Vintage Shop Update | Constant Thoughts

We have some really lovely new vintage inspired pieces in the shop, as well as a some pretty vintage and antique items. These dreamy soft pinks and sultry blacks with touches of antique accessories make me want to put a Claude Debussy record on and twirl around. We’re brainstorming a new Lookbook including these outfits. I don’t want to give away too much, but we’re thinking something French inspired focusing on the quiet moments to oneself and silent romance with the beautiful world around us.

Forest Hills | A Shop Update

These colors, the different shades of red, green, brown, and grey, are all so nostalgic to me. They are so classic Pacific Northwest. They remind me of hills covered in evergreen trees, wooden log cabins, moist forest floor, dinner out of a cast iron pan, and a warm fire. I daydream about going on a late afternoon walk and cozying up to Twin Peaks. It’s all the things I love about living in this corner of the United States and reminds me of why I continue to crave its grey skies and delicate rain.

Amid the Gusts | A Shop Update

We have more autumn pieces for you gals (including some that would be great staples) and a bit of jewelry! Often times when I sift through outfits, I like to imagine where I would go in them, and the things I would do. These definitely have a strolling by the river on a cloudy day while drinking pumpkin lattes feel. What do you see yourself doing in this collection?

Bestow A Kiss | A Shop Update

Oh how I adore vintage lingerie from the 1920s and the 1930s. The details are so sweet, so delicate, so very feminine. I always have a hard time listing vintage lingerie in the shop and I think because I get so attached to all these lovely things. I used to wear them to bed, but unfortunately tore quite a few. These delicate beauties are really just meant for lounging around in (preferably with a cocktail)…not tossing and turning in your sleep.

Emerge At Twilight | A Shop Update

Although we’re past the fall equinox and leaves are scattered on the sidewalk outside, it seems that Portland summer is still lingering around. Don’t get me wrong, I’m loving the morning and afternoon light shining through my windows and crisp sunny days. However, I am truly missing grey skies and the moody, cloudy Pacific Northwest weather I initially fell in love with. In the meantime, as we wait, here are some new things in the shop! Shady and grey tones to prep us for when Portland’s autumn decides to come into full swing.
