Tea With Tonia

Tonia settled into her chair, fixing a cup of tea, an armful of bangles jingling with each movement. In honor of our birthday, we invited Tonia, a lifelong customer and friend of Bliss, to tea with the hopes of learning and sharing her perspective on style. With the sun beaming in through the tea room, we got to hear her story from the very beginning.


This year we celebrate our fourteenth year of Bliss Boutiques. Fourteen years of building relationships with our customers, offering the brands whose ethics, style, and quality we believe in, and enjoying the Portland and Portsmouth (and online!) communities. We believe there is just something special about the boutique shopping experience. In the spirit of another year of Bliss, we asked our employees which Bliss item they hold most dear, and we loved hearing what they had to say!

Meet the Ilanas

There's just something about the Ilana collection from The Frye Company that makes it impossible for us not to love. Perhaps it's the way these boots feature a classic western style while gracefully incorporating new, modern features like a stacked leather heel, and intricate decorative stitching. Maybe it's how versatile they are, looking just as beautiful with a sundress as they do with jeans and a blazer. It could be the the rugged Italian leather, oiled and distressed to perfection, or the soft suede of the Ilana fringe boots. Meet the Ilanas and decide for yourself!

Handkit Love

We are pleased to announce Bliss Boutiques is now carrying The Third Piece, a Boston brand that has transformed and refined knitted accessories into stylish, sleek, and softpieces that complete fall and winter outfits. Co-founders Carina and Kristen believe no outfit is complete without something special, in this case, hand-knit accessories made with flawless craftsmanship and soft merino wool yarn.

TGI #FRYEDAY. It's been a crazy week at Bliss (with a lot of new Frye)! So... we've decided it's time for a #FryeDay giveaway.

Why We Love Frye

Let's talk LEATHER. Have you slipped your feet into a pair of these bad boys?
Let us tell you, feels like buttah.
That brings us to FIT - We'll bet our bottom dollar that once you find a pair of Frye boots - you'll never want to take them off.
DESIGN. The attention to detail is immaculate. Pointed toes, gore stitching, & antiqued leather - mmmhhmmmm.
STYLE. (See photos)

Happy #FRYEday!
