We've launched! It's been a few months in the making, but the day is finally here. And this is just the beginning!
We aim to bring you quality clothing, accessories and housewares at prices even the most frugal will salute. Whether you're dressing up for drinks with friends or going casual for a bike ride around town, we've got you covered. Most of our products are made in the USA, and many in Oregon. Local design and manufacturing is something we are very passionate about supporting and we hope you are as well! We also love discovering and supporting young, up-and-coming labels, so expect new brands to appear regularly.
For our launch, we wanted to do an editorial photo shoot that captured both the beauty of Oregon and the amazing garments from one of our favorite labels, Pretty Penny Stock. That, and shooting editorial photos is always a great excuse to fill up a car with friends and head out into the wilderness. I was fortunate enough to spend the day in gorgeous Oxbow Park (just outside of Portland) with photographer and all around best mate Cara, my partner Daniel and our model, the amazing Melissa.
After a quick pit stop at Meat Cheese Bread (get the breakfast burritos!), we rolled into Oxbow Park just as the sun began peeking out of the clouds. It then promptly disappeared for the rest of the day - that's spring in Oregon after all! Of course, the silver lining was that an overcast sky gives the best light for a photo shoot! We began by scouting a few locations, and once we found one we loved we set off to reach it!
A few winding trails (and brief rain shower) later, we ended up at the top of a steep path leading down to a rocky beach on the Sandy River (by way of scaling a few fallen old growth tree trunks.) We heeded the warning signs posted at the trailhead for the 'rock people' living in 'cosmic peace' on the river bank. There must have been hundreds of rock stacks, and I'm proud to say that we didn't accidentally disrupt the 'cosmic peace' even once.
After hiking back up from the beach without losing anything to the Sandy rapids, we packed up and headed home. We left the wilderness with some great shots, plenty of laughs and enough hiking to burn off those breakfast burritos.
Enjoy a few of the outtakes from our trip, and keep checking in for more shoots that will surely be happening often!
Oh, and before I forget... of course, the clothes! On Melissa is the Penny Sweater, which is the perfect weight for spring. We paired it with the bold lines of the Penny Muse Shirt for a touch of added class. Throw on your favorite denim and you're perfectly styled for any Spring day.
