Shop Visit: Field Trip

honey-kennedy-field-trip-pdx-shop-visit

A newcomer to Portland’s SE Division Street, Field Trip opened in July and has already settled in perfectly amongst their well-loved neighbors. True to its name, visiting Field Trip feels a bit like a fun and relaxing mini-getaway, one that just happens to be a rad shop. The expansive space features lovely wood floors, a dedicated area for weekly workshops, and even an outdoor patio. I was surprised to hear that Field Trip’s owner, Kara Green, had recently moved back to Portland from New York because this space has a perfectly relaxed vibe that brings to mind surf culture. It works and I found myself wanting to spend the rest of my day just hanging out with their awesome inventory.

Everywhere you look there is something that inspires major want. Clothing, accessories, apothecary and housewares are abundant and cohesively curated. Among the standouts are apparel from minimalist master Ilana Kohn, Moon Juice holistic supplement powders (like the romantic sounding Love Dust!), lots of cool wall hangings and custom-made Field Trip skateboard decks. You’ll also find lots of gorgeous ceramics, textiles, tableware, blankets, great magazines, modern minimal jewelry and natural skincare lines.

As mentioned, Field Trip hosts creative workshops on a weekly basis. Workshoppers can choose from regular Monday night Drink & Draw sessions, Tuesday Kids Crafts, and specialty classes like DIY beauty treatments and block printing. I made my visit on a Tuesday and can vouch for the kids crafting — I spied some major cuties having fun and working hard on their own wall hangings.

Friday!

honey-kennedy-san-simeon-by-louise-dahl-wolfe-harpers-bazaar-june-1958-01

Hi! Happy Friday! I hope you all have a great weekend planned or no plans to ensure maximum lounging and spontaneity. I’m still recovering from surgery and finally got out of the house for a couple of hours last night for pizza with friends. I’m stir-crazy, but trying to be patient so I can heal more quickly. In this vulnerable state I’m realizing that I’m not very good at leaning on others or asking for help. That kind of support wasn’t really there for me growing up and into my twenties, so I’m trying to recognize this and become more comfortable with it now that I have supportive, truly nurturing people in my life. Lots of inadvertent soul searching lately — it’s unnerving, but for the best, I think. I hope. Have a good weekend and please do some cartwheels and frolicking out there for me! ♥ Jen

Shop Visit: Cord

I recently stumbled upon NE Alberta’s Cord while out looking for a birthday gift for a friend and was instantly in love with the high design space. Describing themselves as stocking ‘ranked and well stowed’ objects, I agree and would go even farther to say Cord is expertly bridging the gap between fun and function.

Owner Carey Schleicher-Haselhorst opened Cord three years ago when the space next door to her husband Myles Haselhorst’s art gallery, Ampersand, became available. Having wanted to expand for a while and inspired by her love of vintage ephemera and childhood camping trips, Cord was born. The name is referential to a cord of wood, which Carey fondly recalls chopping with her father each year as winter approached and is referenced in Cord’s cool and contemporary logo. You’ll find a thorough selection of thoughtfully designed camping gear including axes, knives, camp stoves and blankets, lanterns, utensils, and beautifully functional trip and trail packs from TOPO Designs and Red Clouds.

Not much of a camper? That’s OK, Cord also has a large selection of gadgets, home accessories, apothecary and shaving supplies, books, stationary, the aforementioned vintage ephemera, and art objects — including a dazzling selection of mobiles. I had no trouble finding a delightful gift for my friend and between their selection of art books, knives, colored pencils, Stanley flasks, and accessories like leather wallets and Zippo lighters, Cord is now my go-to whenever I need a gift for the many hard to shop for men in my life.

Cord is located in Portland at 2916 NE Alberta St. and is open Wednesday through Saturday from 12PM to 7PM and on Sundays from 12PM to 5PM. If Carey is there, be sure to ask her for local camping recommendations! You can also shop Cord online and follow @cordpdx on Instagram.

Elizabeth Dye: Painted Desert Collection

I’m typically not much of a bridal girl, but creations by Elizabeth Dye always seem to sway the pendulum more in that direction for me. I love her references and nods to strong female characters, eras and independent personalities — it adds another layer of depth and magnetism to the moment for me. Elizabeth’s Painted Desert Collection is a stunner and it’s wonderful to see the designer creating without being encumbered by also running a popular retail bridal shop — she has more room to unfurl her magic. My current faves are the Silvermine Caftan, Dune Gown (that strappy back!), the Mojave Gown (those sleeves!), the blush Paloma Gown and, most emphatically, the Dunaway wedding gown. More HERE.
