After talking about borrowing new and shiny couture jewels and clutches let's chat about one of a kind, beautiful and vintage. Brooches are popping up everywhere; on shoes, in the hair, attached to sashes or simply pinned to your gown. They are an easy and chic way to add a touch of vintage to your wedding day. Check out Decades Vintage 328 SE Stark St. They have a good sampling on their website but head into the store to find more treasures. They do a great job describing different designers and the year their work was prominent on their site.
The hunt to find that perfect vintage piece is part of the fun. Grab your girls and take an afternoon to hit some of our local shops. Try Lived in Lover on 3619 SE Division St. Then head on over to Gilt on 720 NW 23rd Ave. This is the spot for a large selection of antique and vintage accessories for men and women. While you're shopping for yourself pick up a pair of cuff links for your man.
Check out Shop Vintage Portland, a great local blog, to find the latest info on sales and all the hidden spots to find your one of a kind piece.
