Sunday Best: Seattle’s only style editor on mirror selfies and summer

Seattle Achieved fashion editor Zoe Sayler hates owning her photo taken, but she loves having her image. Mirror selfies — a millennial diary slipping out of design and style as large-res phone cameras proliferate — present “the means to hone, or get a real grasp, on how you want the world to see you,” Sayler suggests. “And that is all, I imagine, that design and style is.”

Sayler could be the only Seattle journalist with the title “style editor,” a work that invokes New York catwalks. (Sayler earlier interned for The Seattle Times, wherever we became good friends.) 

“Seattle design,” on the other hand, evokes Blundstone boots, Patagonia jackets and Carhartt beanies — not specifically higher trend. At any time Sayler tells someone what her work is, she feels the load to disprove that.

“I want to represent both equally the journal and the metropolis properly, due to the fact it is not as unfashionable as persons like to say,” Sayler states. Area designers like Anna Dong and Dan McLean establish their possess aesthetics with no competing with “a million different men and women who are striving to make it in the actual very same area of interest they are.”

In this mirror selfie, Sayler’s sporting a “Paloma” skort and sporting activities bra from Seattle eco-helpful activewear business Girlfriend Collective and a sheer leading from Fremont Classic Shopping mall. Sayler has not been submitting selfies as a great deal a short while ago for the reason that of wintertime, gray spring and Juneuary — but she can really feel factors about to transform.

“Just the thought of summertime has produced me want to choose additional selfies,” Sayler states.
