Claire | Outside Quinn's Pub



Claire has such great style. She's one of those people that looks amazing even when she just throws something on to run an errand. Always fun cross paths with her on Capitol Hill.

Raya Leary | Fremont


It's Raya! Such great style every time I see her. I love this vintage denim smock that she found thrifting. Raya works for Seattle's 4Culture which is such an incredible organization. Check it out here.

Add wet ingredients to dry ingredient and stir until just combined. Fold in chocolate.

Pick your favorite photos for an upcoming art exhibit



I've been asked to display my photos in an exhibit and I'm having a hard time choosing 10 photos out of the 2000+ pictures I've featured on here since 2008. Help! I've narrowed it down to 35. Here's a link to a dropbox album with all of them:

Ferdous Ahmed | Outside Cafe Vita



It had been way too long since I ran into Ferdous. I always love seeing what outfit he has put together and hearing about his current art endeavors.

Hanna Nicole and Kallen Lynch | Edison, WA


I found these two during a day trip up to Edison, WA. Both were visiting the area from Port Townsend where Hanna teaches Qigong and Kallen owns Dalla Notte bakery.  They also told me about the Port Townsend Wearable Art Show held every year in their town. Sounds amazing!

And a reminder that this week is Skagit Fashion Week.

Kyoko Kurosu, Hatsumi Yoshida and Yumiko Asuwa | KOBO


I met these ladies while picking up flowers at Marigold and Mint at Melrose Market. They were visiting Seattle from Japan for a trunk show to showcase Hatsumi Yoshida's (Center) designs at KOBO in the International District. All three are wearing her designs.  Hatsumi is currently working with artisans in Bali to create work to develop their skills in creating a line of indigo wearables. Super cool.  Here is a blog post from KOBO about the trunk show that they held. You can still see her work there.

PS. I highly recommend going to either of the KOBO locations. I love the one near my place on Capitol Hill. I can always find the perfect gift there.

La Conner, WA

Tanja is doing public relations currently for MoNA, specifically the Skagit Fashion Week that they have coming up next week. From March 10th-14th there will be several fashion and arts related events going on at the Museum in La Conner and Mt. Vernon, in partnership with The Friendship House to raise money for the community. Such a great cause. I'm excited to check it out. 

Tanja has such great style, eh? Love her winter shorts.
