The Seattle Sartorialist

By 12/05/2010January 23rd, 201711 Comments
It was a stunning day for Christmas Shopping in Seattle with my mom and sister today.  We went down to Pike Place Market for lunch and ended up on the wharf having a picnic on the bench, (my 1 year old nephew was with us).

I saw these fabulous and happy boots that I had to photograph along with the beautiful woman wearing them so I’m being the Sartorialist today.  Her name is Arissa Rench and she is a professional organizer. She found them in a local boutique called Clementine Shoes here in Seattle.  Click here to get to my Facebook Fan Page if you want to see one of the coats I bought on my last shopping trip here with Angie at You look Fab!
Hope you are having a Happy Weekend!

    Dear Maria,

    You were in my husband's favorite haunts! I had suggested to you, a few months back, to shop at the Piers at Pike's Place because it was so fun and unique. You were asking for suggestions for place to shop in Seattle. My husband grew up in Issaquah, a suburb of Seattle. We have been there for family vacations, about three or four times over the last twenty years. And in the next five, we plan to move there. This is hubby's home town. I ADORE Seattle!!! It's just plain gorgeous and the shopping is so unique…priceless! I love the piers especially. I've always known that this Texan gal was on 'borrowed' time because I married a Seattleite. Tim loves the Pacific Northwest. In fact, he has a lot of family in that area. We plan to retire there. I don't feel old enough to retire anywhere…I'm only 47…but we are for sure…going to move to Seattle. I owe it to him. We only ended up in Texas by accident (at least on HIS part). I made a Pacific Northwest Indian Button Blanket and won Best of Show for it but it was a Christmas gift for his brother's wife, a native indian of Washington. (I'm won of the few people who actually knows how to do that and knows what that is.) Mary is a lawyer in DC now, but her tribe is from Washington State. I know Washinton..very well…Seattle in particular…because that is where Dear Hubby grew up. He loves it..and has never quite acclilmated to Texas. How can I blame him? Poor thing. I owe him the next twenty years in Issaquah. The big question is what will I call my blog? Comin' Home is so very Texan. Tee-hee! I'm sure I will come up with something. In the meanwhiles, enjoy your shopping trip. I LOVED shopping on the piers and eating at the great places their. My favorite shop was Ye' Old Curiosity Shoppe and my favorite place to eat on the piers was a Fish and Chips place which I can't remember the name of, but my mouse is losing battery power so I have to go… Someday, I know we are going to meet in person! You are so close to my hubby's home town!

    You make an excellent Sartorialist, Maria. Those are KILLER boots!

    But you looked just as fabulous in your smashing new blue coat, scarf and purple booties – and I had a ball with you over tea yesterday.



    While I am enjoying exploring our new city (Chicago), just the mention of Pike Place Market makes me weepy. I love Seattle.

    Not a fan if the boots, but that's ok! Everyone should do their own thing. I do love the leopard coat though! 🙂 Everyone should have a little animal print in their lives.
