Let Us Guide You: Keeping It Local

Only 20 days till Christmas ya’ll! We’re back again for the 3rd day of our week of holiday gift guides and we’ve decided to keep it local with these ideas since we just LOVE everything about the great Pacific Northwest! So here we go!

 Let Us Guide You: Keeping It Local

1. Not only is this Betsy & Iya Fremont Bridge Cuff handmade in Portland (like all Besty & Iya jewelry) but it gets its moniker and design from a local bridge.

Along with the St. John’s Bridge cuff, these Betsy & Iya bracelets make great gifts for any proud Portlandian, as well as a great gift for those out-of-state who like their jewelry unique and with a meaning behind it.

2. Will Leather Goods hails from Eugene, Oregon (Go Ducks!) and is responsible for producing some of the highest quality leather accessories around.

The Will Leather Goods La Manta Mini Messenger meets the exceedingly high standards the brand puts before itself, and manages to be adorable doing so!

3. Coming to us from Oregon’s northern neighbor, Washington, Mishakaudi is one of the newest additions to our lovely family of Pacific Northwest brands. Filled with necklaces, earrings and bracelets mostly made of brushed brass, Mishakaudi jewelry is edgy with a tribal feel that can be worn for virtually any occasion.

This Mishakaudi Honora Necklace is a great statement piece that can be paired with a great LBD or worn casual with some skinny jeans and a simple white tee. The fashionista in your life will definitely be able to rock it multiple times.

4. Handmade in Portland, Ms. Wood clothing and accessories are made from 90% organic eco-friendly fabrics and materials whenever possible, and produce items in small, exclusive batches. Because of this “the consumer isn’t going to have several people wearing the Ms. Wood brand”

We love the Ms. Wood Nori Cardigan, which is a comfy kimono sleeved cardi that ties around the waist for a nice hourglass shape. Paired here with our Ms. Wood Obi Belt, this will make a luxurious gift for any gal.

Taking into consideration the curves of a women’s body, Alyson Clair has managed to produce garments that can be worn today, but have a touch of vintage feel.

Pretty much all of our Clair Vintage dresses would make great gifts, but we especially like this Clair Vintage Purple Glitter Tank Dress because of it’s fun graphic pattern and pretty purples.
