LunaSol: Sonora

There are some beautiful pieces in the new LunaSol collection from Portland-based designer Lindsey Alonzo. Her Sonora collection for spring was inspired by the Sonora Desert, adobes, desert plant life and the earth tones and soft colors found in southern Arizona, California and northern Mexico. I love that you can choose from a variety of lovely linen colors for the pieces that incorporate linen cord. My favorites are the Aponi necklace, the Sierra necklace and the Puebla ring. More HERE.

100 Year Party

There are a lot of beautiful pieces for spring and summer at 100 Year Party right now. This shop is the new incarnation of what was formerly Pour Porter and I’m still in love with their merchandise selection and aesthetic. Some of my current favorites are everything from Atelier Delphine — the check dress with rope belt, stunning pebble dye Chloe jacket (SO IN LOVE!) and Lyric pant, and the natural Furoshiki rectangle bag. I also love the white NOT Side Pleat pants and all the amazing Sydney Brown shoes. More HERE.

Coclico

There are so many shoes from Coclico that I’d love to add to my closet. Their new 1970s-inspired spring collection has a lot of beauties that look comfy to boot. Some of my favorites are the pairs that include leather printed with designs by Portland’s Haley Ann Robinson — whose work I’ve mentioned before. My faves for the new season are those white Pink Flats, the black Golden Flats, printed Golden Flats, Rush Sandals, Doobie Flats, Yola Sandals, Ros Sandals and the Noir Wedges. I also LOVE the Iris and Ivonne. More HERE and HERE.

“A decade that conjures the memory of so many idle hours spent in total abandon; the warmth of the sun and the magic of twilight lingering with kindred spirits in the halcyon days of summer.” — Coclico on the 1970s

Friday!

Have a wonderful weekend!! I’ve caught some kind of awful flu and it sounds like a car driving on a gravel road when I breathe. I had so many fun plans for the weekend, but they have quickly devolved to tea and juice chugging while sleeping or watching Game of Thrones. I hope you all evade this beast — it really does a number on you. Have fun! xo Jen

Shop Visit: Lowell

Equal parts museum, gallery, and shop, Lowell is one of my favorite spots in town. Located just off the south end of North Mississippi and up the street from Beam & Anchor, Lowell’s small, colorful exterior belies the large and open interior where owners Maya and Dino have put together a wholly fun and reverent collection of objects. The shop showcases items from many world cultures, a special Southwest bent and goods from local artists. You’ll find ceramics, paper goods, vintage clothing, jewelry, rugs, and wood carvings in stock, displayed lovingly and with true curatorial flair.

I was lucky enough to visit Lowell on a surprisingly sunny winter day, which filled the space with warm, golden light. A steady stream of shoppers came and went, all on a first name basis with Maya and Dino, and it was lovely to be able to overhear their conversations about art and travel as I took in the beauty of the shop. Truthfully, I spent a little more time on my visit than usual as each corner pulled me in over and over, highlighting a gem I missed on my first look or just enticing me to take a closer look at something I had only glanced at before.

My shop favorites include Lowell’s custom candles that are handmade in very small batches (recent shop additions include candles poured into exclusive ceramic vessels made by local potter, Liam Drain), concrete fruit planters by New York’s Chen & Kai, vintage turquoise rings, cassette tape releases from Eggy Records, and illustrated calendars from Clay & Wiley Hickson. Maya and Dino just returned from the Southwest and have lots of new items from the trip hitting the shop now.
