Neiman Marcus in Bellevue

Tonight is the Neiman Marcus Gala in Bellevue! I've decided to keep the Banana Republic dress sweet and simple with a floral headpiece. I don't know if a leather jacket would be appropriate for a "black tie" affair.

The press was given an sneak preview of the store, and all the new shops that will be opening in the Bravern on September 12th, 2009. I brought one of my favorite local bloggers, Kam, from Needle+Thread. She doubles as an excellent photographer. As we strolled around this enormous venue, I was excited to be among the "real" press like Seattle Times, Seattle Magazine, and NPR. However, I was brought back to reality when I had to leave the tour at 11:30 to go back to my "real" job working the front desk at a software company. If only I could write about clothes all day...

I can't wait to see how Neiman Marcus comes alive tonight! The energy from the clothes alone was enough to give me a 24-hour high. Since this is their first store in Washington, they decided to incorporate natural elements throughout. From the artwork to the wood installments, you could say that the shoe fits.






If you can't make it tonight, don't miss the Grand Opening of the Bravern this weekend! You'll be able to sip champagne while perusing this fall's Jimmy Choo collection and browse the annual beauty event at Neiman Marcus. Trophy Cupcakes will have delicious mini cupcakes to sample, and there's a perfect place to cozy up to live music by two outdoor fireplaces on the second floor. Just think about savoring complimentary Pan-Asian bites in Wild Ginger's upstairs bar... yum!! Shops like Anthropologie, Wolford, DNA 2050, Jimmy Choo, Brooks Brothers Country Club, Arthur, Tory Burch and Piazza Sempione will keep you fascinated with the latest fall trends. Though some shops are still under construction, and have inventory on the way, a dramatic transformation will take place over the next few days. There will be numerous in-store festivities and promotions all weekend long, so don't miss out!

I already had a cupcake from Trophy... and it literally disappeared in five seconds. I don't know what happened?!

Wow, you have such an enviable part-time gig! Oh and I'm with yah on the "real" job thing. But gotta love it coz it pays the shopping bills!
