Amazing outfit is looking really good and seems to be best for the summer.
Oh, so I guess we came out then?!! Lol
I stayed in the Potato Bug last month and it was so fun! The little red restaraunt up the street makes an excellent chowder if you need to feel a little fancy, and the handful of blocks that make up the town of Seaview is a nice break from the touristy tackiness of Longview. The lodge is gorgeous, I wish I had been able to check out the rooms they have upstairs. Sadly I was too tired to check out the fun looking divey bar across the street but I hope to make it back soon this summer, I love having a place that truly feels like a secret getaway that I can actually afford! I believe that they allow dogs in some of the cabins and trailers, and all the little kids that were hanging out there seemed to be having a blast. Awesome that this place is getting such great press, the owners should be really proud of what they have done with their space!

lofl that's rich
I'm still wiping all the blood off. Marjorie was right when she said Michelle killed it, literally she killed it.
Ok here it goes in order of looks down the runway.
#1, Funky hem on side breast that continue onto the sleeve. She botched it bad under the armpit. Overall, her best look.
#2, From a distance it looks like an arrow pointing up. Up close, it looks like the nose on Mr. Snuffaluffagus. What's with the models eyebrows?
#3, Looks no different than #2, just black. Still looks like the dress while swoop down on a peanut.
#4, Less is more. The tie. The tie! And what's up with the split collar in the back that crosses tips?
#5, What is coming out from underneath the skirt? I just don't like the front and rear panel that extends 2" down.
#6, Did she want someone with the whitest moon-tan evar and a chest as flat as a board to show her most revealing outfit? Pants were awful. Looks like she has a woody from the front and creases in the most bizarre way from the rear.
#7, Looks like the Mercury has a new sweater. Speaking of liberals, why did Patricia make that crack about Nina not liking something because she was a "conservative right winger"? Patricia, Nina has hated you since day one without regard to her politics (which is liberal).
#8, Get in the bat-mobile Robin! Why does it look like all her models were holding a cig?
#9, Looks like she is layering clothes for a contest. There's that stupid compass again. I'm surprised this model didn't push a Schwinn down the runway.
#10, This chick could rock the runway with a potato sack. I've seen this outfit in Shogun, it's only missing a Samurai sword.
#11, Oh look, it's a wolf! Looks interesting until she turns around and you see her shirt tails.
#12, And how does this relate to a wolf?
Worst final 3 EVAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

As one who has been engaged in sustainability in Oregon for more than three decades, Oregon's commitment and Portland's commitment to sustainability is unquestioned.
FashioNXT was a sustainable production last year (http://fashionxt.net/?sponsors/Bonneville-…) and will be again in 2013. Notably FashioNXT also has Water Restoration certificates addressing a critical issue in fashion and the world - clean water. Has any other fashion event anywhere done that?
What will be extraordinary about sustainability is when it is recognized not as the exception, but as the practice. The production of FashioNXT is there. It has been and will be. Each year sustainable apparel known more for its fashion than its sustainability has been on the runway - and it will again in 2013 among the stunning collections shown by internationally known designers. While the lighting is powered by green energy, the focus of all who are there will be on the runway fashion - even if it is sustainable.
It is the fashion not the story that sells the clothes. Any doubt? Read this wonderful post about Lenzanita - one of the most sustainable designers in the world:
Sustainability was there even if the story was not.
Like many things Portland, folks slap a green label on something, anything, and people buy into it for a while then wisen up. Same goes for Portland fashion. The public eventually figures it out and moves on to the next green label but Portland is especially bad about that.
Also agree this is a good column idea, though I have no idea why this is something for MOD, but Poster of the Week somehow isn't.
Also, I can't believe I'm seeing Reymont encouraging people to buy with only 3% down.
I would encourage everyone to think really hard about whether buying is a good idea. A home is essentially a giant, illiquid luxury object that you're going to be paying off for decades. A primary home simply is not an investment, under any sane definition. You shouldn't rush into it just because you have 3% or "that's what adults do."
Look at a mortgage calculator and think really hard about how much interest you're paying if you choose a 30-year mortgage. I would encourage you to think strongly about only getting 20-year or less.
Buy a house when you a) are sure you're going to be happy living somewhere for at least 10 years, b) you're as sure as you can be that your financial situation will be stable over that period, and c) you've saved the 20%. It's a lot easier to understand how huge the thing you are buying really is when you have to save and then fork over 20%.
There is some leeway there if you're (like Reymont, I believe) operating the properties as a landlord, or have the skill and capital to improve and flip, but for most people: be really realistic about your financial/carpentry abilities.
Houses are fucking expensive, and I mean AFTER you have "bought" them. The monthly cost of owning a house (even without factoring in 3K for property taxes in November) is at least a couple hundred dollars in a GOOD year (when nothing large needs replacing).
@HT - There are still several programs that let you but with only a 3% down payment or so.
This is a great idea for a column, even though I doubt I will ever be able to buy a house, the whole process seems so complicated, I wouldn't even know where to start! Would love to see a column addressing issues with financing, especially geared towards those (like me!) who make a decent income and have a rent that's about equal to most of my friends mortgages but lack the trust fund/inheritance/parents to provide a down payment.
I had been rooting for Patricia since day one---I think she is super creative (and is from my home away from home, New Mexico). Michelle and her numerous, short sighted and smarmy commentaries annoyed the hell out of me this year, but she made it and deserved to. I'm glad Layana did not make it---she came across as a privileged spoiled princess and her clothes were mediocre.
I think Joy is one of the best buyers/owner around. Wish I could have been there.
Yeah, Mrs. C&B and I were both kinda baffled that Layana is still here at this point. And it felt like the Patricia/Richard partnership was trolling on the producer's part. So we were pleased that she stayed, because she's consistently produced some interesting pieces -- she's one of the only contestants in a while whose collection I would want to see on the runway.
As much as I like Daniel's persona, his designs are getting increasingly unbearable. I thought the judges were going to shred him a new one but I'm always wrong.
Portland! What are you doing! Get your shit together, that look was garbage.
Ugh so frustrating! I'm really surprised the judges liked Layana's look. I think it was way too crafty. I hope they kick her off and keep both Patricia and Michelle because they both deserve to go to the finals and I'm tired of listening to Layana whine.
Is there a reason they couldn't do the photo shoot in Oregon? Oregon has deserts too. Also, "Desert Warrior"? Really?
So great to see Brookes' name!! Keep it up, Boswell baby!
Thanks Elizabeth for sharing the details of our event. The Pearl is buzzing with excitement and we expect it to be a great night! Hope you can join us!
That Amika hair mask is seriously the bizness!
