Ever since Adam and Eve ruined public nudity for the rest of us, with the exception of Naked Bike Ride days and non co-ed days at Löyly day spa, we’ve been forced to suffer under the oppressive yoke of clothing. Ease your agony ever so slightly by at least donning threads sourced at these exemplary Portland strongholds of good taste and exquisite fashion.
This exquisite little boutique is really well curated, and you can get Arcona face products and Comme des Garçons fragrances there too. Then go next door to Cacao and treat yourself to a drinking chocolate; just don't spill any on your new Isabel Marant sweater.
Sometimes I dream of walking up Washington Street and finding a thousand dollar bill lying in the gutter, kind of like Charlie in Willy Wonka, but instead of buying two chocolate bars with it, I'd buy two dresses at this drool-inducing boutique where absolutely everything, even the dust bunnies, is the height of effortless style.
If you want it, Radish Underground probably has it--cute dresses, funny cards, wooden crow earrings...the list goes on and on.
If you absolutely must get married, then do your dress shopping here, just the window displays alone can make your hair do a spontaneous French twist. You can walk in on weekdays but weekends are appointment only, so call before you go.
You probably just want to move in to this airy Alberta boutique, with its immaculate collection of womens’ clothing, jewelry, lingerie, books & baubles.
One of the most exceptional boutiques in town, this NW boutique showcases Betsy Cross's ethereal handcrafted jewelry alongside a collection of perfectly curated clothing, gifts and books. You'll easily find gifts here for your most discerning friends.
My favorite boutique in Portland, this perfect little shop is overseen by the lovely Anna Fickle, who has an impeccable eye for the most stylish beauty, decor and fashion finds. Don't plan on leaving empty handed, especially if you have a thing for Butter London nail polish.
A la George Clooney, I'm pretty adamant that I'll never get married again, but sometimes this ethereal shop makes me think twice. Because I want a trousseau of absolutely everything in here. A must-stop when bridal shower or (classy) bachelorette party shopping.
