New Arrivals From Ponomo

Hand-picked for the holidays!

Hannah Tarkinson, the founder & head designer of Ponomo, stopped by our Portland store this morning with some seriously jaw-dropping new necklaces & earrings. Some of our favorites were the victorian-inspired choker necklace, cut-steel earrings (so gorgeous!),and the earrings made from vintage guitar tuners. They're unique, one-of-a-kind and are all made from re-purposed & reconstructed vintage materials.

Stop by today & find that perfect gift to put under the tree. Trust us, she'll love it... and cherish it forever.

Our Holiday Wish Lists

What we're coveting this year!

With Christmas less than a week away, it's starting to feel like crunch time. Don't stress just yet if you're still shopping - you've still got some time & we're here to help. Last year the Bliss gals shared their gift ideas for their family & friends. This year to switch it up a bit, I've asked them to pick just one item that's on their wish list. Hopefully our picks will help while you're making those last-minute gift purchases.

Here are some gift ideas that she's guaranteed to love:

Frye Veronica Short boot for Angie:

"I'm obsessed with the cognac stonewashed leather!"

Brahms Mount Alpaca & Merino Wool Throw for Kelly:

"This cozy Maine-made blanket is the perfect mix of classic style & warmth - I would love to cozy up under it with a hot cocoa & a good book for the rest of the winter!"

The Pendleton Canyonville Tote for Tiffany:

"This tote in "Painted Hills Black" is definitely at the top of my wish list. It's the perfect weekend bag, especially during the holidays."

Chan Luu Cashmere/Silk scarf for Erin:

"I adore the Chan Luu Cashmere/Silk scarves. With their undeniable softness & gorgeous colors to choose from, it's so hard for me not to want another one (I already have four)!"

Paige Hoxton Ankle Jean for Althea:

"I've been waiting for Paige to come out with a high-waisted skinny jean for a while now. Let's just say, this jean was worth the wait!"

Sundry Racer Back Tank for Sophie:

"Paired with some light-wash destroyed denim, this will be a great look for my California spring break trip!"

Pendleton Ram's Horn Robe for Michelle:

"I love the print & it will keep me warm all winter long. It looks like it's going to be a cold one!"

Velvet Farah Sequin Dress in Pewter for Tonia:

"Perfect for a fun, festive New Year's - a night of all nights!"

"My feet are always cold, so I'm convinced these boots were made for me! I love that they're functional AND super stylish."

Prairie Underground Long Cloak Hoodie for Chelsey:

"Warm, cozy and perfect for lounging around on my days off!"

Butter by Nadia Signature Jersey Wrap Dress for Laura:

"I can go from day to night with this dress - pairing it with tights & Frye boots during the day and my favorite heels at night!"

"They'll add a special twist to my everyday wardrobe. I can't wait to pair them with cable knit sweaters & girly blouses!"

New Scotland Hat for Lauren:

"What a splendid addition to my hat collection!"

Holiday Style

We've got your holiday wardrobe covered!

It feels as if I blinked, and December is here. Not that I mind, I've always been fond of shopping, Christmas lights and Elf marathons. Oh, and holiday get-togethers, of course! If you're anything like me, the next couple of weekends are sure to be a whirlwind of family gatherings and work soirÉes. With the Christmas season upon us, it's time to start planning some festive outfits (after all, we all know grandma gets camera-happy during this time of year!). Lucky for you, we've got your holiday wardrobe covered. From sequins to silk, you're guaranteed to shine this season.

Sequins, sequins, and more sequins. We've been anticipating Velvet's Holiday Collection since we first laid eyes on it in NYC back in May. Seriously, out of any holiday collection we saw, they had the best sequins - and the best colors. Pick from classic black or a soft pewter, along with a variety of cuts & shapes. Probably the most versatile piece from the collection is Velvet's sequin crop jacket. Pair it with your favorite LBD or wear it with a comfy t-shirt & jeans - either way, you'll create an eye-catching look that is sure to get you in the holiday spirit.

Another must-try look from Velvet is their sequin v-neck tank dress. Not only does it demand the spotlight, but it's pencil skirt cut is super flattering. Add some tights, booties and even a layering top underneath. It's dressed-up layering at its best.

We're also loving the idea of a sequined tank. Perfect on its own or as a layering piece, it's an easy way to add some glam to your wardrobe basics. In addition to Velvet's dainty tank, Susana Monaco's light pink Meredith Top is a great choice if you're looking for something a little longer in length. If you ask us, every woman should have at least one sequined piece in her closet.

Silk tops.They're festive enough for holidays yet ideal for everyday too. Without question, our charmeuse blouse by Steven Alan in bright red perfectly suits this time of year. Wear it with your go-to pair of jeans or some wax-coated skinnies by J Brand. It's a closet mainstay that we simply adore.

Or maybe you had something else in mind for the holidays? Maybe a long-sleeve dress or cozy, cashmere sweater. We have those too! Stop by soon - we'd love to help make your holiday merry & bright.

Buy Local Holiday Gift Guide

Shop at home for the holidays!

Our Friday just got even better at Bliss, mostly due to the releasing of Maine Today's Buy Local Holiday Gift Guide. It was really exciting to see our favorite pieces mixed in with other goods from local boutiques & shops. And the photos? So, so beautiful. Trust me, with all the gift guides out right now, this is the one you have to see!Click HEREto view the entire gift guide.

A couple months ago, Laura from Fore Front Fashion approached us about this festive photo shoot, and of course we were thrilled to contribute some of our seasonal goods - cozy sweaters, luxe corduroys & wool blankets. It's clear that all of their hard work has really paid off - not only am I in the mood for holiday shopping (I haven't even started yet!), but their final product is fun, charming & packed full of things we love about our little city.

Oh, and there's more good news. This is only part 1 of their holiday gift guide! We can hardly wait to see part 2 (coming later this month!).
