i don’t often venture to the east side.  but i keep hearing about interesting fashion events happening over there, and think i might have to make the pilgrimage.

spring forward with style‘ will be going on the 19th and 20th in several shops over at the bravern, get all the info about it right here– featured shops include: neiman’s, jimmy choo, tory burch, piazza sempione, david lawrence and salvatore ferragamo.  if you make it over there, mention that you read about it on needleplusthread at any of the concierge desks or booths, and receive a FREE bravern signature tote (i LOVE getting free stuff!).

since one of my goals for 2010 involved sipping more champagne, you can bet i’m at least checking out new spring stock at tory burch (go there on the 20th to get a pic snapped by le21eme), and i’m interested to see which stars wore which choo’s to the oscars (apparently they have some collatoral showcasing stars on the red carpet?) and i’ll sip and nibble to my heart’s content.

for ongoing info on what’s happening at the bravern, be sure to follow them on facebook, and twitter.

the update – seattle tradition – christmas

08 Dec
December 8, 2009
From needle+thread

EVENTS-
dec 3rd-17th (thursdays) – downtown – an improvised christmas carol – have you been to unexpected productions? HI-larious, and their interpretation of a christmas carol is SO FUNNY. i think i went 3 times the first year i found it. they take suggestions from the audience for elements of the story, and it turns a story we’ve all heard a zillion times, into something unexpected, fresh and FUNNY. GO!
dec. 4th – downtown – figgy pudding caroling contest – if you’ve never been, it’s worth a stroll through, or stay for the whole thing. i love that they block off the streets and you can wander and listen to all the groups sing. here’s some info about the event.
dec. 4th – top of queen anne – holiday magic – from mcgraw to galer, all the merchants on top of queen anne are having a festive night
dec 5th – holiday kick off at the sip and ship in ballard – i know there’s music and a percent off, but can’t find my email about it. i LOVE the sip and ship. and they take a lot of stress out of wrapping AND shipping. two things i’m not fond of.
dec. 6th – the boutique culture warehouse sale – i went to the one they had end of summer… some great deals from some of your favourite boutiques AND this time they’re doing a clothing swap.  here’s the info.
dec. 12th – santarchy or santacon… of course they have a facebook page.  the best part of santarchy is coming across it randomly.
dec. 17th – holiday party at mario’s, their website has all the info.

plus i just did a search for where to see the best light decorations, and my favourite, olympic manor is listed in this article– although, i can’t tell how old it is. and just realized it’s written by courtney strand, who i met for the first time at blogmeetblog!

more to come, and if you know of something great, email me!

i grew up in a relatively small town.  what am i saying… 6000 is teenie tiny.  i sometimes feel like i’ve come so far from where i started, that i’m never very sure if i actually did come from there.  christmas-time is that period in the year that that i’m fully reminded.  makes me remember growing up- maybe it’s like this for everyone…

i seriously start getting giddy, my ADD kicks into overdrive with all the sparkle, music, parties… baking opportunities. i make christmas music mixes and make my husband nuts with the over-playing of the waitresses ‘christmas song’, i like wearing socks and sliding in the kitchen while gene autry blares, and i make cookies i only ever eat this time of year.

since this blog is seattle specific, i wanted to begin to collect all the things i love attending every year.  seattle is beautiful at christmas.  i love living here, and making new traditions in our city by the sea… i know i’m getting a jump on the christmas stuff, pre-thanksgiving- but… this is what i’m looking forward to, and there it is.  if you want to find a list of christmas events, check back and click on inspiration or musings.  for the month of december, i’ll make sure it stays at the top.  have a happy thanksgiving (we’re doing a small t-day with friends- wii give thanks!- it’s kind of self explanatory…and will involve turkey).  hope to see you about town, and as always… i’ll have my camera.

p.s. the picture is from last week and involved no editing but cropping.  i’m loving the crazy light shift this time of year- although it is making for some tough fashion capturing.
