Skylab

While roaming around Portland, there are a few places that I’ve been inside of that immediately took my breath away. I never really connected the dots until recently but they all seemed to have a few things in common: a very sleek, modern core containing a lot of glass merged with slightly rustic wood grain details.

When I first stepped inside North a few months ago, it was easily one of the coolest spaces I’d ever been in so I asked who’d designed the interior. Turns out that the honor goes to Portland’s Skylab Architecture. Here are some of my favorite projects of theirs:

On Sunday, Joey, Rocky and I headed out of town for an overnight stay in Hood River. We didn’t do a whole lot or take many photos — instead, we just enjoyed escaping the city for a day. I loved some of the old signs around town. Rocky came along with us everywhere, even though he had to be carried like a baby and smuggled into a few places!

Served with Love

When we got home, Joey made us homemade popcorn on the stove. Served up in a heart-shaped bowl, of course.

Nice Menu

I totally admit to being drawn into ordering food based on the design of the menus. This one is from the Slingshot Lounge.

Key to the Content

Remember how I mentioned my new LaCie IamaKey USB drive a few weeks back? I decided to start wearing it as a necklace — that way, when I am making the rounds between multiple agencies and computers, I am always prepared. Though, maybe I look more like a latch key kid. ;)

The Shoes that Started it All

They keep me company in my office every day. My favorite thing that Michael Kors has ever designed! Now I wish that I had gotten all the weird colors they came in at the time.

Fiction


week in pictures

I’ve been a little incognito from the internet for the last week because I’ve been working with the Fiction team. Such a nice bunch of folks!


I’m gonna finish up this week, take some photos in the new pile of stuff that just showed up from Urban Outfitters, go out for a nice dinner and wrap up a couple of freelance projects. What about you? Got any big plans?

On Sunday night, Joey, Rocky & I took a mini vacation in Hood River and stayed at the quaint, turn of the century Hood River Hotel. I wanted to be comfortable while traveling but still have a pulled together look so I paired some of my favorite neutrals with a pair of super sturdy Dries van Noten wedges.

I Wore:

Quail Florette Bomber
Tribute ‘The Sidewalk Never Ends’ shirt
Woven shorts, Forever 21
Time Teller P watch, Nixon
Wedges, Dries van Noten

I love the Quail Florette Bomber so much — it’s lightweight and easy to throw on over a simple shirt while adding some visual interest. And, I’ve worn these Dries Fall 2007 wedges for two years now and they are still probably the favorite pair of shoes I own.

Today, I picked up my gray nubuck Camilla Skovgaard wedges from Halo that I ordered many, many months ago. I’ve worn the black ones to death and this is basically my ‘summer’ version. If you want a pair, call Halo at 503.331.0366 to order – they’re over $50.00 cheaper than shopbop is listing!

I Wore:

Gray zip dress, Forever 21
Gray rayon scarf, Forever 21
Neon yellow slip, Forever 21
Gray suede wedge boots, Camilla Skovgaard
P-Series watch, Nixon
