The sun is out, the weekend is long, and my mid morning cup of tea on our deck was extra special today. The reason? There is a fabulous story in the Seattle Times called “Seattle bloggers make their own fashion statements” and YLF is included. 

Janet Tu of the Seattle Times interviewed us for the story a few months ago. Janet had also attended a YLF clothing swap earlier in the year, and photographer Ellen Banner accompanied me on a short shopping trip with one of my clients.

There are two other Seattle fashion bloggers pictured in the article and they look great. Be sure to check out Abiola Akanni of Bora Bora Style and Carolyn Yuen of Hey Pretty Thing. Also look out for forum members Sheila, Julie and Aida in the photo of us walking through Seattle on gathering day. Super cool.

Big thank you to amazing Bei-Jing for being so patient during the photo shoot and for looking her usual glam self. Thanks also to Janet for writing a wonderful article and Ellen for taking fabulous photos (click on the online pictures to see them enlarged).

My favourite part of this article is seeing our YLF muse Rosie pictured with us (online version only) as we show The Times our site at YLF Headquarters. Of course, our little Jasmine is in our hearts and with us all the way.
