I’m in love with the new Co collection for fall by designers Stephanie Danan and Justin Kern. The dreamy portraiture by photographer Amanda Demme is pure magic. The designers were so inspired by her work that they ended up designing some pieces based on the drama they knew she’d be able to create when they’d eventually collaborate on this lookbook.

The pieces look so sophisticated, but there are a lot of nice wardrobe staples. My favorites are the black honeycomb-stitch pullover sweater and the grey cashmere cable-knit a-line sweater (love it in black too) because they are simple and beautifully done — you could wear them multiple times a week for years. I also love the pleated ruffle-side top and the silk rose palazzo pants are aaahhhhmazing. I’d probably look like a rose festooned Pac-Man ghost in them, but they are glorious sight to behold. More HERE and HERE.

Shop Visit: Haunt


Located within stretch of East Burnside known for great shopping and eateries, Haunt is one of my favorite shops in Portland. When you visit Haunt, you find yourself surrounded with jewelry, clothing, perfume and accessories from both well-known local designers and up-and-comers. Equal parts retail shop, gallery and design studio, Haunt serves as a showcase for all things unique and desirable. This includes owner and in-house designer Holly Stalder’s talents for of romantic custom bridal pieces and other beautiful garments.



Holly is an indie fashion veteran and helped put Portland on the map nearly fourteen years ago after founding the fondly remembered local Seaplane collective with Kate Towers — another amazing Portland-based fashion designer. Holly is also one of the sweetest and friendliest shopkeepers in town and always has great suggestions to aid in your quest to look fabulous. For the times when you can’t find exactly what you’re looking for, her custom design services make it well worth a visit no matter what occasion you’re shopping for.



You’ll find Haunt at 811 E Burnside. Not in Portland? You can score some pieces in the Haunt online shop and you can find Holly’s hugely popular bridal designs in her Etsy shop. You can also follow Haunt on Facebook and @hollystalder on Instagram!

HAPPY FRIDAY! Have a wonderful weekend, friends! I am going to be cleaning the house in a “take no prisoners” fashion in order to do a massive purge of stuff. The idea of it all is pretty daunting, but I know that when fall rolls in it is going to feel REALLY good to be out with the old and more organized. Also, with more space for the new (insert clenched teeth emoji). Have fun out there — I hope your weekend isn’t just a view of a musty basement! xo Jen
