The Dress Up Soirée NYC

by jennine on February 19, 2009

Alright… I’m so sorry, I’ve been MIA since I’ve been in New York… seriously, it’s been a whirlwind, but I’m reading all your comments, and sooo appreciate them. One of the things I was doing was organizing the Dress Up Soirée NYC for my other site Independent Fashion Bloggers. We had an amazing turnout, and it was great to meet all the other fashion bloggers who were in the area. Everyone was just amazing and so much fun. I really am looking forward to the next IFB Dress Up Soiree in London organized by Mademoiselle Robot. If it’s anything like the New York party, we’re going to have a great time.

Here are some photos from the event… There is a great contest on Modepass, where you can vote for your favorite blogger (not me, I’m running it) so please vote! Some prizes include the Vivienne Tam edition HP Mini, clothes from Complex Geometries, Norwegian Wood, Gabrielle and Schwan, a Gift Certificate to Anica Boutique… so support your bloggers, they work really hard, and don’t get paid much. Click on the images to vote.  Photos by the awesome Dustin Fenstermacher.

It was so much fun! Thanks for everything, Jennine.

Also, since Jennine is being shy, I posted a few pics of her outfit on our blog:

Wendy is in some of them too!

Hey jen, wonder what you were wearing…
And the fur trimmed, orange coat looks so elegant.

A HUGE THANKS to you, Jennine for bringing us all together and opening the doors for so many amazing opportunities! I feel lucky to have met you in person and even more lucky to go shopping with you! ;-)


Leo February 20, 2009 at 6:08 pm

What!? Dress up? Soiree? Fun? Is that part of life too?? Is that what all the pretty “not so appropriate for work” pretty clothes in my closet are for?? Darn!… I knew I was missing out on the good stuff…:-(

Cool stuff! Maybe next for me…


Tamia February 21, 2009 at 1:15 pm

This looks so fun! And, of course, everyone looks great-what else would you expect from a group of fashion bloggers partying in NYC?


Beka February 21, 2009 at 2:19 pm

Well, I for one, had a fabulous time. It was so great to meet everyone. It’s easy to get caught up in the virtual world of Twitter and blog reading, but to meet some of the bloggers I admire most was incredible. Thanks for all of your hard work! I can’t wait until the next IFB meet up!


Prêt-à-Porter P February 22, 2009 at 5:13 pm

everyone looks so lovely :)


Merily February 23, 2009 at 12:01 pm

Wow, looks like you had so much fun.
And everybody looked stunning! :)


ambika February 23, 2009 at 1:33 pm

Looks like *so* much fun! I wish I had the cojones to organize one for the northwest!


hanako66 February 23, 2009 at 2:28 pm

Everyone looks amazing!


The Girl March 3, 2009 at 12:57 am

Great blog! And great outfits! Can you please tell me more about the white dress with the black ribbon in the back? Any idea where it is from?


Aja March 4, 2009 at 12:59 pm

I really wished I hadn’t been up to my ears with work. Looks like a really good time. Darn it.
