Hello Rigby is a fun refreshing blog about style, beauty, life, and Jenn's dog Rigby! We were lucky enough to learn more about Jenn and what makes Hello Rigby so special!
If a friend from out of town was coming to visit and you were taking them shopping in Seattle, where would you take them and why?
I would take them to Pike Place! While it's not a traditional "shopping" destination, it's fun to eat around the Market, pick up some flowers, and check out all of the artisan goods being sold by local entrepreneurs.
What is your favorite local boutique to shop in Seattle and why?
When I lived on Seattle's Eastside, I loved visiting Simply Chic at Factoria Mall. They have trendy pieces at affordable prices that felt unique. For gifts, I can always recommend Fireworks, a local chain that has everything from silly cards and gag gifts to fashion accessories and locally made products.
If you could to shop anywhere in the world where would it be and why?
I would love to go back to Paris and shop the flea markets! It's something I didn't have a chance to do while we were there last summer and wish I would have been able to.
What is your favorite fashion trend happening now?
I'm obsessed with chokers. I've probably worn them almost every day this past week!
Name 3 items in your purse right now that you never leave the house without!
My wallet, my keys, and a lip color. I don't leave the house without my phone but more often than not it's in my hand. ;)
What inspired you to start your fashion blog?
I started blogging about 3 years ago for fun. I honestly was just bored one day and saw a lot of friends and family enjoying hobbies like music and video games, so I thought I'd take up blogging! I had no idea what I got myself into, and it took me about 6 months to a year before I was writing on a regular basis.
What is your favorite part about being a fashion blogger?
I love connecting with other bloggers! It's been a great way to meet other like-minded women in the city (I work in tech, which is very male dominated) and beyond.
Use 3 words to describe your personal fashion.
Casual, feminine, and attainable
If you were to describe Seattle's city style, how would you describe it?
As a whole, Seattle style is very casual and laid back. Yes, there are some people who take that to mean shorts year round with socks and sandals, but expect to see more hoodies, jeans, and flannels for the majority of the year. We also have our fair share of hippies, hipsters, and edgy urbanites who have a style all their own.
What are your wardrobe essentials?
Since it's officially fall now, I'll go with my fall essentials: a good pair of skinny jeans, a pair of leather ankle boots (no leakage in the rain!), and a versatile faux leather moto jacket.
Tell us something unique about you!
My first official job was sales associate at JCPenney in the lingerie department. Probably the most interesting job I've had, as I was also a certified bra fitter. I'll just leave it at that. ;)
