Photo Journal Extras - Portland Fashion Week®

Saturday, September 21, 2013

Man, I MISS my best gal Mandy taking pics - she's so freaking good! I think every girl needs a personal photog who sees all their beautiful angles/sides and even when you think you're not looking too hot - she can give you images proving you wrong. So grateful for a friend who took family time off to help at Portland Fashion Week. I asked her to document the team, outfits, etc - and man I love her work. Plus, if you love a beautiful instagram - check her's out

So here are some great shots of my purple top/white pants ensemble from Torrid! Same pants I wore with the Leopard blazer - was a quick mid-day outfit change :).

Outfits current and courtesy of!
