Fore Front Fashion with Laura Serino

Hey, Portland! What's under that coat?

My good friend Cora had the idea to ask people to show me what they wear under their coats in the winter. “Call it Portland Exposed!” she told me. She is brilliant. I spotted this girl in purple tights and thought that she probably had something very cute under her parka.

Lo and behold,  a cardigan with deer on it! I am loving this series already. Just as I was snapping her photo, her friend arrived, so I asked him to oblige me too.

A nice tucked in oxford shirt layered under a hoodie? Lookin’ good, Portland. You’re lookin’ good.

How great will it be if I stop someone on the street and under their coat they are wearing a sign that says: CAUGHT YOU! I’d blush and then I’d be proud.
