    she wears those sandals so well, love her sunglasses too.

  2. All the folks I've seen on this blog have wonderful style, but it also helps that most of them are REALLY PRETTY. It would be nice to see, in addition to the bombshell men and women, some normal looking people rocking superior street fashion. The gentlemen wearing lederhosen is a step in the right direction...

  3. Thanks, b.rhiger. That is fantastic feedback and definitely on our radar.

  4. I think you are dong a great job in bringing out the beauty in normal people. I don't think they are too model-ish at all. They all have real natural looks, I think it's very "Portland."

    I would have to agree with sushipie that the people on the site do not look like models and it is a testament to your skills as a photographer to bring out the beauty in the photos.

    And regarding this post...I hate the sandals. I saw them several weeks ago and really hope the style only lasts about five minutes!

  6. Those sandals are great!! They give the outfit more flare and they are comfortable too!! Good stuff!!

  7. Beautiful. Everyone is so beautiful!

    And cute shoes :)

  8. I never said that they looked like models, nor do I find the strange figures peopling most fashion magazines attractive.

    I think Lisa Warninger has taken some great photographs and has chosen folks who look fantastic in what they're wearing. But I also think many of the subjects would look good if they had any old thing on. For example, the women one NE 28th Ave (Julia, the florist), she's wearing a very simple, almost Depression-era dress, nothing fancy or bold, yet she looks strikingly beautiful in it. I just think it'd be difficult to make her, or most of the people on this blog, look plain. Check out Sarah, the wine shop salesman, or Harvest, the information tourist guide; shoot, if I had a smile like that I'd be smiling too!

    That's why I particularly enjoy the lederhosened fellow. By most people's standards he's a pretty average looking dude. But when he throws on those traditional Alpine trousers, all of a sudden its like, "that guys awesome!" And its all in the personal style...

    Hello Urban Weeds!

    Just wanted to pipe in.

    Chelsea Fuss and I select our subjects based on personal style. Chelsea's job is the stylist and editor, and my job is to make whomever we come across look as gorgeous as they are.

    We are actively looking for people of all ages, of all genders, of all races, of all abilities, and all walks of life... when we find someone who has an interesting style we shoot it.

    I am a portrait photographer, and I adore taking portraits of people. I think all faces and bodies are gorgeous and are beautiful in their own right. We have never, and will never discrimiate based on societies views of what beauty is.

    We will keep looking for awesome personal style!

    I wish I could do my hair that way. It reminds me of this photo of Michelle Williams that looks effortless but I can never get my hair to fall in that loose piecey way so nicely. Tutorial?! :)
