  • My favorite shop in Portsmouth/Blog Circle NH Photographers

    This month’s blog party assignment is to highlight a local business…a special place that you enjoy. I think my hometown of Portsmouth is very blessed with a great downtown and lots of places to shop and eat. But one of my very favorite stores is Puttin on the Glitz.

    First, I think we can all agree that what make a business special is the person behind it…here is POTG’s proprietress Assiah Russell, photographed at last month’s Fashion Night Out Portsmouth. This is clearly a woman from whom it would be very wise to take fashion advice. Disclaimer: Assiah and I are not related, though I wish I shared some of those fashion genes 🙂


    Here are some images from a recent evening…helping a customer make a great selection, then making sure she had the right fit with the aid of some hat tape!

    And my question for Assiah:  What’s your favorite fashion accessory?



    “That is absolutely an unfair question to ask of someone who owns a shop featuring jewels, hats, travel tote bags for women, & accessories 🙂 I love them all and so believe that accessories are what make every outfit memorable. I have many pieces of jewelry that I love to wear…some of it very sparkly and vintage-looking like Sorrelli, and then other simple pieces of oxidized sterling with some of my favorite semi-precious stones… labadorite, garnet, and rubies. I have recently fallen in love with little leather clutches…such a tiny little accessory that makes such a statement.  But I must say, that I never am without a hat nearby…gorgeous straw hats with a trim of botanicals or feathers for summer, and a Lillie & Cohoe hat from Canada with it’s little hidden ear flaps for winter glam and coziness”….Assiah



    And if you’re in the Seacoast Friday the 19th from 5-9pm, stop by the Fall Forward Trunk Show, where you can meet the artists and share in some drinks and nibbles!  Good, clean & classy fun!
