The IFB Dress Up Soirée

by jennine on September 23, 2009

The first two Dress Up Soirées last season in New York and London were great, intimate, refreshing, a new turn in fashion…but nothing, and I do mean NOTHING could have prepared me for the turn out and spirit that came with this season’s Dress Up Soiree and Evolving Influence panel discussion (I tried to do an intro, but I cried in front of everyone). This time around having amazing sponsors like Microsoft and Moxsie.com allowed us to put forth a great event, and with the help of Jordana this would not be possible to accomplish, and the panelists….

Helen Zhu CEO of Chictopia.com ❤ Erika Miller SEO Manager of Elle.com ❤ Julia Kung of Moxsie.com ❤ Debbie Anderson of Microsoft ❤ Tricia Royal of Wardrobe Remix ❤ Wendy Brandes of Wendy Brandes Jewelery and Christian Francis Roth ❤ Jessica Schroeder of What I Wore ❤ Geri Hirsch of Because I’m Addicted ❤Crosby Noricks of PR Couture ❤ Carolyn Hsu of Daily Obsession ❤ Susie Lau of Style Bubble

It was so great to see everyone all together like this, and to meet some of my heroes and long time blog friends. The whole atmosphere was just, I don’t know synergetic? I just kept getting chills in a very good way. As people started to show up for the panel Evolving Influence, it really honed in the need for fashion bloggers to meet in person, that the volume of our community is growing, and with that we’re also creating a culture of professionalism.

And last but not least…what did Jordana and I wear? I wore a combination of Market Publique Vintage, Top Shop and Also… Jordana wore a Jessica Milton dress and Jeffrey Campell boots.
