YAY! I’m so happy to be having a big Emerson Fry giveaway today to welcome autumn and celebrate Emerson’s beautiful collection. One lucky person will get a $1,000 gift card to spend on whatever they’d like from the dreamy Emerson Fry shop! Emerson’s clothes are a joy — beautifully made, versatile, feel so good to slip on and you can move in them. I really appreciate her thoughtful take on design, textiles, production and what modern women will want to reach for in their closet again and again. My current faves are the Ryan Coat, the Tie Up Dress (both in black and Stone), the black coated Moto Frenchie Jeans, the Layering Hoodie, the Jet Silk Yoshi Tunic, all the EF Sweaters and all the pretty shoes. Plus, Emerson has a cute dog, is obsessed with finding balance, takes risks and loves Donovan records, so she’s 100% my kind of lady. More HERE. GOOD LUCK, FRIENDS! ♥

I’m fully immersed in the fall frenzy, but my head was turned by the upcoming Howard S/S 2016 collection by Portland-based designer Britt Howard. I’m excited for Britt’s move to design under her own name instead of continuing to produce her apparel under a house line for her company Portland Garment Factory. I love so many pieces coming up for spring — all those beautiful dresses and breezy separates look perfect! Once spring rolls around, everything will be available on the Howard site and the list of stockists is sure to grow considerably. OK, now back to your regularly scheduled autumn programming.

My friend has the Lineas Wrap from VOZ and it is truly a thing of the coziest beauty. It’s soft, made-to-order, and hand-woven on a centuries-old loom — pure joy, really — my friend refers to it as her “scarf husband”. There are so many other things from their collections that I’m curious about as well, like the geometric knit beanie, the cloud-like Infinity Scarf, the ivory Diagonal Wrap, this other Lineas Wrap, the cute Cropped Sweater, the grey Fringe Top, and the Tahi Tunic from last fall is stunning — and on sale. Actually, there are pieces available from their previous three collections that are magically all on sale. More HERE.

Now that I’m in deep with my Nisolo shoe love, I need to get it together and choose a couple pairs for fall. My shoe situation is bad. I’m in that state where most of my go-to pairs are in various stages of dilapidation and/or haunting irritation: too squeaky (!?), too stretched out, suede bald in some spots (not in a pretty way), were always slightly big, were always slightly small, that weird stitch is still in that spot that rubs my ankle raw or they’re just “sittin’ shoes”. Anyways, I need some new everyday kicks and the well-priced, handmade beauties by Nashville’s Nisolo are beckoning. I’m most enamored with the Oliver Oxfords in both Noir and Brandy, the dreamy Smoking Shoes in Noir and Brandy, the black Austin Ankle Booties, and the Chukka Boots in Steel and Brandy both look super versatile.

There’s a lot of cute stuff in the new Make It Good collection for fall. My favorite things from these Portland-based ladies this season come in the sideways rain print, the white and black pebble knits and the grids. Namely, this Sideways Rain Smoke Dress (and in Marine), the Black Sideways Rain Shift Dress, the White Sweater Dress, the Black Pebble Knit Dress, the Black Pebble Knit Crewneck Sweater and the Natural Grid Canvas Knit Top. I’m also a fan of the sweet Glow-In-the-Dark Solar System Bikini Undies and Glow-In-the-Dark Leggings for lounging. They really give my favorite cheesy 1970s pickup line a fighting chance: Are those space pants you’re wearing? Because your ass looks out of this world! More HERE.
