Goodbye, Mayle

The pop-up shop is closed, the alleged sample-sale-to-end-all-sample-sales a passing memory, and the storefront will shut its doors for the final time in three wee days. Le sigh.

April Showers

source: The Sartorialist

It was sunny and 80 degrees for the first three days of the week. Then, out of nowhere, the temperature dipped nearly 30 degrees. The wind followed, then the rain. This is how I felt the remainder of the week, as I traipsed around the city ... well, without the chic black clothes, high heels, and the Parisian background. You get the idea.

Pretty As A Picture

I love designer videos, like this one with Alison Lewis of Lewis-fame.

Pretty as a Picture Show

(Yeah, that's a link. If someone with more tech-savvy than I knows how to actually post the video, do enlight me. Please.)

And Then There Was One: Rachel Comey Shape Belt

We've got one left in stock, a size Medium, in whiskey, on sale for $98.00 ... a pretty good bargain, if you ask me.

ALSO, new Rachel Comey belts (shaped, double-buckle, and all with crochet goodness) are coming in soon!!!

UPDATE: Nevermind. Sold.

Happy Feet (Or: My Obsession with Tassels)

About two years ago, I fell in love--the kind of head-over-heels love--for a pair of wooden soled Rachel Comeys with shingle detailing. I was obsessed! I wanted them in both the cream color and tan brown. I wanted the wedge version and the heel version. I wanted them all. Unfortunately, so did everyone else: I managed to land only one pair, which my friends dubbed as my "shingle shoes." Oh, are they great!

When I peered at the linesheet for Spring/Summer 2009, I found something as adorable as those shingle shoes of seasons past. My heart stopped! Tassels! And could I call that a pseudo-shingle? We have two styles to choose from because, if you're anything like me, you will want both versions. Just don't dawdle as long as I did.

(By the way, I must say that the construction on the Rachel Comey shoes has become increasingly better with each subsequent season. This season's shoes are truly special.)

And Then There Was One: Mociun Dress

I thought we sold out of this dress, but, as it turns out, there is ONE left in a size Medium. My sister owns this dress and wore it during her recent visit to Portland! It has a super flattering fit and runs true to size. I'll post it back on the site this week! Who will be the lucky girl?

P.S. Some of you may have heard that we had a bit of a website issue last month. For the most part, it is fixed, but we are working on ironing out a few kinks. Thank you for all your patience!

Fancy Pants (Err ... Shorts)

These washed silk, high-waisted tap shorts by Lewis (Alison Lewis) will soon replace their denim/cotton counterparts. I feel very grown up, indeed. And, true to her Mooka Kinney roots, Alison Lewis adorned these tap shorts in cute button detailing.

Rachel Comey Shoe Heaven

From left to right: Sing Sing, Lorimer, Bergen.
(We love Rachel Comey!)

Spring Staple

Could this Alison Lewis tank be my staple for spring/summer season? With its silk print and low back, I think it just may be! Also, the low back on this top is surprisingly comfortable: it has a touch of elastic to keep it snug.

UPDATE: Another picture of the low back & with the Lewis tap shorts, also in stock! Some of you have asked if the straps are adjustable. They are to the extent that they can be moved closer to each other, as in this picture.

Spring Has Sprung!

The sun is out this weekend, and it is gorgeous and warm. Portland feels like an entirely new city when this happens.

New in store: Mociun, Rachel Comey, Margarita Saplala, and Alison Lewis!
