Planned Spontaneity


I was delighted to be interviewed recently by Rebecca Teagarden for The Seattle Times' Pacific NW Magazine. My interview, Planned Spontaneity, includes tips on how to make parties fun, modern and easy!

My big thing is spontaneous entertaining. As a working mom, I don’t always have time to plan lavish dinner parties.  Sometimes, I prefer to invite friends over for drinks, charcuterie and cheeses or for a potluck dinner.  These kind of parties don’t take much planning.  The real goal is to bring the people we love together, break bread and share some good times. We crave that so much—especially around our winter holidays!

Rosanna Biannual Warehouse Sale December 7th 9 am-3 pm

Come early Saturday, December 7th, 9am-3pm for our free Biannual Warehouse Sale, 6755 East Marginal Way South, Building B, Seattle, WA  98108! Rare and hard-to-find Rosanna pieces (as well as some new surprises!) will be at amazing prices - perfect for gifts for Christmas, birthdays, anniversaries, bridal showers, graduations, weddings, and Mother's Day! (There will be complimentary Seattle's Best Coffee to keep you warm and cookies from Pacific Food Importers.)

This year we are taking donations of food (especially needed are protein items like chili, stew and beans), unwrapped educational toys, and books for families of Providence Health & Services' Regina House, a Seattle nonprofit food and clothing bank. 

Providence Regina House's food and clothing bank is in the South Park Neighborhood Center and serves over 500 families every week. And Regina House families are not homeless and unemployed…these are WORKING families, who simply can’t make ends meet. Everyone who brings a donation will receive a raffle ticket towards the chance to win a basket of beautiful Rosanna items. There will be opportunities to purchase more raffles for chances to win and to help support Regina House!

*Please note the warehouse store will be closed Friday, December 6th in preparation.

Can't wait to see you all there!

Déjà Vogue: Breakfast Coat

The cold has arrived and it is time to bring out the winter coat and hat! Flaunt some style like Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's with a bold color to contrast the weather. Don’t forget the sunglasses for those crisp sunny days and finish it off with some pearls. Très chic, darling.
