Dinosaur Designs‘ and their eponymous candy colored wares for house and body just released their latest collection – Atelier. This go around they’ve added candles, linen napkins, and puzzles to the mix just in time for holiday gifting. But those geometric bangles? Those are at the tippy top of my list.

Aside from chunky sweaters and scarves, not much screams AUTUMN! to me quite like a new leather bag. In this case, a tote. It’s time to swap out that light and airy canvas one from spring and summer for something a little more substantial for the colder months that are on their way.

Take a look at these dreamy pajamas from Swedish-Candian The Sleep Shirt. They’re more than a step up from sweatpants and ratty old t-shirts with luxe Japanese cotton and and traditional 19th century shapes and cuts. And because many pieces from The Sleep Shirt are unisex, you can feel good buying something for your significant other and sneaking it into your drawer.

“They” say that you can’t do everything well, that you should find your specialty and hone in on it. Practice and practice until it’s perfect. And then you come across someone like Molly McGrath and you realize “they” couldn’t have been more wrong. McGrath is one of those people who can most easily be categorized as a designer, but whose abilities go much deeper. As the talent behind Molly M Designs, McGrath creates jewelry (15 collections thus far), homewares (coasters, trivets, prints, one of a kinds), and pouches. Just goes to show, sometimes a broad spectrum can be a very good thing.
The Hula line by Reiko Kaneko is killing me. Softly. Each ring pendants is crafted from fine bone china then accented with gold or platinum (or kept naked) and suspended from a gold or silver chain. Each style is available in both single and double rings, and all are pleasantly affordable.
We just rolled into Scorpio season (my own personal sign) yesterday, which has me paying extra attention to any astrological items I happen across. These Supernova zodiac rings and zodiac necklaces by Scosha are equal parts feminine and badass and I couldn’t love them more.

There is so much amazing stuff going on in the Blazon collection of scarves and the modeled shots that I can hardly stand it. Geometry! Bold color! BIRDS! Designer Natasha Coverdale has nailed it and is also managing to feed my growing want of a closetful of scarves.
It’s been awhile since I last checked in with Portland-based jewelers betsy & iya, to the tune of three and half years. While the line has clearly grown and matured, they’ve also stayed true to their roots. My favorite new pieces include what’s referred to as “painted pods” that feature either a rainbow of vivid colors or a more downplayed muted palette of neutrals. This micro collection runs the gamut of earrings, necklaces, rings, and bracelets.
