There are so many vintage shops in Portland (shhhhhhh) but one of my favorites has to be Xtabay. I've bought a couple of 'keepers' from them - one being my full length gold sequin wedding dress (I actually wore about four wedding dresses in total but this one was particularly amazing...) Liz sells proper vintage, as in proper stunning vintage clothing. The shop is gorgeous, the staff are lovely and the clothes are heaven. They've just recently opened a very special Bridal Boutique brimming with white wonders - just like the incredible dresses featured in their Maypole Brides Lookbook* above. Portland! Brides to be everywhere! You HAVE to make an appointment here first...

*OMG! How amazing is their lookbook? SO inspiring, SO amazing, SO dreamy! WOW-ZER photography by Holly AndresWardrobe and styling by Liz Gross/XtabayHair and Makeup by Terri LodgeFlowers provided by Fieldwork.

Things I saw* and liked at New York fashion week. Sparkly shoes (still), denim jackets UNDER fur coats, leopard prints - still happening (phew), that bubble shape/silhouettes - happening lots at the recent Stella McCartney show too, ANKLE SOCKS, those tones together, the distressed brown leather shorts. 

*saw online, maybe I'll gatecrash the NY streets next year....

I want to start using headscarfs all the time. And plait my hair. And use gold things. And dye it pink. All of the above in one please. Thanks!
