Plaid is the new black

“By Kos-Mos. Frilly shirt found at a random festival, Body line jacket, Riachuelo shorts and hairbow, hand made necklace, Montreal rocing horse shoes, Body line and Lupo socks and tights, Body line bag, pin given to me by Meh, random belt with a heart buckle that was given to me by Lily, VW replica/le cafe/hand made rings. Featuring Gloomy” Plaid I never really thought I would say it but, plaid is finally cool, at least for a little while. I never got into the grunge era, looking like a slob was never appealing although holey jeans never got old, as…

Men and Kilts: why the hell not?

2008-05-08 brown and orange, originally uploaded by Kasmeneo. Skirts, kilts, whatever you want to call them. Theres nothing wrong with men wearing them. They’re comfortable, stylish and you can even ride a bike in them (as you can see) . This member has been contributing for quite some time and I think he needs some attention.

Portland’s First Warm Week!

Portland had its first semi-consistent week of sun and (near) warmth! A visit from out of town and tolerable weather got me on the street again! and where else to take an out of town friend than Hawthorne Street (first of many neighborhoods to see). Hawthorne can can get a bit overcrowded on weekends, but luckily we roamed around on a Wednesday.

Also, with the excellent weather, and hopefully…

San Fran Weekend

This last weekend was great! I went to San Francisco for four days for a surprise birthday party. It was my first time and even though it rained and flooded the first day, with a prognosis of more rain all weekend, it cleared up the last 3 days just for us! We went to Haight street and shopped for a while. There were masses of vintage and recycled clothing stores as well as great new stuff like a Kid Robot store and RVCA outlet! Overall the prices were to be expected from one of the most spendy cities in the…

Stumptown Style

So, My first Street Fashion photo from Portland Oregon! Of course, I forgot to ask his name.. where he got his clothes.. everything I know better than to forget, but I got nervous. Anyways, YAY! The faux fur vest caught my eye first of course but it became clear there were no accidents in what he was wearing. I struggled a bit to subdue my flash (I’m getting used to digital again after losing my last one). Im so glad I got this camera for xmas, This’ll be so much easier when I’m just wandering around campus having to worry…
