Prior to Saturday's official Portland Fashion Week event, I got to see Church & State's fall 2008 collection at Frances May.
It totally spoiled me for everything to come.
Vintage and delicate without ever becoming too precious, their dresses, blouses, skirts, coats and, yes, rompers, are what every fashion-forward Portland girl wants in her wardrobe.
Well except for the rompers. I mean, I love them, but I (sadly) haven't seen any girls frolicing around town in them. Paired with tights and boots they'd be so cute! Think about it.
Regardless, cheers to Rachel Turk and Nathaniel Crissman for crafting a beautiful collection...and totally outshining anything going on across town.
