Southern In Seattle – New Blog

SIS

I am excited to announce I have a new blog! I will continue to write on this blog, of course! However, I felt I needed to make a special connection to the Pacific Northwest. After all, few people in Seattle know Bethany Siggins. Why should they read what I write? I explain why I am writing the new blog here. I would love to have you follow SouthernInSeattle (just as you have faithfully followed me here – thank you so much).

Also, it would be amazing to have you follow my new SouthernInSeattle Instagram page. Starting an Instagram page from scratch is daunting!

My first blog post on SouthernInSeattle is about Visette Boutique in Capital Hill. Dresses are an integral, important part of a woman’s wardrobe in the South. I love that Visal Sam is bringing beautiful dresses to Seattle. It’s a gem of a store, and she’s a gem of a person.

I greatly appreciate your support, your comments and your believing in what I do. Have a fantastic week, and speak to you again very soon!

Warmly,

Bethany Siggins

Angela Scott in Chicago

On my way to Chicago recently, I noticed shoe designer Angela Scott posted on Instagram from the stainless steel sculpture Cloud Gate in Millennium Park (aka the Chicago Bean).  She invited anyone viewing the post to come see her at Neiman Marcus that evening. You don’t have to ask me twice!

As soon as I landed and picked up my bag, my brother Edwards and I made our way downtown for the soiree where we found the second floor shoe salon bustling with lovely Chicago fashionistas.  Neiman’s, as always, was a wonderful host, wining us, stuffing us with sweets and giving away a pair of designer shoes to one lucky person. Sadly, I did not win.

IMG_0832Fashion blogger Jennifer Worman of Red Wine & Red Soles gave a short presentation about spring shoe styles she loves, followed by a short talk by Angela who was looking quite California laid-back chic.  IMG_0842Angela could not have been nicer.  She told me a funny story of her recent world travels, and she admitted she was ready to be home after a long time on the road.

Enjoy photos from the evening! (Apologies for my jet-lagged appearance!)IMG_0877IMG_0848
