During a recent visit to Portland my friend Carol took me to the new downtown home of Stand Up Comedy. This store is so dreamy. Carol and I were on cloud nine looking through the clothing and accessories carefully selected for the shop by owner Diana Kim. We felt like we needed to examine everything because each piece had something unexpected... a rogue pocket, exaggerated pleats, a unique fabric. I felt like I was at an interactive art gallery. I didn't come in with the intention of making any purchases for myself (my never ending struggle with Christmas shopping) but I left with the most incredible Rowena Sartin tunic. This piece, and everything in the shop actually, just made me smile. It was very apparent that this is Diana's intention: To provide a boutique experience that doesn't take itself too seriously but is truly one of a kind. It was so refreshing! Laughing and joking while looking at clothing this beautiful is not something you come by very often. Stand Up Comedy is a must visit next time you are in Portland.
Diana was nice enough to let me snap a photo of her in front of the shop. Her coverall is pretty much the cutest non-maternity maternity getup ever...
