Stitch Fix March 2017

Well, it’s March. And if I’m being perfectly honest, it’s already been a bit of a weird month. I should have known something weird was up when I awoke to a snowy sight earlier this week. It’s not often it snows here in Seattle, but fortunately for you, it made an appearance just in time for my monthly Stitch Fix photos. ;) As usual, I have another Stitch Fix review to help kick off the month!

Casual Spring Outfit + Shopbop Sale Favorites

The weather has yet to make up its mind whether March is going to be more winter weather or if spring is on the horizon. Call me confused when one day we’re greeted with the sun and beautiful blue skies and the next day there’s snow on the ground. It’s times like these that my outfits from day to day seem like I’m dressing for two completely different climates, and that’s probably because I am!

During this awkward time between winter and spring, I find my wardrobe to be in limbo. I’m hesitant to wear skirts and dresses without tights for fear of freezing to death and pulling out some of my spring favorites like denim jackets and shirts, pastels, and light materials seem too soon.

5 Easy Ways to Create Edgy Outfits

When asked to describe my style, I often think in seasons. When I think fall, I think of the colors of leaves, 70s inspired dresses, and suede jackets. When I think winter, I often picture menswear inspired ankle boots and my (faux) leather jacket, the essential pieces for edgy outfits. Spring is romantic, and summer is bohemian. My personal style and what I gravitate towards is impacted by the color weather and my mood, and when winter rears its cold head, I often gravitate towards the more “edgy” pieces in my closet.

5 Easy Ways to Create Edgy Outfits

I recently attended Seattle’s Wedding Show as a guest of Safeway and Albertsons, and wore this exact outfit. I received so many comments about it as I walked through the shows that I figured it was worth recreating and documenting on the blog. Perhaps the vendors just wanted to get my attention (no, not getting married yet, however it did give me a lot of ideas if I were! ;)). Either way, I love this outfit because it’s comfortable yet edgy, and can be worn for a variety of occasions and events. Continue reading

Day to Night with 7 Charming Sisters

Even though Valentine’s Day has come and gone, that doesn’t need you need to pack away your red hues and date night outfits quite yet! There’s still time to celebrate the love you have with your significant other, family, friends or even your favorite critter. After all, shouldn’t we be celebrating the special moments in our lives every day?

With love in mind, I couldn’t think of a better piece than a slinky velvet midi dress to create the foundation for a night out on the town. Of course, if you’re like me, you probably wouldn’t wear an outfit quite like this to work, so I’ve dressed it down a bit so that you can easily swap out a few key pieces to make your outfit go from day to night in just a few minutes.

Day to Night Outfits // Hello Rigby Seattle Fashion Blog
Disclosure: Thank you so much to 7 Charming Sisters for partnering with me on this post! All thoughts and opinions are my own.

The first thing I did was grab a few pieces of jewelry I know would easily transition from day to night. I discovered this pretty Free Hearted Black Lace Choker and Semisweet Ring from 7 Charming Sisters, the cutest online jewelry boutique created by seven “work sisters” who have been colleagues for more than ten years. The sisters are: Paula, the elegant Classy Chick, Kim, the vivacious Life of the Party, Jennifer, the dedicated Fashionista, Donalda, the flirtatious Social Butterfly, Jessica, the Smart and Sexy Nerd, Kimberly, the cute Girl Next Door and Melissa, the sporty Super Mom.

How to Make New Gal Pals in Adulthood

With today being Galentine’s Day, I thought it only made sense to share some thoughts on friendship. In my post-college years, I realized how difficult it was to make friends as an adult. The opportunities to reach out and find new female and male friends is just not there quite as often. You get up, go to work, come home, and repeat. Unless you happen to make friends at the office, at your local lunch spot, or during your everyday errands along the way, it can be a challenge.

How to Meet New Friends in Adulthood // Hello Rigby Seattle Fashion Blog Photos by Vivian Hsu Photography

After hosting a Galentine’s Brunch event with Bissinger’s Chocolatier at Bottlehouse in Seattle’s Madrona neighborhood this weekend, I came to realize how fortunate I am to have made so many new friends during this stage of life. It’s not easy to put yourself out there, and it can be hard for an introvert like me to feel comfortable introducing myself to strangers. Joining friends over a glass of bubbly and chocolate (may I add, the new Bissinger’s Chocolate Covered Bing Cherries are probably the best thing I’ve discovered in awhile? Seriously, in love!) was the perfect way to celebrate Galentine’s Day, a day for celebrating the special gal pals in your life.

If you’re not quite yet feeling like you have as many gal pals in your life as you’d like, I totally get it. I felt the same way a few years ago. Fortunately through blogging and exploring my adult interests, I have been able to cultivate a small but amazing group of people I can call close friends. It wasn’t without a few stumbles though, so if you want to know a few surefire ways to make new friends, today I’m sharing my suggestions and road-tested ways of finding them!
