Occasionally some combination of light and settings goes all crazy on my camera and I end up with these wild, gorgeous, colorful mistakes. Sometimes the things you don’t plan on end up being kind of amazing.

Before the days of face paint, sparkly spandex and embroidered windbreakers, winter sportsmen and women dressed in sportier versions of clothes they wore regularly.

Check out this fantastic set of historic photographs from the University of Washington Libraries Digital Collection, including incredible landscapes and action shots, plus some fashion gems like an old-school curling team, lady skiers in skirts and the dapper University of Washington ski team circa 1930.

And these two photos, just genius.

Spring Shopping Announcements

I’m not making it up – the birds are chirping in the morning, which means Spring is on its way. Accordingly, event calendars are starting to fill. Check out some great style events coming up, and stay tuned for a Spring fashion event hosted by yours truly….

DSS_Email-Feb23

The District Sample Sale is back – tix went on sale to past shoppers at 10 am. That means that those who attended in the past are snapping up tix right now….so I’m blowing the cover off of that in case you want to buy yours before the to-the-public date of next Tuesday (VIP tix are always the first to go). If you’ve never been, it’s really fun – great shopping but also a fantastic party. And as always, the charity is fantastic: City Dance Ensemble’s Early Arts program. Dance taught me, among other things, so much about respecting and loving my body, so I’m thrilled that they’ll be supported. As for the shopping, I’ll be sure to post some tips & guidelines for doing the DSS right next week. Buy tickets EARLY here.

I’ve been meaning to check out the shamelessly girly-sounding Bras & Brunch event that takes place once a month at Sylene (plus, love the retro bullet bra on the invite there). Invite on Facebook here, or call (301) 654-4200 or RSVP here.
