Friday!

Happy Friday! Yay. I’m really looking forward to taking a rose care workshop (HELLO! WHEN DID I TURN 80?!) this weekend with my good friend, Sarai, at Portland Nursery. Since I only started growing roses last spring, I’ve never done winter rose pruning. I’m terrified that I will kill all the roses I worked so hard to grow! We’ll also be taking care of our niece all weekend — which always makes me happy. And Valentine’s Day, of course. Fancy dinner out with my husband and this year we actually planned in advance so everything wasn’t booked when we said “Oh! It’s Valentine’s Day!”. Not that Vietnamese takeout in your jammies isn’t romantic — there just might be a big slice of red velvet cake involved this year. Anyways, have a good weekend — Valentine’s, Galentine’s or rolling your eyes at all of the crazy. ♥ xo Jen

Shop Visit: Milk Milk Lemonade

Located in lower SE Belmont, Milk Milk Lemonade is the tongue-in-cheek moniker of the OLO Fragrance flagship shop and outpost for an array of clever, thoughtfully chosen wares. Meticulously curated to compliment the full OLO line, you’ll also find skincare, art objects, magazines, jewelry, feminist accoutrements and accessories that perfectly represent co-owner and self-taught perfumer Heather Sielaff’s wit and keen eye.

I had the occasion to spend a few hours at Milk Milk Lemonade during a special artist workshop in December and felt so cozy, at home, and inspired by the bright art and plant-filled space. After accepting some divine tea in a lovely ceramic mug, I chatted with Heather and Jonathan Sielaff, perused all the goodies and, honestly, kind of wanted to stay forever.

Not only does Milk Milk Lemonade carry the entire line of heavenly OLO Fragrance, they have items not available on the OLO website, including: room sprays, incense, body oil, facial serums, floral waters, bar soaps, mood lifters, and so much more. After picking up a bottle of Valens to join my already treasured bottle of Cedar + Rose, I’ve added OLO’s Violet / Leather to my must-purchase list with just about everything else Heather has cooked up.

Adding to my must-purchase list, and being the natural skincare addict I am, I am coveting MML’s selection of Binchotan charcoal soaps and face puffs, Sasawashi scrub mitts, and Jao moisturizers. I can’t help but imagine stocking up on more OLO goodness, those scrub mitts, a locally made Cocanu chocolate bar, a copy of The Gentlewoman, and staying in for what I am convinced would be the best evening of self-care I could indulge in. Other items of note include ‘boob’ print textiles from Gravel & Gold, jewelry from Better Late Than Never, Hazel Cox & Ming Yu Wang, silk embroidered Thank You shopping bags, and stunning hand-thrown porcelain vessels from Lillith Rockett. Milk Milk Lemonade is definitely an amazing place to pick up dreamy gifts for friends and loved ones!

Shop Visit: Stand Up Comedy

Located in the downtown Portland’s historic Morgan’s Alley, Stand Up Comedy is an internationally-renowned shop helmed by Diana Kim. Formerly a curatorial assistant of performing arts at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, Diana uses her artistic eye and sensibilities to create this lifestyle boutique that embraces high fashion as much as it likes to poke a little fun at it.

honey-kennedy-pdx-shop-visit-stand-up-comedy-04

Stand Up Comedy’s space is just as unique as its wonderful offerings. A jewelry store in its past life, the original displays remain intact inside and out. Outside, large windows meant to house jewels instead show off rotating art installations made exclusively for Stand Up Comedy by the designers they stock. A lighted ‘Applause’ sign is the indicator that you’ve arrived. Once inside, clothing racks run down the center of the space while brightly lit display cases line both walls to house amazing accessories, including: shoes, hosiery and jewelry, as well as a great selection of books, cosmetics, fragrance and skincare potions. Stocking a little bit of everything, Diana considers Stand Up Comedy to be a micro-department store.

Conceptual and hard to find brands such as Germany’s Bless and Japan’s Cosmic Wonder are stocked alongside favorites like Base Range, Dieppa Restrepo and local designers like Alexa Stark and Howard Woman. Diana’s eclectic mix of goods is a breath of fresh air — or dare I say, a sweet chuckle. Other items of note: natural luxury skincare from Kypris and Butter Elixir, jewelry from Kat Seale, FAUX/Real and Saskia Diez, socks from Strathcona, and too many great art books to name. With knowledgable and friendly staff ready to answer questions and explain concepts, an afternoon spent shopping at Stand Up Comedy is an afternoon well-spent.

Elizabeth Suzann: The White Collection

I love the new White Collection from Elizabeth Suzann! For someone who loves design, it’s strange, but I put zero thought into my own wedding dress in 2006. The ceremony, rehearsal dinner, modest decorations, food, booze, subtle Twin Peaks-ian vibe, mid-ceremony sing-a-longs and secret party afterwards all went wonderfully, but I wore a snooze of a frumpy navy vintage dress and my hairdresser didn’t understand my references and it was all kinds of wrong with no time to fix it. I actually didn’t feel the least bit comfortable or pretty until I was swigging a bottle of champagne and nibbling a cupcake in my cropped pants, ballet flats and soft sweater at the afterparty. Things would have been different if I’d been wearing Elizabeth’s silk Florence Pant and Cora Shell or the same top with the Bel Skirt. SO GOOD.

It makes me really happy to see stunning designs meant for the ceremony, the parties surrounding the event, the honeymoon or just to wear played up or down for a variety of occasions unrelated to getting hitched. I especially love the pieces I mentioned above, but I also adore the Cora Shift, Vera Slip Dress, Clara Jumpsuit, and the more formal Hollyn and Eleanor gowns. Beautiful! More HERE.

“It is our aim to make clothing for the modern woman who feels most radiant in simplicity.” —Elizabeth Suzann
