Bettie Page Store in Portland Oregon Opens!
So we asked around a bit and came up with nothing. We ended up walking up and down Broadway until low and behold there it was not even a block a way from Pioneer Square! We proceeded to go in to have a look see, there were so many beautiful things to look at so many lovely reproduction pieces of clothing from back in Bettie's heyday! Last Sunday was the store's grand opening day.The next thing I know Jen is pulling outfits off of racks and handing them to telling me to try them on, saying this one will be perfect for you and so will this one! I tried on each wonderful piece and they all look they were made for me! The shop was beautiful, laid out so nice and the staff were so perfectly sweet and helpful. Plus the music was divine, I felt like I had taken a time capsule back in time to the 1950's.
I ended up picking out and buying a sweet little sheer, long sleeve blouse, it was an off white with red and black, medium size polka dots. It will go with the two black pencil skirts that I bought last week at the mall, I had been looking for a blouse with some red in it to go with the black pencil skirts but it does not appear that red is an "in" color for spring which is too bad because I love me some red! However red does seem to be a very popular color for the 1950's which is lucky for me because the 50's is one of my favorite era's!
I highly recommend the Bettie Page store for all ladies that are looking for a nicely made and feminine clothing line, whether or not you are a Bettie fan I am sure you will love this store!
Until next time!
