Upbeat Fashion at Reveille

reveille big room web

Retailtherapist
Fashion doesn’t travel at the speed of light. It’s a slow progression that eventually ends up with year-old trends hitting the shelves of regional department stores.

Beached Male

Arts & Books
When Traci Price found a hot pink raft abandoned on the banks of the Clackamas River last summer, her first instinct was, naturally, to take it home and make an outfit out of it.

Project Runway 7, Episode 11: The Story of Anthony and Cleopatra


Retailtherapist
Top Five reasons last night's episode of Project Runway was the best of the season so far: 5) The incessant product placement did not make Retail Therapist hit mute repeatedly. 4) Designers were asked to make clothing viewers might actually want to see—a red-carpet dress for show runner Heidi Klum—instead of outfits for one-legged breast cancer survivors, preteens or puppies. 3) ...   More
