recently i had the opportunity to take part in a photo shoot wearing some really cool clothes from local boutiques. i got to wear some great pieces from bliss, black parrot, akari, and proper vintage. during the shoot, i asked myself 'why don't i dress like this everyday?' and then i remembered it was because these weren't actually my clothes. what i would do to be able afford all of these awesome pieces..
not only did i love the outfits i got to wear, but i felt beautiful too. and i couldn't have felt that way without the hair and makeup from my go-to hair girl, genevieve drzewianowski at akari.
and as for the photos themselves, they were taken by the super talented matt cosby.
check out his website, stop into these stores, and support the talented locals in portland!
thank you so so much to everyone who helped me out with this!
