You may know Jenny The Shanghai Pearl from the film A Wink & A Smile or from her performances in Seattle. I love running into burlesque performers on the street. Such beautiful and charismatic women both on and off the stage. Remember Jamie Von Stratton?

Pine & Nagel Pl
Ah, my favorite... a crisp white shirt with a great tailored fit. It is no surprise that J Maxwell is dressed well. He used to run Pun(c)tuation Gallery on Capitol Hill with Matt Noren and Maikoiyo Alley-Barnes who are the designers behind Seattle clothing brand Tarboo Inc. Tarboo used to reside in the back of the gallery space. Unfortunately the gallery shut its doors a while back but Tarboo is still going stronger than ever. They are now located in Pioneer Square and have come a long way since I wrote about them here almost two years ago. You can also find Matt and Maikoiyo at the Fremont Sunday Market.Share on Facebook

Tremane was working at Essenza when I went there recently to pick up a refill bottle of Savon Figue. I've mentioned Essenza on the blog a lot over the years. It is such a special shop. When I did the Seattle City Guide for Tory Burch I found my favorite perfume there and really fell in love with the store. I've been going a few times a year since to restock on items for myself or pick up a gift for someone else.

Miranda and I both happened to be waiting for our food at the same time at Marination Station above QFC on Pine. These white smoking slippers are such a great alternative to the sandals or ballet flats you might normally see paired with a dress like this. Classy.
And speaking of Marination Station... I am completely obsessed with their Torta. I have been eating it about once a week lately. It used to just show up on the specials board but for a while now it has been a part of the regular menu. You have to try this sandwich.Share on Facebook

I took Arielle's photo earlier this year on Capitol Hill. She was all bundled up in a beautiful winter coat. It was great to happen upon her again in the warm weather when we ended up on the same bus to Fremont.
I've yet to find a pair of round sunglasses that work on me but Arielle's have me determined not to give up on my mission because her shades are CUTE!Share on Facebook

Remember the Justin Elise borrowed her shirt from? I can see why she is shopping his closet. Justin said the greatest thing when we were talking. He explained that he tries to dress in a way that is"minimalist but not minimalistic". Well put! And I really like these
worn out loved Doc Martens.

It's Adam! I love seeing him around Capitol Hill. Always dressed beautifully and has a smile on his face. You must check out his music. Adam's band is Tenderfoot and he and his band mates are currently working on a full length album called Horses in the City. So excited for this album to come out. Their single Don't Hold Your Horses is gorgeous.Share on Facebook

I found Megumi while I was waiting for a friend outside of the Paramount Theater prior to a recent live show of Radiolab recorded there. If you haven't yet heard the Radiolab podcast I highly recommend it and if you listen to the podcast but haven't caught a live show yet definitely check it out on the next tour. What an engaging and beautiful performance.
Mmm, Molly Moon's Milk Shake...

Seattle Met's Style Editor Laura Cassidy and the magazine's new Assistant Style Editor Amanda Zurita. Laura is a big part of why Seattle has a Fashion Night Out. Last year she and the manager at Mario's both felt strongly that Seattle needed to take part in this international event so they put their ideas together, talked to downtown retailers and encouraged people to get behind making it happen. It was a success last year and now it is an annual event.

If like me you are wondering where Birdie gets her hair done, do not fret, Birdie gave me her stylist's card. She goes to Scarlet at Radar Hair and Records in SODO. Her outfit was styled by Kimberlee Iblings of Deco Modisti.

Boylston & Republican
Elise is a long time Capitol Hill resident. She has been traveling a lot lately internationally so I am glad that I caught her during her time home. Like many of us ladies Elise likes to borrow parts of her style from the boys. She snagged this shirt from her friend Justin and is now trying to decide how to break it to him that he may not be getting it back...
Funny story, I photographed Justin downtown only one day after this (I'll be posting his photo soon). I didn't put it together until Justin mentioned in passing that I had taken his friend's photo the day before. The city can be very small at times.

Last night was Fashion's Night Out. I stopped by Pacific Place for Downtown Seattle Rocks the Runway. The runway was set up right in the center of the main floor. Reserved seating space was completely full and each floor of Pacific Place had people lining the banisters to catch the show. Goody bags were gifted, lovely hors d'oeuvres were served and everyone mingled until the show began. In my normal fashion I spent the entire time pestering people for photos. Here are some of them. The rest coming soon...
Nancy's outfit was by far my favorite of the night. This is a woman who truly loves clothes and enjoys putting a unique outfit together. Her coat is from NY designer So Hung (awesome name.) and her skirt is from Seattle's own Nube Green.

Wendell and the rest of the group working at JCrew last night had a great view of the show.
