For the last six years, Rosanna, our local doyenne of tabletop décor, entertaining and the perfect cake pedestal, has hosted a Tablescape contest to encourage creativity and highlight the well-set table.
Starting today, NuBe Green is cleaning shop. Head to this Capitol Hill emporium of feel-good and functional, US-made furniture, gifts, clothing and home goods for their four-day storewide garage sale. Through Saturday, June 1, find most items marked down between 20 and 50 percent. It’s a goody!
I don’t need to try to convince you to shop consignment. Either you do or you don’t. Personally, I love it, mostly because I can get high-quality goods for less money and currently I’m in a more-is-more phase of wardrobe building. Which is why I’m excited to check out Mary-Bridget Pehl’s online consignment shop, MB’s Finds, and shop her upcoming pop-up on June 7 and 8 (at 1930 First Ave., right next to Baby & Co., like her Facebook page for more details).
When my dad had cancer eleven years ago, Gilda’s Club was there for him and that support made him happy. It was that simple. When we were there, he was happy, and that was all that mattered, so I’m forever grateful to this organization for that and those memories and like to do whatever I can to support them.
Gary Manuel salons have been beautifying the people of Seattle since 1979 and on May 30, you’re invited to check out their newest Studio concept space, in South Lake Union, on Thursday, May 30 at 6 p.m. for their grand opening and Earth Month celebration.
March 27 was a big day for Seattle. Not only did 15,000 middle and high school students pack KeyArena but the red carpet was rolled out for a lineup of stars, including Magic Johnson, Jennifer Hudson, Mia Farrow, Demi Lovato (via Skype), former Sonics player Gary Payton and a surprise performance by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis. This star-studded event was in support of the first-ever We Day in Seattle, an initiative of Canada’s Free the Children, a nonprofit youth empowerment organization that encourages young people to become active citizens of the world.
Personal Style: Mount Baker resident Nancy Abramson keeps her own counsel on her wardrobe choices. As long as an item is comfortable and age-appropriate, it’s fair game for this lifelong Seattleite, who counts more indie and local designers in her enviably large and organized closet than high-end labels.
I don’t know about you, but I love bags. My mom just commented the other day on how many purses, handbags and totes I have—and this is coming from the queen clotheshorse of all time. Nonetheless, it’s true, I have a ton of them, and while they’re not expensive or designer, they’re all distinctive in some way, which is what I look for specifically in my accessories, from bags to jewelry.
Ok, so maybe it’s not the right time of year to be talking cashmere, but I’m so in love with this new-to-me line that I wanted to share it ASAP. Plus, the press release call this line “trans-seasonal,” and then again, it’s not quite Junuary, so maybe there’ll be a need for some cozy wear soon. Also, this collection is only available for pre-order, so when your purchase arrived in September, you'll be super ready for this kind of garment.
