Night at the Museum
Our Favorite Things at Future Beauty
SAM invited Baby and Co. owner Jill Donnelly and Seattle Met style editor Laura Cassidy to show you their picks in and around Future Beauty.
The question is not if you've seen Future Beauty yet (because of course you have), it's how many more times you plan on seeing it before it goes to its next stop.
How about this: strolling through en masse. En very stylish masse.
Have you met Donnelly? What a force. What style. And such perspective. Having spent twenty-plus years navigating Seattle retail, worldwide trends, and authentic European style, she's truly an expert. She's also a lot of fun.
The Favorite Things tours are just what they sound like: A group walk-and-talk through the collections led not by a museum insider, but by a member of the community. (Or in our case, members.)
And while the exhibit of the moment is definitely the one with all the amazingly relevant yet breathtakingly historical Japanese fashion in it, it's going to be really fun to freewheel through the joint with stops in the gold gallery and the abstract expressionist halls to draw parallels and perpendiculars about color stories, formal lines, and the esoteric pursuit of beauty.
SAM's Community Night Out basically makes good on the proverbial something-for-everything, and it's free.
So ... See you there?
