Fashion Meets Film - Unzipped

Earlier this month, Seattle Magazine, Gossip & Glamour, and Styled Seattle brought the Seattle blogging community together to celebrate fashion and go back in time a little bit with Isaac Mizrahi's film from the mid 90's Unzipped. I really love documentary films, and I have a soft spot for watching creatives doing what they love. It's really something special to watch them create something from just a vision and bring it to fruition. Seeing the pride in Isaac Mizrahi's eyes the day after his show that year is like no other feeling. 

We celebrated with champagne (and popcorn of course), lashes by Noir Lash Lounge, fashion sketches by Drawing Blueberry and a photo booth thanks to Luminosity Photobooth. All proceeds from ticket sales went to the Rivkin Center in honor of Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month. It was such a fun way to kick off fashion month.

A few bloggers, including yours truly, each partnered with a different retailer in downtown Seattle's Pacific Place to showcase the best of the best of Seattle and 90's fashion. 

Thanks to Barneys for my 90's-tastic outfit

Fall Transition

It's hard to know what the perception of something is when you're right in the middle of it. I know everyone thinks of Seattle as the new tech city and all of that, but when it comes to fashion, I don't know if we've graduated past being "one of the worst dressed cities in America" (read a few years ago), in the eyes of everyone else.

I know that we have a wonderful and growing blogging community. Fashion blogging, might I add, so we must be doing something right. And the amount of independently run stores and Seattle-based clothing designers, seems to keep growing, and getting better at the same time.

Gibran Hamdan is professional football player turned clothing designer who has recently expanded to a women's line. I got to visit his store in Phinney Ridge and check out everything he's been up to as of late (and meet him, and he couldn't be a nicer human being).

I saw this skirt the first time I was there, and knew just what outfit I would create with it. I'm usually not a skirt type of gal, but this one has "Seattle fall" written all over it.
