Anyone that has spent time with us, or even spoken to us, in the last two years is fully aware of our affinity for all things Portland. We went for a visit in March of 2010 and have been OBSESSED ever since. It is official, we are head over heels in love with the city!
When I imagine life in Portland, I picture myself wearing beautifully crafted clothes such as these, sipping tea, and eating homemade bread with talented and creative people like the designer for Filly, Emily. Her writing is truly inspiring and she makes The most beautiful clothes! She has a fantastic website and an amazing blog, and she constantly writes things like this:
'Nothing is haphazard, or casual, or accidental. It is all part of the same project: Beauty. A curated life.'and this:
'I hope Filly expresses my love for the unexpected moments when life is happening and you are in it. And you are amazing. Simply living and simply beautiful. 'and this:
'My inspiration for Fall 2011 is a young married couple in the place they live, work and entertain. One undemanding setting in harmony with nature. Two individuals in harmony with each other.'
Yikes, how romantic?
Oh Portland, how I love thee!
