Happy Friday, friends! I am coming to you from St. Paul, Minnesota. We’re back visiting family again, but this time it’s for fun stuff like birthdays, tacos, and tequila. We even get a few visits with our friends here this time around. So far, I am resisting my urge to go vintage shopping and estate sale sailing because I tend to have good luck here and know we’d suddenly need to rent a truck to drive everything back to Portland. We’ll see if I stay strong! It’s tempting though, right?? Have the most wonderful weekend! xo Jen

PDX Event: Stars Summer Sale

honey-kennedy-stars-antiques-pdx-vintage-sale-02

STARS ON SALEThurs July 13 thru Mon, July 17 • 7027 SE Milwaukie Ave • MORE INFO

Local vintage emporium, Stars Antiques, is having their huge 5 day summer sale — starting today! All 3 of their shops (on the same block!), in Portland’s Westmoreland shopping district, will be overflowing with goods that all the dealers bring in and mark down for this event. It spills out onto the sidewalks every year and is an insanely fun vintage rabbit hold to fall down. If you can, I recommend going a couple different days during the 5-day sale. I always find tons of amazing things and you totally lose track of time while in the treasure hunting zone. SO MANY GOOD THINGS!

If you’ve already been eyeing something, there’s a good chance you’ll get it for an even a better deal. Make sure to stop by all three: Stars Antiques (7027 SE Milwaukie Ave), Stars & Splendid (7030 SE Milwaukie Ave), and Stars Too (7011 SE Milwaukie Ave) — all open from 11AM to 6PM. As always, I also recommend that you go to lunch at Jade Bistro for lunch — the vermicelli salads are perfect on hot days!

Alex Crane

I’m not normally a baseball hat person, but the linen and leather caps from Alex Crane could change that! Actually, all of Alex’s unisex collection is beautiful for everyone. The linen caps, totes, bags, shirts (unsure of boob gap situation for the button-ups, but they look good on the fellas!) and shorts are all versatile and immensely wearable. I love all of the prints — just soft colors with a lovely windowpane check print. I’d be into getting one of everything for my husband, but, for myself, I’m looking at the Whitewash Sun Cap, the Night Sun Cap, the Stone Sun Cap, all the corresponding tote bags, and the linen beach towels!

Abramey

I’ve been scoping out the beautiful shoes from Abramey by Noa Levy Aran for a little while and just noticed that most of her shoe designs are currently on sale. So, I thought this would be a good time to mention the shop and some of the styles I’ve been eyeing! My favorites are the Simone Sandals, the Talula Sandals, the Eva Sandals, the Sabine Sandals, the Olivia Sandals, the silver strappy Sophie Sandals, the Anouk Sandals, the Charlotte Sandals, the Caterina Booties, and the Alenna Booties. I am a person who has been very inspired by her grandmother, so I love that Noa was inspired by her gran’s words of wisdom when she was growing up, “When you dress in the morning, never look in the mirror before wearing shoes. The shoes are the ones to dictate your whole look.” Perfect! More HERE.
