Designers and artists are starting the new year off by trying to get rid of last year's stock so they can start anew—lucky for us! Who cares if it's last season? Portland isn't really a season-based fashion city anyway. We support our local designers by purchasing investment pieces that last.

That's why I'm excited about this one in particular: The theme of this clearance trunk show appears to be sexy sweet, with Sofada, known for classic, well made pieces that are sexy and timeless, and artist Brenda Dunn, who will also have prints available (her prints are everywhere, it seems, even on Portlandia, on the episode where the MTV CEO is a kid). There will also be items from SheShe, jewelry from Lolabelle, and more!
