Join the fan club this weekend at her annual sale, which starts tomorrow both online and at her Fremont boutique. Her gorgeous hand-crafted pieces are marked up to 50% off. Snap up your favorite pieces quickly—there’ll be a line I’m sure given that heather earrings below are going for just $82.
Great news for lofty gents who drown in traditional “big n’ tall” apparel: Queen Anne resident tall guy Mark Tindall and team launched Longshot Apparel this month, featuring slim-fit, long shirts. Their first classic, cotton button-down style (more to come) comes in 8 different sizes according torso length, with a tailored lean cut developed for heights between 6’2’ to 6’ 8”. Order online here.
Not only is R&L Goods’ new wrap-around scarf simply chic and cute, the back story is meet-cute as well: In 2008, friends Jean Lee and Chika Eustace (formerly co-owners of Chikabird design biz) pooled their resources to buy a Ballard duplex and along with their husbands created a design studio in their shared basement. Click here to read about their backyard garden, and darling little haven. Now the fearsome foursome works together to create fabric-covered notebooks, cozy sweaters with hand-stitched designs, as well as the darling linen scarf above. Created with NYC-based Piano Nobile’s printed textiles, this just screams, “Spring! It’s coming!”. Get it here and get out and enjoy the weekend!
