A day spent out of the office is always an adventure! Recently we had our fall/winter photoshoot and adventure is one way to describe it....along with artistic, first foggy then scorching, a wee bit dusty and definitely full of bubbles and confetti! 

We picked one of our favorite neighborhoods on Portland's Eastside -- favorite because of the amazing local businesses, great street settings and artistic building art.  We hope you enjoy this season's fashions and accessories -- new collection of sunnies from Italia Independent, cozy sweaters exclusively for E+R by gwynedds, knits from Munich based designer Hannes Roether and super fuzzy beanies by WarmME and also by Italian hat designer Reinhard Plank

Come along with us on our #fashionadventure!

One of the best things about traveling is meeting SO many new people - and hearing So many new and amazing stories. We don't like to be "sold" a product - we want to be sold on a story!

Handwoven LeJu bracelets from Bogota

So this July when in Berlin at PREMIUM tradeshow we LOVED meeting Juan. Juan is one of the owners at LeJu Designs. Juan and his business partner Lenny were inspired to start designing jewelery during Lennys travels in South America where she spent one year visiting different countries and collecting materials, learning different techniques from artisans she met in different places.  So when it came time to set up LeJu Designs - Lenny and Juan swapped continents -Lenny being the designer and from Holland and Juan managing the brand sales and customer relations and originally from Colombia. 

Today each of these beautiful bracelets are handwoven in their workshop in Bogota (Colombia). Both of us have worn these bracelets NON-STOP since getting them in July and we have showered, we swam, cleaned, hiked, ran…… in them without ever taking them off. And they are still as beautiful as they were on the first day!
