Portland has a bit of a reputation as a style backwater. Maybe it’s the weather, maybe it’s the laid-back attitude. After all, this is a city where it’s not only acceptable to wear North Face jackets around the office, but it is also encouraged. It’s a place where people who wear socks with sandals are not shunned, but thought to be prudent.
Leanna NYC tries to help the city rescue itself from itself. Leanna NYC is a boutique that brings some New York City fashion to the streets of the Pearl District. Have you ever watched an episode of Gossip Girl and seen Serena wearing a cute jacket or Blair wearing an amazing dress and immediately wanted it? Chances are, Leanna NYC will have that garment, or at least something very close to it. The store offers the works of designers and labels such as Greylin, Botkier, Gracia, Martí, Tre, B-Low the Belt, Fidelity Denim, Foley + Corinna, Maloom, Lanston, and James Jeans, meaning you’ll be sure to find something at Leanna NYC that you can’t get anywhere else in the city.
The clothes at Leanna NYC aren’t exactly meant for the workplace, but they more than work for just about any other occasion throughout your day. If you are going out for a dinner at one of Portland’s nicest restaurants, you can pick up a perfect handbag and dress for the occasion. If you just plan on strolling around the Pearl, you can get a stylish skirt for the occasion. Or, if you plan on hitting the club, Leanna NYC also has the jeans and tops for that as well. The best part about all of these garments is that none of them clock in at more than $400. For the most part, they range from only $50 to $150, giving you that New York City fashion sensibility at a distinctively Portland price.
Leanna NYC is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m.
