Both your grown-up and childlike sides will appreciate downtown-based Red Leaf’s Fragrant Bubble Bath Dough (shown above), come bath time. Made with almond oil and moisturizing glycerin, the shapable, Play-Doh-like scrub ($12) dissolves into soft bubbles under the faucet. Available in sophisticated scents such as fresh clover, basil lime and black tea; if a handful turns into a cheeky jungle animal before getting dunked, who’ll be the wiser?

Wares from Eddie Bauer's latest collection, releasing today

Seattle-based men's and women's outerwear and apparel retailer Eddie Bauer is going back to its Northwest roots, when Eddie was a guy who ran a sporting goods store on downtown's Seneca Street in 1920. The brand has gone through some transition years, but it’s returning to the brand that outfitted the first American expedition to K2.

On Tuesday, September 27, the retailer is releasing its EB Originals Collection, a line that's inspired by EB's founder and the early, iconic designs from its nearly 100-year-old history.

The first patented down jacket, the 1936 Skyliner, is reincarnated with modern styling. Same for the 1942 Yukon--the top seller for more than 30 years--and the B-9 Parka, which originally kept U.S. airmen warm in -70 temperatures in their uninsulated bombers.

For Northwest street cred, the most striking piece is the limited-edition version of the Skyliner, that's lined with Pendleton wool in eight national park-inspired patterns from Portland's Pendleton Woolen Mills. What's more, it’s reversible, so you can wear your Rainier Pendleton Skyliner in multiple ways. Expect this limited-edition gem on October 18. $400 at eddiebauer.com.
