It’s been two weeks since I’ve had a chance to do a Week in Pictures update but a lot has happened in that time and I promise it’s worth the wait! The weather in Portland has been remarkably good. And, I’ve taken an absurd amount of photo booth pictures.
These signs are posted over some building windows a few blocks from The Ace. Totes obsessed with that type.
Since a lot has happened in the last two weeks, some of these occurrences aren’t quite linear. I have to backtrack a bit and show off the most amazing valentine EVER that I received from Miss Mary Bee. Even better, she texts me when she’s listening to Tupac (we bonded over him while she fake tattooed my arm during our road trip). I love her.
I quickly snapped these during my last day at Nike two weeks ago. I worked with the Global Communications Team which was super awesome and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Thanks, Nike!
My favorite color scheme always. Thanks to photographer Kristin Cofer for sending me a cute mix CD and letter. And, she just forwarded me this photo of the business cards I designed for her! The Avant Garde necklace is by Plastique.
Over the weekend, Joey and I did a bit of shopping (well, I did). I am a bit obsessed with this white leather skirt that I found for $14.00 at an antique mall in Seattle. When the weather warms up, I want to do a more nurse-inspired look with it. Anyway, we were dead tired and the reason why is perhaps the best ever:
On my way downtown…too many times to count lately.
These are some out-takes of snapshots I took for a cute little online magazine project. The Proenzas usually reside in the corner of my office on a stack of NEST mags with bright yellow spines.
Since I’ve been working so much, it’s been harder to meet up with friends. I finally caught up with Tyler over the weekend (who just got back from a month in Germany…jealous) and walked to the 7-Eleven with him and some buddies. When in Rome, do as the Romans do?
On Monday, I played more catch up with my friend Jason. We met at the Doug Fir for breakfast (which was mighty tasty, I might add). The atmosphere during the morning hours is markedly different than the late nights sitting by the outside fire with a pile of mashed potatoes and a stiff drink listening to the drunken patrons’ hilarious conversations.
Jason and I also ended up at the Ace photo booth trying to re-enact the infamous Murder at the Mountain. Actually, we’re constantly trying to relive the week-long bender of Christmas 2009 but have yet to succeed.
This is the Ace Hotel lobby. Tres chic.
After The Ace, we stopped by Clyde Common for mimosas. I adore the impeccably designed menus and minimal atmosphere.
On a closing note, if you leave my brother and I alone for too long, this is the type of stuff that transpires. But, if you leave my brother and dad alone for too long…you end up with an eight-foot tall bear in the corner of your living room. I am truly speechless. Maybe I’ll show you sometime.
P.S For all of next week, I am going to be working with Nike again and I have a ton of freelance projects due. So if posting is late or slows down, that is why. I am thankful for all of the work but also very, very busy.
