And so it begins....

Tonight Nordstrom kicked off Bellevue Fashion Week with a bang! On the agenda was a shopping preview and a runway show of several high end designer pieces.

Some of my favorite items were the L.A.M.B shoes - they were so pretty. Like little pieces of art on your tootsies... I need them!

We arrived for the 6:30pm VIP reception where we snapped pictures of the bags and shoes displayed for the guests to peruse. The drink of the night was this yummy pink concoction called the Fashionista. The appetizers were being passed by super friendly wait staff - who we found out were not only nice to look at but some were actually models too. (Hi Matthew from TN and Denise who came with her roommate - you guys were so nice to chat with! Thanks for hooking us up so many times with yummy appetizers!)

While sitting and noshing, we met some lovely ladies and chatted with them until it was time to go in for the show at 8pm. I had taken a bunch of images pre-show but the runway show was what I was most anxious about - time to test out the new camera! I'm still learning the new camera so bear with me. I don't claim to be a "photographer" but I try my best to get photos that will let you, the reader, feel like you were there. Check them out here!

Dawn will give you her notes on the highlights of what went down the runway, click on over to her blog and check it out.

Stay tuned as we'll be blogging all weekend and next week on what is happening over on the East side for Bellevue Fashion Week (BFW)!

Nice post Tarah. Sounds like you had fun!

Wondering how one would feel the next day after a couple of those "yummy pink drinks" ...

I can only imagine it wouldn't be a good feeling. The drinks were delicious though, they tasted like delicious sweet candy.
