Wendy Westerwelle is the lead stylist at Adorn’s Division location. Everyone loves Wendy for her free spirt and fun loving personality. She know’s exactly how to style every body and make you feel unique and beautiful. Today Wendy told us her favorite picks at Adorn that she’s been loving at the moment.
First, Wendy choose this outfit which is great for work during the spring! Wendy says “I think of Audrey Hepburn in “Sabrina” wearing this perfect pair of ankle slit pants with the perfect oversized Bella Dahl white shirt. Every woman needs these pieces in her basic wardrobe. Inter-changable and a beautiful basic. Dress it up with Dolce Vita yellow shade slip ons!”
Second, Wendy picked out two maxi dresses great for layering when it’s warm or a little chilly out! “Elk denim is just gorgeous on many different body types. The fabric looks rich! This O’dell dress has beautiful fabric and is amazing for day or a show in the evening!The belt is hand made leather wrap belt that no fashionista can live without. Shown with the Elk or over a big shirt with jeans!”
Next we have this perfect look for when you want to layer for our unpredictable Oregon weather. “Mother fray jeans have movement and life worn with sneakers and this must have Hard Tail skinny in the new PINK! I love The Fidelity jean jacket. The fit is perfect because of the stretch and the fading compliments the body. The bag by Tah is worn here for day but looks great on a late date!”
Lastly, Wendy knew that this matching set would be a hit at Adorn! “Bobeau Skyler blouse and skirt are just plain adorable. They can be worn together for a great look or separate with Jeans and a black Bobi t with the skirt. BOHIO is so great!”

Citizens of Humanity was built on the desire to provide high-quality denim for all customers as well as creating fits that work with any body type and desired look! We wanted to take some time to share our favorite cuts and exactly why we love them so much! We’re starting off with our lovely ladies over at the Fremont location and their favorite pairs.
Brittany, our incredible Fremont manager and stylist, was gushing over her favorite pair: the Chrissy Uber High Rise Skinny jeans. Brittany shared that she loved this style because they are so high-waisted and “it’s hard to find jeans for curves that don’t gap in the back” while still “tucking everything in!” She also relishes the fact that they are thick so they feel like “REAL denim” rather than a pair of leggings like some other jeans. Not to mention, they have huge pockets, which is a huge cherry on top!
Alisa was enamored by the Emerson Slim Boyfriend Jeans because they “hug everything so comfortably and the quality is amazing.” She also loved how flattering they are while maintaining a more “relaxed, causal vibe.”
Alisa said that she’s “a skinny jeans girls at heart, but sometimes it feels good to loosen things up a bit.” She styled her Citizens with one of our Daydreamer “Je Ne Sais Quoi” T-shirts!
Stay tuned later this week for a look at Division and West End’s favorite Citizens! We’d love to hear about your favorites and how you style them!
We’ve wrapped up another incredible Lovefest event at Adorn and we wanted to share the love with the rest of you by giving a recap of the two-day event. Every year, Adorn closes one of its stores on a selected Sunday (this year is was Divison on the 11th and Fremont on the 18th) and we invite all our loyal and adorn-able customers to come pamper themselves with hair, makeup, skin, and nail treatments while shopping!
We were joined by Angelina, owner and creator of TAH bags, stylist Robin Allen, Fate Beauty Society for all our hair needs, nails by the fabulous Charmaine, and of course facial treatments by Vallor & Such. We had a blast hosting all of these local vendors and truly enjoyed treating our customers to a day of self-love! Check out some of the highlights below!
Thank you to all the fabulous vendors who joined us to make this event possible and an even bigger thanks to all our customers who trust us to keep them looking incredible while having a great time! We’re already excited for next year’s Lovefest!
We’re back again with some of our favorites for spring, and this gorgeous weather has us trying on ALL the spring dresses at our three locations! Of course, we’re all about the florals (cue soundbite from “The Devil Wears Prada” with the glorious Meryl Streep), but we have so many different styles and cuts that we just had to showcase all the different dresses we have!
