OOTD: Peruvian Princess.

Posted by Anna

One part “Warrior Two,” one part South American royalty, this outfit is truly fitting of who Betsy is: a strong, regal woman with a playful personality. A dress with this much pizzaz doesn’t need many additional accessories, and Betsy’s choices – a statement necklace, dangling earrings, and a simple, waist-defining belt – enhance the dress without competing with it for attention (because this dress will win, always).

Detail shots, because that’s what we’re all about. The Gotland necklace in the Portland colorway is the perfect modern piece to pair with this vintage dress. Securing Betsy’s signature top knot is a hairpin by her friend & fellow talented jeweler, Teresa from Tiro Tiro.

betsy & iya Personal Stylist: The Good Scarf.

Posted by Ashley Viberg

The colder days are upon us and it’s time to layer up; here’s one accessory you won’t want to be without.

Whether you are a minimalist or an accessory junkie, the versatility of the Good Scarf by good hYOUman makes it a wardrobe essential.

Scarves are an ongoing trend and and always seem to make an outfit. Might I add that they aren’t  just for the sake of style but have a purpose, to keep you warm. The Good Scarf in particular is awesome because it keeps you cozy without adding bulk. If you are not a fashion enthusiast, it still looks great when its wrapped up and looks a bit unkempt.

 There’s nothing not to love about this scarf: it’s unisex, extremely soft (50% cotton and 50% modal), and you can pretty much wrap it any way your heart desires.

The Good Scarf is $32 and comes in these sophisticated colors for fall: black, deep plum, cilantro, midnight, storm, & cloud (not pictured).

I know for myself the hardest part will be deciding which color. If you know me, it’s probably more like which two colors.

xo,

Ashley

Bring it, Fall (Part 2).

Posted by Anna

In Bring it Fall, Part 1 I shared a sure sign of the impending fall season in our corner of NW Portland, spiced tea. Now that we’re 1/2 way through October (what the what?), another sign of the times has crept in our kitchen cabinets. Ladies & gentleman, Wellness Pills!

We’ll be doling out these bad boys like candy from now until May. I expect a call about an endorsement deal any day…

Be well,

Anna

OOTD: On the Move.

Posted by Anna

All I gotta say about this first photo is “outta the way, I got biz to conduct!” This is how I’d like to always imagine myself: walking with purpose, determined face, and in a super comfortable dress that’s pretty much like wearing a giant black T-shirt.

I like this dress so much I bought two of them knowing it’ll be a perennial staple in my wardrobe for many seasons to come. I love wearing black because it’s the perfect canvas to showcase what really matters: JEWELRY. The turquoise handlet I’m wearing is in my top 5 favorite pieces of all time (side note: why doesn’t spell check recognize “handlet” as a word??). I spotted it in an antique store in Noblesville, IN over Christmas last year and didn’t purchase it right away. Mistake! I couldn’t stop thinking about it after I returned to Portland so I enlisted my beloved mother (hi, MJR!) to go back and get it for me, with the agreement I’d make payments on it. Which I’m pretty sure I’m past due on, so I better sign off and get to my checkbook…
