PENDLETON'S PORTLAND COLLECTION

I am already obsessed with a city I have never visited and now they dub this crazy creative collaboration between Pendleton and a team of young forward designers after it and I have fallen even deeper.  I am a long time Pendleton fan and I have been following their collaborations for a while, wishing that I would have thought of it. It's in a word--cool.  Yes, cool. Taking the iconic blanket and Navajo motifs and re-interpreting into a high fashion collection? This is beyond inspired. They did such an excellent job on the presentation--the photographs by Chris Hornbecker are so crystal clear and the lighting just hits the perfect pitch of not too bright, a little moody without taking away from the clothes. The styling is simple and effortless and this model seems like the embodiment of American beauty. Amazing. How cute would I look with one of those sweaters and my new moccasin's?

Sooooo cute. I <3 Pendleton. It's so pretty, even if it's a heck of a drive from me. The drive itself is just breathtaking. Going from downtown Portland to the mountains by the Gorge to the flat praries of the Eastern Oregon? Amazing.

Miss Dionne doesn't that look cozy and sleek and I'm not trying to hard 'oh, this old thing?' sort of vibe?

Oh Mrs. Soup you make the trip sound like HEAVEN! I just know I would love it!

Miss Caroline I want to go so bad it hurts.
