Spring is finally here!! When the sun comes out in Portland, the city comes alive! My photographer and I decided to take a short trip out of the city to McMenamins Edgefield.

I finally felt warm enough to wear a dress without tights or stockings to showcase  a knit dress from THREE FLOOR.  Apart from classic B & W, I also love the details of this dress: the an open-weave neckline, asymmetrical details, fringe and uneven hem.  Since the dress has a lot of volume, apple or pear shaped bodies may want to think twice.  Continue reading

When I see someone wearing gorgeous lace clothing, I think “WOW, she is so elegant!”   However, the subtle doubt creeps in: “I never look nice in lace”.  Lace has always a dream for me and today can be for you!

NEVER SAY NEVER!  Today I feature Sandro Paris’s Lace set: a cropped lace top and matching lace pencil skirt with a slit on the side.  I fell in love with it at first sight and trying it on further confirmed it was a perfect style and cut for me!
