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!
I love the linen garments and housewares from Knock Knock Linen. UK designers Egle and Gintaras make their lovely pieces with high quality linen from their home country, Lithuania. It’s inspiring how passionate Knock Knock is about linen, “Our products use traditional and sustainable materials that our grandmothers use to make clothes, towels and kitchen textiles with. At the same time, they have a modern design.” All the linen clothing is dreamy and they make gorgeous bedding, kitchen and table linens and bath towels. I want everything! Linen is the best — so utilitarian and versatile, but still elegant. More HERE.

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

My friends at Bon just launched a new online shop and a dreamy new summer lookbook to celebrate. Mother-daughter duo Bonnie and Crystal Flynt own Bon and do a wonderful job stocking lovely things you want to see in your home or wear 5 days a week. I have a feeling that if I ever make it to their brick-and-mortar in Tucson I will just happily empty my entire bank balance into their hands. My current shop faves are the sweet gathered striped skirt, Moroccan straw hats, straw bags, polka dot pillowcases, large striped linen towel and the colorful Bolivian frazada. More HERE.

I’m in love with this stunning limited edition jewelry collection that Sophie Buhai designed during her artist’s residency at Villa Lena in Tuscany. Sophie, co-founder of Vena Cava, took a creative break to go to “adult art camp” and came out with a fresh perspective and this fantastic architectural collection made from bronze, marble, bone and wood. The bracelets and that beautiful hair adornments are blowing me away! What a magical experience to spend two months being inspired by this breathtaking region while learning with and from other artists from all over the world. Such a dream! I would love to visit Villa Lena someday. All of Sophie’s collection is exclusively for sale in the Villa Lena concept store in Tuscany.
