I have this thing with Portland murals and might end up shooting all of the future looks in front of one of them!

Created: August, 2013
Location: NE 21st & Alberta Street
Artists: Blaine Fontana, Zach Yarrington & Jun Inoue.
Forest For The Trees is a non-profit project dedicated to the creation of contemporary public art. In the last two years, it has been behind the creation of 35 new murals in various neighborhoods around Portland, almost entirely created within two weeklong painting sessions.
These murals have become landmarks that are embraced by the local community and visitors alike, contributing to Portland’s reputation as a creative cultural destination.
The project brings together local and international artists in a collaborative setting and provides them with the creative freedom and resources to create lasting works in environments that are freely accessible in the Portland community. Furthermore, the organization educates the public on the artwork, intent and process through workshops, panel discussions and classes.

Unless provided, the origin of the items showcased in my looks will not be disclosed as I may no longer share the values of the brands from which I purchased them. I highly recommend you to look for an alternative in my shop, look for similar items in second hand shops or, if you're talented and/or motivated, make your own!
