Wool goes global

By in Uncategorized

The International Woolmark Prize contestants’ work is blowing our minds here at the store.  Being from Oregon, you know we love some wool 9 months out of the year!  These young designers hit it on the nail with their designs. We’ll admit it though, we’re mostly surprised that Victoria Beckham SPEAKS!

SHOEBABES

By in PORTLAND

1.  If you could describe your style in 3 words what would they be and why?

Eccentric, Unexpected, and Girly-Grunge.   I like to think I’m toeing the line between looking crazy and being ahead of the fashion game.

2.  What is your fave style that you are obsessing over this season?

Lipstick, I’m loving the bright and bold colors this spring.  It’s the perfect addition to any outfit.

3.  Which pair of Solestruck shoes are on your feet the most?

Depends on the outfit of course, but as of late the Acne Pistols.

4.  As you probably already know, the pantone color of the year is  emerald, what is your pick for the most MAJ color trend going into Spring/Summer?

The union of black and white.  Color blocked, striped, window pane, you name it!

5.  What is the craziest justification you’ve made for purchasing a pair of shoes?

My wedding dress was “under budget” sooooo…the Charlotte Olympia “Meredith” seemed like a must (6 inch heel, 2 inch platform, black white striped wedge with a bow? YES PLEASE!)

Simonetta Ravizza’s spring/summer runway blew my mind.

Over-sized denim jackets

Rent is over-rated!
