South East Lambert Street













Photographs by Mont Clare

I could have cried a few weeks back when I walked into a thrift store in Petaluma CA and spied a rack full of moderately priced dresses and skirts from the 1920s-1950s. Although most of them were covered in moth holes and unsightly stains I did find one treasure. This 1940s darling fits like a glove and has the most beautiful black velvet detailing on the collar, cuffs and buttons. The next day we stumbled upon another thrift store in the middle of nowhere where I picked up three pairs of vintage leather boots, the pair i'm wearing in these photographs have stayed on my feet since.

This is a glimpse of the house we have been nesting in whilst in Portland. The house of my dreams! The neighbourhood is so darn cute, its more movie set than suburb. We plan to head towards Seattle in the next few days. Although i'm excited to get back on the road I think i'm going to have a pretty hard time waving goodbye to Portland, not to mention my newest kitty pal Tuna...

  7. Sorry I am reply to a really old post! But as soon as I saw Lambert St. and I took a peak at your surroundings I knew you had to be in Portland! I was born and raised in SE Portland and have lived in different parts of Portland mostly all my life. I love your dress and boots!
