can you believe i actually asked someone for a photo?  me neither.  the last time i posted a style photo was last september!  and that photo was one i’d found that i never posted.  who knows when i actually took it!  it was nice to get out this weekend, even if it was the briefest of trips (sooooo windy and cold that morning, and TWO whiny kids who needed food).  i’m hoping for more excursions and getting about as it slowly warms/dries.

current obsessions – allie – new york fashion week

New York Fashion Week kicked into gear last week, and each day just keeps getting better and better as I obsessively troll’s runway slideshows. Although I hate to be thinking about anything else other than plaid scarves and English peacoats right now, it is definitely exciting to see what the designers have graced us with as far as Spring Ready-to-Wear fashion goes. Let’s take a look at a few of my favorite looks so far, shall we?

This bubblegum pink full skirt by Jason Wu (minus the prickly hair)

This boobilicious Zac Posen dress. Va va voom!

Jenny Packham’s sparkly gowns. Sparkles!!!

Carolina Herrera’s kitschy bird print. She put a bird on it.

past fashion choice most cringe-worthy?
I used to wear Calvin Klein overalls in high school. From Costco. Why? Why?! Although now overalls are apparently coming back. Yeesh.

clothing item you can’t wait to purchase?
A new pair of brown leather boots for Fall!

what’s your take on seattle style?
It can thoroughly be improved upon. A little less fleece, please. We’re a major metropolitan city! Let’s start dressing that way! Leave the NorthFace for recreational activities. Although I respect that our city doesn’t take itself too seriously, style-wise. Fashion is supposed to be fun, not uptight.

white belts, yes or no?
Oh Lord, it really depends on the context, but usually it’s a big no.

name a song and cocktail that were made for each other-
French 75 and “Le Foule” by Edith Piaf.

great bags – mila – ballard

allie and i decided to hit the ballard market this past sunday, and it was packed.  apparently everyone wants to soak up the quasi-sunshine (before it’s gone again) and there was no shortage of people to snap… we loved mila’s bright bags, i think she said she picked them up in italy?  of course…

enjoy the photos over the next couple of weeks…

Current obsession:  Short Hair
While I’ve been known to post obsessively about my love for the top knot, I also have a lifelong love and adoration for boy-short hair.  Imagine how pleased I’ve been that cute, punky cuts have been popping up a lot lately amidst the long braided hair-do’s.  After growing my hair out for 3 years, I recently and spontaneously went to a new place downtown to get my  hair cut short – and the lovely man said … No.  He thinks women should have long hair.  I thanked him for his time, and promptly went to my standby salon (never should have cheated in the first place!) and got my mane chopped.  Ladies, it feels good.
