sweet find.

("peachy keen" dress $310...perfect for a summer wedding)
I've been coveting something...anything from Sarah Seven for months. I'm sure some of you MUST remember my Christmas list? Today I ran across some of her Spring collection and fell deeper in love. With a deep desire for the romance and the simple decadence of a bygone era of femininity, Portland, Oregon designer, Sarah Seven is able to create unique pieces that are vintage inspired but decidingly modern. Her collections are a rare glimpse into the perfected and intricate arrangement of blossoming ruffles, delicate fabrics, and flowing layers. A true Portlander at heart, Sarah Seven uses natural fabrics, silk, wool, linens, cotton voile as well as recycled vintage fabrics.
("powdered sugar" dress $375...perfect for drinks & dinner)

("mayflower" dress $195...afternoon tea at the Queen Mary?)

("a peaceful afternoon" dress $515...eating cake on the banks of the Seine?)

Spring Cleaning Sale at Sweet Petula

One of the most surprising things about the new Pioneer Square Sweet Petula is the amount of MALE customers we get. It is weird. About 75% of our daily visitors are male now. Of course we love it...I mean boys should smell nice too right? And our customer based has doubled.

But...we have a lot of pj's & frilly underthings left over from our "girl's only" days..and it is freaking them out. They are confused and slighly uncomfortable...like a deer caught in headlights. So I'm clearing it all out. Beginning today, PJ's & Loungewear is 40% off.

"Hand" Soap by Foliage $18.00

I ordered some of this handsoap as a gift for my brother this Christmas. They come packaged in sets and smell really fresh. I decided to keep them for myself. They kindof creeped out my boyfriend. And that amused me.

These little handsoaps come packaged in a cute little ribbon bag and can be bought here.

happiest new home....

Happiest new home....for me!

Hey everyone, I've been busy moving. I have a super cute new pad & I plan on posting some of my finished decorating pictures soon. One of my lovely friends, Kristine of Flourish brought me a little housewarming gift which included a little book called, "Fortune-Telling Book of Dreams". The first night I slept in my new place, I had a dream that included a huge closet full of shoes, a super sexy man on my arm & a doorman. Currently, my apartment comes with none of these things...but according to my new book I am going to actulize my goals in my positive change of circumstance...with a super sexy man on my arm.

Sounds good to me!
