I knew one wonderful fashion blogger already – the ultra-cool Clothes Horse. Her sister’s a close friend, and she just happens to live near my new residence. So when she called me up and asked if I’d like to tag along to the meet-up, I said, “Sure!”
Lesson #1: The Clothes Horse is unbearably cute.
We started at Theo Chocolate, the only bean-to-bar, fair trade certified, organic chocolate maker in the United States. We toured the factory (which smelled DIVINE), tried chocolate in different stages of production (the ‘nibs’ are delicious!), and then got to taste test most of their amazing varieties of chocolate bars.
After that we browsed the Freemont Sunday Market just around the block. Lots of used and vintage items for sale, along with a great selection of arts and crafts. The people-watching was superb – I even spied some vendors in steampunk garb! It was an all-around good time. Best part: I met two other lovely bloggers – Eunice of What’s Your Tale Nightingale and Kam of needle + thread. Both ladies are very talented and fun…and you should follow the links and check them out! Also, if you’re a Seattle-area blogger and would be interested in a meet-up sometime soon, let me know.
En fin, bloggers = great, whatever their stripe or fancy. Also, cell phone cameras are not ideal. Many pardons for the photos. If you want to see cooler/better/fantastic photography, go follow those links I told you about.
Lesson #2: hair nets are never sexy.
