My friend, June, has a wonderful dress. When I admired it, she told me it was by Una. I told her about my Una skirt and we exchanged stories. Una is a local Seattle company.
June recently interviewed Susan Fedore, the designer behind the Una label. You can hear the interview on June’s blog, The Sustainable Fashionista. She also tipped me off to a trunk show featuring Una at Velouria. If June wasn’t off getting married, she would have joined Cheryl, Karena and me at the show.
I wore my Una skirt to the event.
Here’s a detail of the wonderful ladder stitching on my skirt, and the skull pin I bought at Urban Craft Uprising:
Velouria is a great boutique in Ballard, a Seattle neighborhood, that features local designers and artists. At the trunk show, I got to meet Susan Fedore. She was great to talk to and I’m happy to report that I bought an Una dress and skirt.
Cheryl bought two great tops by Una. Then we went to Moshi Moshi Sushi for dinner and drinks. After dinner, we stopped by Lucca Great Finds, where Karena bought loose tea in an intriguing tin and I bought stackable stretchy bracelets. Lucca is a wonderful curio shop filled with paper goods, vintage finds, jewelry and glassware. I could spend all day in there.
Shopping for locally made goods, eating dinner with friends, and having good drinks along with great conversation is my definition of a fun evening. I hope you had a fun evening too.
