Southern In Seattle – New Blog


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!

Kendra Scott Gives Back

Bethany2013haircutI recently attended a fundraiser for a friend of a friend at Dallas’ Kendra Scott boutique in the West Village where I picked up the lovely yellow drop earrings I am wearing in this blog photo.  I am having a yellow moment to be sure.  Let’s see, so far I have picked up a pair of neon yellow high heel suede loafers, an oversized vegan sunshine yellow purse, a short sleeve scoop neck yellow t-shirt, wedge espadrilles with happy yellow fabric straps and said Kendra Scott earrings.

Upon my purchase at the store, my first acquisition of Kendra Scott by the way, I received a card detailing “Kendra Gives Back Parties.”  In short, they give 20% of sales proceeds back to your cause.  All you have to do is contact your local Kendra Scott store and they’ll take care of the rest.  How wonderful is that?  In a world that seems to be only about “me, me and me,” it is nice to know some companies still remember that without others, “me” wouldn’t be successful.

Not only do they do fundraisers, but Kendra Scott hosts company parties, school drives, philanthropic events and other social mixers.  Give them a call and see if the two of you can partner on your next event.

Let’s remember our blessings and our abundance.  Follow the example of Kendra Scott.  Live a life in service to others, and you will never go without.
