Art, Albums and Vintage Clothing

A couple of weeks ago–I can’t believe it’s been that long–I had two invitations for the same evening: One for an art show and the other for a store opening. Never one to miss out, I went to both. First hubby and I went to eat at an Indian restaurant in Issaquah, a quaint town just east of Seattle. I dressed for dinner, the art show, and the grand opening. orange and caramel

After dinner, we headed over to ArtEAST, an art gallery that also offers art classes. I’ve taken a couple of classes there and really had fun! On this occasion I saw a whole new batch of paintings, sculptures, and photos.

I enjoyed a lot of the works, along with a glass of wine, and then we had to leave.

The next stop was Seattle’s Phinney Ridge neighborhood, where Beats and Bohos was having a party. My friend and fellow blogger Citizen Rosebud sells vintage apparel on consignment from this shop and it was great to see her. Our mutual friend, stylist and blogger Catie Beatty was also there and we chatted and sipped on bevvies while we perused the displays.

Last stop of the evening was a nightcap at a well-known Seattle institution: Carmelita’s. This vegetarian restaurant is closing because its owners are retiring. I’m going to miss it so I said good-bye with a glass of sangria.

I’ve linked up with Lena B Actually, Rachel the Hat, and The Life of the Party. Have a look at what everyone else is wearing!

  1. Jean, it was so lovely to see you and your hubby at le Grand Opening at Beats and Bohos that night- so thankful you hit all the happening spots! You looked foxy and I look forward in running/hanging/sipping wine with you again soon!

  2. What a fun outfit! That is great that you don’t have fear walking where a train rides. Not I said the fox. Did you see “Fried Green Tomatoes?”

    Cute outfit for an evening at an art event! Your fox sweater looks great with the bright accessories and red skirt. Looks like a fun evening and lovely that you met Bella!

    I really enjoyed meeting you (and steering you & your hubby toward the wine) at the Beats and Bohos opening gala! Love that you pictured the rack that my daughter and I have at the shop, as we’re called Fox which totally goes with your fabulous look for the evening!!

  8. Love the fox sweater on you! I’ve been eyeing one that is similar. Such a fun trend!
