Renegade Style Blogger Meet-Up Recap


Renegade Blogger Meet Up was a blast; it was awesome to see my concept of a casual hang-out for bloggers come together. I definitely owe a big thank you to Jessica and Erin for jumping on board and helping me figure out the details--and thanks to everyone who showed up as well! I definitely want to organize and plan another one next year too!

Yaneldys was a real sweetheart and brought homemade red velvet cupcakes for everyone (I had two!). People filtered in and out; we had several International bloggers drop by, definitely a lot of cool New Yorkers, and some of the Delightful Dozen ladies were in attendance. Even with the crowd I think I managed to not be too awkward--although I of course introduced myself to people I knew and who knew me. I don't know why I'm always saying "hi, my name is..." when someone I actually know walks up, but I am a frequent offender!
I think my favorite part of the meet-up was towards the end as the group dwindled and I felt less pressure as "host" to float around. Then it was just relaxing on the grass with Erin, Emily, Hannah, and Landon. It was such a nice, relaxing time and makes me wish I hadn't left when I did to throw myself into the madness of Fashion Night Out. I think if visit New York for fashion week again I'll focus more on low-key events and people I want to hang-out with rather than all the hyped-up occasions. In all honesty, I lately find many of the big events too stressful and hectic to enjoy.

  24. Ah I see you got your hands on the not so famous owl bag by Amliya. I recently acquired a Black Beetle Car Bag from the same company and did a little post on my blog about the fascinating but sad story. I'm still looking for the black owl in Canada. It is very unique. :)
