Hello everybody! Happy Monday!
I hope you all had a good weekend! Mine was not nearly so productive as I would have hoped… isn’t that always the way? I did have a really cool Friday night, though. I went to a blogger event in San Francisco for Tech Fashion Week. It was really, really cool. It was totally outside my comfort zone going alone (and to be clear I spent the first 20 minutes I was there by the cheese plate doing my thing before I had enough lactose-induced courage to introduce myself to people) but by the end of the night I was so glad I had gone. The bloggers on the panel were amazing (you can check them all out via their profile here) and I loved hearing their perspectives on how to work with brands, connect with other bloggers, and maintain your unique voice in the very saturated world that is fashion blogging.
I also met a few amazing people from the audience! From entrepreneurs and brand reps to other bloggers and just those curious about the blogging world, the audience was full of intriguing people. I’m so looking forward to getting to know some of my new friends a little bit better! One of the women I met was there representing Lovia Collection and discussed how their bags are made from recycled items that are waste from other industries. Their stuff is gorgeous (I mean, really stunning) and I love their mission. There’s such an emphasis on sustainability here in SF, and I really appreciate the dialogue around taking sustainable practices from one part of my life (I mean, I recycle…) and thinking about how to act in a sustainable way when it comes to fashion. Food for thought, for sure.
As always, thanks so much for stopping by! Cheers to a new week!
