end of summer florals

One of my favorite trends this summer was florals + prints.

I've always loved prints and patterns regardless of the season, but florals are completely new to me. I'm not exactly sure when or how it happened but I've been loving them and rockin' them all season long!

With summer quickly coming to an end, I've been fully indulging in the floral trend before it fully goes into hibernation for the winter. Here are a few end- of summer floral pieces I'm loving!  

I love the colors in this top! That electric blue is gorgeous! 

This skirt is a great transitional piece. It would look great with a crop top in the summer or a sweater in the winter. Loving the exposed zipper as well. 

Don't these earrings sort of look like mini dragon flies dontcha think. Cute!

The pattern and colors in this dress are amazing + it's on sale! S C O R E!

pdx fashion event: fade to light

I live for a great fashion show and on Wednesday, Fade to Light gave me just that! Fade to Light is a biannual fashion show + multimedia presentation produced by Elizabeth Mollo Productions. "[It's] not just a fashion show, but an experience that leaves the viewer with a solid understanding of each designer and the collections being shown."(

Each presentation began with a short film that communicated the message of the brand. There was a dog, a dance performance and some really cute male models.  I was totally blown away by how cohesive the collections were and the designs coming down the runway. It was great!

My favorite designers of the night were Mag-Big's House Collection, Urchin Redesign (who will show an exclusive and specially designed collection at Portland Fashion Week) and of course Bryce Black! 

 It's just my luck that the battery on my camera battery died right as Bryce Black was about to show but let me tell you, It was amazing! I'll definitely have to come to the February installation of Fade to Light!
