Just so you feel like you're in the loop on my time in Seattle:
I know that we had a very firm agreement about waterfall cardigans being some sort of death knell of fashion but whoops I went and bought one. It's a wool blend and washable, what can I say, I was cold. It was raining sideways and that is bullshit. I removed that dickish belt and threw it in the garbage can outside the store. I feel a crucifixion coming on. Bring it. I paid sales tax at H&M, you heard right.
I tried this on and it felt half-right but I couldn't get over the feeling of having horses all over my body. Big horses all over my tits and ass. Also, tunics, really? They make me want to say GTFO every time I see them. I may regret this decision. Time will tell. It's still available online, relax. And also sales tax. Thumbs down Washington.
Seattle, what the fuck are you doing with an All Saints before a Zara? I am confused. I don't know how many mid-range-affording-Rick-Owens-striving fans live in the entire metro area but it can't be enough to keep this store alive. I've seen their shoes so I know. Zara on the other hand...get on it! I need a real reason to visit Seattle and the internet is making your entire city superfluous to me.
My new best scent, I got it at Blackbird. That store keeps growing and growing into this perfect cottage industry. They only employ the most finely groomed urban lumberjacks available. Ballard is now officially too hip for words. Where's the next burgeoning neighborhood Seattleites? Is it White Center?
P.S. I ogled the Céline bags (no inner pockets!) at Barneys and saw how ridiculous those Alaïa boots look in person. So many women with expensive taste, wearing the worst shoes. The shoe department was a ghost town. All the women buy ugly scarves at Barneys. It's pandemic. What's the point in money if you're going to buy garbage? Donate it to charity instead of shopping at Barneys and then taking the escalator up to Chico's. Seriously lady, I saw you do it and gross. Just gross.
Are all rainy cold locales plagued with this, can anyone speak for the UK? They seem to have it figured out. Am I just projecting my false hope?
