Luly Yang Fashion Show

Last night Luly Yang showed her 2008 collection at the Paramount Theatre and pulled out all the stops: a gorgeous, Tom Douglas–catered event with cocktails and dessert, all benefiting Children's Hospital. The collection was beautiful, as always, with shades of Bo Peep, peacocks, and a finale party dress that lit up like an effervescent sea creature. The crowd went nuts!

Another highlight was the "real people" fashion show: Children's Hospital patients dressed to the nines and strutting their fine selves, and Luly clients wearing their own couture—including our own Melissa Coffman! (see blurred-out picture above right—my best shot out of, like, 10).

Melissa (also seen at left—the blue tweed lunch box she's holding is the night's goody bag: B&B hair products, journal, inspirational words from Luly, etc.) is the associate publisher at Tiger Oak, which publishes Seattle Bride. The picture’s no good so you'll have to trust me on this: girlfriend worked it. At the last minute she swapped out Luly Bondage Heels for a more streamlined, walkable pair, but it looked hot. As Carrie Bradshaw would say, "I likey!"

You look gorgeous gal! besides the visual tell me what was the ephemeral scent you wore to this event?
I could make you a bespoke perfume beyond your wildest dreams, a green couture scent that wraps you in pleasure, story and intrigue.
breathe in beauty,

That gorgeous gal is Melissa Coffman, associate publisher of Tiger Oak Publications! (I was there but not cat-walking like Mel, and wearing… hm… that's a good question! My scent—given the kind of day I had—at that directly-after-work-event was probably a mix of bike grease, printer's ink and discontinued KORS body lotion. Ephermal? Most likely not!)
