Fremont, Seattle

Oct 16, 2013



The neighborhood Fremont is an interestingly quirky place- and rightfully so, seeing how their motto is "the freedom to be peculiar". So, ya know, I fit right in there ;) While there we roamed the blocks and poked our heads into kitschy shops that sold knick-knacks, lunched on meat pies, clambered over trolls, and sat by the river way, soaking up the fickle sun. If I actually knew Seattle before I moved here, I'd so pick Fremont to be my home. But me blindly picking my apartment through Craigslist did not lead me in that direction, haha!

Also, if you want to see my other Fremont posts and pictures, check them out here and here


And on a more sartorial note, I have been going nuts with this Voyeur Vintage turtleneck. In the last post that I wore this, I mentioned that I first nabbed it because it so reminded me of Jane Fonda in Barefoot in the Park, and ever since then I can't veer away from the retro feel of it. Every time I style it I go for a super mod look, which has been really fun. Luckily, this time around I didn't accidentally dress as Velma ;) Though...have I just found my Halloween costume in that one? Below is how I styled this Voyeur Vintage top last time


And since I nabbed this mustard number, here are some other favorites Voyeur Vintage has to offer:

  14. Ah I love Fremont! When I lived in Seattle I worked in Fremont for a while for a cell phone company. It was long commute from Capitol Hill. Sometimes I really miss living in Seattle. But I will admit I don't miss the rain. The rain drove me nuts after a while.
