We stopped by Fashion Night Out at The Bravern in Bellevue, WA this past Friday and can we just say, wow. Everyone came out decked in their best garb…Louboutins, Chanel bags and coats, over the top fur, even turbans. It was like a kid let loose in the candy shop when we got there. Champagne, hors devours, DJs, Neiman Marcus’ fashion show, nude fitness trainers wearing only paint and their skivvies. We were overwhelmed…we just wanted to take pictures of everyone. The crowds inhibited this a bit, but we were able to capture some great fashion. Here are some of our favorite looks in case you missed the festivities. Our suggestion? Don’t miss it next year. It is a fabulous time, even if it’s just for the eye candy.

We’re seeing a lot of military-inspired pieces out there and we are overwhelmed with excitement. We absolutely love the structured lines, the intricate details, and the rough-and-tumble feel it adds to any look. Here we are highlighting some of our favorite pieces, from bad-ass boots to tailored jackets.

We absolutely love the organic feel of TOMS shoes. They are laid back, yet many of the style can be dressed up or down. Not only are they effortlessly stylish, but they also support a great cause. For every shoe purchased, TOMS gives shoes to a child in need through its One for One Movement. And that, our dears, is fashion with purpose.

It is quite evident that Lindsay is a hair stylist at SEVEN Salon at the Pacific Place mall downtown. Her hair makes her stand out all on its own. But what really drew us to her was the ease of her denim jumper. We mean, come on…it looks SO comfortable. It’s a great piece that can be played up or down with the right accessories. Plus it has a very flattering neckline that counterbalances the wide legs.

We actually ran into Lauren at Pretty Parlor in Capitol Hill, a vintage-inspired shop that sells both secondhand and new items. We loved how her ensemble mixed eighties and grunge with the acid wash jeans and flannel shirt. We also discovered she is a personal shopper at Neiman Marcus in Kirkland and a stylist for Diane von Furstenberg. If you are ever in the area, we suggest you seek her out.
