I recently had the pleasure of meeting the lovely + fashion forward Kay Lynn Bridges who is the designer and founder of Kae West. Her work will take you through the dreamscape of playful imagination and self-expression while breaking ties of the mundane and predictable. Not only does her beauty + style reflect in her unique pieces, but so does her airy and inspirational influences. Check out her latest and greatest at

One weekend I was doing the traditional Saturday afternoon run of errands to fulfill my to-do list. In the midst of hopping from one place to the next, I couldn’t help but notice a $1 sidewalk sale of all things vintage. As Portland is notorious for their fabulous thrift finds, the Hollywood Lux Vintage shop is one that stands out above the rest. Not only are their hand picked selection of apparel, local vendors of kitschy jewelry, + accessories, and home decor. Above all else the owner of the shop is one person everyone should have a pleasure to meet which always makes a difference when having the ultimate shopping experience. Make sure if you are hanging around the Hollywood District swing by the shop and pick up a fabulous find for yourself. For more information on the shop visit their site at Hollywood Lux.
