Yamila Abraham is a force to be reckoned with! She is wine guru and by that we mean somalia, a badass one at that. In her travels to her native Chiapas, Mexico she has acquired some truly amazing items full of history and quality. For her last birthday she treated herself to a beautiful Cartier watch. So for those who have asked themselves, “do people wear Cartier in Portland?” your question has been answered. Her awesome taxidermy that accessorizes her walls she scored most of on her way down from snowboarding on Mt. Hood. We adore her love for white denim, easy button ups, her overall jacket obsession as well as her awesome leather boots.
