Mini meetup with Laura (rhubarbgirl)

Laura (rhubarbgirl) is in town for a writing conference this weekend, and I was able to meet up with her for some yummy food and great conversation. We hit up a favorite little north sound sushi place and chatted about everything from fashion to weather to travel to hockey. I should've taken a photo of our food, it was just as pretty as it was yummy! We made sure to have at least one roll with some salmon and cream cheese, which is apparently a PNW thing.

Shortly before leaving I remembered to ask our server to snap a photo and of course had to request that he get us head-to-toe ;) Laura was wearing a cream blazer over a teal top (a really flattering shade on her), lovely fluid wide leg trousers, brown leather accents, and a pretty print scarf that picked up on all the shades in the outfit. I wore a gray patterned sweater, flared jeans, zebra belt and cream booties. Will post a proper WIW later, but for now I wanted to share our cute restaurant snap.

It was wonderful to get to meet Laura and chat over sushi and tea! I'm really filling out my YLF forum member checklist, I've been lucky in meeting so many wonderful women over the last few months.

    Awww . . . I love this. Your meal sounds amazing, as does the location. I live in a beautiful part of the world but also fell in love with the PNW after a trip there 15 years ago. I keep thinking one day I will have an opportunity to get back. You both look really good. Laura's hair is beatiful in this picture and she both bookended and coordinated her belt and shoes! She needs a big chunky watch in gold for this look! I think it is hilarious you both showed up in similar tones. Aida, I love the sweater and belt pairing. I need to be less overwhelmed by patterns!

  • Suzanne (ambergreen) replied 6 years ago

    Coolness. Check out that PPL on both of you! (And mmmm, sushi!)

    Isn't it funny about the full-length photo I always think photos have to be, but yes, not everyone thinks that way at first, even if asked for a pic specifically of what you're wearing.

  • MsLuna replied 6 years ago

    You ladies are looking faaaab!

  • Diana replied 6 years ago

    Fun! Thanks for sharing.

  • Debbie replied 6 years ago

    You both look wonderful! How fun that you got to meet up.

  • Laura (rhubarbgirl) replied 6 years ago

    It was wonderful to meet Aida, and I'm only sorry I wasn't in the area longer to get to meet more of the Seattleites. I believe this was my first YLF meetup and it won't be my last!

    True confession: the pants I was wearing started unraveling a hem by midday, so by the time I got out of the conference and went to meet Aida the hem was being held together by the sole safety pin I had with me. Real life: super-glamorous. :)

  • Isabel replied 6 years ago

    It makes me so happy to see members joining up. You two look lovely .


  • replied 6 years ago

    Awww, Laura, we all have our little fashion emergencies! You would never know from the picture and your confident smile that your hems were raveling away (just call it RATE)! I love your glossy long hair! It seems like you grew it out so quickly. *jealous*

    Aida, hooray for mini-meets! I am swooning over your flares--are those the Love Story jeans? They are fantabulous with the pointy-toe heels. *sigh*

  • Aida replied 6 years ago

    Glad I could share a little of our evening with you gals ^^

    Laura, hah well I had no idea! Clever fix, and good thing you had at least the one safety pin.

    Claire, yep these are the Love Story jeans. Still a half inch too long, but I'm making do until I get unlazy enough to take them back to the tailor for a second hemming.
