The reasons I feel lucky to live in Portland haven’t stopped stacking up in the 2 years since I first moved here. The newest reason is that Laura Irwin and Holly Stalder just opened HAUNT, a sweet boutique and studio in the ever-growing 811 E. Burnside building. I’m so excited to see HAUNT grow and I’m very curious about the designs they are currently working on! I love how feminine and light the shop feels… light as a feather… light as a ghost? Beautiful.

Laura is a knit hero and author of the book “Boutique Knits” and Holly is a designer that has been an integral part of the Portland fashion and retail scene for many years. Recently, one of Holly’s pretty shrugs was featured in Martha Stewart Weddings magazine (page 22 in May 2010 issue).

HAUNT is now carrying Rachael Donaldson’s gorgeous Demimonde Jewelry line.

Find them on… the HAUNT blog, Facebook and Twitter. You could also just come to Portland to visit them and all the other amazing shops at 811 E. Burnside – that would be best!
