Wishing you all a Happy Halloween from the Lena fairies!

It is no surprise that Lena carries a variety of great tops and dresses for women, but what you probably don’t know is that these same tops and dresses look great on a little lady as well. All of the styles shown above are hand washable, which make for an even more practical everyday look for both you and your little one.
The Emma is one of Lena’s many versatile dresses. It can be worn several ways and the luscious silk charmeuse feels like butter against the skin. Place an order before Friday October 21st and you can have the Emma in the color of your choice before Thanksgiving! This fantastic dress is also available in a long sleeve version.

A drizzly Portland day calls for curling up in your favorite cashmere while sipping on a cup of french press at your local cafe. Our yummy collection of White + Warren cashmere gloves and wraps are the perfect accessory for keeping warm this fall. With our variety of styles and colors, you are sure to find a great cashmere piece to compliment any fall outfit.
The Little Black Dress should be a staple in every woman’s closet. Whether it is casual or dressy, the classic LBD is the perfect “go to” dress. At Lena Medoyeff Studio, you will find a great dress for a casual brunch, cocktail party or black tie event.

It happens every year, you see the perfect dress for Christmas, Hanukkah, New Years Eve or any other winter holiday you can think of. You say to yourself “It’s perfect!…but what if I find something I like better in the next few months?” You pass up the perfect dress, don’t find anything else that compares to it and when you finally decide to come back and purchase it, someone else has already beat you to the punch! Then you are forced to resort back to the dress that you have worn for every event the last nine years and daydream about the one that got away.
Don’t let yourself wear that boring old dress one more time. Make a resolution right now to seize every opportunity of looking truly fabulous! Come in and get the dress that is calling your name from the window every time you walk by. Whether it be a beautiful, sleek sheath dress that is guaranteed to receive a million “You look just like Audrey Hepburn!” or “Jackie O would be proud,” a long silk charmeuse, flowy number that says “I just stepped off the red carpet,” or maybe the biggest head turner of all, the black mirrored FiFi dress! The soft black shimmer complimented by hundreds of small, silver mirrors and finished with a party sash is certain to be a show stopper! In fact, this dress is so fantastic that you’ll be able to wear it for many years to come without ever seeing something you like better or feeling like it’s old and boring!
And of course, if you have a classic number that just needs a little update, come and just get a party sash! An accessory that can add a little holiday cheer to any outfit!

We always talk about taking your favorite dress and making it casual enough for everyday wear by adding a leather belt. Then came the question from you, “Where do I find a great leather belt?” Our response was a too long list that would keep a person running all over town. Now you don’t have to run far! We’ve got the most beautiful belts in Portland right here at Lena Medoyeff Studio. The one of a kind pieces are hand made in Vancouver, Canada by A TRACE OF GREY DESIGNS.
“A TRACE OF GREY DESIGNS IS THE COMBINED EFFORT OF TWO CREATIVE SPIRITS…CLAUDIA AND MONIQUE. SURROUNDED BY BEAUTY AND INSPIRATION…THEY CONTINUE TO SPREAD THEIR APPRECIATION OF “SOMETHING DIFFERENT” IN THE FORM OF “ONE OF A KIND” PIECES MADE FROM LEATHER, SILVER AND FABRIC.
Also, note the lovely White and Warren cashmere cardigan that Kelley is wearing with that great leather belt. We have lots of cozy cashmere in stock right now; texting (fingerless) gloves, scarves/wraps and cardigans.
