Focus on Fashion with Gary Foy

If the producers of Sex in the City decided to create a new show about 20-somethings, instead of fashion stylist Patricia Field, they would no doubt hire Seattle Goodwill's own Gary Foy. With a background that includes six years as a clothing designer and another two as the buyer and owner of a vintage clothing store, Gary oversees our fashion forward, Fashion Focus departments--in fact he was their originator. Over the last few weeks Gary has been doubly busy, readying our new University District store for its Grand Opening, today, November 5, 2008 at 4 pm. Please come by, meet Gary, and see all the wonderful vintage and contemporary clothing, shoes and accessories we're offering up everyday on the Ave!

I asked Gary to take a moment out of his hectic schedule to wander behind-the-scenes through the racks of the Glitter Sale and put together a few festive outfits for us. Here are the wonderful looks he came up with:

Gary paired this ruffle chiffon tunic from BCBG Max Azria with a gray sequin shrug and jeans embellished with black beads. It's a polished, flirty look.

For out-on-the-town shopping, he matched this rhinestone sweatshirt with a black leather skirt and a black belt tipped with silver, then topped it all off with a red leather jacket. He said it would also look great with skinny jeans and pumps or flats.

Gary was drawn to this white faux fur jacket and black sequin skirt. He styled it with a beaded wool cowl neck and a silver and black Western-style belt.

And for a dressy night out, Gary chose this Jessica McClintock spaghetti strap asymmetrical dress with a fabulous balloon skirt and finished the look with a taupe wrap secured by a black rhinestone brooch.
