Spring is Right Around the Corner at My Dressing Room

February 4th, 2013 by Laura Fonda

It may not seem very Spring-like lately – we were promised a sunny weekend, but the fog decided to stick around and ruin those plans. However, this Friday, February 8th, at local boutique My Dressing Room, you can get a peek at Spring via a trunk show featuring Neesh clothing and a free glass of bubbly.

The Neesh Spring 2013 Trunk Show is free and runs from 3pm-9pm at My Dressing Room (1817 Queen Anne Ave N). Plan spending a Friday afternoon or evening on Queen Anne Ave N, stop in at this Queen Anne boutique and other shops as well – shop local!

Reader Bruce Wilson sent in this photo, taken Saturday morning. I think it’s kind of surreal looking, don’t you?
