Indiana Adams from Adored Austin was kind enough to invite me to participate in an Austin fashion bloggers brunch and boutique crawl yesterday and I had SO MUCH FUN!! First, I got to meet two lovely ladies I’d been interacting with online forever, Janette from Fashion Loves People, and Pamela from Market Publique. I also met a new friend, Brooke from Fashism (I am still obsessed with her Sanita clogs and vintage dress – more on that later), and many more of my fellow Austin fashion bloggers.
After the brunch we went on a boutique crawl to several of the fabulous boutiques on 2nd street like Eliza Page, Girl next Door, and Estilo. I had to cut out a bit early, so I didn’t make it to Congress, but I had such a wonderful time! Local restaurant, Cru, invited us in for champagne and chocolate covered strawberries (so indulgent for the middle of a weekday 🙂 ) and the Etsy Austin girls gave us a fabulous goodie bag filled with lovely pieces handmade by local artists (more on that later too!). Indiana did an amazing job organizing everything, and here’s a short video from our local News8 featuring her and the event. (I’m in there for a split second – a side view of me in my military jacket, hair in a ponytail because it looks awful…)
Enjoy!! and congratulations to Indiana!!
Gretchen–it was great to meet you yesterday and chat with you at Cru. I took your recommendation and checked out the Harper’s Bazaar website and their trends advice. I particularly liked their Fabulous at Every Age section, especially since their recent slideshows focus on color, which resonates with me. ‘Til we meet again, happy shopping!
