Here are a few more photos in continuation of the last post!

We visited Powell bookstore. The first time I wanted to check out the design section to get my study on.

Dinner at a fancy butcher shop called Laurelhurst Market. I had the Tournedoes Rossini..so freakin good! I forgot what that drink is called but the ice smelled like smokey barbeque.

The next day of our Portland trip we headed to see the Pittock Mansion. I only anticipate it to rain and wore my wellies, but couple of flakes came down outside the window of Mother's Bistro (they have the most amazing matzo ball soup ever!) where we ate lunch. Just watching how the flakes fall made me smile.

This was a ceiling of one of the foyers, so amazing.

I love how they had a Christmas theme for the holidays. It was pretty fun to walk around and check out vintage fixtures they restored. Really wish we still use stove like those.

We were too busy playing with the snow and checking things out that I forgot about taking a full shot of my outfit. Pretty much the same few as the last post except with a Diane Von Furstenburg leopard print leggings, zara silk blouse, f21 houndstooth scarf and vest, and hunter wellington boots. My boyfriend bought the same color too so we had matching boots.


After going through couple of rainbows we finally reached Seattle. We only stopped by for a few hours before heading all the way back to CA. The public market center is 10 times better than the farmer's market here..in my opinion. They have 2 levels and lots of unique things.

I found an antique store up the hill and spent the remainder of daylight there. My boyfriend got upset because he really wanted clam chowder, but all the shops closed by the time I was done getting lost in the antique store. We asked a local where we could find good clam chowder and he directed us to Ivar's Acres of Clams.

Little did we know that it was right by the ferry trams. I was so enthralled by the fact that cars can drive onto a boat and drive off on the other side! So it was a semi success of visiting Seattle. BF got the best clam chowder ever made and I had a dozen oysters, and didn't do any sight seeing...but we did walk by this one store....

with lovely window displays! It really made me want to wear candy as art!

I have 2 more posts from my trip before I make any fashion posts from the current times, haha. I hope you all enjoy these!

You are adorable, my dear. I don't know how many times I'm going to saying that... haha.
Seattle looks beautiful! So fresh and bright and relaxing. It's been one of the places my friends and I have been talking about visiting and it seems worth the trip.
