This Friday, September 8, Jane’s Vanity is having a huge dream sale on their stunning lingerie, loungewear, hosiery, and clothing in a range of sizes from 32-38 A-E and XS-XL at The Cleaners at Ace Hotel.

Look for lots of linen designs from Morpho + Luna to flutter away, past seasons of Olivia Von Halle pajamas, some gorgeous Elise Anderegg, Grazia’lliani, and many, many other beautiful things. It will be an escape of slinky, European treats in the middle of downtown Portland — with cocktails!

Cute Old Things

I love so many things in the Cute Old Things shop right now. Lena definitely has a curatorial eye and buying vintage things from other countries often means finding great utilitarian designs that you won’t find in other people’s homes. My current favorites are the green enameled alarm clock, the white enamel coffee pot, the mustard yellow Tolstoy books, the blue glass seltzer bottle, the amber glass apothecary jar, and the medium format camera. More HERE.















You guys, how is it already the end of August?? This summer is going by in a flash and I intend to make the most of the end of summer with plenty of time with friends coming to stay with us and making some escapes to the coast and fruit and flower farms. Also, patio times and ice cream and roses and and and… how can we fit everything in?? I love fall, but I’m not quite ready. I hope you have a magical weekend and get to savor the last days before the leaves fall. xo Jen

Eliza Faulkner Designs

I mentioned Eliza Faulkner Designs a little while back in a Lovely Things post, but the sweet creations from this Montreal-based designer really deserve their own feature. I adore her flouncy sleeves and use of natural textiles — especially the Raffi Top! Their designs aren’t similar, but it somehow makes sense that she interned for Erdem while studying fashion design at Central St. Martin’s College of Art & Design in London. Just a fun spirit, modern classic shapes, and some delight-sparking design details, I guess. More HERE.
