Of course we visited some vintage shoppes.
There is less retro stores in Seattle than in Portland...
but they are bigger and cheaper!
We spent 3 days there so we had also time to play tourists!
And what to not miss in Seattle?
The SPACE NEEDLE!!!
Built in 1960 for the 1962 World's fair!
ATOMIC style with a fantastic view of the city!
We were a bit dissapointed that there was not a small exhibition about the world's fair...
even in the books store, it was hard to find souvenirs of the early 60's.
I would love to see vintage pictures, movies from the fair, original souvenirs (luckily we were able to see some in Seattle Antiques Malls)..
For example, the Atomium in Bruxelles from the 1958 world's fair presents exhibitions about the fair, about 50's design and architecture. The shop is all about the 50's.
But the view was better in Seattlle than Bruxelles...
We were lucky to have a sunny day...
But quite cold... I had to wear my "potatoes bag" coat...
That's how my husband calls it, because of its large cut...
but I like this 50's rain coat to travel: light, can fit every outfits, great for rain... not fancy but practical.
I must show you my new costume jewels, just received before departure!
This heart set is from Belle Lurette,
2 parisian ladies who are newly creating retro style brooches, earrings, necklace... I want them all!
Sylvain like to wear his new (to him) clothes as soon as he bought them...
So here is one of his new jacket, tie and tie bar!
Dapper, isn't he?
We also visited the famous public market!
Established in 1907, it's really pleasant to walk in its alleys.
We didn't know Seattle and discovering the city was really great!
Instead of Sylvain, I usually don't wear immediatly the clothes I buy... I keep them to be able to match at home with the best accessories...
My hubby found the gorgeous plaid 40's jacket in Red Light in Seattle!
We were planning to go to Vancouver but we didn't have enought time to go to Canada.
So it was time to fly for another adventure...
Have you ever visited Seattle ?
Do you like to wear clothes as soon as bought ?
