i had a conversation last night with a friend of a friend about portland, and it piqued my interest. she described it as having great food and wine, which you know i’m all about. being a transplant from san francisco, though, she was less than thrilled about the shopping there — except for all the vintage, which she loves.
so i’m curious to hear what others have to say about the great pdx. i’d love to visit soon (like, i said: food! wine! and the ace hotel, of course) but would love to hear what you guys have to say, too.
and, if haven’t heard all the business about ‘portlandia’ yet, you probably should. it looks kind of great. who knows if it might be available on itunes?
and now, here’s the getaway girl look for the week. it has occurred to me that maybe i might offend someone with this series? so far, i haven’t. but it’s only my interpretation of how i see the city, whether i’ve been there or not. i tried not to get too grungy with this one.
+ boots from madewell
+ skinnies from topshop
+ top from alice + olivia (and for cheap!)
+ wolf belt buckle from alkemie (but i’d like the belt, too)
+ proenza schouler bag (who’s tired of hearing about this from me?)
+ glasses by illesteva
+ ‘either / or’ from the late (and oh so great) portlander elliott smith
happy weekened, friends.
