"Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak." -Rachel Zoe
About: I have a love for travel and all things fashion! I'm the General Manager and Lead Merchandiser here at EcoVibe, and a recent graduate from the Portland Fashion Institute in Apparel Design. I debuted my first collection at the Fade to Light fashion show in August 2018 and featured all natural and sustainable fabrics!
My Personal Style: My closet is currently 75% EcoVibe Apparel, 25% thrifted finds. I love classic pieces and tend to make my shoes the statement piece - I'm definitely a shoe girl! I also have a huge appreciation for locally-made jewelry and garments with a story. I love any excuse to play dress up and express myself through fashion!
In my spare time: I've been getting in a fun health and fitness routine with group classes and making healthier food options at home with recipes that I find on Pinterest. I also try to read at least one book per month amongst all the Netflix shows I binge watch! Currently, I'm reading Becoming by Michelle Obama and rewatching Criminal Minds on Netflix. I'm looking forward to doing more outdoor PNW adventures in the warmer weather!
Current favorite item(s): I am obsessed with the brand Ética in general for all their amazing ethical practices and denim! I've been living in the Ivy Denim Jumpsuit! You can wear it as is or throw on a fun printed blouse underneath for added coverage. I've worn it with booties, espadrilles, and tennis shoes - it's so versatile!
Sustainable fashion tip: 25% of the carbon footprint of clothes comes from the way we care for them. Air drying your clothes just six months a year would save 700 pounds of CO2! Plus, your ultra soft tees and sweaters will thank you!
"As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others." -Audrey Hepburn
About: I am the Director of eCommerce and Marketing from ☀️ Hawai'i - moved here about 4 years ago from Boston for school. I recently graduated with my BS in Org. Com | Advertising and PR.
My style: I would describe my style as skater meets princess. You'll find me wearing men's pants, jackets, and shirts tied up in the front and pairing that with cute heels, booties, or flats. Sometimes I dress a little more girly, and show off my feminine side with some overalls or a form fitting bodysuit, but it really all just depends on the weather.
In my spare time: I'm catching up on sleep or thinking of my next project/idea, working on freelance projects, or playing video games...
Current favorite item: The Alex Ankle Boy Skinny. It's hard for me to find jeans that fit, especially high waisted jeans that hit me at the right point. Because I have a shorter torso and I'm only 5'1", finding jeans that don't give me weird lumps or ride too high is hard. These hit perfectly at my natural waist, helping to accentuate my curves.
Sustainable fashion tip: Donate your old jeans to companies that can repurpose them for housing insulation or make something new out of something old!
"Fashion is the armor to survive the reality of everyday life." -Bill Cunningham
“I told myself that I was going to live the rest of my life as if it were Saturday.” -Chip Gaines
About: I just recently graduated from Concordia University where I played basketball for four years. I finished with a degree in marketing and a minor in Sports Management. I am originally from Idaho but since going to college here I decided to make Portland my home. I am a sales and marketing specialist here at Ecovibe.
My style: My style would be described as simple but comfy and cute! I like to find simple pieces that are versatile that I can wear for multiple different occasions. like to accessorize with bracelets, necklace as well as layer pieces with jackets and cardigans. When I dress up I like to wear dresses and cute hats with sandals.
In my spare time: I love to be active. I enjoy going on hikes, exploring as well as playing basketball. While I love being active I also enjoy binging my favorite Netflix shows. I have watched just about every crime show in the book but my favorite is Criminal Minds and NCIS. I can also quote most of Friends and The Office.
Current favorite item: My current favorite item would be the Melissa Printed Dot Dress! I love this dress because it is bright and colorful and so comfy. I love that it can be worn casually or to a nice brunch or event. It is the perfect color for summer being bright and sunny! I like the many different ways you can style it with accessories, hats and shoes. It’s a great dress to have as it can serve many purposes!
Sustainable fashion tip: Donate your old tennis shoes! Shoes can take up to 50 years to decompose. Companies use them for all kinds of things like pellets for the turf as well as building tracks. You can find donation bins around Portland as well as services online where you can send them in.

"EcoVibe is my favorite boutique in Portland. When I first stumbled upon EcoVibe, I immediately loved the space and the styles on display. And, one look at the owner Leonard Allen, I knew I was in good hands. It's not common to see a man in Portland so put together, all the way down to the shoes, attaché and handkerchief. Len helped me put things together, he encouraged me to try on things I might not have otherwise. The shopping experience was fun and fruitful. I valued Len's eye for style and his warm and fun personality so much that I hired him as my personal stylist." - Amy Prouty, Clere Consulting
