”Seattle thinks it’s Paris but it’s really Dubuque…….I will say this for Seattle, though. One of the things I like is that nobody cares what you’re wearing or how you’re dressed.” -Dan Savage

What is to be said about the fashions in Seattle? This has been a huge topic of discussion since I moved out West. Everyone wants to know what I’m doing as a Fashion Designer living in an area that invented grunge. Not going to lie – sometimes I wonder myself!!!!

For example, I attended a great event last Wednesday at the Bellevue Hyatt.  Here’s the info from their online invitation:  Girl Power Hour is hosting their annual Anniversary Party during Fashion Week at The Bellevue Collection; featuring a night of fashion, stylish networking, philanthropy and social glam sponsored by Verizon!

And this is what I wore (for those of you that don’t know me – I’m the one in the middle)

Pretty fancy, no?  For the most part, everyone was dressed in cocktail to formal attire.  I even saw a few men in three piece suits (yum!!!!).  But unfortunately the fashion statement that stood out more than the others was JEANS!!!  I am a firm believer of dressing to your comfort zone….. but I felt that blue denim at an event such as this was not acceptable.  But then again, I think it’s inappropriate to wear pajamas in public – and TONS of people do this.  Was I off base in my shock and distaste?

It just makes me wonder – does Seattle really want to be known as the place where you can wear anything?  Or do we want to join the rest of the world in dressing appropriately to the event which you’re attending?
