BLOGGER EVENTS RECAP

I finally went to my first blogger event last week and I am so glad I finally took the plunge! The fashion blogosphere in DC is pretty lackluster since DC isn't the most fashionable of cities...at all. Finding a group of fashion lovers has been a bit difficult, but I feel like I am finally in the loop! The fabulous members of CapFABB and I got together for CapFABBAcademy "Make It a Business" which was a total blast, not only did we learn a lot but we got to socialize, mingle and Cuba Libre DC hosted a happy hour for us! The venue for the evening was the new CityCenterDC and we had the panel discussion in one of the retail spaces still under construction (we spent plenty of time guessing which fabulous store the space would eventually house, with Kate Spade and Herm├Ęs almost completed on either side we had our fingers crossed for a Chanel!) 
^Some goodies to start the night^
^The lineup for the evenings panel discussion^
 ^These ladies were so inspiring and informative. Plus the venue, so cool!^


On Saturday, Macy's at Tyson's Corner Center was having their "Fashion Rocks" fashion show and since I had some items to return and wanted to check out the malls new renovations and metro access I decided to just go ahead and RSVP. The show was great but the after party was even better, I had so much fun socializing and California Pizza Kitchen catered, can you say yum!
 ^It was such an energetic event, and inspired me to have this weeks Friday Finds feature some of my favorite looks/pieces from the show. Make sure you stop by for some fabulous Fall inspiration!^


Lastly, on Sunday I met up with a bunch of local fashion bloggers for brunch at La Madeleine and to preview a new makeup line. Unfortunately the lighting was horrendous so no pictures from inside the restaurant turned out well :( 
^Some of the products from the line, O'Couture Beauty! Let's just say I came home with some goodies :)^
^I got to see this fabulous lady again, which only made the event that much better. Maddy is the voice behind Forever Maddy B^
^Plus, the gorgeous Kesha from Styled by Kesha joined us at the end of the event for pictures!^
 ^Blogger brunch attire: Charlotte Russe Blazer (similar) // Socialite Jumpsuit via Nordstrom Rack (similar) // Charles by Charles David Pumps // Forever 21 Clutch (similar) // H&M Necklace (similar)

If you are a blogger and have yet to join a community of local bloggers or attend a blogger event I encourage you to do so! I put it off for quite some time and really wish I hadn't, it is such a great way to get to know like minded people and makes your blogger life feel way more legit!

xo, Jasmin
