There are lots of beautiful new things in the shop! We’re excited to slowly share it all with you! We have so much to list, so stay tuned, and for now, here’s a shop update!

Vintage Shop Update | Path To Soubise

It’s 60 degrees fahrenheit here in Portland, and we had a hard time coming in the studio to work instead of frolicking around in fields. Instead, we had a short picnic at the park next to the studio, so we can give you a shop update! Filled with some lingerie, both vintage and modern, and dresses!

Dutch Masters Inspired Shoot with Wildwood Floral

OHminilookbook

A couple weeks ago we got together with our friend Megan Jacob, owner and designer of Wildwood Floral Studio, and photographed her wearing some of our edwardian style pieces and a floral arrangement she designed. Collaborating with friends is always such a treat. We get to catch up amongst doing work we love to do. There is truly nothing better.

Inspired by Dutch still life paintings, it was so serendipitous that the day we decided on, Portland delivered the soft and moody light we love so much. It brings the exact lighting and rich color that is so perfect in Dutch paintings. The prior few days we kept having clear skied, sunny days. I know I can’t complain about a beautiful blue sky, but it doesn’t translate the same as an overcast day.

We did get a late start, and as we raced the sunset, buttoning the millions of buttons and clasping the millions of clasps on a couple of these beautiful Edwardian pieces, we found that the light just got better and better. Did you know that the more difficult it is to get in a dress, the more wealthier the gal who originally owned it was? It means she had to be wealthy enough to have help in order to get dressed in the morning. Can you imagine that? However, although difficult to get on, the look of clasps and buttons are so much more elegant than a zipper.

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.
