The Novelty Theory.




We have a sweet collection of novelty print cotton skirts in the shop right now. Skirts are such an easy way to wear vintage, you can pair them with a simple cardigan or even a tucked in tshirt. These are all shown with crinolines for a authentic 50s look but you can modernize them by wearing them without one.

These can be purchased through our Etsy shop here.

Also a quick reminder about our trunk show with Sue Eggen, Fifty Fabulous Frocks, next Saturday, February 7th from 5-9pm. The invite will all the info can be found here and I will be adding photos of the dresses there next week.

Vintage Inspiration: 1950's Blue






The wonderful thing about vintage is how timeless most of it is, especially items from the 1950s. A dress that nips in at your waist and is tailored to hug your curves, is never going to go out of style. Add to that the always classic color blue and you have a dress that looks like it was made yesterday (except it will last you a lifetime and someone was paid a living wage to make it!). I'm ready for the a new year filled with more classic dresses (in a variety of colors!).

I also want to mention our upcoming trunk show with Sue Eggen. You can find out more info here and I will do a blog post the week of the event with more photos and information!

New Arrivals!





As much as I love coats and sweaters, I'm ready for some cotton sun dresses! I started putting out just a few cotton pieces this week in the shop and I just listed some great ones in our Etsy shop (including all 4 of these!)

Things are starting to get back to normal after the holidays. I'm working on our Valentine's window now and it should go up on Tuesday. We are also having a really fun shopping event featuring my friend Sue Eggen at the beginning of February. I'll be sure to post more info next week. So far, 2015 looks like it's going to be a lot of fun!

Shop Scenes: December






It was sunny this morning when I got to the shop giving me a perfect chance to shoot some photos! We're still stocked up with plenty of gifts and holiday dresses and I just love how our window display turned out this month.

I also wanted to take a chance to thank everyone for their support this year at the shop. Every holiday season I'm reminded how lucky I am to have the shop and be able to do what I love for a living. I'm always blown away by how busy we are this time of year and how wonderful it is that the people of Portland choose to do their holiday shopping locally. A sincere thank you to each person that has shopped at the store, browsed our Etsy shop, followed me on Instagram or supported Wanderlust in any way.
