Current in Camo

Camouflage is getting a major update this season and we couldn’t be more happy about it. Gone are the days when wearing camo meant blending into the background. This summer, brands are reinventing the pattern with a softer touch; incorporating it into more understated and feminine pieces.

ZADIG & VOLTAIRE KAVY EMBROIDERED CAMO JACKET, PAM & GELA CAMO TRENCH COAT & CURRENT/ELLIOT FATIGUE JACKET

A camo jacket is an easy way to introduce the pattern into your existing wardrobe. With a basic white tee underneath, pair yours with blue, black or white denim on bottom. Sandals are perfect for a day out shopping, but your camo look can easily be dressed up for night by simply changing into booties. Keep the rest of your look simple and you’ll be surprised by how versatile your camo statement piece turns out to be!

Memorial Day Midi

Memorial Day Midi

A week of sunshine has never been more welcome or needed here in Portland.  After a long, cold, wet winter and disappointing start to spring, a few days of 75 and sunny is just what the doctor ordered.  Unfortunately, our phones can't tell us exactly what's happening over the holiday weekend, so it's best to be prepared.  Rather than risk freezing your tail off in a sundress and sandals or wilting in jeans and a jacket, we thought we'd combine the best of both looks for an easy and casual Memorial Day look.

From L to R: ALC Sandra Dress, Vince Military jacket, shay white gold and diamond choker & Jack gomme leather tote.

Start with a breezy midi dress that can stand on it's own - this is a great time of year to snag a couple of versatile dresses (hello, wedding season) that can be worn day to evening - then trade your sandals for a pair of white sneakers to keep your look fresh and comfy.  Throw a military jacket over your shoulders to keep you warm into the evening and add a choker (that's on sale!) for a touch of glam. Finish it all with a light weight leather tote bag so you can bring along your BBQ essentials (a bottle of rosé and your favorite sunnies of course).

Party Ready

Party Ready

There's no better way to spread some Christmas cheer during holiday party season than with your clothes.  You don't have to go full on Mrs. Claus, but a little red, gold and green can be worn in just the right way to look both festive and chic.

Few designers do prints better than Red Valentino: with metallic brocade, bold colors and sparkling accents, this maxi dress will add just the right amount of joy to your ensemble.  Keep your accessories simple, with pops of burgundy and gold to accent the colors and textures in the dress.

From L to R: Red Valentino brocade dress, Shay Jewelry starburst choker, Julez Bryant bangles and Vince embossed leather cross-body.

Wishing you a holiday season filled with family, fun and of course, fashion!

Heavy Metal

Heavy Metal

The arrival of fall called for a change in fashion.  Less pristine and proper, now it comes with an edge.  A simple LBD is still chic, but has a little extra hardware.  Chains are no longer limited to handbags and skater kids.  Shiny and sturdy, these accents are showing up in unexpected places - replacing straps on dresses and lacing up the front of tops as well as oversized, multi-layer necklaces.  This metal moment extends beyond chains of all sizes, with the appearance of bars, grommets and other chrome accents.

From L to R: Serpui shearling and leather camera bag, Shay 18k gold and diamond chokers in white and yellow gold, Alexander Wang dress with chain straps & RtA Estelle hoodie.

The look remains glam with that touch of downtown, cool-girl that we always lust after.  For added edge, throw on a luxe hoodie and your favorite booties.

Mad for Plaid

Mad for Plaid

Plaid and fall go hand in hand. Unlike the frumpy flannels of the nineties, the plaid we're seeing this season is totally refined.  Timeless tartans are featured in silk chiffon and sophisticated silhouettes with an edge. 

From L to R: Loren Stewart necklace, Rene Escobar 18k gold and diamond bracelet, Annabel Ingall "Isabella" tote, L'Agence "Kendall" dress, Vince shearling trimmed jacket, Shay 18k gold and diamond choker, Vince cross-body, McQ plaid blouse, Joseph suede leggings & RtA "Rene" jacket. 

Pair your plaid with leather and denim and edgy accessories for a downtown vibe.  This look is anything but outdoorsy.
