Nicole Cameron

  • Describe your lifestyle and interests.

    I feel fortunate to live in a state with fresh, forest air and absolutely love exploring the trails of Forest Park. Art is another passion. First Thursday art walk in the Pearl District is one of my favorite places to get inspired.

  • Describe your personal style.

    I have an eclectic style with a lot of variety. I’m constantly trying new combos to keep it fresh. I’ve got everything from bold colors to soft neutrals. I love my feminine lace, ruffles and florals as well as edgy studs, distressed fabrics and leather.

  • What’s one item of clothing every woman should own?

    A perfect-fitting pair of jeans and a properly fitting bra!

  • Describe your perfect vacation.

    I love a bit of spontaneity. I always want a good mix of time to relax and recharge as well as time to get active, learn and explore.

  • What’s a fashion trend you’d like to see come back?

    Platform shoes. Due to a back injury a few years ago, high heels are not my best friend. Platforms give a little lift while still being comfortable.

  • Describe your lifestyle and interests.

    When I’m not styling a client you’ll find me hiking with my husband & notoriously adorable doodle or crafting a new recipe. Travel fuels my soul and I always return home with new inspirations for my aesthetic tool box. I studied apparel design at Washington State University and love the immense possibilities within The Difference to create your own style story that is unique and effortlessly chic.

  • What should each woman own?

    A great fitting, structured jacket is a must!

  • What should come back in style?

    Kitten heels would make my feet do a happy dance!

  • Describe your lifestyle and interests.

    Babs joined The Difference team in 2021 as a Sales Associate, after being a client for many years. She resides in the beautiful Willamette Valley on a small horse farm, with her husband of 43 years. In addition to spending a lot of time with the horses, her four active grandchildren keep her busy. She loves to spend time outdoors, including hiking, skiing and walking on the beach.

  • How would you describe your personal style?

    I'd say I'm a mix of natural and dramatic. My style has evolved from when I was first a client at The Difference. Previously I wouldn't even go near any accessories and now I don't go anywhere without a fun pair of earrings - at minimum!

  • What's one item of clothing you feel every women should own?

    A comfy, fun sweater for our cold, dreary days in the Pacific Northwest and a great pair of jeans!

  • What's one of the rewarding parts of your job?

    I love helping women find their authentic style. It's fun to watch people the reaction of women when they see the whole picture come together and they are comfortable with their look and individual personality.

  • Describe your perfect vacation.

    I like to be busy and adventurous, so any vacation where there is a lot of history to explore is ideal (especially old castles!) Also, great food, of course.

  • What's a fashion trend you'd like to see come back?

    So many of the trends from my younger days are already making a comeback. I'd love to see a great maxi dress with smocking at the waist.
