Janell Shirtcliff (a true little vintage fashion genious) is starting a website showcasing vintage shopping, awesome career girls, photographers and photoshoots. When it's up you wont want to miss it!
One of the projects for the site is BUY A TICKET, where Janell and I buy random tickets to random places and review food, vintage shopping and night life through photographs! The vintage clothes she purchases will be avaiable to buy at her Lonely Dot site, pretty awesome!
Here is our first edition of buy a ticket
Fly Virgin whenever possible, always great service. On a random weekend trip to Seattle, upgrading to first class is only $75
Rent a car for Seattle
We stayed at the Ace hotel, it was the first Ace ever built, started in 1999. As Janell said it feels more llike an upscale youth hostile than a hotel. There is usually only one person on staff during the day, someone young and fun. they bring you a bucket of beer when you arrive. This unique boutique hotel in a historical building has many green, eco-friendly and sustainable elements, like vintage and re-purposed furniture. The design has been described as bohemian, organic and hip.
Capitol Hill is awesome, it's definitely where you wanna be when you are in Seattle. Oddfellows became our spot while we were there, great for breakfast and lunch and drinks at night.
Of all the vintage spots we shopped at Red Light was by far the best, with 2 levels of vintage clothes divided by decade. Janell got some amazing things for Lonely Dot!
Back at the hotel we had a few beers and Janell modeled some purchases for the site
