9 Year Anniversary Party on Fremont!

Wow! 9 years since we opened our very first location on Fremont… These last 9 years have been such a rollercoaster of ups and downs and our Anniversary party reminded us of how lucky we are to have constantly had the support of so many wonderful friends! This was such a fun night of celebrating all the hard work that has gone into this store and you guys make it all possible!

If you missed our Anniversary party, here are some of the highlights:

The photo booth was a huge hit and it was filled with so much love that night!

Shout out to New Deal Distillery for providing Ethan with everything he needed to serve up some delicious cocktails! They were a hit!

And so were all the delicious appetizers! They were basically just as pretty as the jewelry they sat next to…

Oh, and did we mention there was a raffle? We didn’t raffle off one, but FOUR beautiful pieces at the party!

Congrats to all the lucky winners on scoring these pieces from LACAUSA and Just Female!

Although everyone was looking quite fabulous (see below), Ambrosia, from Auric Salon, was there to finish the job and make sure we all had the perfect braids for the upcoming weekend! Everyone walked away loving their new locks!

Seriously, we are obsessed! Aren’t these gorgeous???

And, don’t worry, we didn’t forget about the shopping! The first 15 customers to spend $150 walked away with some awesome goodie bags that night!

All of our stylists had so much fun making sure everyone went home with the perfect pieces to add to their wardrobe!

Speaking of stylists, here is to the wonderful friends who have been with us since the beginning and the ones who help our team continue to grow!

This journey would not be possible without all of the amazing people that have helped Adorn be what it is today! Whether you are a customer or a stylist, no matter your role, you guys are all family and we’re so happy you’ve shared this journey with us!

Thank you to all who made it out to celebrate with us! Cheers to 9 years and here’s to at least 9 more!

Special thanks to Shauna Dullanty Photography for all the amazing shots!

Garden Curator and Stylist

How long have you been working here? 

I started here at Adorn’s West End location last November.

What inspires your personal style the most? 

My personal style is mostly inspired by my desire to be individual. I love that we carry so many different vendors so we can all express ourselves differently through our clothing choice.

What is your favorite part about working with Adorn? 

All the amazing gals I get to work along side with! It’s my second family here.

What is your favorite brand carried by Adorn? Why? 

Rails is my favorite brand. They have such high quality pieces that are simple yet different from anything else you typically see and every new Rails piece we get in, fits into my style perfectly!

What is your favorite current trend? How would you style it? 

I’m currently obsessed with Statement Stripes. Whether you’re going on a date in an awesome striped dress or just need to throw on a striped button-up, over your favorite tee shirt and take it easy, you’ll be styling’.

Which designer inspires you the most? 

I’m going to have to go with the classic Coco Chanel. Her designs were revolutionary for the time and I think we are always in need of designers that are always trying to change things, update things, and make them better.

What fashion advice do you have for this upcoming season? 

Push your boundaries! It doesn’t matter if it’s not something you would normally wear, try everything on. Don’t be scared to stand out a little bit.

What is your favorite item you have ever purchased from Adorn? 

My Citizens of Humanity Cara High Rise Denim in Ankara Wash is by far my favorite pair of jeans I have ever owned. They fit perfectly and have a slightly vintage look to them. I wear them way too often and just about everywhere. I pair them with a tee shirt and sneakers for running errands, with pumps and a silk-y blouse for happy hour out, or sandals and a sweater for a quick day trip to the beach with the dog.

Employee of the Week: Rachel

Rachel Reposar

Events Coordinator and Stylist

How long have you been working here?

One glorious month!

What inspires your personal style the most?

My experiences! I grew up in salons and have been working in the hair and beauty industry for 12 years. After turning 30 this year I really started to embrace what works on my body type and more importantly what makes me feel amazing. I’m a creature of habit and tend to gravitate towards what I know works.

What is your favorite part about working with Adorn?

The team of strong, capable, fashionable women. We have fun! Not to mention the clothes are to die for and the customers are rad.

What is your favorite brand carried by Adorn?

The Odells make really special pieces. I love when I put a dress on and I don’t want to take it off. Halston is a no-brainer, too.

