Mad About Plaid ’17

It is that time of year when we switch over our shop for fall. To get ready, I put together our annual ‘Mad About Plaid’ editorial shoot. This was such a fun day. Our team was incredible! Amazing ladies hair and make-up by Kristen Johnson and men’s hair by Garret Olmstead. Got to work with three of my favorite models; Brittney, Suzy and Chris along with photographer Mike Helms of Totally Captivating. If you are going to do a 50’s themed shoot you have to have classic cars! Special thanks to Ron Wade for his stunning collection that will be become a museum in Vancouver WA soon and Susie who arranged the use of all the cars. The complete set of photos from our shoot will be on our site the end of August.
I get very excited for this season with fall being my favorite time of year. The smells, colors, patches of fog, Canadian geese honking as they fly south and the clothing. Oh…. the clothing. layers of beautiful wool colors, textures and patterns, sweaters knit with all kinds of fibers, fur and faux fur coats, hats and collars, leather and suede and COATS.
I have never been more excited for this event! Our fall collection is the best in seven years. We have had to move to off-site storage just to hold it all! Over 1200 pieces will be added to the shop which includes over 300 coats for you to choose from.

There are so many great restuarants doing brunch, lunch and dinner around us if you are wanting to fill your day. Our farmers market will be open 2 blocks away from us, 10am-3pm. Over 150 local vendors!
Parking (free street parking on the weekend) is slim so make sure to allow time to find a spot.
