ON THE ROAD: Solestruck vs. Portland

Before we flew out to Vegas, we longingly said goodbye to our moody city of Portland. We put on some My Bloody Valentine and got to work on the first portion of our ON THE ROAD Lookbook, taking the “dream of the 90s” vibe of the city and amping it up to the next level. Think grungy, shoe-gaze style with chunky platforms and cold weather layering that Portlanders have mastered so well (thanks to all this frickin’ rain we get every year!).

Get yourself in the mood with a playlist dedicated to our hometown:
