The Biggest Clothing Swap in the Northwest

Posted by Marjorie Skinner on Thu, Apr 17, 2014 at 8:59 AM

I'm not gonna vet the claim that the clothing swap coming up on Sunday, April 27 is "the biggest" within a particular geographical area. It's big, you say? Good enough for me. I love a good closet purge; I'm a firm believer that clearing back the rubble to streamline and assess is just as important as adding to your wardrobe. So, all's you gotta do is round up want, need (or fit!)—clean with no holes or weird smells, please, and shoes and other accessories are also welcome. Your bag of discards and five bucks will get you in the door, where you can grab a cocktail while you judiciously peruse the options to trade in for.

Give More Lip!

Posted by Rose Finn on Sat, Feb 9, 2013 at 8:59 AM

There's nothing quite like being out with your Valentine's date, wanting to kiss them, but realizing your lips have shriveled into a couple of yellow raisins. Event Cosmetics, a cosmetic studio on SW Broadway specializing in make-up for special events, is hosting a lip product sale, from February 12th-16th (perfect timing!).

Also, if you're in the mood for a little more beauty help than just lips, they'll be giving out a FREE lip and cheek palette, and tote bag with every purchase of a Clarisonic Cleansing System. With such a youthful, pampered face, your date won't even notice that you've ordered four martinis on his bill!

The Fashion of Our Lives

Posted by Rose Finn on Fri, Nov 23, 2012 at 10:16 AM

"What's better than a fashion show?" some might ask? Getting paid to go to a fashion show, that's what!

Cotton Incorporated (the corporation "of our lives") is sponsoring a nationwide search for the coolest street style. Amongst the 48 finalists chosen by "Fashion Influencers," one person per each of the 6 regions across America will win a weekly prize of $1,440 (an incredibly arbitrary amount), and an all-expenses paid trip to the 24 Runway Show next year put on by Cotton. Here are some samples, to get your creative juices flowin':
