Portland’s Pretty Guest Blogs!

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.

Here, Jess is rocking the Bailey 44 Wallbanger Dress and the Calou Fia boot

 

Meet Jess, our vivacious and energetic Fremont store manager. Jess has a mean collection of succulents, loves gardening in general, and is obsessed with dresses by Bailey 44. With her petite, athletic frame, she looks best in dresses that have a shorter length and show off her fit figure. 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+ A with Jess

Q: Describe your personal style in three words.

A: Clean, classic with a slight edge

 

Q: What’s your favorite dress you’ve ever owned?

A: My Wedding Dress

 

Q: What kind of dress do you KNOW doesn’t work on you?

A: Loose Maxi’s and calf-length A-line’s do NOT work for me

 

Q: Which part of your body do you like to accentuate?

A: My arms and chest

 

Q: What’s your favorite brand at Adorn for dresses?

A: Bailey 44 and Sanctuary

 

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.