If you’re all about the boho vibes, we love this Gilli Floral dress in teal. The bell sleeves and the higher, empire waistline are the perfect details of this dress that will have you ready for summer in no-time! We paired with a pair of Frye mules and our favorite Lavenda jewelry (available at the Division location)!
We have also got a ton of new pieces from The Odells which means that no matter your style or preference we have a dress and pattern just for you! The Maxi Wrap Dress has a stunning, deep v-neck and caped sleeved that make it an incredibly versatile piece. Then, one of our favorites is the Clover Dress in Dandelion with its tulip hem and drawstring, elasticized waist. It is so easy to dress or down and, of course, figure flattering in the simplest way.
Finally, if you’re looking for something a little less casual, we have this Stone Row Keep It Fly dress! We love the sheer yoke and sleeves that mix sophistication and sexy in the most irresistible way. With its dark floral print, it is also perfect for the transition from winter to spring.
Last weekend was the bi-annual PDX Collective Sale, an even where Portland’s most well-known and unique boutiques come together to sell their fall and winter items and begin to get ready for the new spring clothes. There were 11 amazing boutiques that all brought some great pieces; whether you were looking for some winter clothes with a great discount or items you can wear all year long, there was something for everyone!
Here are some behind the scene pictures of what our favorite boutiques had to offer and what to look forward to next year!
GILD is known for their unique and beautiful shoes ranging from slides to heeled booties; they seriously have everything. What they brought to the sale was no exception! Adorable shoes for any style and can be worn any time of year.
Perican Bing had a selection of chic and sophisticated clothing which ton’s of Portlanders appreciated for that more polished kind of look.
Radish Underground came to impress with jeggings, cozy zip ups, relaxed dresses, and even a $10 t-shirt/legging bin. They were a hit with any customer looking for an artsy yet chic feel.
Ecovibes was back with some of beloved vegan leather jackets and ton’s of sweaters to help you spruce up your winter wardrobe before spring is finally here! Ecovibes said they were so excited to be back with the PDX boutique family all under one roof.
Lastly, Adorn had some amazing deals on premium denim. You could find MOTHER, 7 for all mankind, and Citizens of Humanity all under $70. We also had some great t shirts, dresses, and sweaters.
Now you know what amazing deals and items the PDX Collective Sale offers! We can’t wait until we see you again this September to purge all our spring and summer clothes.
We’re back again, sharing some of our favorite looks for this coming spring! We have so many new goodies at all of our locations and since we talked about colors and accessories, we wanted to share one of our favorite styling tips: layering! If you’re from Portland, you know that spring is hit-and-miss in terms of weather, which means wearing multiple layers is typically your best bet for staying warm and stylish at the same time!
This first outfit is as comfortable as it looks. We’re all about athleisure with these Publish Brand joggers that are beyond soft and are perfect with this Michael Stars Brooklyn Jersey crew neck (with metallic foil stars, no less) and our Mauritius Leather Wild Lawov jacket! We finished this look off with the Melissa Beach Slides that add the perfect pop of pink.
This Ali & Jay dress in magenta (hitting those jewel tones!) and 360 Sweater cardigan pair are the perfect spring work outfit. We love the bright colors of this outfit, especially when they’re accented by this Virgin Saints and Angels necklace and layered with a longer piece. Layering is all about the clothing, layering jewelry can also be a great way to dress up your office attire. Finish it off with a Minnie & George purse and you’re all set for that work lunch!
Finally, we loved this funky, cozy, layered ensemble. We layered one of our favorites from Hard Tail, the long sleeved skinny tee, in the Pantone color of the year, Ultraviolet, with this super cute AG Jeans Gisele Jumpsuit. The details of this jumpsuit are irresistible, and if you still need some bundling up, we’d go with a Mod Ref Cardigan!
Keep an eye out for more spring trends and tips, and head to any of our three locations to get your fashion fix!
