After I moved away from Seattle in 2013, a new storefront moved in downtown and I hadn’t gotten a chance to visit it until this past June when I returned home. I think before they officially had a store, Moorea Seal was completely online, which is how I kept up to date on them through various social media networks including Pinterest. If there was ever a store that embodied me the best, this would be it. When Anna and I finally made a trip to the actual store, I couldn’t handle myself. Two steps in, I threw my hands up in the air and nearly startled the girl up at the front. Everything. Was. Perfect. Anna is such a good friend because she was completely patient as I perused every single corner, shelf, and display of the store. The thing about these types of stores though is that you don’t want to miss anything. I had to be smart with my wallet though because boy, was this store dangerous. I would look at a pair of shoes and say to myself “Yep, these are the one.” And then three seconds later, have my eyes land on a pair of perfect brown sandals that I knew just had to come back with me to California.
While I was there, I also had the opportunity to meet Moorea Seal herself and to let her know how much I adored her shopfront. Don’t worry, we’ll be back! There are more things to buy!
