I really love street fashion. It all started when I was maybe 16 or 17 and first discovered the Japanese magazine Cutie. It’s filled with page after page of adorable girls on the street in quirky styles and I would go back and to my old issues for years when I was looking for inspiration.

Nowadays of course, there’s a wide assortment of street fashion blogs out there, from professionals like The Sartorialist and Garance Doré to the quirkier-leaning Hel Looks and London Street Fashion. Each is wonderful in its own specific way, much like the cities they cover.

So I am delighted that there is a new street style blog for all the cool, stylish people around Portland: Urban Weeds. There are certain to be a lot of food carts, a lot of tattoos, a lot of bikes, and a lot of beards.
