Oddly enough, you cant find the work of Portland designer Elizabeth Spencer's Aiguille et Fil in any stores, even though she whips up the kind of cute dresses that PDX girls love to make their uniforms for barefooted grass romping in the summer and smart layers in the fall. I'd expect to see some of her pieces on the racks by next season, but in the meantime I thought she deserved to have a plug here on MOD--the dresses, which are in the $80-100 range, can be had via etsy:
