Food and Fashion seems like an unlikely pair… but, I’m excited to be talking about these two subjects ALL month long! I’ll be chatting about curvy lady fashion, toddler fashion, accessories, party fashions, beauty, recipes, chefs, cocktails and more this month. They are all topics that I’ve posted about before on my blog, but I haven’t really been able to focus on either while working on all my party posts.
Now, I’m not going to leave out the party people. I’ll have real events, party DIYs, and such goodies as usual, but I’ll be focusing a lot more on Food & Fashion this month. Why this month? Well, that is because I am going to be attending two awesome Portland events this month that are giving me a ton of ideas and content to share. Let me explain…
Portland Fashion Week is slotted for Sept. 12- 14 with runway shows, pop-up shops, and parties. The next weekend there will be several satellite parties as well. It is going to be huge event and I am so excited to have been chosen as one of the Portland Fashion Week’s Style Collective members. I’ll be sitting front row for several of the runway shows and attending fun fashion-centric parties. I may not be the most fashionable lady out there… but, I LOVE fashion. Growing up I seriously wanted to be a fashion designer and have made my own clothes on several occasions. This is sort of a dream come true to me.
I’m hoping you will be excited as I introduce you these next few weeks to some of the designers from Portland Fashion Week in behind the scenes looks at their studios and interviews. If you ever wanted to see what a budding fashion designer’s studio looks like… you are in luck! I’ll also be sharing posts from the front row of the runway and the after parties. But, it won’t all be about PFW. I have tons of fashion/beauty related posts that range from fun Toddler fashion looks, curvy girl fashion, and beauty tips.
Are you in Portland and want to attend one of the many awesome runway shows? Tickets start at just $20! After parties are 21+. You can get into the runway shows and join in on the after parties. If you are going let me know so that I can see you while there! Buy Portland Fashion Week Tickets Here!
If you’ve read many of my food posts here on A Well Crafted Party then you have to know that I love food and I love the idea of eating local and supporting local businesses. Portland’s foodie event of the year (in my opinion) is coming around this September and I am pumped to be there celebrating Portland’s bounty and the chefs that do crazy awesome things with it. FEAST Portland is scheduled for Sept. 19-22 and has foodie events, lectures, and parties throughout the city during that time. I received a blogger pass to visit some of the events and share the experience with you all.
While I love sharing my experiences here on the blog I know it is not nearly as satisfying as being there yourself or learning about how to do some of the things you are seeing… so, it won’t be all event posts. I’ll be introducing you to some awesome food companies, chefs, recipes, cookbooks, and more this month. If you enjoy cooking, creating cocktails, or learning more about places to visit in the PNW then you won’t want to miss this month’s food posts!
Live in the Portland area or are visiting town during this time? Check out the many FEAST events coming your way including lecture series, cooking demonstrations, tastings, and dinners! Tickets for FEAST are on sale now!

My hopes are that the content ideas I’ve received from being a part of these events will be interesting and creative content.
