Gem features one standout piece from a local shop. Whether it's a jacket, necklace, or handbag, it's on our have-to-have list.
What: As unabashed fans of Becky Lee Walters' one-woman band and well-traveled rocker style, we were all too excited at the prospect of her Etsy shop, Time Echo Vintage, reopening when she returned from touring Europe earlier this year. It took a few months of nail biting and a little bit of Interweb lurking on our part, but, at last, it's returned. Of course, there's a catch. The shop will remain open online as a pop-up only until October 10, when Walters will gear up for another global trek.
But the pop-up designation doesn't mean the selection's any less exciting than when she ran Time Echo as a full-fledged operation. It's quite the opposite. The storefront is full with Chelsea boots, clutches, ethereal tops, and nearly everything else required to emulate (or nod to) Walters' fashion sense.
Our current favorite among the offerings -- it's been tough to choose -- is the oversize olive leather portfolio clutch from JWMDerr, a now defunct leather-working brand that was based in Bend, Oregon.
Where: Time Echo Vintage
Style It: Earthy browns, grays, and wines will color many fall ensembles, and all three of them suit this autumnal muted green pouch. The M Missoni space-dyed dress blends together navy, lime and black with a bright white and girlish Peter Pan collar. Knee-high cableknit socks from Madewell and a pair of Jimmy Choo metallic monk-strap loafers play on the Wednesday Addams imagery the frock conjures. Purple gradient lenses in circular Cutler and Gross frames give the look an It Girl edge, complemented by the kakhi felt fedora designed by Eric Lynes.
