I've been crazy busy this week getting everything all lined up for Cotton's 24 Hour Runway Show. I'm putting together 5 looks. I've asked two of my favorite Portland designers to create looks for the show. Today I checked in with designer Adam Arnold at his studio, and I'm in love with the sketches. Can't wait to see them all finished!

The show is just 2 weeks away! Did you see who will be joining me, representing the best Northwest style? Our regional style setter for the Northwest is Jamie! She'll be joining me in South Beach for the show. I'm so excited to have her there.

I'm getting really excited about heading to South Beach for Cotton's 24 Hour Runway Show. I'm in Hawaii this week, it feels so strange to wear sandals and light dresses after a winter of boots and sweaters. I'm excited to shop for some fresh summer looks and cotton is the perfect fabric for it, so comfortable and soft. Hopefully I'll find something to wear to the show.
