Gift Guide

Gift Guide

With less than a week till Christmas, it's shopping crunch time.  Whether you felt prepared a few weeks ago, the snow and ice probably delayed your progress a bit.  We've got some fool-proof, crowd-pleasing ideas that will keep you at the the top of your gift giving game.

From L to R: Grisal cashmere scarf, Herno down jacket, Vince cashmere cardigan coat & Jack Gomme leather tote bag.

Try to stick to things that are easy to fit, or even better, require no fit at all.  Lush sweaters, light weight scarves and small leather accessories are always a good bet.

Wishing you a very merry Christmas!

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!

Pret-a-Party

Pret-a-Party

We dressed up the kids, faced the downpour and the puddles and survived the sugar high.  But now, with Halloween behind us, it's holiday time! Thanksgiving is only a few weeks away and things are about to get busy.  We want to give you a head start on your holiday wardrobe and get you party ready.

Thanksgiving tends to be on the casual side here in Portland, it's often jeans with a cute top or cozy sweater and a some statement jewelry.  We've stepped it up a notch, by eliminating the denim, but the styles remain easy to wear, comfortable, and of course, chic. 

From L to R: Vince directional rib cashmere dress and stretch leather leggings, Samira 13 tassel pearl lariat, Rene Escobar oxidized silver bracelet, DVF fur cross-body, Frame "Le Crop" cashmere turtleneck, T by Alexander Wang skirt, Rene Escobar oxidized silver necklace, Sara Weinstock half moon pendant with diamonds, Vince "Signature V" cross-body, Vince laser cut sleeveless turtleneck, Rag & Bone "Perry" pant, Sara Weinstock yellow gold and diamond earrings and bangles, DVF leopard print clutch.
