Making Headlines in BFQ Winter….

Bend’s newest fashion magazine, Bend Fashion Quarterly, features desperado and shoes &…  in its winter edition.  And if you look closely you’ll see desperado’s own – Rebecca Meade and her husband Eric modeling some of our great winter looks from the store.

Eric & Rebecca opened up their home near Tumalo for the shoot and dogs – Ricky & Luna were happy to photo-bomb where ever they could.

When Eric isn’t modeling (ha! not in his comfort zone) he is a private business consultant at Purposeful Consulting  and an avid mountain biker.  Rebecca loves her job at desperado and is also in charge of the store’s website and marketing.
