denim warehouse sale - this weekend!

ignore the danity kane reject in the flyer and pay attention to the details. this is a denim warehouse sale based in california and featuring thousands of sample jeans from the showrooms of lots of major denim designers. don't go there looking for that pair of sevens or R&Rs you've been eyeing at mercer - shopping at the warehouse sale is kind of like shopping at nordstrom rack, you might hit the jackpot finding a ton of great pairs, or you might not see anything you like. last time they were here, i picked up awesome pairs of hudsons, habituals and antik. try to go on saturday if you're not too hungover from halloween :)

queen anne restaurant veil closes curtains - this sunday

citizenrain.com: Veil to close this Sunday

i've only been there once. a lady got stuck in one of the unisex bathrooms and everyone thought it was noise from the apartments upstairs. she was locked in for like 20 minutes. poor girl. nevertheless, if you love food and love to support local businesses, make sure you roll through for one last hurrah!

the young & the banging

the young & the banging. no, i am not talking about myself. i am talking about my obsession of the moment. it started out with a crazed google search for nike sportswear (i know i'm late...whatever) and ended with me all over this project's website.

from youngandbanging.com:
THE YOUNG AND THE BANGING is a co-created yearbook project and gallery show that exposes popular and interesting communities from cities across the globe with a focus on the young people that make them tick. We handpick and invite both people and companies within those communities to work with us as partners to make our yearbooks and gallery shows happen.

the young and the banging's first city subject - NYC of course - was featured in a gallery show co-produced with nike sportswear.

awesome. we must bring them here to seatown. they would have a fucking ball at sing sing.

p.s. heron preston - let me use this pic for my new blog cover! i will love you forever!

touchdown animals

originally i was just going to post this because i thought it was cute that seahawks players were posing with rescued animals in the Pasado's Safe Haven Pro-Compassion Calendar. then i read the story of Pasado and how he inspired Susan Michaels to do her part in making sure animal cruelty is eliminated in washington state and i really had to cry.

visit pasado's safe haven to order your Pro-Compassion Calendar - but make sure you also read Pasado's story while you're there. it'll break your heart to know how many dbags are out there doing despicable things to animals. you'll also find out how you can help Pasado's Safe Haven's cause!
