Brookes Boswell Millinery

I love all the cute hats that Brookes Boswell Millinery has been making in Brooklyn. I’ve been going cuckoo looking for a summer hat to shade my ghostly pale Irish mug and Brookes’ are really sweet. I also love that she makes made-to-order hats. Everything is 100% hand blocked and the stitching is done almost entirely by hand. Beautiful! More HERE.

Shop Visit: Shop Boswell

honey-kennedy-shop-boswell-pdx-shop-visit-01

I’ve been writing about the beautiful hats made by designer Brookes Boswell for years, so I was thrilled when I found out she was moving from Brooklyn to Portland a little over a year ago. Then, in May of this year, she opened the doors of her incredibly dreamy little shop on SE Morrison St. called Shop Boswell. I’m absolutely over the moon to have her gorgeous aesthetic and cohesive selection of makers represented in a stunning storefront space!


A SWEET DEAL FOR THE HOLIDAYS:
Get 25% off at Shop Boswell with code: FRIENDSANDFAMILY now thru 11/30/16. Shop Boswell will also be donating 10% of all hat sales to Planned Parenthood from 11/30-12/31.

I knew she was a genius at making timeless hats and creating beautiful lookbooks, so it is wonderful to see it all come together in her space that doubles as her hat making studio. The beautiful hues of felt and straw, the glow from the huge front windows, special little handmade objects, stunning clothing and bags, amazing shoes, dazzling jewels, and good tunes all make for such a cheerful shopping experience. Oh, and let’s not forget sweet Brookes and her BFF, Bao, the lovey-dovey blond shop dog (see pic below ♥).

Some of my current favorites are all the shoes from The Palatines (more coming soon!), all the lovely dresses, everything from Caron Callahan, the ceramics from Notary Ceramics and Eleonor Bostrom, all the great bags (including Sara Barner, Aand, Ara, and Welcome Companions), the fantastic selection of jewels (especially Uni, Young Frankk — pssst hand earrings!, BLTN, and Jujumade!) and all the Brookes Boswell hats, of course!
