Portland Threads: Vintage & Thrift

Saturday, September 13, 2014

 

Prudence Street Style

Portland is a mecca of vintage and thrift shops with unorganized piles of clothing, unique jewelry, and aggressive customers eyeing every treasure you happen to set down.

Women this week dressed in their found vintage and thrift treasures to create one-of-a-kind looks that can withstand the breezy end of summer days. An old handmade animal bone necklace hangs in front of a white band tank and is paired with a beat-up American Apparel hat, while an all-black ensemble with a chunky thrifted belt creates a canvas for handmade jewelry that elegantly dangles from the neck.

“I like things that tell a story and what most people don’t have. I buy random stuff and somehow it always goes together. I would never wear crop tops, I feel like unless I’m at the beach, I shouldn’t show my stomach.”

“I like stores like Eden, Flutter, and Paxton Gate because they carry high fashion deconstructed clothing, minerals, organic matter and taxidermy. I envision seeing my work in places like that. I like decrepit things that have history.”

“I just buy vintage clothes from House of Vintage. I would never shop at Hollister because the clothing is all the same and too expensive.”
