IFB’s Dress Up Soiree…

Posted in Events, Fashion, Outfit by yoshi on September 15, 2009

the other night i attended the independent fashion blogger’s dress up soiree. to tell you the truth, i was a bit nervous. why? because women scare me.

ESPECIALLY stylish women.

i was expecting many dirty, snobby looks, but i couldn’t have been any more wrong (<–is that even grammatically correct?!)

as vern and i walked down the catwalk to stand in an unexpected line to get in, i started getting nervous, thinking “omg, am i not properly attired? will these girls snub me? will i even belong? will they wonder ‘what the fuck is that chick doing here?’ “- shit like that.. because as i said, women scare me.

HOWEVER – the event was specTACULAR! although, i think vern and i were really the only ones TRYING to get wasted, but hey, blogger lives usually allow for little social interaction unless its purely for networking – didn’t know that huh? lol – anyway – the girls i met were fucking AWESOME and i was able to meet many of the faces behind the blogs i follow daily.

Last night I had the great opportunity to smooze it up with my fellow fashion bloggers at the Independent Fashion Blogger’s Dress Up Soiree! This is IFB’s second NYFW event and although it was a bit crowded (I don’t believe they anticipated such a HUGE turnout!) we all had a blast getting to meet each other in person – and of course show off our outfits =)

The Panelists: Susie Bubble from Style Bubble, Gala Darling, Wendy Brandes, Danny Roberts, Jessica from What I Wore, Geri Hirsch from Because I’m Addicted, Helen Zhu from Chictopia, Crosby Noricks from PR Couture, Tricia Royal from Bits n Bobbins and Wardrobe Remix… and Jordana from Clutch22 moderated!
