Have you ever had that moment when you walk into a boutique, chat with the owner or the girl or guy behind the cash desk, and think, “We are going to be best friends”? Shopping kismet is a phenomenon where you discover your style soulmate at a boutique and realize their racks and shelves are basically your dream closet and you’re never leaving. We’re willing to bet this happens over and over for the bubbly, wonderfully sweet and hardworking Tez Hartney at her Portland boutique, Parallel. Visiting her shop is a lot like shopping with a best friend and finding out their closet is full of Rag & Bone, Loeffler Randall and a whole lot more. Here, we quiz her on multitasking as a business owner and the designers she can’t wait to get in for fall.
