Red Heart Cult Addict In the Spirit of Halloween season, I thought it would be the perfect time to introduce one of my favorite, fellow designers. Leila Marvel is a character in her own well directed movie of a sort of melancholy Alice and Wonderland, romantic tragedy. This lovely and talented designer has a way of making her pieces so feminine and unique, with a hint of Victorian cupcake goth. Here are some of my favorites available on etsy now, http://www.etsy.com/shop/redheart13 Here is the official bio for this interesting artist, "Hello, it is nice to meet you. In a world of masquerading romantic tragedy, holds places of splendid melancholy, a world filled with vampires and dark stories created through relics and one-of-a-kind jewelry. I introduce to you, the Red Heart Cult™; inspired by the Victorian way of life, classic romance, seduction and lastly the human soul. I find much inspiration for my jewelry from fairy tales, mourning, vampires, Andre Vesalius and my beloved grandmother's attic. I am an advocate collector of things, including holy water fonts, antique crucifixes, religious statues. I cherish the finer things in life like jumping on the bed and visiting cemeteries. Some more of my pics from the etsy shop, So inspiring! Don't forget to check out her amazing blog as well, where she holds contests, announces other inspiring happenings and shares her world! http://redheartcult.blogspot.com/ Cheers!

A Party You Must Attend

I hope your going to this amazing event in Portland,tommorrow night, in case you haven't heard, it is a must. I wish I could be there, but my jewelry will be featured by Narcisse! Thanks so much you guys! Here is a copy of the info from their website, www.shopnarcisse.typepad.com. "We have been invited to help launch the grand opening of the very cool indigo @ twelve west apartment building in downtown Portland. finally someone is putting us where we belong, on a 23 story high pedestal. the party is being held in the indigo's very posh penthouse space. this building is sure to be the keystone in the bridge from the pearl to the west end. i think it is just what our little neighborhood needs. there will be retail and dining on the bottom floors and hundreds of gorgeous apartments with floor to ceiling windows above. we are so excited to watch this new phase of the west end bring the area full circle."--Narcisse

New Fall Line by Brehan Todd at Narcisse

I am so excited to announce my new line of fall designs at Narcisse in Portland, Oregon! Narcisse, is a relatively new shop that I've blogged about in the past and is recently gaining a lot of attention for it's unique art direction. It's the only shop to carry the label, Noa Noa from Denmark and recently began stocking beautiful handmade corsets by Paloma Soledad. I happen to have the privilege of working with the lovely owners, Dawn Bush and Heidi Goldsmith, who have a talent for making you feel like your crawling into an old novel with a cup of tea and some cakes, on a rainy afternoon. I just love that feeling, so I was drawn to the shop one day and now, we have ourselves a soul mate connection, folks! We just really see eye to eye on what's cute and pretty and makes us feel like we are the heroine in our own movie, our life! If you haven't gone to the shops on Southwest Washinton, this one alone is worth the stop, but luckily there are lots of other charming businesses nearby. In the meanwhile, here are some of the new collection for Narcisse,