What fashion advice do you have for this upcoming season?

Don’t shy away from color! It brings life to your face, it brightens and uplifts your mood, and it makes you unforgettable. I’m over black and grey all the time, switch it up.

What is your favorite item you have ever purchased from Adorn? 

All of my jewelry- it makes me happy to top off an outfit with a killer accessory.

Employee of the Week: Stephanie

Stephanie Christy

Store Manager of West End

What inspires your personal style the most?

I love celebrity style, so scrolling through my Instagram feed before bed is what inspires me. Also, window shopping from time to time, to get a feel for what the current trends are and how I can put outfits together of what I already own.

What is your favorite part about working with Adorn?

All of the employee‘s! and Nicole :)

What is your favorite brand carried by Adorn? Why?

As of now, I would say Hard Tail is my favorite brand since that is what I’ve purchased the most. I’m a sucker for a black bodycon dress, cant have enough!

What is your favorite current trend? How would you style it?

I’ve always been into the edgy/grungy style (distressed denim and t shirts, leather, black, etc). One of my favorite looks is a pair of distressed denim put together with a white v neck and a blazer- trendy, cute, and edgy.

Which designer inspires you the most?

There is no specific designer that inspires me. If I like what I see, I am not worried about who designed it!

Lavenda for Anne Revere Launch Party Recap!

Last week we had the wonderful chance to celebrate a new line of jewelry to sell in our stores: Lavenda by Anne Revere!

We are absolutely in love with this line! When asked what inspired it, Lavenda said that it was a collaboration with her and her close friend Allie. It still has the classy, minimalistic style that Ann Revere Jewelry is known for, “but ours has an edgy, bohemian twist.”

Shoppers, bloggers, and Lavenda herself joined us at our Division store last Thursday to launch the line and enjoy a fun night full of photos, shopping, and cocktails!

Portland’s New Deal Distillery provided us with everything we needed for Ethan to serve up Moscow Mules, Gin & Tonics, Tequila Sunrises, and more for all the guests to enjoy!

We loved getting to see so many faces, like blogger Rachel on the left! And Allie, from Ann Revere Jewelry!

And of course stylists, such as Poppy Lyn!

Our own stylists spent all evening greeting guests and keeping the dressing rooms full!

Blogger Paige headed that direction to try on all of our new Elk arrivals!

What party is complete without a photobooth??? All photos were taken by the lovely Shauna Dullanty!

Lavenda and her good friend Laura goofing off for the camera!

Oh and did we mention that we had a makeup artist there to get everyone’s makeup ready for the weekend? Chloe did an amazing job!

This was so much fun and we were so happy to be joined by so many friends! Special thanks to everyone who came out to support us and Lavenda!

You can shop the new line at any of our Portland Boutiques!

To stay up to date with all of our upcoming events you can like our Facebook page here! Hope to see you at the next one!

Marissa Ferraro

Assistant Manager at Division 

How long have you been working here?

2 Years

What inspires your personal style the most?

Comfort! I love a good cozy sweater or a well worn in jean that I can wear everywhere and still look stylish!

What is your favorite part about working with Adorn?

My favorite part of Adorn is the lovely ladies I get to work with!

What is your favorite brand carried by Adorn? Why?

My favorite brand is Cupcakes & Cashmere! I love that their collection has everything from everyday tees to stylish jackets. All their pieces are classic and always end up being the most worn item in my wardrobe!

What is your favorite current trend? How would you style it?

My favorite summer trend is flowy dresses! On a hot summer day I love to throw one on and pair it with strappy sandals, a fun statement belt, and jean jacket for the evening.

Which designer inspires you the most? 

One of my favorite designers is Mariella Pilato. She’s an incredible jewelry designer based out of Bali and has astonishingly unique pieces that are inspired by the architecture around her.

What fashion advice do you have for this upcoming season?

Get yourself a pair of perfect fitting denim! Find a cut and style that fit your shape and you can build most of your wardrobe around it for the upcoming season.

What is your favorite item you have ever purchased from Adorn?

My Citizens of Humanity Rocket High Rise Denim! These fit my body perfectly and I wear them everywhere!
