Humanities heart and social science mind. I am a twenty-two year old writer with a passion for John Galliano for Christian Dior, beautiful and tragic villains, handwritten notes, and film photography. 

I believe that:
  • Fashion is art. Art is life.
  • "Magic exists in the attempt of understanding someone and sharing something."
  • Villains are the heroes of their own narratives.
  • Lana del Rey sounds like nostalgia and the disillusionment of innocence lost.
  • Stories are how we understand who we are and where we come from.
  • Coffee tastes best when it's cold and rainy.
I started this blog in 2013 so I could share my passion for fashion; I posted my favorite fashion editorials, ad campaigns, and runway shows. Even though I don't write about fashion anymore, I still post reviews of my favorite works of filmliteraturetelevision, and other daily obsessions, sporadic journal entries, and travel adventures months overdue.

All post material—photographs, writing, etc.—is my original content unless a specified source is noted; for images, credit is found either at the end of each post or in the caption space. I edit most of the images that appear on this blog in Adobe Photoshop CS6. If I have misidentified a source and/or you are the rightful owner of an image and would like me to remove it, please let me know.

I always reply to comments left on my blog within a week (usually within 24 hours). Inquiries may be sent to seattleitefashionista(at)gmail(dot)com; you can also find me on Twitter and Instagram.
