Street Style: Portland Fashion Week

Posted by Caroline Smith on Fri, Oct 10, 2014 at 8:59 AM

"Most of my outfit is from Nordstrom. The sweater underneath is from Ireland. Hats are my signature accessory. I'm inspired by travel. Sometimes something is so obnoxious you just have to have it!" -Stephanie

"I like a mix of vintage and current trends. The purse is from Kim White handbags. She makes purses from the interiors of classic cars. The ring is by Marcia Moran; it's from Gilt. The necklace is House of Harlow. My hat and my jacket are actually both from Zara." -Karalee

Devon showed his collection, Devonation, at Portland Fashion Week.

"Because I showed a collection with a lot of color, I purposefully chose a neutral palette for a strong contrast. Lately, I've been into dark graphics. The pants are from my line, Devonation. I got the shirt in New York."
-Devon

"My style is retro glam, with an edge. I wear mostly vintage." -Siena

"I'm an architect. My jacket screams paint and art; I'm inspired by that." -Lera

Sweet Jayne Fashion Mixer

Posted by Caroline Smith on Tue, Sep 16, 2014 at 9:59 AM

This past Friday, style bloggers from around Portland competed to dress their model in the best fall look from clothes at Sweet Jayne Boutique (1914 NE Broadway; Instagram:sweetjaynebroadway). The event was hosted by Portland Fashion Week and was chock full of models, bloggers, and fashionable Portlanders.

"I listened to a lot of "70's hard rock and metal bands; that inspired the fringe. The jacket, shirt, and shoes are from Goodwill. The shirt is from eBay. It says "Bikes and Whiskey: Both get better with age". The jewelry I found at antique stores in Seattle." -Anastasia

"My style is hip-hop mixed with 90's era grunge. My friend gave me the jacket. It's by a Portland label from the '90's called Vanguard. The snake bracelet is from an import shop in Miami. I just got back from New York fashion week. I bought this necklace in Brooklyn." -Mackenzie

"I don't want to look like everyone else. I decided to bring this romper into fall because I found it at the end of summer. The necklace is from Curvy Closet, bracelet from Buffalo Exchange, and the ring is from Gold Door. I bought the purse from a vendor at New York fashion week. You can fold it and make it into a smaller purse!" -Leslee

"I have a lot of friends who are into Steampunk. I shop vintage a lot. My dress is '80's vintage. My belt is from Wells and Verne, which is a Steampunk shop. It's fun to fuse different styles together. Society tell us that women can only be sexy until their mid-twenties. Ladies should never give up. You can be glamorous until you kick it." -Hide Beezeely (pronounced like Heidi)
