Halloween is almost here!

If you know me at all, you know I'm a little beyond obsessed with Halloween. Of course I've decorated everywhere I possibly can and am SUPER excited to make my costume.

I'm also judging the costume contest at the Fez on Friday the 26th! Stay tuned for details, but it's going to be awesome.

This Thursday: Fashion Speaks: Design Week Portland

It's this Thursday. I hope to see you there.

And I promise not to say "like" and "dude" too much.

Fashion Speaks

Carolyn Hart and Lizz Basinger will be on the panel with me, hosted by Cassie Ridgeway of Mag Big.

We'll be talking about what it's like to make clothing in Portland. It's not as glamorous as it may sound. It involves a lot being covered in thread, talking to yourself, finding pins in strange places, thinking nested patterns are pretty, and giggling.

My life is rad.

Moving Studios

So exciting news! Carolyn and I have upgraded our studio space and added another pal, Rita from Hubris Apparel.

Sunday before last was painting day in the new space. We had a black wall to cover and then some floor painting to do. (previous was a white floor, YUCK).
 Our landlord is SUPER awesome and made us a pretty picture of how the layout could look.

My Dad, Jann and Rita got all the pallet racking in on Wednesday and we had to move the racking around since there was a pesky pipe in the way above the proposed wall.

Here's me and Carolyn doing our Glamor Shots poses in front of our cut table. Which now looks TINY!

The pallet racking kind of looks like our new jungle gym.

Then the boys helped move the machines and re-hang our shelves.
(sorry for the blur, I was trying to be covert as they do not like their photos taken.)

More photos to come. It's still kind of a mess, but it will be super pretty soon!
