Now enjoy the photos from our Grand Opening Party last Thursday!
We’re so excited about this new neighborhood and all the adventures, people, and good food it’s going to bring (you know, being on restaurant row and all).
When I walked into Adorn the other day, I instantly compartmentalized outfits for every occasion hanging there in front of me. Samantha, Adorn’s special projects manager, had asked me to pick out three looks that I’d wear myself, pick out for others, or give as gifts, basically, three outfits that I was a fan of. Well, I was a fan of everything (that’s not even an exaggeration), but what I picked out were three different occasional looks: one to run errands in, one that was both sexy & comfy and could also TOTALLY work as a Halloween costume if you were feeling the #witchyvibes and finally a brunch look because if you know me or follow my Instagram you know #imreallygoodatbrunch.
Because brunch should be considered a sport! Sweater: Skull Cashmere - Denim: Fidelity (in store only) So there you have it. Thanks to the lovely Adorn shop girl Marissa who agreed to model for me, and I’m not saying this from any sort of bias but not only does she have the coolest name in the game, she sure is pretty Portlander ;) xo Portland’s Pretty

Here, she is seriously rocking the Bailey 44 Wallbanger Dress (yes, that’s actually the name of it.) Read on a for a question and answer session with our petite and energetic manager.

Q: How do you style your favorite dress in your closet?
A: My Pendleton wool shirt dress from TPC fall/winter 2013 is my current favorite dress in my closet and I love pairing it with wool leggings and knee high tan boots in fall/winter and wearing it opened as a shirt/jacket in spring over boy-friend jeans a white shirt/blouse with bold gold jewelry and my leopard pony hair Yosi Samra flats (see shop adorn fb photo from spring of this outfit=))
Q: Do you prefer cocktail dresses or day dresses?
A: Most of my dresses are in-between a cocktail dress and a casual day-dress. They are perfect for Portland Summer Evening Barbeque’s or casual holiday parties.
If you got Jess as your Adorn Dress Diva, try the Desires Nova Dress. It’s shorter length and snug fit make it the perfect dress to compliment your smaller, compact frame.
