Hey Phebes - Sorry but I am going to be working both of those days so I won't be able to meet up. I still hope you have a fantastic time while you are in town!

Oh wow! I'm only about 20 minutes south of there in Federal Way. Sounds like your going to have a great trip. If your going to be in Normandy Park you are really close to South Center Mall. It's now the biggest mall in Washington State. I hope you have a great trip. I'm going to check my work schedule and then I'll post again and let you know if I'll be off either of those days.

EvansRachel, I'll be in Seattle from July 6 (evening) to July 12 - sort of a whirlwind trip. I'm staying with friends in Normandy Park, but I'll be downtown shopping probably Tuesday & Wed. Where are you?

And I'll make one trip to the Dilettante.

Phebess - sure we could meet up. It just depends on my schedule. I work and am a full time student. When are you coming and what area will you be in?

I love neutrals. I avoid loud colors and splashy prints. And I do think shorts and sandals are appropriate dinner attire in most restaurants and resort areas (what you call "island elegant"); just not appropriate EVERYWHERE.


EVERYONE knows EXACTLY what they NEED to do to be fit, healthy, and slim.
The problem is, nobody does it.

Oh and by the way!!! As a fashionista from Seattle not everyone wears drab colors. Just most of them. I think they like to match their surroundings or something.

Oh wow, drab colors in Seattle? Interesting.

I lived in OC very near the beach, so I was surrounded by beautiful people with good fashion sense. I also had access to all the best stores and boutiques. However, not many things came in my size.

Here, when I go into a restaurant I seriously count the amount of people wearing Suns tee shirts, diamondback shirts, or any other sports team in the world. My whole family thinks I'm crazy that I don't have that stuff in my wardrobe. LOL That will only happen if I go to a game, and borrow someone else's shirt!



Remember that the little things we do each day matter.

Yeah, DH puts on his "dress sandals" when we go out to dinner, LOL!

I'm spending a week in Seattle - I always stand out because I wear colors other than black, denim, beige, or grey. Really, even in summer, people up there are in drab. Bleah!

No worries, Phebess. NB is a true full-time fashionista and is always "in the know." I'm learning a lot from this team, and actually feel I'm developing a style that really fits me, due to everyone's influence.

Our environments REALLY affect our style. Living in the VI, you would need to gravitate toward more casual tropical wear, I'm assuming. When I was in Mexico for a while, I lived in several different fashionable bathing suits and sarongs. LOL

Living in Arizona is really weird, too. Everyone around here has a deep passion for wearing shirts with sports teams on them. I mean, more so than most places. When I lived in California and visited my family here, I knew everyone here was MUCH less fashion conscious. If I wore something that was new or different, they treated me like I was a bit snobby. LOL

Heck, people here wear shorts 24/7, even in nice restaurants. I guess they wear their "nice" shorts. LOL

Remember that the little things we do each day matter.

LOL - thanks, KerryAnn, I don't feel so old and outdated. (I really have huge gaps in my knowledge of pop culture, I've lived outside the mainland for such a long time.)

I think I've found a few designers I like, and tend to stick with them. Plus I've lived in the VI for 22 years - extremely limited shopping options. Life is rough, you know?


LOVE the dress, Anna!

How can you NOT have heard of Chetta B?!?

I looked, and nothing appeals (as usual). You're spending an awful lot of time on Bloomies, aren't you????
