The ladies at Woonwinkel are going all out on Wednesday with their LUSH: Design Week Portland Open House with a fun, jungle-inspired wonderland for plant lovers! Life in the Pacific NW means we’re surrounded by lush greenery and a lot of us feel inspired to surround ourselves with even more plants in our homes and with beautiful plant motifs in decor, jewelry, textiles, clothing. Two local designers are popping up from April 26 through May 14 — Natalie Joy is bringing her amazing Brass Plant Mobiles and a jungle of custom Brass Vines and Revolution Design House will have their popular Boxcar Planters en masse (including 2 custom colors for the event!). There will be a raffle during the party for one of each from the designers! Plus, rad indoor garden-inspired goods debuting during the pop-up. There will also be bubbles and snacks and great people. LUSH runs through May 14.
Plus, Woonwinkel’s colorful, dreamy Color + Clay Ceramics Pop-Up and sale will still be going strong through May 1! You’ll find the vibrant works of Brian Giniewski, Pigeon Toe, Hella Jongerius, Ashley Hardy, Mary Carroll Ceramics, and Sarah Wertzberger. A rainbow of ceramics is available for perusing and purchasing. MORE INFO.

I’m loving the sweet designs and French New Wave cinema vibes from Une Heures by Chrissy Leavell. Besides directly hitting on some of my favorite 1960s film stars and singers, the Une Heures silky knits also hit home with that feeling you get when you find a classic vintage piece that is leaps and bounds above how current clothing is made. They feel like such a treasure because you know it is unlikely that you will ever be so lucky as to find the same piece again and you know wearing it every day will just hasten your goodbye. Often when you find late 1950s/early 1960s knits in this vein in our country they are made from polyester, so it’s lovely to see them available in luxe Italian silk. I especially like the short-sleeved crew neck and the long-sleeved mock neck. Portland peeps — Une Heures is available at Johan (632 SW Pine St)! Keep up with @une__heures on Insta. More HERE.
YAAAAAY! Everyone is invited to the grand opening of Project Object this Friday night! Lovely T Ngu, from Portland’s beloved Upper Metal Class jewelry line, has been working hard to get this shop beautiful, full of dreamy little things, and helpful to people in need. Project Object supports women, LGBTQ, POC, artists, and designers. You’ll find artwork, clothing, jewelry, accessories, home decor, apothecary, paper goods, smokeware, and ceramics. It’s also nice to know that a portion of each sale goes towards nonprofits, like ACLU, Planned Parenthood, and Bradley Angle — a local organization that helps victims of domestic violence.
Come to the Project Object opening party and partake of sips, small bites, awesome raffle giveaways and rad things made by great people. Plus, meet and see the work of featured pop-up artist Klai Brown, the illustrator and ceramicist who painted a beautiful mural of ladies on the shop walls. The first 100 visitors will receive a complimentary Klai lady mural tote! Plus, her neighbors: Urban Nest Realty, Leeward Surf, Dava Bead, and Dream Cakes, will be having celebrations in their spaces at the same time. Spend a fun evening popping into each of the spaces to celebrate these amazing women-owned businesses! MORE INFO.

I’ve been loving all the beautiful shoes rolling in from The Palatines by Los Angeles-based designer Jessica Taft Langdon. I’m crazy about the cute pair of mary janes (currently on sale!) that I bought this fall from Shop Boswell and I’d love a pair from the new collection. My favorites for Spring/Summer 2017 are the Cream Super Matte Origami Block Heels (I love them in super matte black as well!), the Green Super Matte Ribbon Heel, the Pebbled Leather Slides, the Yellow Metallic Leather Slides, the Smooth Vamp Slingback, the Black Leather Ratio Sandal, the Green Super Matte Sandal, and the Black Pebbled Leather Slingback Sandal. Portland friends — stop by Shop Boswell to try some on! More HERE.
Happy Friday and Happy Easter! Here’s to a lovely weekend and, hopefully, a little sunshine. We have our niece, a party, and more puppy training on the agenda — we’re trying to keep it pretty a leisurely one. I’m going to gather some yummy things to make a little Easter basket for our niece today and MAAAAYBE we’ll try to go out for brunch Sunday — which could be a little nuts in a town where brunch is already nuts without a holiday thrown in! Eeeeps — we’ll see. Have a fun one! xo Jen
