Tacoma is not my side of the City but when Fashion Distrcit NW invited The Citizen Life to cover Cars and Couture Fashion Show presented by Architech held at LeMay- America’s Car Museum, I knew I had to make an appearance.

Okay, so I wasn’t modeling, but from the vibe I got as soon as I walked in the door, I might as well have been. My guest and I got to walk down the runway itself as we mingled with other fashionistas such as Frilancy Hoyle and the Seattle Gents.
