Red carpet fashion in Bellevue
There are very few red carpet events in the Northwest. The Bravern – home to Neiman Marcus and Jimmy Choo shoes – in Bellevue rolled out the carpet for a V.I.P. Fall for Fashion party Friday night.
I was invited to the event, but didn’t go. Getting up at 2 a.m. every day wears on me and by Friday night all I want to do is relax at home. That’s my excuse.
Bellevue’s beautiful people intimidate me. That’s my insecurity.
I realize it’s silly when I think about it. The people who are in these photos are very nice and generous, especially my friend Jenni Hogan in the first picture below wearing a stunning blue cocktail dress. She’s the most down-to-earth Seattle television personality you could ever meet.
It’s funny how we hang on to images of ourselves from childhood, even though they’re no longer valid when we’re adults. I’ve now lived in a city longer than I lived on the Midwest farm where I grew up. Still, I tell myself I’d be more comfortable on a tractor than on a red carpet.
What insecurity or image of yourself from childhood do you hang on to today?
Thanks to Duell Fisher – above, looking great with the pink tie – and Team Photogenic NW Inc for the use of their pictures from the event!
