Clair VIntage Inspired in the October issue of Portland Monthly Magazine

I'm still in a bit of disbelief that I made 2 print magazines in 1 month! Yay! Nerd Party!

The second one is the October edition of Portland Monthly Magazine.

Clair Fall/Winter 2011 - Model : Nancy Fedelem

I met Nancy I'm not sure exactly when, but it was during when my poor pup Rufus was having some rough food allergy times a few years back. Her shop is in the neighborhood I'm always in, so I started and completed my food quest there. Which, for the record is Salty's Dog & Cat Shop. We were able to find something that he could eat and not not make him itch like crazy. Plus they would special order me the largest size bag too. It's something I really value in local shops, they want to help you and care about you as a customer. I care about them too, which I why I go out of my way to shop local for everything as much as I possibly can. Also, Nancy is extra rad, she let me borrow her birdies for my Spring/Summer '10 shoot. As well as donating some loot to the Newberg Animal Shelter Friends fundraiser.

Clair Fall/Winter 2011 - model : Nicole Prevost

Nicole is the owner of Union Rose, a shop in Portland, Oregon that I am proud to sell my clothing in. Everything in the shop is actually made in Portland, Oregon. With 95% of apparel sold in the United States being made overseas, that's pretty amazing.  Lucky for both of us the people of Portland are great with supporting local.  Nicole also sells her line, Big Brown Eyes at the shop. You may catch her on any given day making garments in the back room.If you don't live in Portland - don't fret - you can order online as well.
If you'd like to come see both of us - Union Rose is hosting my Fall/Winter trunk show on Friday October 7th from 6:00-9:00pm. We'll have candy, pretty dresses, a fortune teller, wine and some more candy.

For the Love of Boobs - Fashion Show October 14th

I'm really happy to be participating in this show this year. If you know me, you know my life has been affected by cancer quite a bit. (For the official record - a BIG F-YOU to all cancer out there). So please come down and see some lovely fashion for a great cause.

Clair Fall/Winter 2011 - Model : Kira Pinksi

I love Kira. I met her in 2007 doing my first Clair Vintage Inspired fashion show at the Oregon Live 10 year anniversary party. She mistook me for one of the models (imagine my shock) and wanted to make my hair pretty. So I let her. I've been seeing her for gettin' my hair did ever since. She did my wedding hair last fall, and shore my 10" of hair for Locks of Love this spring.

One of things I enjoy about her so much is her energy. She LOVES doing hair as much as I LOVE making dresses. So she's super fun to go see, and meticulous about making your hair pretty. (plus we giggle a lot so it's super fun.)

She's at Salon Capelli, and you can her work here.

First time in Print!!!

So I'm still having a mega nerd moment almost a week later after seeing my clothing for the first time in print.
Oooh ooh look! There I am. And Tif too! (thanks Sarah Giffrow for the headshot that does not make me look like Sharpe.)

And TA-DA!!!!! Pretty!!! I think the best part is this magazine is printed on 11x17 - That's W magazine sized.

You can see the entire magazine online here:
