pics from oh baby, zeldas & souchi party.....more gift ideas???

it was friday night, november 19 at oh baby on nw 23rd. 
i love lingerie. i love the colors. i love the fabrics. i love how it looks with cashmere. i like how lingerie can easily change your mood...and create a mood.
what's a better idea or more luxurious than to merge souchi knits & the trinkets at oh baby?
well, throw in some shoes from zeldas and we're set.


ok, well it is always fun to combine shopping, cashmere & lingerie with bubbles and sweets! 

souchi's madame butterfly and tiffany rib leggings paired perfectly with bubbles.

souchi's wild berry l/s monica wrap dress, tied a bit looser to show off a silk slip dress & goregous purple
bra by huit (available at oh baby)

fabulous gift idea? truffle getty turban AND a lilac bra from la perla! yep, i had to take this one home myself. i love all shades of brown and how great all shades of lilacs look with it. so pretty.

please note link is from neimans, but you should support oh baby...i just wanted you to see the set.
pretty right? retro briefs or skimpy bottoms?

and black silk with ivory lace details....can be worn with any and everything

and then pretty.....antique ivory lace camisole which i'm thinking with beat up jeans (your call old levis or your favorite skinny or straight legs), cp cardi and this truffle/chanterelle wrap! if it's extra cold throw on the tara perfect cardi in chanterelle.

yes, souchi + oh baby + zelda's  is pretty & perfect.

check us out on nw 23rd

Souchi Says Thanksgiving Clothing Drive

Hi friends, we wanted to remind you that this month we are collecting new and gently used clothing for women, men, and children at the souchi store.

At the end of the month, we'll donate all clothing to Grace House, a non-profit run by suzi's mom in St. Joseph, Missouri. Souchi will also donate 10% of November’s earnings to the charity that allows families down on their luck to “shop” for clothing.

We will accept donations of clean, gently used winter clothing -- no stains or holes, please. The goal is to provide comfortable, usable clothing to the less fortunate.

Fall is a great time to clean out closets and give items you don’t want to someone in desperate need. So get started! We can't wait to see you at the souchi store with your bags of new (and old) loot!

p.s. another great way to stay in touch is to join us on our facebook page or find us on twitter @suzisouchi. There's lots of fun stuff happening, so stick around!

HOLY SMOKES.....souchi welcomes studio deseo.....................

patricio $156

brunier $160

chouquer $170

pierre $180

poupre $180

sacre 2 $180

i am in love with studio deseo! the collection is beautiful. it is all hand made by aleishall maxon girard out of her studio in berkeley, california. the attention to detail (check out the mini pom pom signature), color and tiny, tiny sequin, bead, glass choices is amazing.

a friend introduced us and truthfully i just loved her right away. when we walked thru the garden to get to her studio, past the ghee (yes, she makes it herself, and no, i had no idea what ghee was) to the tables of incredible trinkets i was hooked and had to steal some pieces from an order she was working on for a cool store (i also love this store) in brooklyn.

so check it out and call the store if you have any questions.


*oh and stay tuned for a spring collaboration of souchi yarns and studio deseo!

rainy days and tuesdays.......lounging at home.........

LEFT: truffle getty turban, new putty stella cardi, cocoa lydia dress  
RIGHT: salmon julia and banana tiny cami dress

photographer, marie saturn, decided to grab some luxurious cashmere pieces that put you in a mood for lounging at home with friends. i loved the idea because, though i know souchi is a luxury item and often referred to as 'investment pieces' i design the line with the intention of you living your lives in these pieces. they are built to last so no need to think of them as precious. yes, they are luxurious, hand loomed and many times less than 20 being made. still, enjoy, wear, live, play & lounge.  xo suzisouchi

thank you marie!!

what fall means for souchi..........................

souchi LOVES fall!!!!!! i am annoying to most portlanders when the first rain of the season comes. why? because i have a big grin on my face. the smell of rain, wet streets, crisp air and the necessity of something cozy, soft and fantastic. i want camels, rust, olive, cords, suede, cashmere, texture, hats and if i can combine all these and become a walking landscape then watch out!!

here is my interpretation of turning the above into some fall must haves:
gorgeous caramel boots from chloe.....forever classic
incredible knit dress i saw in florence................................WOW!!
my trusty squash slub souchi cashmere and new fave rag & bone hat
souchi's trina cardi cape and mina crew in pate
souchi leg warmers & my new rag & bone desert boots (so cute BUT way heavy!!)
ahhhhh yes i know i always mention the lydia dress, but i LOVE it! and it's so casual with my desert boots.

what are you excited to wear for fall?
