Merci & Au Revoir!

It is with mixed emotions that we announce the farewell & closing of Bubble Boutique after five incredible years in the Pearl District.

Thank you to all our loyal customers, friends, and fans for supporting and being part of the actualization of this dream.

Getting to know so many of you personally and helping wardrobe you for interviews, careers, weddings, dream vacations, and the sparkliest of date nights has truly been the most fulfilling matchmaking experience imaginable. You have graced and gifted the shop with your beauty, charm, and charisma -- breathing life, love and warmth into this festive space.

Please visit us this weekend for our big closing sale and to join us in offering up a final bubbly toast to you all.

Jesica Milton Trunk Show

Seattle based designer, Jesica Milton, caught our eye with the effortlessly beautiful designs she sent down the runway at Portland Fashion Week this past Fall. Her simple, silky, ballerina-esque silhouettes in creamy, sorbet-like peach and super soft lavender are so innately feminine yet modern, and thus a perfect match for Bubble. 

Join us in welcoming Jesica and her namesake collection to Bubble for Spring 11' with a happy hour trunk show event! Meet the designer herself and shop the collection seen on the Portland Fashion Week runway.

"Tinsel Town" A Holiday Fashion Show Affair

Yes, it has been a minute since our last post, please forgive us dear friends. We feel that planning our annual Holiday Fashion Show event is however quite the excuse and we hope you agree. We like to think of ourselves as the go-to Portland shop for your party frock needs and therefore felt that we owed it to you to feature our glittzy garb in a fun and festive Holiday event. Since we Bubble girls don't believe in doing anything half-heartedly, we felt the need to make this into an über-glam catwalk affair to bring on the Holiday spirit, and most of all, inspire you to get gussied up!!!

We've had our eye on talented LA designer Heidi Merrick for quite some time, and have been very excited about introducing her to Portland come Spring 11'. While thumbing through the pages of her Holiday wares, visions of fashionable sugarplumb fairies began dancing in our heads and we knew we had to bring you a little sneak peek. Her gold sequined tops, mini skirts and leggings reminded us of the glitz and glamour of Tinseltown and retro Hollywood divas, and our event was born. Heidi's show-stopping looks, complimented by fellow LA-based collections Myne & Aaron Ashe, became a match made in fashion heaven. Here is a look into our show. We hope you enjoy and get inspired to up the ante for the Holidays! We still have some dresses in store, hot off the runway, so stop in or call us to get your hands on one of these show stopping looks that simply command a champagne toast on NYE!

Tis the Season

Like it or not, the Holidays are right around the corner. Christmas decor is popping up left and right, Starbucks holiday cups are in hand and there is talk of possible arctic blasts coming our way. To me this all means one thing; it's time to start weighing my holiday dress options. I may not be a fan of the chillier weather, but I always welcome these days of eating, drinking, being merry with my family and friends, and the numerous excuses to get all gussied up. There is something magical about getting dressed in sequins and faux fur and freezing your butt off as you hop from one holiday party to the next, drinking eggnog and singing Mariah Carey's "All I want for Christmas" at the top of your lungs. Tis the season right?

A serious contender for one of my many fête frocks this season is the Nuj Novakhett strapless mini dress. I love the exaggerated petal hips, back cut-out and mini length. I truly adore everything by this native Thai designer, a new addition to Bubble this Fall. Her silhouettes are feminine yet innovative, and each piece is sophisticated with a hint of whimsical fun. Here are some pics of the dresses we have in store from her amazing Fall lookbook. I want them all!
