Poems and Pictures

We are really excited about the arrival of this book! Out Here is a gorgeous photographic and poetic view of the Steens Mountain area of Oregon, with photographs by Roger Dorband and poems and drawings by Ursula LeGuin. It’s so, so beautiful. It’s $35 and all our copies are AUTOGRAPHED! Ursula LeGuin is nominated for the Oregon Book Award for Out Here!

What We Wear

That's right ya'll, along with our lovely collection of books, jewelry and more, we are now selling records! They are currently sold in our store but will soon be sold online once our new site is up and running! We are also working on getting a new in-store listening station so you can take a listen before you buy. How cool is that?! Everything Melanie is modeling above is currently available at Icon (except for her super amazing boots).

Out on...

Melanie | Candace | Kari


Candace here (as always). I have been on vacation and am so sorry we have missed you all for the past few days! We've been working so hard on getting the funding to start our online shopping site (expect a super awesome kickstarter video soon) that we all decided it was time to take a short break.

For weeks so much coffee has been keeping us going. Melanie, Kari, and I decided when we have our beautiful new office we will have the best personal coffee mugs. It may be silly to find self expression in such simple things but I also think it is way awesome and beyond cute. As we had a breakfast meeting together the other morning at J&M Cafe we took a test run since they let you choose your own mugs at their self serve coffee station. (By the way if you are a Portland native or are ever visiting we all highly reccomend this place, so good!)

Tomorrow we will be back on track with oh so many lovely retail posts! See you then!

{The Grid Notebook, $6 | Gold Fan Earrings, Betsy and Iya, $19 | Gold Bangles, Tumbleweed Bead, $25 each | "B" Ring, Elise Bunker, $38 | Gold Rings, Tumbleweed Bead, $12 each} 

Pulling inspiration from 70s stewardesses, Andre 3000, and Victorian era gentlemen, Melanie once again out-cutes us all. We had a lot of fun taking lots of pictures because our shoot was on one of our rare sunny days we've been having. We are currently sold out of the golden fans but will be getting more soon (we do however have a dangly pair that is also $19). Everything else is currently available at Icon!

What We Wear | Nick

Meet Nick. Not to be confused with Niki (although they both have a love for super sweet skateboards). We are a shop made up of mostly ladies but Nick is one (of two) resident males here at Icon. He's a great sport hanging out with the girls all day, and is known to rock a fancy Icon tee on the regular. Nick's showing off the two Santa Cruz skateboards we have left at the shop, some beautiful bug art, and one of our newest books Beautiful Losers. All items are currently available for purchase at Icon.
