Stevie here, with one for the style rookies. Perhaps you recall our epic Back To School, Teen Styling Package Giveaway, and now you’re reminded that you didn’t win. But it’s okay! Although I cannot be there to Crush your closet personally and draw up your prioritized shopping list, I have however, hand picked a few of my favorite spots brimming with all kinds of Fall essentials to get your back to school wardrobe off to a good start. If you’re in Portland, count out that summer job, cash-stash and get your girls together for a day of shopping that goes a little something like this…
Backtalk: One of a kind vintage pieces as well as some local designer duds. They also carry a variety of shades of my favorite lipstick, Portland Black Lipstick Co.!
Solestruck: Having just undergone a total store revamp, their showroom now offers a virtual shopping experience with more shoes to feast your eyes on than ever. Plus, they’re constantly playing dress-up in here. Inspiration overload!
Mojave: Right next door to Solestruck, this little gem is chock full of the cool silhouettes and unique designs you find yourself constantly reblogging on tumblr.
Sloan: This one is great if you’re shopping with ladies of all ages, (i.e. Older Sis, or Mom). Accessories, shoes, and apparel for all ages and sizes!
Buffalo Exchange: While I’m partial to the Hawthorne location, a Buffalo Exchange is a Buffalo Exchange if you know what I mean. A great place to trade in your old for some new, or make a little cash back to put toward a more thoughtful investment in your closet. Buy, sell, trade- what could be better!
P.S. The Teen Styling Package wasn’t just for giveaway! We’re officially launching this exciting new service come September! Clue your ‘rents in on your updated wish-list, “One Sweet 16 Styling Package, please!”
