Anniversary Date

It’s hard to believe that December 24th marked my 8th wedding anniversary to hubby.

It’s a busy week, with Christmas and New Year in the mix, but we made time to get downtown to ride the Seattle Great Wheel, a 175-foot-tall waterfront Ferris wheel.

The views it offers are spectacular.

After riding the wheel, we wandered around downtown, peeking in storefronts and watching last-minute shoppers trying to complete their lists.

It’s hard to find places to eat dinner on our anniversary, because a lot of restaurants close early on Christmas Eve. Luckily, hotels are often the exception. We ate in the Boka Restaurant in the Hotel 1000. They had a great chickpea burger, which surprisingly went well with champagne!

drinksAfter dinner, we crossed the street to another hotel, the Alexis, and had a celebratory drink in their bar, called, oddly enough, The Bookstore.

I wouldn’t be a very responsible fashion blogger if I didn’t at least mention my outfit. Under my cozy pink scarf and warm, wool-free coat (by Vaute Couture), I had on this outfit.

  1. Happy Anniversary, Merry Christmas, Happy New Year!!!

    I love your coat, the colour is outstanding, as I’m sure you were in the crowd. I’m so glad that you have made me very fashion conscious of what I buy and where I spend my dollars.

    Fashion with compassion is so important because no living beings should suffer for fashion and beauty. Many people are unaware of the cruelty of the wool industry, they imagine sheep being gently sheared of their heavy wool, making the sheep’s life more pleasant, nothing could be further from the truth of the horror they endure.

    You look fabulous in this outfit, I really like your blouse worn with black blazer and black legging,very dramatic.

    I am looking forward to going on this grand Ferris wheel next time I’m in Seattle!

    Have a fashionable 2015!
    Wishing you health and happiness! ❤
