A Candid Conversation about the Future of Fashion in Seattle

Fall fashion is here and I recently had the chance to sit down with Sable Talley of
Stylishly Made to go over my Summer Retail Report and talk more about the state of fashion in Seattle. It’s no secret that COVID has been a major catalyst for many of the store closures around town and we haven’t hit the bottom yet. In our chat, Sable and I talk about everything from the spring cancellation of our signature Style Summit to how I’m coping with COVID as a business owner. PLUS, we offer up our best tips for brands on how to survive the holiday season.


Rock the Vote: Seattle Fashion Edition

It all started a few weeks ago when Michelle Obama proudly sported a gold necklace at the Democratic National Convention with the slogan “Vote”. That moment was a catalyst for many fashion fans to seek out stylish Vote merch in an effort to remind people to make their voices heard in the upcoming election. As Mrs. Obama points out, “Democracy continues with or without you.” Here’s a round-up of some of our favorite Vote merch from around town.
