This Week's Style Events

Posted by Marjorie Skinner on Thu, Jul 10, 2014 at 10:44 AM

This week's another sleeper hit on the city's retail calendar. See below for what's listed in today's print edition, and then some:

• Montana artist Nicholas Coleman is setting up at Beam & Anchor with his paintings of the West. Kicking off the show is tonight’s opening reception, with Roman Candle food and Union Wine Co. vino. Beam & Anchor, 2710 N Interstate, Thurs July 10, 6-9 pm

Backtalk joins N Mississippi’s Second Thursday art walk with a show for tapestry artist Kayla Mattes, in whose work “triangles, stripes, and squares intersect with smiley faces, pizzas, and pie charts.” Backtalk, 3962 N Mississippi, Thurs July 10, 6-10 pm

  • Kayla Mattes

• Here’s an excellent idea: Wildfang hooked up with the awesome Portland surface design company Pattern People for a “WF pack collection.” It’s launching this week with a party featuring live music from Charts! Wildfang, 1230 SE Grand, Thurs July 10, 6-9 pm

• Jewelry dealer Arlene Abelow is setting up shop at Mag-Big for an evening, with "tables packed with treasures from Art Nouveau necklaces, Art Deco pendant earrings, lockets, bracelets, Mid-century costume and sterling jewelry, and 1960s & 70s designer signed chic jewelry." Cash and checks only! Mag-Big, 3279 SE Hawthorne, Thurs July 10, 5-9 pm

• This weekend marks the fourth annual Summer Style in the Pearl, where 13 boutiques in walking distance of each other team up to offer various discounts. This year’s participants: Mabel & Zora, Folly, Bonnet, Consigning Women Handbags, Christopher David, Porch Light, FlairWalk, Garnish, Monique’s Boutique, Silkwood, Flor, Rachelle M Rustic House of Fashion, and Jack Spade. Pearl District, Fri July 11-Sun July 13, hours vary by store

• If you needed another push to join the throngs at the Mississippi Street Fair, try this one on: Slightly removed from the fray will be a little oasis of local style called Designer Flea. It’ll have its own dressing room, complimentary cocktails with purchase, and merchandise from Portland accessory and apparel companies like Sticks & Stones, Mag-Big, Seaecho, Julia Barbee, and Haunt, to name just a few. Lot 13, N Mississippi & Shaver, Sat July 12, 10 am-5 pm

• The Portland Flea is setting up shop at its St Johns digs this week, and if you've never experienced one of these vintage and local goods bonanzas... well, it looks like you'll have plenty of opportunities to in the future, but why not see what the fuss is about sooner than than later? Colony St Johns, 7525 N Richmond, Sun July 13, 10 am-4 pm

Wildfang (yes, again) invites you over to watch the World Cup's final match, and they have free booze? Best not tell anyone at Pioneer Place. Wildfang, 1230 SE Grand, Sun July 13, 11 am-3 pm
