EDITORIAL: ANOTHER ROUND

unnamed (5)

Last Thursday, we gathered up a bunch of friends for an impromptu editorial for the blog at this dark little bar called Black Book in the seedy central of Portland China Town. Armed with 5 disposable cameras and one of our favorite people, Jordan Barnes, for the flash photography, we opened a bar tab and got a round of tequila shots.

Our favorite photos come from you guys when you’re out and about having fun and actually, you know, wearing your shoes.. so that was kind of our inspiration for this. We let everyone style themselves and do what they’d normally do on a night out.. we wanted it to be authentic, and most of all, FUN! Come party with us and meet the incredible babes featured in the shoot!

Age: 22
Current music obsession: Hummm.. That’s tough. I would have to say Fletcher & Wyatt Shears.

Q: How long have you lived in Portland?
A: A tad over three years now. I’m a California transplant. However I am in love with my much drearier and greener home here in Portland.

Q: It’s Friday night- where are you and what are you upto?
A: If I am not getting into trouble with my babe Christopher and my HBIC (Head Bitch In Charge) Eliza at Black Book on the west side. Then I’m probably wearing something semi slutty, taking too many tequila shots, lots of flash photos on my camera, and dancing in my chunky shoes at a show someplace on the east side with my friends.

Q: What one item you can’t live without?
A: My boyfriend gave me this pretty amazing original Black Sabbath Mob Rules Tour T-Shirt. It’s so thin it barley exists, and when he found it at the bins he said it had blood stains on it. True love! I would die if I ever lost It!

Q: Do you have a weird, hidden talent? If so, what is it?
A: I’m like, really flexible.
