Spring Faves #1

YAY! Spring is here and Mother’s Day is right around the corner (Sun, May 11), so I’ve put together a bunch of spring shop roundups for you to go wild with. Most of these wonderful shops have created special shopping codes for you to use, which you’ll find included with my picks from each place. These are some of my current favorites from lovely little shops independently owned by amazing ladies and rad gents. Have fun perusing and get yourself (or a loved one) something pretty. MORE SOON! ♥

Happy Monday. I hope everyone had a good weekend! My Saturday was wonderful, but Sunday could, frankly, use a punch in the damn face. Maybe there is something going on with the planets?? At any rate, I hope this week makes up for it in spades and that everyone has a breezy week with of good vibes all around. Let’s all manifest some awesomeness.

Here are some things I think are cute from Steven Alan. My current faves are the striped sandwashed silk dress, cropped car coat, mhl cropped jacket, the crossover jumpsuit, the white oxford sling backs, this white marble trivet, this apron and all the rest. More HERE.

RillRill

Sooo… I guess I want every piece from the new RillRill Spring/Summer 2014 jewelry collection. Beautiful, weighty white and black marble statement jewels with copper and brass bits? YES, please. I think my favorites are No. 1, No. 3, No. 7 and No. 8. I’d also love to see RillRill on brides this summer! These beauties are made by Portland designer, Katie Freedle. If you are here in town, stop by Backtalk, Katie’s lovely boutique at 3962 N. Mississippi Ave. These jewels will be there as well as a million other stunning things. More HERE.

Half Pint

If you haven’t been to Portland’s Half Pint yet, now is the time to check them out! The shop recently moved to N. Mississippi Ave from their previous — and somewhat hidden — location on NE 30th & Killingsworth. I love their new light-filled space and rustic decor. Half Pint specializes in second hand leather goods including boots, belts and bags for women, men and children. Their styles range from vintage western to more urban looks with a little bit of everything in between. I love seeing the amazed reactions my friends have when visiting for the first time. It’s definitely your best bet for scoring awesome vintage leather footwear!

As if the selection alone weren’t great enough, prices tend to verge on ‘screaming deal’ making Half Pint feel almost too good to be true. Plus, the new new location is, conveniently, right by some of my favorite eateries including ¿Por Que No? and Miss Delta. Whether you live close by or make a special trip to visit, be sure to stop in this no-longer-hidden gem often to check for new stock! You can also see new arrivals on Instagram and Facebook.

Half Pint is open seven days a week from 11AM–6PM and is located at 3920 N Mississippi.‎

TENOVERSIX

While checking out the spring arrivals at Tenoversix, it has become clear that I have a few recurring favorite designers lately: Jesse Kamm, Shaina Mote, Calder, Creatures of Comfort, Alasdair and Samantha Pleet–most of whom I’ve featured here a few times over the years. I’ve been saddened by the huge increase of synthetic fibers being used for garments with high end prices (even by independent designers–check your fabric content, friends!), so the folks who work with natural fabrics really stand out to me season after season. Here are some of my Tenoversix shop faves below–I’ve linked the images to the items. More HERE.
