I’ve worn this dress dozens of times but on this particular afternoon I put it on for a little local photo shoot. Here’s how I styled it:

Dress from Anthropologie, Tarina Tarantino heart necklace, cardigan from Rodarte for Target, grey knee highs and Vivienne Westwood for Melissa plastic dreams pink shoes.

At Portobello Vegan Trattoria in Portland there is a beautiful mural by local artist, Jill Bliss. I’ve been fortunate enough to meet her a few times and even go to her house for a clothing trunk show last year. In December husband and I celebrated 20 years of knowing each other with dinner at Portobello and also in December I bought a handmade paper necklace from Jill at Crafty Wonderland. I feel pretty lucky to know her, to support her and live in such a cool city. XOXO

Here I am wearing my new paper foliage with a Rodarte for Target faux shearling shrug and a Free People sparkling dress:

Here are two pictures from Portobello the night of our anniversary dinner with a teensy peak of Jill’s work:

If you haven’t been to Portobello you are missing out. Beautiful inside, lovely service and wonderful food. XOXO

So I’m struggling with wearing a very small faux fur collection that I have in my closet. It’s getting quite cold here and that is the main reason I bought that big muppet monster coat (photo below) at H&M almost two years ago in a New York City winter! For me it’s about perception. What I wear reflects who I am and since I’m a fake meat eater that in this case seems to translate to also being a fake leather wearer and a fake fur wearer. But, seriously! I don’t want anyone to ever think I’m strolling around with dead animal skins draped on my body. Vegans, are you wearing faux fur this winter?

My mother in law is so very generous and has bought me some beautiful things from Hidden Treasures in Topanga Canyon, California. She brought me the dress below when she visited on Easter weekend. I costumed it up quite a bit on the first wear but I think I'll do something cleaner and more simple next time I wear it. It was really cold outside!

I love these layers and colors. This was a sunny but cold day in Portland a few weeks ago.
