YAY! I’m happy to be having an Uni jewelry giveaway with very talented Portland-based designer Kiersten Crowley! One very lucky winner will get $200 shop credit to spend on Kiersten’s stunning jewels — that’s 2 or more dreamy pieces to add to your arsenal. I love that her designs are so versatile — they can really dress up an elegant evening look or look right at home with a t-shirt and jeans. The shapes are so interesting, they stack beautifully and the statement pieces really shimmer. It’s a tough call, but my current Uni faves are the Enola Necklace, the Mies Necklace, the Whisper Bracelet, the Emi Ring, the Cage Midi Ring, the Pagoda Earrings and the Ruby Whisper Studs. Lots more HERE. GOOD LUCK! ♥
UPDATE: Congratulations to Emily Krieger! She won this dreamy prize!

Hey, moon babes! My friend and fellow PDX rose nerd, Nicole of Seaside Sauvage, is knitting up these amazing phases of the moon Wax and Wane Headbands and I think they would be wonderful gifts for best friends, cool moms and rad nanas. Or, you know, just for yourself to keep your ears cozy and your hair just so. I’d go with black or grey, but she has a whole rainbow of colors to choose from. Find them HERE in her Etsy shop.
I’m really loving the modern letterpress cards and stamps from the Of Note Stationers ladies, Kate Kellman and Isabel Bonenfant, based in Boston. Kate recently won a Honey Kennedy giveaway and that’s how I found out about her lovely company — I love it when stuff like that happens! It’s difficult to choose, but my favorites in their shop right now are the Holiday card set, the You Dazzle Me card, the cute POP FIZZ CLINK! card, the Wishing You Joy card, the perfect Thank You card set, the hand painted Bob Dylan quote cards (frame one up for a sweet gift for a loved one!) and I really need a Custom Address Stamp for holiday cards. Kate and Isabel also have a lovely blog with an emphasis on slowing down and taking time to appreciate moments and loved ones. Also, @ofnotestationers on Instagram is very sweet feed. More HERE.

Located in the heart of Portland’s SE Hawthorne shopping district, Imelda’s & Louie’s is a spot where Portlanders flock when it’s time to update their shoe wardrobe. The large, inviting shop is stocked with stacks of fine footwear for both men and women and lives up to it’s tongue in cheek namesake, the notoriously stylish shoe collector Imelda Marcos. The store is overflowing with great autumn and winter styles right now! See HERE.
Some of my favorite footwear brands include Frye, Hunter, Fortess of Inca, Woolrich, and Jeffrey Campbell and I can always count on Imelda’s to have many of their best styles in stock as well as other high quality and high design brands. You’ll also find a sweet selection of accessories including cozy socks, colorful scarves, versatile bags, hats, and jewelry to compliment your outfits and your new footwear.
As you gear up for fall, stop in and check out Imelda’s fantastic selection of boots for both sexes. Gent’s can head to Louie’s to score their new kicks (SO MANY GOOD BOOTS!) — some NW favorites include Red Wing, Woolrich and Wolverine. There are currently a lot of wonderful choices for ladies and lads for rainy days, blustery beach times, walks in the woods and for looking foxy for a night around town. It’s easy to find something for yourself and getting an Imelda’s & Louie’s gift certificate for your sweetheart or other loved ones would be a lovely gift for the holidays or a birthday.
Imelda’s is located at 3426 SE Hawthorne Boulevard in Portland and is open Monday through Friday from 10AM to 7PM, Saturdays from 10AM to 6PM and Sundays from 11AM to 6PM. You can also shop Imelda’s & Louie’s online anytime. Be sure to follow @imeldasandlouies on Instagram and like Imelda’s & Louie’s on Facebook and definitely sign up for the Imelda’s newsletter so you don’t miss new arrivals, sales and events.
I’ve been a bit sweater crazy because I recently discovered that tiny moths ate many, many holes in quite a few of my cozy staples — bye bye, cashmere pretties. I love these new Maiami designs that Founders & Followers just got in the shop. My favorites from this phenomenal Berlin-based knitwear label are the beautiful gradient Mohair Big Cardigan, the nude Mohair Pleated Sweater, the grey Mohair Pleated Short Cardigan, the cream and coral Mohair Zig-Zag Sweater and the giant, cozy grey Mohair Shawl. More HERE.
I hope your week is wonderful, productive, romantic and fun — or that it’s whatever you want it to be. I’m trying my best to get one million things done before heading up to the San Juan Islands for a girls’ getaway with some dear friends. We haven’t had one in a few years, but it’s safe to say there will be a lot of hot mulled wine, giggling, beach walks, boardgames, late night talks, hugs and general silliness. Totally worth doubling up on work to get there — can’t wait! Here are some things to enjoy that you might not have seen last week… ♥
