Derby Day at the Lizard Lounge
Besides Jade mentioning her love for the incredible hats from time to time, we’ve never had a reason to celebrate the Kentucky Derby. We’ve never been to Kentucky… or a horse race. However, we heard that The Lizard Lounge, whose shop we wished we lived in, was hosting a little Kentucky Derby event with the dapper fellows of Harding & Wilson. Since we are HUGE fans of H&W, we knew we had to drop by and at least say hello. Peter, one half of H&W, greeted us at his quaint stand as we came in the store. They had a raffle and an instagram contest going on, so we knew we had to enter (guess who won). They were even serving up Mint Juleps. Why not join in the festivities where we get to dress sharp, drink a tasty libation, and enter a raffle? Such fun.
We also have some exciting news to share today. We’re thrilled to announce that we have been selected as members of Portland Fashion Week’s Style Collective! We will be attending and photographing the various events from live music performances and runway shows to after parties and featured designers. Speaking of designers, Portland Fashion Week is searching for fashion designers to take part in their Emerging Fashion Designer Contest. So if you or someone you know has a knack for fashion design, you absolutely have to enter!
