Every week, we round up what's been going on in Clementines and beyond in our Weekly Roundup.
Our in-store sale has expanded this week after we've added some last-season picks and limited sizes of some pretty fabulous boots. All sale shoes are marked down to either $39, $69, or $99, so come say hi to us while there are still some left!
This week we hosted B-E-A-T-A Design Studio, one of our favorite local female designers, for the Pioneer Square First Thursday Art Walk. Join us in-store on the first Thursday of every month for an intimate showing of our favorite designers, complete with drinks & nibbles.
Here's what's on our minds this week:
A CURRENT AFFAIR
Store owner Linda says, "Now in its seventh year, A Current Affair is a major source for stylists, designers, and anyone in search of one of a kind vintage ranging from perfectly worn-in jeans to rare and collectible designer vintage.
I've realized that my personal vintage collection is all about dressing up, not quite suited for pounding the pavement in search of unique finds - which I'll be doing alongside my pal, and Swan Dive business partner, Ali Brownrigg. My fall-back? Favorite jeans and a leather jacket. If anyone asked me what to wear to feel cool and powerful, this is the combo I'd suggest.
We're going to have so much fun!!! Saturday night we'll be having dinner at Chez Panisse - maybe I'll pack a fave dress from the '60's for the occasion? Standby for photos of the hunt for vintage!"
Store associate Pam loves the amazing local artist Kate Endle, another woman that has created a business from what she loves. "Two of my granddaughter's first books were Who Hoo Are You and What is Green. You can see her if you're lucky at the Pike Place Market and even if you're not so lucky on her website."
GOATS FOR GOOD
Store associate Jayma loved getting to meet all the goats at Thursday morning's Goats for Good petting zoo in Pioneer Square. Goats for Good is a project created by Tether and WE that's meant to support communities around the world by giving them goats, whose endless supply of milk can be used as a source of sustainable income.
MIISTA LORELLE VELVET BOOTIE
Lauren, our marketing gal, is all about the Miista. "The Lorelle bootie has been on my mind for a while but finally (and excitedly) took them home with me this week! I have been searching for a shoe for a friends wedding that calls for cocktail attire. Sure this sounds easy, but they also needed to be black, have about a two-inch heel, and be something that I LOVE and would wear many times over. Let me tell you, shoes that fit all those requirements are few and far between. Don't get me wrong, these have always been on the top of my mind, but I didn't think that a bootie was too formal. After some research, I determined that they are perfect for a cocktail event because of their sleek silhouette, pointed toe, and gorgeous velvet material. Alas, they are mine and I can't wait to pair them with a swiss dot shear and a black dress tonight! Stay tuned for pics."
ANDREW WYETH IN RETROSPECT
Store associate Stephanie spent her First Thursday at the Seattle Art Museum's retrospective Andrew Wyeth exhibition, the first major showing of his artwork since his death in 2009. His paintings feature cold, Pennsylvania landscapes and detailed portraits of Wyeth's neighbors, friends, and family, including his first muse Christina Olson and Helga Testorf, with whom he had a secret, fifteen-year-long relationship. The exhibition runs until January 15, and if you go on a First Thursday, tickets are half-off!
