So, some of you may know about this little group, and some of you may not. Last February I met two lovely ladies at the Independent Fashion Blogger’s convention in NYC. At the after party at the Chelsea Hotel, we realized we were the only attendees from the NY Metro area. We decided to meet for brunch the next day (Blogger Brunch anyone?) where our creative minds went wild.
We knew there were many fashion bloggers in NYC and thought it would be cool to find a way to meet them, go shopping together, go to events together…and thus, the NYC Fashion Blogger’s MeetUp Group was born.
Since then we’ve had some great events for our members from trunk shows, to fashion shows, to store openings and line previews. The group has grown into something the three of us couldn’t have imagined. Now, five months later, we teamed up with Women’s Mafia to create an exclusive event for 25 of our bloggers. With Arrojo Salons doing hair, make up, and eyelashes, Svedka vodka on drinks, Lora Condon reading excerpts from her best selling book Spa Wars (and supplying us with signed copies!), J Rudy Lewis giving us pieces from his jewelry collection, and Pop Up Studio taking fun pictures! It was quite the opposite of humbling to Yanil, Monroe, and I as we watched our baby of a group hit the highest of it’s peak.

So, if you’re a member of IFB and a blogger from the NY Metro area (we take New Jersey too!) feel free to check out the group, request to join, and I hope to meet you soon!! Also, if you’re form NY and looking to add some fun/spice/etc to your gathering, event or party, I fully advise Pop Up Studio…they even supply props!
For now, though, we bid you adieu.
