notiare in the air

My pretty little scarf line, Notaire, is out in the world and i have been overwhelmed with the kind words and positive responce it is getting.
look for Notaire at una
If you are in the Portland area you must stop into Una. 
It is a magical boutique run by the Giovanna, who just happens to be the sweetest, prettiest, and most creative shop owner around. she
seems to carry the lines that everyone is talking about, but before anyone else knows to talk about them. 
my favorites are; a detacher, erica tanov, crea, rodebjer, mata...and many others
kind words from Giovanna, owner of una regarding Notaire~

"notaire is a new lil' venture from local stylist and all around sweet lady,
they are made from the yummiest cotton flannel (it feels like cashmere)
and they come in two sizes-
half yard wide by 2 yards long in peche, pinot and ciment
1 yard wide by 2 yards long in peche and ciment."-G. from Una

secondly, new online boutique summerland is now open!
This darling online heaven is going to be stocking Notaire as well!
The creative mind behind this cyber shop is Megan, who has an eye for both new and vintage peices that are difficult to locate elsewhere.
I must admit when Megan told me she was going to be opening a shop online I was 100% sold on her success.
i mean, she carries Karen Walker-Aussie super star! 
So do pop over to summerland to see what all the fuss is about. 
Lastly, thanks to honey kennedy
for the kind mention on her beautiful blog. Here are the sweet things she had to say on the matter.

"Beautiful cotton flannel scarves from Notaire, a new label from amazing Portland wardrobe stylist, Sarah Van Raden. I love Sarah’s names for her muted tones in this collection: PĂȘche, Pinot, Fleur de Sel, Ciment, Granite and Autumn. The scarves come in two sizes and are available now at Una in Portland–the ladies there swear they are so soft that they feel just like cashmere. Sarah’s scarves will also be available online in a matter of hours at new online boutique, Summerland, when they open for business." ~ Honey Kennedy

uh, wow

zara men, fall 2010
if men dressed like this...

street love

oh the love for Sasha P. is great!
she is such a little impish doll with a penchant for incredible style and the eye of an artist. 
i love these shots of her

  a few more goodies from Stockholm Street Style
i love this long skirt! I bought a similar one the other day at goodwill, and it was a total score at $8.99, Max Mara - made of silk and cashmere. 
now if only i could convince my sweet man that floor length, non-fitted skirts are sexy...
it is the most comfortable trend around!
