Harvey (owner of HUNT in Columbia City, Seattle),
looking very Italian on this sunny day.  A nice jacket
takes any look up a notch.

A great blazer is a workhorse for your wardrobe.
Look for a trim fit in the waist and good structure in
the shoulders.  Any neutral color(black, gray, blue)
will go with all your jeans.

Your glasses are part of your wardrobe, an important accessory -
make them count, choose frames that reflect your style.

Details matter.

When you juxtapose you take your style to a higher level.
Contrasting pieces worn together creates interest
and personalizes your look.


*Distressed jeans with Italian loafers
*Rolled up shirt sleeves with a suit vest
*Wear jeans, wear a tie

Daily chic is easy with a few
"go to" pieces. Maximize
your combinations.

 Gold hoops are the perfect accessory, adding a luxe
touch to any look.

Some of my clients request
thrifting as an option for
their shopping sessions.

Look for quality pieces,
and don't be afraid to
visit a tailor with
your found treasures.
Take your time if you are thrifting for your wardrobe.

Wear clothes that are easy to change in and out of.

Bring your list so you can buy strategically, but
make space for a possible surprise.

No worries if you want to "test drive" 
something - if the price is right, and
you decide it doesn't work for you,
pass it along.

Somebody got to take home
two pairs of posh loafers -
(Gucci and Kenneth Cole
New York!)
Light denim with a black jacket, super cool.

Brightly colored jeans, sweater
with a fresh white tee.
Casual, not sloppy.
It was a good day.

Seattle street style.  The LBD (little black dress) is always right.

One of the "go to" pieces in your wardrobe, the LBD, can be dressed up or down.

Ways to wear it:

*Sleeveless, with heeled sandals in the Spring/Summer
*With a little black jacket to create a suit
*With cool ankle boots and a tough jacket
*With flat sandals and an asymmetrical cardigan
*With a wide cinch belt
*For dressy dinner with pumps and bold jewelry

Look for a close to the body fit so that your LBD defines your
silhouette, and serves as the perfect building block for
your look.

I'll see you on the street.
