Mondays, Maggie Muses: Small Independent Retail


Curtis Steiner Jax  Joon, and Hotel Ballard,  Coastal Living Magazine July/August 2014


This Monday I am musing about retail. Small retail. Independent retail. I feel the need to spread the word about how essential small business is to the retail culture. Sure, you can buy everything you could ever want with your Amazon Prime account. But really, doesn’t it take all the fun out of the shopping experience when all you have to do to buy something is click a button?

So I am reccommending that you go to your neighborhood corridor and visit those small independents the next time you need some retail therapy. Heck, if you’re travelling, seek out those independent shops! Go to the Ballards, Lower Eastside, and Pearl Districts of the world. Find out where the locals go. You will be inspired and have a fond keepsake of that trip you took to Spain because you bought something special and unique from that funky small shop in Sitges.

So without getting on my soapbox about why we all need to support small retailers, how it would be a much sadder world without them, let me just show you images of some fantastic shops from around the world instead. Ready?

Pretty fantastic, right? Please support your small and independent retailers. They are what make shopping so fun! Have a great start to your week! – xo ~ Maggie

What to Wear Wednesday: How to wear Summer Plaid

Each Wednesday we’ll answer the on-going question: “What do I wear with these?”  It’s a question we get quite often here at the shop and we love giving suggestions when helping our customers. 


What to Wear with Plaid

What to Wear with Summer Plaid

Our weather in Seattle tends to be sort of unpredictable to say the least, especially this time of year. So for this week’s WDIWW,  we thought we would focus on different ways to wear plaid. Part punk rock, part grunge, part country it’s an easy, casual trend to wear that can be easily adapted into a summer wardrobe. The key to making it casually cool is to pair them with warm neutral shoes and accessories. On not so sunny days pair them with jeans and and booties or some buttery soft oxfords. For the warm weather days wear a pretty plaid dress with a pair of tan low heel sandals. So tap into the Pacific Northwest vibe and try wearing some plaid this summer.
