Yay! New Classic Dresses are in just in time for the holiday season.

A box just arrived from Curator full of new Classic Dresses in three colors!
-Black is always safe, flattering and easy to make more elegant.
-Lake is a deep blue that would be gorgeous with brown boots and a little blazer.

This dress is universally flattering and easy to layer for these chilly days. I picture wearing mine this Thanksgiving sitting by a cozy fire. With it's fluid a-line shape it makes for easy eating with gentle gathering that hides a full belly, gotta love that!

Saturday's Trunk Show

We are gearing up for a jewelry trunk show for local designer Loulu jewelry. Stop by Saturday the 10th from 6-9pm to see Loulu's new fall collection of sparkles. For fall she took some inspiration from Victorian era necklaces and lockets. Using gold, antiqued, and oxidized silver chain and charms mixed with antique glass beads and semi precious stones including garnet, mystic quartz, amethyst, pyrite and smokey quartz, she gives a little life to last years fall staples. If you need a little something that glitters to get you through the fall days ahead come treat yourself.

We love the delicate layered chain with tiny stones on this necklace by Loulu.

Also for artwalk Saturday we feature Portland photographer Misha Ashton's new carnival series. They look vintage but are taken on a 35mm camera and altered in the process, yet printed without using photoshop.
