Queens of the keystroke

29 Apr

Last night I attended “Fashion Tweet-Up” – a speaking event that was hosted by the San Francisco Fashion & Merchant’s Alliance. Blake and I had a few minutes to kill after work, so before diving into the discussion, we frolicked around the Financial District for a bit and stopped in at Cosmopolitans for, well, cosmopolitans. Let’s face it – there’s nothing like a stiff mixed drink to ease the butterflies…

(from L to R, the bloggers behind Clipta, J,Crewaholics, The Chic Spy, The Curvy Fashionista, The Coveted, OnTheRacks, Calivintage, Modelina Michele)

The panel was held at the giant that is One Market (across from the Ferry Building), and the focus was how blogging and technology are influencing the fashion landscape. Shockingly enough, I was asked to be on the panel a few weeks prior… to say I was in good company would be a drastic understatement! 

It was a joy seeing Marie of the Curvy Fashionista, and meeting Jennine of The Coveted and Erin of Calivintage was a true pleasure. Everyone on the panel was so sweet and willing to share their unique experiences and insights into the world of fashion blogging.  The audience posed some great questions and I definitely picked up a few good ideas for OnTheRacks along the way.  While I am relieved to have the panel discussion behind me (I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t freakishly nervous), it was a great experience and quite an honor for a newbie like me!

    Thank you!! =)
    No, I never worked for LF, but I can see why you might think that! There is a store a block and a half from my house, so it’s kind of become my go-to shopping spot. And they have really great sales 2x per year so I stock up!
