New Arrivals!

We've been receiving some many new and exciting things recently - including some brand new lines and some new summer ready styles from our long time faves. 

If you've been in the shop recently you'll have noticed that we've started to carry some crystals and minerals. We're still expanding our selection but this week we got in two of Amelia's favorite mineral combinations - bladed barite with cerussite or vanadinite. There's just something about that mix of textures and shine that we can't get enough of! These both have some really lovely metaphysical properties too, check them out below for more details. 

Fire & Bone is a new jewelry line for the shop that combines nature and high tech science to create truly incredible, wearable pieces. Starting with real skulls, they create a digital version of the skull through 3D scanning and shrink it down to pendant size. Using 3D printing they create a perfectly rendered wax model that can then be cast into metal with traditional lost wax casting. In the end you get a highly detailed, tiny skull in warm, yellow bronze or silvery, white bronze ready to be worn by you! Check out the full selection here!

The summer heat is in full swing and we've got the goods to keep you cool, comfy, and cute, of course. Niki Biki bralettes are perfect for layering or even wearing on their own (fully opaque.) Here are a couple of our newest styles:

And finally, sundresses! As vitamin D deprived Portlanders, when the sun comes out we are ready to soak it up! (But don't worry, when the clouds come back just throw a little cardigan on and these dresses will follow you right into the next season!)

Field Day Pop Up!

We've been a fan of Field Day apparel for a long time. One of Amelia's favorite dresses from Field Day was once black and has been so well loved and worn that its now a soft gray (but still going strong!) We're so pleased to welcome designer, founder, and powerhouse, Trinity, to the shop for a one day only pop up. She'll be bringing a selection of one of a kind sheet dresses and summery halter versions of the sheet dress as well as restocking our in-store favorites. 

Come say hello, get a chance to own an original one of a kind dress, and have some snacks with us!

New Arrivals!

This round of new arrivals was all about sparkles and gems! We welcomed a new line, Mineral and Matter, to the shop and you're going to love their work! They make the most beautiful rings with moons, opals, and more - and even a crystal shaped tray to keep them in! Here's just a few of them, click here to see them all. 

New from the makers of the hidden crystal candles, Jax Kelly, is a collection of candles inspired by desert flora. Cactus lovers these are for you! They've also introduced a couple new crystals that we're very excited about!

Little Boxes is Back!

LBbanner2-550 copy.JPG

We're happy to be part of the best holiday shopping idea Portland (and anywhere?) has ever had. It's called Little Boxes (get it? 'cuz we're not big boxes), and it's an idea that started right here in Portland in 2011. 

Shop with us and TONS of local retailers on the Thursday and Friday after Thanksgiving and you could win an a Dream Vacation, a $600 shopping spree, an iPad Air, a stay at several local boutique hotels, spa and restaurant gift certificates, and tons more prizes. Those prizes are for real you guys!

It's 100% *free* to enter, and the more shops you visit, the more chances you'll have to win all these prizes. Plus, even if you don't win, we think shopping with us is a great way to spend time with friends and family and enjoy the richness and variety of our local shopping scene.

Full details and rules are available at the Little Boxes website, or stop by the shop to pick up a Passport with all the details you'll need to play along. If you've got an iPhone or Android phone, download the Little Boxes app to navigate and play along digitally.

So, pop in during Little Boxes to enter the raffle and take a look around; we’ll have mimosas, gift ideas, and smiling faces awaiting you! Mark your calendars now! Friday, November 25th & Saturday November 26th, 10am-6pm.

New Arrivals!

Lots of new jewelry and fall clothing has been arriving everyday! Here's a peek at just a few:

Ten 2 Midnight Studios, locally made by Liane Crigler, is rich with raw crystals, polished gemstones, hand applied textures, and a range of sizes from statement to minimal. We've got even more in-store than online. (Hoping to get more products put up soon!)

We've got new dresses and tunics in from Hubris Apparel - all sizes XS - XX! The Phoebe is one of her classic, most flattering designs and we love this cheerful rose print! 

From our house line we've brought back the popular Snuggle Cocoon Sweater pattern and made it in a soft, cozy evergreen and black melange. We've also debuted a new wardrobe staple - the black pencil skirt. Soft, opaque black jersey with enough weight to wear year round. 

Jax Kelly has expanded their earring selection and we've got some new additions that are just the best! Now offering a silver version of their gold dipped gemstone studs, several new turquoise designs, and the gleaming pink mussel shell studs that we know you'll never want to take off. We're also fully restocked on their crystal candles in 4oz and 9oz - just in time for gift giving season. The new Moonstone Candle with a fresh floral scent is our in-shop favorite.

NW Dance Project: Collection Recap

It was such an honor to work with the NW Dance Project on their annual fundraiser performance, Collection, alongside ten other local designers. We were given the opportunity to chose the music and create a look for two performance pieces: Spring/Summer and Autumn/Winter. I was paired with very talented dancer Julia Radick and was so impressed with the dance she created. 

Here is the Spring/Summer piece:

Knock Out: Recap

The first ever Knock Out fashion and shopping event (created by Claire Doody, the designer of our favorite local clothing lines Copper Union) just happened and I just have to say - Wow! This show was so good and so much fun! Leigh Rich killed it as emcee and Jes Baker of The Militant Baker spoke - she was every bit as amazing as you'd expect! 

 

You can see photos from everyone who showed, Copper Union Chubby CartwheelsAmeliaHubris ApparelRe/DressALLIHALLABombshellerProud Mary Fashion here. Lets hear it for Beth Olsen (BethOlsenCreative.com) for capturing the vibe and looks from the event!

Here's my quick video of my looks on the runway - I got to work with such great models!

New Arrivals & Coming Soon

Fall is truly here (in Portland anyway) and we've got some great new arrivals to celebrate! More is on the way, so keep your eyes peeled for new Hubris Apparel, Loco Lindo, and Field Day coming soon. 


Karina Dresses is a new line for the shop and we are very excited to welcome their flattering, easy fit dresses to our shop. XS-XX, prices around $100, and wrinkle free!

The Matty Tunic from Curator has been here for a bit, but kept selling out before we could get the word out! Restocked in dusty green and black, of course. Center pleat, cuffable sleeves, and pockets!

Niki Biki leggings are a staple year round, but this time of year we love to wear the full length, high waisted version. The wide banded waist feels snug and adds warmth!

While this chambray wrap dress looks summery here, it is an excellent year round dress. The fabric has a nice weight and the it is just begging to be layered with tights and a cardigan. 


Coming soon sneak peek!
