Pop Up Shopping! | November 25, 2009

So I heard there were a couple of Pop Up Boutiques that just POPPED up downtown and the thought I’d go check’em out for you.

FLURRY-Corner of SW4th and Morrison

What a great space man. Open and light and bright.  They had like 50 dressing rooms to try things on too!

WeMa Wool Trouser $172

These wool pants were FANTASTIC!  They had the most beautiful drape and were so comfortable without looking comfortable with the lycra band at the waist.  UGH LOVED! They have this stitching detail on them too that makes them a true work of art.


Varnish Clothing $205

I always love LBD’s that aren’t LBD’s. I mean what’s more boring than a black dress when you can get away with a MIDNIGHT NAVY dress like this one!  The cut, the shape, PERFECT for most any body type and so well priced.  A dress this well made can easily set you back a Benjamin or two more.

Varnish Clothing Coat $350

Show stopper jacket! This would so stand out in the sea of black Columbia ‘slickers’ on the streets of Portland.  Well crafted.  It’s just like wearing art people!

Maytee Skirt $290

This is one of the reason you shop at boutiques.  To find those pieces that NOBODY has.  Pieces that are statement making, conversation starting, compliment receiving pieces!  When you find that/those piece(s) then you splurge and that’s just what the skirt is worth.  A splurge.


Sahlia Michelle Earrings $90

Just about the leave the store when I spot Sahlia (gorg name) Michelle’s lovely but not too lovely jewelry.  It’s feminine but still a little tough around the edges.  You’ve got to check more of her jewelry out.  These are wear-em-everyday pieces.


Off to WORKROOM719 just up the street on Morrison across from Nordstrom

Charles & Victoria

First of all the designer Rachel Ancliffe greets you with a very warm hello as your struck by a wonderful aroma. Really! It smells so great in this little Pop Up Boutique!

Rachel is ready for her next line to come to life which is represented in the STEALS you can score of her product!  This designer gets a woman’s body and reflects that in the cut of her silhouettes as well as simply offering her sizes up to a 14.  hallelujah sista!

Charles & Victoria Dress $125

Ok originally $498 this dress is being given away at $125!  Can’t you see this dress with black tuxedo jacket, some grey tights and black booties? Or with T neck underneath and a denim jacket over with your favorite pair of Frye Boots (As I would wear it;))  You can make this dress work for now and later.

Charles & Victoria Pant $99

These pants were originally over $300 and Rachel is selling them now for $99.  Seriously giving her stuff away! These have the coolest feature too.  There are zipper that go up part of the leg in the front.  Super rock’n roll without being so overt.

Charles & Victoria Tuxedo Pant $106

Can’t you just see the legend Katherine Hepburn wearing these! Ugh I melt all over them!  Originally $425 now just $106.

Also at WORKROOM719: Designer Scarlet Chamberlain http://www.sforscarlet.com

Scarlet is truly a jewelry designer.  She has such a passion for creating unique and beautiful pieces made with the most thoughtful gems, metals and stones.  Every piece is one you’ll adore for a lifetime!

Scarlet Necklace $195

This piece was so well thought.  The green with the brass. So original.  Also you can adjust the necklace to be high on your neck for a bib necklace effect or lower to decorate your decollete.  Genius!

About author

If you're familiar with the TV show "What Not to Wear," you're familiar with what kind of services I offer. I understand that fashion and style needs to be comfortable and fit you and your lifestyle, not the other way around. You shouldn’t be categorized as building block or a piece of fruit. What I've learned over my 17 years in the industry is that every body is unique and individual, and so are your needs. What may work for one person may not for you. As a Wardrobe Stylist, I offer guidance and instruction on how to use silhouette, construction and fabrication to accentuate your positives and camouflage, well, the areas you may not love. I can also just take away all the worry and bother of doing any shopping and I can bring the stores to you. It's my goal to help you in any way I can to have the most efficient, flattering and stylish wardrobe for you.
