all over the place!

thanks to the power of networking on Twitter, i have gotten to know a few really great ladies here in the city over the past few months. one of them is Kim of Boutique Culture who graciously offered me the chance to guest post for their blog. Of course i had to feature my favorite boutique in Seattle and a vendor at this weekend's Boutique Culture Warehouse Sale - Moksha. Read my interview with Moksha's Aleph Geddis here!

Another one of my Twitter friends is Jordana of Clutch 22, social media & style maven, absolute sweetheart and one of my blog heroes. She's just posted a feature on yet another fave Twitter lady, Seattle eco-designer Sara Seumae of Spun. did i mention there's a giveaway for a SPUN tank? get on it! in this feature you will see a familiar face modeling Spun's Diane wrap dress remixed by Tara Smith of Revival Ink with a beautiful unicorn.

Truly honored to know these ladies!


a city girl on forks...

this weekend my bf is hiking around Forks & La Push - and for a Twilight freak such as myself, this is kind of a big deal. if you were paying any attention during the movie, you will remember Edward's comment: "Why did you move to the wettest place in the continental U.S.?"

Well, whether hot Cullen is correct or not, while perusing Karmaloop i took it upon myself to find a few pieces i would take along if i were with bf now, traipsing around Twilight stomping grounds:

"the wettest place in the continental U.S." calls for...
The RVCA slicker

because a Northwest girl can never have too many fleeces
The Burton Darling fleece

in case i feel the urge to jump off a cliff...this won't fall off
The Selina onepiece
