i feel like it’s been a fairly eventful monday in terms of things that pique my interest. h&m posted that they next designer collaboration is with sonia rykiel. the good news is that we don’t have to wait until spring for this to see the pairing come to fruition. sonia rykiel is actually going to start with a lingerie (first ever in h&m history) collection this winter. on december 5th, 1,500 stores will debut the collection. i wish each collaboration was available in 1,500 stores. (i’m still on pins and needles about the jimmy choo collection and if it’s going to be available in seattle at all.) interestingly, this lingerie collection will not be exclusive to h&m. another first for the store is the collection will be made available in the select sonia rykiel boutiques as well as h&m locations. kinda crazy!
anthropologie also has some cool stuff going on in the near future. apparently anthropologie teamed up with the sundance channel to do a series following keith johnson, anthropologie’s world buyer, called man shops globe. i’m pretty sure it was sundance that did a behind the scenes show on the house of chanel gearing up for a fashion show and that was pretty awesome. instead of it being all about karl karl karl, they concentrated a lot of the focus on the couture seamstresses and even did an episode about some of the sourcing of materials. i’ve got high hopes for man shops globe and am superexcited about the launch party anthropologie is hosting at their downtown seattle location next thursday (the 8th) from 7p-9p. i plan on going. if you’re interested as well, you can rsvp at firstname.lastname@example.org. hope to see you there!
further reinforcing my high opinion of anthropologie is the fact that they are not only a dog friendly company/office, but they are hosting events throughout the month of october in 70 of their stores called sit, stay, love. during the sit, stay, love events there will be pet adoptions, food drives and yappy hour parties. seattle’s is at the downtown seattle location on october 22nd from 5p-8p. i plan on taking ruffus and pj. anthropologie has also created a line of canine inspired clothing to coincide with the sit, stay, love events but i don’t plan on touching that one with a ten foot pole. i love my dogs, i dress my dogs, but i will not be wearing dogs anytime in the near future.

the g2 luxe lounge at fox sports grill. 7p-12m. 9/24. i saw the g2 luxe lounge at the boutique culture warehouse sale. i’m not quite yet sure what to make of it. if i didn’t have a friend coming to town tomorrow i might attend. regular mortal tickets are $20 advance (apparently if you buy at the door and drop “thrillist” you will also get 4 drinks with your $20 entrance fee. so worth it!) vip tickets are $60 and includes food. (if you click the link it takes you to girl power hour, but boys are welcome to the g2 luxe lounge too.)
puyallup fair ends 9/27. i love the fair. nuff said.
seattle humane society walk for the animals/fido fest at u village. starts at 8a. 9/28. ruffus, pj, and The Boyfriend will be walking (i’ll be hobbling) a 5k path to raise money for the seattle humane society. then afterwards there are animal friendly festivities at u village, including adoptions. everyone should come support the animals!
bellevue fashion week at the bellevue collection. 9/29-10/4. i’m hoping to actually go to one local fashion event. >_< this one seems more worth it.
revival home and garden grand opening party. 5.30p-8.30p. 10/1. they’ve got a cool store currently down in georgetown and apparently they’re not doing too shabby since they just opened up a new location between pine and pike on 12th on capital hill. maybe i’ll finally find the second chair to go in the living room…
la rousse afternoon fashion fete at spa noir. 11a-2p. 10/4. la rousse was a cute boutique with an even cuter 3 legged dog that hung out in the store that used to be located at 3rd and virginia. alas, the brick and mortar shut down, but la rousse lives on via the interwebs. haven’t been to spa noir before but i’ve heard enough about it that i’m tempted.
hip zephyr girl’s night out. 6p-9p. 10/8. i went to one of these a few years ago and it was a pretty nice spread. couple different wines, some different flavors of mike’s, regular party foods like crackers, hummus, and veggies. hip zephyr is a boutique up on phinney ridge. kinda small but well chosen selection. of course, the highlight is the girl’s night out discount for attending.
