-ninety

IMG_8679
Ever since I first came to Portland a few years ago I have wanted to do a photo shoot with this sign. It's just so great and oh so true. The last time i was visiting I saw a guy walking around with a full grown cat on his shoulder (on a leash). This time I just kept wanting to stop and hand out food to all the homeless pets. They all seemed so well taken care of but I just wanted to do my part. Anyway I changed subjects pretty quick there but yes this sign. Love it right.

basically a blanket. day two-hundred-eighty-nine.

IMG_8649
This coat is basically like a blanket. I know right. It is the softest thing i have owned in quite awhile! 
I got it at buffalo exchange since i packed like a loser-o I needed a lot of warm stuff!

This evening we got all dressed up and went out for dinner at Portland City Grill. Such an amazing restaurant with a great view!!!! Also great story about this amazing BAG. Last time i was in Portland I saw this bag in a great vintage store called LuLus. When we went to go back to get it the store was closed and i was so upset! I couldn't for the life of me remember the name of the store but I searched the internet far and wide for this bag searching all sorts of combinations of 'boat' and bag. Well lucky me when we came back it was STILL here and luckily they were open! (really lucky because right now they are open ONE day a week since the owner just had her baby!). Anyway so amped I got it and how freaking great does it pull together this whole look!

floral pants. day two-hundred-eighty-eight

IMG_8613

ERMGAWD PANTS! I love pants. I know. You know this too. 
But really pants are the bomb. 

NOT! You guys know me I really don't like actual pants. Its just a weird thing. I wear them a lot but I am not a huge fan its just a skirt is not practical on an everyday basis. I would be flashing a lot of people a lot of times if I did it EVERY DAY. Lets keep the flashings to a minimum (Sounds like a great bumpersticker I should have). 

Anyway I have always liked the trend of floral pants but never came across any that really were like perfect fitting and awesome style. I tried these on thinking they would not fit and well curses they did. So they had to be mine.

lighting fail. day two-hundred-eighty-seven

IMG_8599
The basic premise of the title on this posty you are reading here is that except for this singular photograph the lighting in ALL OF THEM sucks a fat sack of !@#$. However becuase of the curve of the room and the flash some neeto aura like thingerdings came out which was kind of fun. 


So after a fun day of relaxing at the hotel we ventured out to an early dinner at Prasad in Portland. The menu is all vegan and they have a great looking juice bar (we didn't have juice which was just silly honestly but I planned to come back and do yoga, did I mention its like INSIDE a yoga studio? So cool but anyway yah the juice is supposed to be great...) I ended up eating this great bowl of food which was just to die for. Then we went out and danced all night it was great. Tim has this insane way of talking to anyone anywhere about anything. He's good like that and it makes for fun vacations.
