No matter where I go, finding a good party dress always seems to be a challenge. They are often too frilly to justify wearing in the real world, too stylish to be able to wear it in two months, or too expensive to buy in the first place. I came across Suite 6, and found my new place for a party dress fix. Suite 6, located in the Alberta Arts district and surrounded by multiple Thai restaurants, lines their walls with flattering and wearable dresses. Everywhere I look, there are dresses suitable for Portland art openings and maybe a fancy dinner and drinks- Biwa, anyone?
Suite 6 is also rather tongue in cheek about some of their items. There is a grey, flowey sequin mini dress/tunic top by Ringspun that is PRINTED with sequins rather than having actual sequins sewn on. The effect is a rather chic scaly look. Something else that cracked me up momentarily is the new spin on a BFF necklace set of interlocking USB sticks, plated in gold. If you don’t have a BFF, you can just wear it by yourself, but it would be more interactive to share!
If you are in need of a pair of black or grey leggings that last more than three months before they fall apart (the ones from Target are nearly disposable), this is the place to get them. Prices for durable and creative black leggings range in price from $35-$49.
I happily galloped away from the boutique with a black dress, on sale for $40, that directly channels Audrey Hepburn. It is definitely date worthy, but I can also wear it to work. The exposed zip and sheer black back is extra exciting.
