Seattle Style Bloggers Meet for Coffee

Saturday was a fun afternoon. Some of the Seattle Style Bloggers met for coffee and banter at Oddfellows Cafe in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood. Lindsay of Lindsay Living organized the event. In addition to Lindsay and me, Chelsea from Just Zipped, her sister from Short and Sweet, Catie from Fleur-d-Elise, Vivienne from Thrifted Shift, and the Citizen Rosebud were in attendance. I’d met a few of the bloggers before and it was great to meet the others–especially Citizen Rosebud, whose blog I’ve followed for a while now.

After coffee the seven of us wandered over to Kaleidoscope Vision, a wonderful vintage boutique (and more). The space is unlike any vintage store I’ve been in. It’s airy, bright and fresh. The pieces are artfully curated and the sparse racks of clothes are enticing.

I bought a 1970s lilac, crochet dress that will grace the pages of this blog any day now. The clothes, jewelry and shoes are rotated monthly so I’ll be back to see what else I can find next time.

We walked down Broadway and checked out Red Light Vintage (where I bought a slip for my new dress) and then crossed the street to Crossroads Trading Company. I found a few pieces there–a yellow maxi skirt, orange crochet top, navy silk skirt, and teal flares.

And what do style bloggers wear to a blogger meetup? Well, we all looked unique and stylish. Citizen Rosebud asked a passerby to snap a photo. You can see it on Rosebud’s amazing recap of the day. In the meantime, here’s what I chose to wear on a sunny, slightly cool, Seattle day.

    • So glad to have finally met you! The lilac dress will make an appearance soon, I promise. See you at the next meetup (or any time you feel like trying a Slayer-made espresso in Ballard).

Let's chat! I love hearing from you:
