I went to my first blogger event! (insert squeal of joy here) I’m a newbie in the blogosphere so I was really excited to received an invitation to the Sonsi BeYOUtiful Blogger Pop-Up Party. It was a part of the events for Full Figured Fashion Week, so I was anxious to rub elbows with bloggers I admire and meet some that weren’t on my radar.
I had to head back home after the boat ride Wednesday night to work the next day. So I got up bright and early Friday morning with my girl Quita Bishop to head to NYC to meet up with our friends. I knew the night would be spent in heels so for the pop-up party comfort was of the utmost importance. I opted for a cute top, tank, comfortable jeans, and flats.
We got to NYC safe and sound. I met up with one of my favorite bloggers, who happens to be a Philly girl, Corrinn Lichet from www.thefullerfigure.com. We headed over to the loft and were really impressed with what we found.
Sonsi spoiled the bloggers with a bit of pampering. They had two makeup artists there beating faces. One was Tara Taylor, winner of the FFFWeek Industry Award for Makeup Artist of the Year. They had a manicure station so everyone could get pretty and polished. Free bra fittings were available to make sure “the girls” are in the right place. And I can forget that Luke Jones from Lucas Pictures was there taking pictures!
Sonsi pulled many of representatives from the brands they carry to the event. One of my faves was this fall preview from SWAK Designs! I fell in love with one of the dresses and I definitely think I’ll be treating myself to it whenever it is available for sale.
It’s great that they listen to their customers. They have a feature on their site where customers can vote for the design they think should be manufactured. How cool is that? www.swakdesigns.com
Full Figured Fashion Week and Sonsi really set the bar high. I hope all the blogger events I attend are this fun and well put together. It was an experience I’ll remember for years to come.
