Portland Threads: Maxi Dresses and Boho Beauties

Saturday, August 30, 2014

 

It’s summer; the weather is blazing, the tourists are out, and everyone either has a tan, a nasty sunburn, or has been hiding under a very shady rock.

As the summer draws to a close, everyone's eking the last from our regular rays, and adorning themselves in lightweight maxi dresses, rugged skirts, and knee-length dainty floral dresses. It’s not a surprise that women are channeling the bohemian approach to style - still, personalized accessories help bring an individual touch and dress up the dressed-down style.

Once upon a time the EARTH was created.
But it felt cold and dark, so a SUN was attached to it.
But when the sun was resting, it got dark again…
So, yes, STARS came forth to light the way.
But the earth would get really dry and breathless, so WATER and AIR became part of it....

“I’m from Australia and have only been here (in Portland) for four days. I’ve been staying in my friends warehouse. It’s a really cool house because they film wresting there, so I got my dose of American culture.”
