I met Katy Flynn while attending the Twig & Snip Fall Showcase at Sassafras last fall. She introduced me to her 4-Way Reversible Dress and I immediately fell in love. One dress you can wear four different ways? Sign me up! I didn’t purchase a dress that day, but I made sure to put it on my wish list. Cut to last week when I received a personal invitation from Katy herself to stop by Sassafras for her summer showcase.
The showcase took place from Friday, June 3rd to Sunday, June 6th. I decided to take a weekend drive to Seattle on Sunday afternoon to get a little shopping done. If you’ve never been to Sassafras, it’s the perfect boutique to shop clothing and accessories made by some of Seattle’s most talented local designers.
As soon as I made my way into the store, I made a beeline for Katy and her rack of amazing dresses made of rayon jersey, stretch lace, and bamboo jersey. “I’m curvy, so I like to design for curvy women,” Katy explained as I stood at the rack wearing one of the reversible dresses and feeling super comfortable. As a curvy woman myself, I’m usually drawn to dresses that show off my curves while still keeping everything covered so this dress is perfect for me. This time, I decided not to leave without a dress in hand and I’m so excited to style the dress for work, some fun events I’ll be attending and for my trip to New Orleans next month.
