“I love Portland’s effortlessly cool Northwest style. I’ve been shooting my street style blog Urban Weeds for over three years now, and one thing that always strikes me about living in Portland is residents’ non-judgmental attitudes,” says Lisa. “When scouting, I find all kinds of dress; from clowns (no joke), drag, and steam punk to business wear, everything is fair game, and no one really seems to mind or even turn to look twice. I think this opens up the opportunity for creativity in dress.”
“I see a lot of risk-taking here in Portland — it’s always fun. These ladies definitely know what they’re doing!”
“The looks I feature on Urban Weeds are those I find inspiring in some way. It doesn’t mean each outfit is perfect, nor does it mean that it’s exactly my personal style, but there are always elements done well. They are looks for real people. Taking a fashion risk adds a little spice to life. It doesn’t have to be perfect as long as it makes you happy. Fashion is fun!”
Stay tuned this fall for more street style fun by Lisa!
