I love reading and checking in with Miss Moss blog for the exact reason she has shown here - all the A/W trends in simple categories (aka all the hard work done for me!) These are a few of my favourites and what i'll be looking out for when out thrifting in the next few months...wish me luck ;)

UZI NYC


So excited that we are now a stockiest of UZI!  There's no going wrong with their graphic screen prints, boxy fits, and neutral color tones.  The Brooklyn duo behind Uzi definitely created a line of practical and easy to wear clothing that is unique and stands apart from the rest. 

Initially it was the light weight, breezy texture of the woven cotton which drew me in... and then I realized that the boxy fit is just as amazing as the texture.  Plus, I can't forget about the prints!  

Our first shipment of color block dresses sold within one day - can't wait for our second batch of tanks due in this Friday!  …Until then, we'll just have to drool over these photos.

What I Love Right Now : Gamma Folk

Hooray! A jewelry line that makes me want one of every kind! I think all of our Portland customers would agree, seeing as we are nearly sold out!! Don't sweat it online custies - there's a new shipment on the way and you can buy them in-store or online

What's so special about Gamma Folk? They are simple yet bold statement pieces made of all natural cotton fiber dyed with things like organic indigo, matter root, black walnut, and avocado skin. Truly handmade in Brooklyn New York by Lily Piyathaisere and her commitment to the "preservation of craft". I am looking forward to many more great pieces Lily!

Falconwright


If you aren't already familiar with Falconwright, let us be the first to introduce you!  Sandi and Danielle are the creative masterminds behind Falconwright - two rad friends who came together to make quirky and crazy screen prints for every day leather bags and clutches.  

If you have ever stepped foot in our storefront or perused our site, it is very apparent that we are quite obsessed... So much so that we based an entire lookbook around their rad eyeball print bags.




























I love the concept of a simple zipper pouch bag with bold colors and loud, original designs.  These gals have got it figured out!  Can't wait to see what they come up with next :)  You should definitely take a peek at their ridiculously cute site while you're at it!

xx,
Colleen

Quay Sunnies

So I hate to admit it but I love knowing whats going on in Hollywood now and again. I read the tabloids from the corner of my eye when I check out at the grocery store. Even worse, if the headlines are juicy enough I can't help but buy them. I have also endlessly searched for a 'SONO MAMA' Philip Lim sweater on eBay just because Beyonce wore it (once).  And I have been known to veg out watching Mob Wives or any wives show VH1 throws my way for that matter - embarrassing I know.

Anyway, my newest celebrity obsession is who's wearing Quay sunnies because we just started carrying them at the shop. All mega babes from Cara Delevingne to MIA to Iggy Azalea. Oh and of course Gwen and Beyonce are rockin' them, always ahead of the curve those two.  Which pair do you have to have?

Get yours in store or online at yovintage.com
