Portland Threads: Maxi Dresses and Boho Beauties
Saturday, August 30, 2014
It’s summer; the weather is blazing, the tourists are out, and everyone either has a tan, a nasty sunburn, or has been hiding under a very shady rock.
As the summer draws to a close, everyone's eking the last from our regular rays, and adorning themselves in lightweight maxi dresses, rugged skirts, and knee-length dainty floral dresses. It’s not a surprise that women are channeling the bohemian approach to style - still, personalized accessories help bring an individual touch and dress up the dressed-down style.

But the earth would get really dry and breathless, so WATER and AIR became part of it....
