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

Concetta’s Closet

I’ve been admiring a lot of things at Concetta’s Closet — a new to me online vintage shop. I love the gorgeous party dresses they have in the shop right now — perfect for New Year’s Eve. I also LOVE the lingerie and loungewear pieces. With the holidays coming up (and a plan to take a few days off — fingers crossed!), I am consumed with the idea of lounging around the house while I read and listen to records and vintage slips and robes are a definite go-to for me. Vintage slips are so comfy, but still look flattering and put together. Here are a few of my favorites from Concetta’s Closet below. Images linked and more HERE.

Kate Towers

I was so happy to hear from Kate Towers that she launched a new online shop that showcases a beautiful collection produced outside of her custom design work. Kate is such an integral part of the Portland fashion and design story — it’s wonderful news that her pieces will be more accessible. That said, they are still being made in small quantities from her SE Portland studio. I absolutely LOVE the black Zip Up Smock Coat and my other favorites are the Deep Green Dress with Stripe and Oversized Checked Dress. More HERE.
