Sunday afternoon Sam and I took advantage of the sunny weather and wandered around Portland for a while. We went to Buffalo Exchange, and not only was my favorite employee working, but someone who reads my blog recognized me!
Anyone remember the striped sweater with shoulder ruffles I posted about on Facebook a few months ago? It was on someone's blog, which of course I've lost the link to. I wanted it so bad, but it was an H&M sweater, not much chance of finding it months later. Well, I found it. What are the chances? And in my size. The style goddesses were with me.
Photos to come soon I'm sure!
We then walked to Pok Pok and had a fantastic lunch. And drinks. I really want more of that soup...
After that we walked to Xtabay, just so I could bask in the glory that is wall to wall perfect vintage. The real stuff, no digging through 90s dresses to get to the 40s novelty prints. They're just right there. Waiting for you.
Then we waked back to the Pok Pok whisky bar right across from the restaurant, and had drinks and dessert. And a pretty doggie wanted Sams food...
This skirt is something I wore for the first time. I found it in pieces at an estate sale, like the skirt and waistband had been separated, and never stitched back together. So I cut some inches off the top (it was awkwardly long), put on the waistband, and used the leftover piece to make a matching headscarf/turban.
