Spring is here and it’s time to give that Little Black Dress (LBD) some colorful competition. Here are my choices for boutiques on the west side where you can spring into something vibrant and pretty and send that LBD to the back of your closet.
Trendy items for both men & women and all reasonably priced. If you can't find a new dress to strut your stuff in, you'll easily find a new bauble to adorn your finger. The staff is always smiling and the inventory is always changing.
This is a store both myself & my mom can easily walk out with something we love. They even allow you to create wish lists for yourself in case you want to direct someone to something you really want! The staff is always friendly.
When I walk in Sloan I know I'll walk out with an outfit I love! Shoes, tights, accessories & racks of wearable & affordable clothes.
For a dress that's memorable as well as comfortable, stop in Physical Element. Local & international designs.
Unique, super stylish and very wearable skirts, dresses and accessories. The staff is always friendly and willing to help piece together an outfit that's flattering & comfortable for your taste.
Some people may buy a pint of Ben & Jerry's when they are having a tough day, I take a spin through Mabel & Zora to cheer me up. Warning: although it's less calories than Ben & Jerry's it can also make your wallet skinnier too! It's a great shop whether you are buying, browsing or brooding over a hard day.
Mostly local and all independent designers. Unique pieces like cuff-links, money clips and bangles from recycled skateboard decks. Wine barrel turned coat racks, recycled bicycle tires turned into wallets. Cards that are hilariously blunt. Clothes that are wearable and fashionable for our city and it's unpredictable weather.
Portland designer Sarah Bibb makes unique and wearable fashions that won't break your budget. Known for her OBI belts and reversible wrap skirts, this boutique in NW will keep you fashionably dressed.
Portland designed & sewn dresses, jackets, pants & all sorts of pretties! Dress too long or slightly off fitting...No worries when you shop here, slip it on & they'll pin it to fit your body perfectly & make the alterations for free.
