Fashion + Beauty: Frenchy’s introduces grape-based treatments from France, our favorite new handbag and The Vintage Closet re-opens

Let’s get over the midday, midweek slump with some cheery news: The Vintage Closet has emerged from its recent remodel and is now open again for your boot needs. One of my least best kept secrets, the revamped little Closet now has room for 200 vintage boots on the new, Western-style shelves. Grab your cash, and scoot over there.

Our February issue is now on the newsstands and in addition to the Space Needle, the Bubblelator and other fun by-products of the World’s Fair, I have a serious gush fest in the pages over Dawn Smithson’s impeccable new Moth and Crow handbags (pictured above).


Paris-based Caudalie Vinotherapie Spas have debuted in the Northwest, offering their revered grape- and grapevine-based spa treatments at Frenchy’s in Madison Park. The five different treatments (four facials and a massage option) available starting today have been formulated by the specially-trained Caudalie team and use grape seed and vine polyphenols to pack in a mean antioxidant punch, perfect to combat dry winter skin.
