a few more photos from ballard, and then i’ll hopefully post a few from downtown this week.
love amanda’s easy look… and i’ve been seeing a lot of cute little retro coach bags…
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.
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.
Current obsession: printed pants.
This pair, worn by Scandinavian fashion blogger Elin Kling, looks uber-comfortable, and that peachy color adds an extra element of uniqueness. I have yet to see anyone in Seattle sport them… so come on ladies! Let’s embrace comfy chic! (and no, you can’t wear your bunny slippers with them, that’s taking it too far)
many apologies to this smiley gent, who’s name i did ask for, but i somehow didn’t jot down. if you know him, drop me a line, and i’ll fill it in.
this gentleman said he modeled for blackbird, and that most of his items were from there… loving the navy shoe.
