Road Trippin'

So, as promised, I brought back a car full of fantastic pieces for the shop. I was able to purchase some great wool items that are on their way to the cleaner this week and should be trickling into the shop in the coming weeks. There is also fantastic tooled leather purses, a whole box of 1940s suede shoes, amazing jewelry and some select hats that I'm so excited to share!

Road trips like this can be lonely, filled with hours of books on tape, RadioLab podcasts and 3 iced coffees in a single day. I do try to enjoy the views (the Columbia Gorge is so gorgeous), eat at a local restaurant and let the thrill of a car full of vintage to push me forward.

I've already spent today sorting through jewelry and some clothing that doesn't need cleaning so new items are in the shop starting today!

Happy Friday

A little bit of Marilyn is always a good thing. This photo is from the always inspiring Life magazine photo archives. I hope you have a lovely weekend. I'm leaving tomorrow evening on a two day buying trip for the shop. With any luck I'll have a whole car load of vintage clothing to share with you next week.

Fall Arrivals

27 inch waist. $119

I can hardly believe it's been over a month since I've posted here. The end of Summer flew by as I transitioned the shop out of warm weather clothing and slowly started bringing in wool and knits, which have been selling like hot cakes! Anyway, today I'm sharing some of my favorite pieces in the shop for Fall. Lots of oranges, browns and cute autumnal prints.

 26 inch waist $119
 30 inch waist $62

 30 inch waist $64

It's still fairly warm here in Portland (it's supposed to be 90 this weekend!) but I know the cold weather will be here before we know it. I'm so excited for apple cider, pumpkin carving and fires in our new fireplace!

Vintage Inspiration: Marianne Faithfull

It seems crazy but I'm already deep in Autumn buying for the shop. Wool, plaids and knits should all be arriving in a couple weeks. Marianne Faithfull is a great muse for my buying right now. I love the late 60s/early 70s vibe and her colors and patterns are always classic.

What are you dreaming of for Fall? We've had a crazy warm summer in Portland so I have a feeling that when the rain and overcast days hit, I might just be a teeny bit excited to set aside my sun dresses in favor of knee length skirts and a long sleeve top.
