I typically dress to my mood. I'm all about comfort and the feeling of fabric. When choosing accessories, a pop of color always brightens up my outfit.

Busy busy fall...

My, what a busy fall! I've been kept very busy with commercial photography lately shooting for all kinds of fun clients, New Balance, Popeye Magazine from Japan, Club Monaco... above is some work I did with Chelsea of Frolic, see those posts here and here.

I'll be back out scouting for Urban Weeds next week, new posts soon!

Meanwhile, I'm LOVING watching the street style pour into Cotton's America's Style Gallery. Here's my top two submissions from the Northwest so far:

 Katrina K from Seattle
 I adore everything about this look; the crisp white shirt, the menswear tie, the smart glasses, the color palette, the feminine shoes and adorable topknot hair. I'm absolutely loving ties on girls right now, such a fun look. 

 Tonya S. from Portland
An excellent example of laid back Portland style. The oxfords, the hat, the button up top, and the color palette are all spot on for this region.

Submit your own look here.
Cotton is giving away $1440 per week to a random entry. Enter! 

If you're anywhere near Portland, mark your calendars for December 2nd. Cotton will send it's Style Search Squads to Bridgeport Village at 11AM. I'll be there too, come down in your best looks.


Cotton + Street Style

Good news!!!

I've been waiting a while to share this. Trust me, this is going to be fun.

I'm very excited to be working with Cotton Incorporated (yes that Cotton, The Fabric of Our Lives, Cotton) as their Fashion Influencer for the Northwest.

Here's the scoop:
They've divided the nation into 6 different regions. My region is the Northwest. We'll be looking for the best street style in the region. Not only will we be hitting the streets here in Portland, but also in Seattle, Boise and Missoula to showcase the best cotton looks. Don't live in these cities? You can also submit your photo online. Guys, you too. (Do it!)

The best cotton looks will appear on People.com/cotton24hours, I'll be helping to narrow it down to the top 8 to the looks I feel represent the Northwest the best. The public will vote and the best look from the Northwest will:

1. Be Awesome (of course, but then you will also...)
2. Win a trip to South Beach  (where you will...)
3. Get VIP treatment and backstage access at Cottons 24 hour runway show (where your bank account will grow by...)
4. $2,500 cash prize (and also you'll get to)
5. Hang out with me (very cool)

The Northwest winner will attend Cotton's 24 Hour Runway Shot with the other top 5 regional winners check out the top cotton looks from across the nation. I love Northwest style, I'm pretty sure we have this in the bag. C'mon Northwest, represent!
