    TINDER RANT

    Friday, October 24, 2014

    Let’s be real, Tinder is f*cking weird. You feel shallow doing it, but yet it’s kind of an ego boost and you have already succumb to the fact that almost everything you do is online. So, why not? But an ego boost no matter how you graph it doesn’t justify how many *FACE, PALM*’s I’ve […]

CONTENT

You know we’re crazy for fashion over here at E+E, but we also love innovative events that leave us feeling inspired and energized. That’s why on Sunday we can’t wait to attend Content, a live design and fashion installation at the Ace Hotel Portland. 28 local designers will each take over a room on the […]

PORTLAND GARMENT FACTORY

On the heels of author Elizabeth Cline’s visit to Portland, discussions of sustainable fashion have been buzzing around our design community. But Britt Howard and Rosemary Robinson have had their fingers on the pulse of eco-conscious fashion since they founded their independent manufacturing company, Portland Garment Factory, in 2008. These talented and ambitious ladies work […]

MR. MAN VENDORS – PART 1

We’re getting excited for our upcoming MR. MAN event! In order to get to know our manly vendors a little bit better, we asked them some very serious and thought-provoking questions… 1. What’s your definition of a MR. MAN? 2. Name a real man’s drink. 3. Manliest movie. Ready. Go.   Click HERE and comment with […]

SILENT DISCO

Kickstarter is the absolute best way for people to raise money to bring their unique product and event ideas to life. We would go broke if we tried to back every awesome idea out there, but sometimes, one comes along that we just cannot ignore. You know, like Portland’s first art-infused silent disco (a silent […]

WEEKEND GUIDE NOV

With Halloween on a Wednesday this year, people are questioning whether or not they were supposed to celebrate last weekend or this weekend. We say, to hell with Halloween! We’re over it. If you’re feeling the same way, we’ve got you covered with a guide to some of the best upcoming events in Portland. Check […]

BULLĒ CLASSIC

Bullē Classic is fresh in every sense of the word. Founders Aaron Moiel and Nichalus Woolley are not only newcomers to the Portland fashion industry (they launched Bullē in 2012), but they’re also churning out high-quality garments and accessories (made in the United States) that we haven’t seen before. When thinking of the street style […]

OLD TOWN PIZZA

Are you planning on grabbing a bite to eat this Halloween? At Old Town Pizza, there’s a chance that you’ll get a side of paranormal activity with your pepperoni pie. That’s right, the West Side location is notorious for being haunted by a resident ghost named Nina. In 1880, before Portlanders could grab a slice […]

EMILY WELLS

We’ve been listening to Emily Wells non-stop over here at E+E. Wells, the “one-woman orchestral/electronic tour-de-force”, started playing violin when she was four years old. Four! What were you doing when you were four? Her music is not exactly categorized into a genre, though people liken her style to a hybrid of classical and hip-hop. […]

LITTLE BOXES

When we think of Black Friday, all that comes to mind is mass chaos, huge crowds and an alarm going off at 2:00am, just to throw elbows at fellow shoppers at a department store. This year, your holiday shopping experience doesn’t even have to come close to that craziness! We got all the info from […]

PIXIE PROJECT

We really can’t say enough good things about the Pixie Project. Owner Amy Sacks has a positive outlook on animal rescue and adoption, and her enthusiasm and love for all animals is contagious. When thinking about pet adoption, she doesn’t want people to think of a “sad Sarah McLachlan song”. She’s all about finding the […]

VIRGINIA WOOF DOG DAYCARE

We’ve always appreciated Virginia Woof Dog Daycare on the sole basis of its cute name (we love a good pun), but didn’t know much about it beyond that. We stopped by the other day and spent some time with all of the pups and director David Stone, and realized that this nonprofit dog daycare is […]

DOWN BY THE RIVERSIDE

We all know, Oregon’s beer makers takes their trade seriously. That’s why we particularly love Deschutes Brewery, one of the finest craft beer makers located on the banks of the Deschutes River in Bend. Naturally, the brewery is a huge supporter of the Deschutes River Conservancy, a local non-profit dedicated to keeping the water, so vital to […]

BOKE BOWL

We were so intrigued by the Yelp review of Boke Bowl that we posted earlier this week, that we had to go check it out for ourselves. For those of you who don’t remember the review (but really, how could you forget?), a comedic Yelper compared the dining experience at Boke Bowl to all things […]

SLUMBERHOUSE

Think of what you know about perfume. Now, forget it all. Josh Lobb, the man behind Slumberhouse, has a unique approach to fragrance that is unlike any other that we’ve come across before. Slumberhouse is a boutique cologne label based here in Portland, but don’t mistake boutique for “stuffy”or  “overpriced”. Josh’s lack of formal training works in […]

TRES PLACE

We like to think of Portland as an incubator, keeping creative pioneers and their big ideas warm and safe while they prepare to hatch. The accepting, encouraging community of collaborators found here also makes it the perfect place for someone to launch one of these big ideas, instead of migrating to a larger city like […]

“CREATIVE” YELP REVIEWS

Yelp, has become a daily necessity. At least over here on our end, where there is way too much eating out at restaurants and the fact we can never remember the name of that random place on the corner of so and so. Yelp provides just about everything – a restaurant serving Pho till 4am, […]

Portland Catapult

As we all know, Portland’s fashion community is just that…a community. It’s not a backstabbing, ruthless group of folks. Instead, there are countless events throughout the year that bring designers, retailers and creators together for the better. That’s why we love Portland Catapult, which is a fashion show for emerging designers that focuses on building […]

We hate to be the bearers of bad news, but have you checked the weather forecast lately? The rain is upon us, folks, and we can’t help but feel a little sad to kiss the fabulous Portland summer goodbye. How are we planning on beating the impending blues? We’d be lying if we said we […]

SEEK THE UNIQUE

Seek the Unique could technically be characterized as a vintage furniture store, but that wouldn’t even begin to cover the dynamic, ever-evolving space. Comprised of a furniture showroom and workshop, Seek the Unique is a one-stop shop for all things beautiful and rare. It’s like going to the world’s best flea market, as owner Andrea […]

Anyone passionate about traveling or just passionate for life should follow Passport Project. We were recently introduced to the organization and could not express into words how much we dig it. Their goal is to inspire young people, starting with Americans, to get passports, travel, and participate in global culture. There’s nothing better than people taking […]

The massive new space is home to an office, workshop, and retail showroom where owner Spencer Staley and his crew of 9 talented craftspeople lovingly refinish mid-century modern and industrial furniture.

GRAND CENTRAL BAKERY

Though Gwenyth Bassetti founded Grand Central Bakery in Seattle in 1989, it has turned into quite the mini-empire (with seven locations) here in Portland. Despite growing in popularity and size, it has managed to maintain a high level of quality and deep sense of community. This is largely due to the fact that each location is owned […]

FLOATING OCEANS – ALEXIS GIDEON

Portland is full of creative energy; there’s no shortage of people taking risks and exploring new concepts. To be honest, there’s little we’re surprised by. But Alexis Gideon, a current Portland resident, has managed to push the envelope further than we could possibly imagine with his new 38-minute stop-motion video opera, Video Musics III: Floating […]

Every aspect of Garnish—from the seamstress who brings Erica’s designs to life, to the complementary in-house alterations that prolong the lifecycle of the […]

VAUX’S SWIFTS

Portlanders are perfectly content with waiting in long lines for a lot of things (namely, brunch), and though we hate to bring up that infamous Portlandia line, this city does have a rather healthy obsession with all things aviary. So, it would make complete sense that during every night in September, you’d find a whole slew […]
