I’ve just spent the last week drenched in fashion.
After a summer filled with the bare necessities, it was such a treat.

Actually, let’s be clear: drenched in re-sale fashion.

I spent the week in Portland, Oregon
at a Summit  of the Association for Resale Innovation,
a meeting of the industry leaders of the pre-loved clothing business.
It was amazing.
Progressive. Creative. Intelligent.

I am exceptionally excited for my next venture in life back into the re-sale clothing world.
In November, Second Glance will open it’s first Men’s clothing store: The Alley.
I encourage you to join myself and new faces at launch party events.
I will fill you in with the details later.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

There are two items which I am dying to share with you, which I very recently was made aware of:

1. Urban Outfitter’s Vintage Embroidered Cord Jacket

Fall Fashion

I believe that every man, woman, and child needs this item for their fall wardrobe.
For a mere $189 you are purchasing history.
This is resale fashion at its finest.
This recessionista is on board with the vintage-american look that UO has captured.
Cheers to them.

2. Campaign for Wool: Sheepish

Sheer genius? Entirely!
I adore everything about this Harrod’s sponsored video & concept.
Sheep are probably one of my favorite animals, and fashion my favorite hobby.
What a serendipitous match.

I was literally overjoyed when I heard Oregon designer Amanda Grisham,
(the emerging designer of Portland fashion week 2011),
explain that Pendleton brand wool is all the rage this fall & winter season.

Make sure to include wool in your fall and winter wardrobes.

{flavors of fall: part II}

Standard

Have you fallen in love with fall, yet?
I did, this weekend.

Somewhere between my sips of sweet-salted goodness,
my crochet headband,
and smiling faces at the local homecoming festivities,
I realized that colder weather often means warmer hearts.
{Awww.}
And quite possibly–larger stomachs.
But to be honest, those buns aren’t going to warm themselves.

So, without further a due,
I’ve painstakingly brought you my favorite sips & slurps
for the wonderful autumn season.
Enjoy.

Starbucks Salted Caramel Mocha

Dairy Queen's Pumpkin Pie Blizzard

Deschutes Brewery Seasonal Jubelale

Hot Toddy - The Ultimate Cure for a Cold

Curried Butternut Squash Soup - yum!

There’s more where that came from.
