A Dress Code! (Obviously Not in Portland)

Posted by Marjorie Skinner on Wed, May 6, 2009 at 11:00 AM

Tonight I'm attending an event that has a dress code! Dress codes are about as common as unicorns in these parts, so it's no surprise that okay, technically, the event is in the mysterious, affluent 'burb of Lake Oswego, oft regarded with suspicion and nervous jokes in youthful inner-Portland circles. I'm thrilled to be adventuring my way into the unknown wilds of the Lake Oswego Country Club for the Women's Council of Realtors' annual fashion show, "Travel in Style." All the more so since I re-read the invite and realized I'll have to stop home and change out of my bleach-treated Luxury Jones pants first—no denim shall cross the threshold of the Lake Oswego Country Club, by god!

I'm also excited for the show itself, of course, which features three presenters smart enough to head to the moneyed hinterlands to find an audience that might better afford their wares. May Tee will show her impeccable, elegant pieces, for one, joined by Parallel, the Pearl District store for men and women that houses lines from Lutz & Patmos to Trovata and Corpus. Lucia Apparel will also be joining them, another local label producing smart, versatile pieces for women. If you want to go, contact Ernie Coufal for ticket availability: $55 includes dinner (I have no idea what we're having). Try to find me if you go (I'll probably be the only one taking notes), because I'm not expecting to run into very many people I know…
