Chic doggie styles at P-town’s Pet Fashion Week

OK yes it’s true. You have missed Boutiques Unleashed the fun fun fundraiser for DoveLewis Animal Hospital Pet Loss Support Group. Local human and doggy types strut their stuff down the fashion runway for Portland’s Pet Fashion Week. It was last night at the Wonder Ballroom. Heard it was a blast as usual.

However … you can still participate in the fundraiser by shopping at one (or more) of the following boutiques: Say Say Boutique, Mabel & Zora, Ella’s, Meringue, Sofia, Pin Me Apparel, Tumbleweed or Physical Element. Meringue, for instance, is donating 10% of sales from March 13-15th to DoveLewis. That is so cool. Portland is so cool. Even in the present economic downturn people don’t stop supporting good causes like the Pet Loss Support Program at DoveLewis. If you’ve lost a much-loved pet, you know how very hard it is to go through that grief process. Well, let me move along lest I get all soppy in my storytelling. SHOPPING is always good for the soul and getting over the doldrums. I know some of you don’t think so … you know who you are. I beg to disagree.

Back to Meringue … I love this long sleeve long shrug ($35) … bought it in black and it is very auspicious with jeans.4507_front_vintage-black_s-01

Speaking of which. I saw Ms. Tiffany Bean, owner of Mabel & Zora, with hubbie in tow at a weight loss establishment, which shall remain nameless (you know, privacy is everything), on Thursday. She mentioned that they’re celebrating their one-year anniversary at the shop in the Pearl district and their third-year anniversary at the Alberta Street location.

Can you believe it’s already been open there for a year? Seems like yesterday I visited there and watched Tulip (their adorable bulldog) lounging in the dressing room. Love you little

Check out some of their new dresses. The first one is marked down from $124 to $35. Love you Mabel & Zora!

But even when they’re not on sale at Mabel & Zora the prices points are always more than reasonable.

Ooops I almost forgot to tell you about Stella’s on 21st. They have such a great surplus of everything you could spend an entire day just shopping there. Ok maybe I could not you. I’m just sayin’. Go there. Shop. index_242009

On.  Shop On.
